Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In

crazy 45 minute wod there jim!

yesterday at the box was spent entirly on snatch with pvc. i think most of us were getting quite good by the end.

then choice either 4 minutes of double unders or a 1000m row.

since i suck at double unders i chose the 1000m 3:42

wondering what todays adventure will bring.........

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In

12/15 WOD

“Helen”
3 Rounds for Time of:
400 M Run
21 Kettelbell Swings (1.5/1)
12 Pull Ups

12:15 as Rx'd. Nearly a minute slower than back in June, that's not good. Runs slow, only the first round of KB swings done unbroken, and the outside pull-up bars were wet, making grip a real challenge (no more than 6 consecutive at any time). I have got to get my metcon kicked back into gear.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In

Michelle no need to feel intimidated. The scaling is the beauty part. The important part is you got it done & good on ya! (I scaled today can't do chest to bar and the 24 kg would kill me for deadlifts on Friday).

12.15.2010-Wednesday-Day 3

Row 500, squat, lunge, et al shoulder mobility & stretch

WOD:
5 rounds for time of:
30 kettlebell swings - 24kg (16kg)
10 pull-ups
((shedkickers, use the heavy kb and do chest to bar pull-ups))
16:13 Rx terrible time on this one. Big hands, long arms & torso.

Did some rows.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In

Michelle - NEVER feel intimidated about scaling!!! It's an attack of sanity in my book! (Now, if you're doing Whitten in under 4 minutes, you might want to scale up....)

Pat- I feel your pain.

My life is not my own this week. My nineteen year-old is in the hospital along with two brother-in-laws.

9 Dec:
WU:
200m run (felt good)
2x10
GHD situps
push ups
squats

Dynamic stretching
Frankenstein/toy soldier walks (2 Box lengths)
Spidermans (2 box lengths)
hip openers
high knees (2 box lengths)
butt kickers (2 box lengths)
skip for height
skip hip openers (2 box lengths)
inch worms (1 push up)

WOD:

AMRAP:
12 min:
9 35# Thrusters
5 Rope pull ups from lying down
(wanted to do rope climbs but my taped up hands were TOO slippery for me to get a grip!)

Completed 5 rounds & 5 Thrusters!

(tore off the tape & was able to to 2 rope ascents afterward just to prove I could do 'em!)
39 Burpees! (Yay! Burpees!)

15 Dec:
WU:

3x10
Blue band assisted pull ups
walking lunges
GHD situps

WOD:
"Nancy"
5 RFT:
400m run
15 reps 65# over head squats

20:57

Did this on July 16th. Clipped 54 seconds off that time AND that's with HEAVIER weight & a restroom break!! Still doin' "the Happy Dance"!

45 Burpees! (Yay! Burpees!)

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In

oh yeah, Jim thanks (yesterday wasn't bad, I heard it wrecked a lot of people (?) & Whitten looks awful!!! Pat, looks like everybody's busy - what happened to J Burch??)

I swung the guys 70# kb today - hysterical!! American swings, 2-3x - when that thing's coming down, it's COMING DOWN!!! Almost pulled me into an involuntary forward roll!!

Wow William, sorry to hear that - hope everything works out ok.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In

michelle---don't worry about scaling. the important thing is that you are out there doing it.

12x2...16"box squat 185 lbs

10-5-10 big *** green band good mornings on mid height bar

then

21-15-9

225 dead lift and modified push ups which turned into air squats when i tweaked my elbow on the pushups (which i find out afterwards it is a pinched tendon...just spent the last hour with an ice pack on)

6:42 with time included to assess my elbow and change to air squats.

morning work out was 14 minutes of upper body sled pull work with 45 lbs on the sled.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In

William I hope all is ok with your son and extended family.

Thanks to all for your comments on scaling. I'm moving my way up the scales slowly but surely. And thanks for posting your WOD's.

Spanked the 25 year old younguns this morning, we were all scaled the same.

3 rounds for time:
10 strict blue band pull-ups
30 GHD back extensions
4:30
