Frankly, it does not strike me as a typical Crossfit functional movement, but what do I know? I show up and do what I'm told.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In

9/23 WOD

Snatch Balance: 3-3-3

Followed by:
Tabata
PVC Sit Ups (feet anchored)
- Row for Calories
- Push Ups

65#-65#-75#. Mindful of the post on full ROM, I stayed light on these in order to squat to full depth. It worked quite well for me.

Tabata PVC sit-ups = 12. With all due respect to our trainers, this is a lame movement. I understand the intent, but the PVC just gets in the way. The same result would be obtained by anchoring our feet and crossing our arms across our chests. I started with 12 and stuck with it each round.

Tabata row = 4. This was pathetic on my part, I should have achieved 5 for sure, if not 6.

Tabata push-ups = 9. I had done a heavy sit-up and push-up WOD two days earlier, so I picked a number and went for it, which was 9. First few rounds, the 9 was easy, but it got more difficult by the end, and I was barely able to crank them out the last two rounds.

I think its good. I do that, plus other shoulder and rear delt work b/c crossfit doesn't seem to have much; Im thinking itll make up for any imbalance??

(I still have probs w/my shoulders being sore, not sure if its just that I'm old and I'll never be good at this stuff, or something that can be worked on. Pullupus today, we'll see - that aggravates them since April).

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In

thank you JB. summer, its gone already!!



09.24.2010-Friday

Warmup: Run 400, all that other stuff

WOD:
"Helen"
3 rounds for time of:
400 meter run
21 kettlebell swings - 24kg (16kg)
12 pull-ups
16:45! One of those days, what was I thinking?! One of my worst 'girls' to begin with, this was a horror story beginning to end. I was starving & ate fat just before (saw it posted on a gym board, fat & protein pre-wod - I usually do carbs/fruit) - BIG mistake!
Could def. use a heavier kb all unbroken & my forerarms weren't killing as usual. But the runs & pullups killed me - stomach hurt & felt sluggish and slow + pullups were horrible, pullups slowed me down the most. You can't be "careful" and kip. Ate something afterward.

Pullup Kip & DH practice (avoiding these for weeks but went fine, go figure!)
Squat prax - worked up to 145# and that didn't feel bad at all...surprised.

oh yeah I jerked 120# again the other day and it didn't seem so hard? Need to video myself, I think I could do more. Does strict or pushpress help that? Maybe need to do some of those...

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In

Deb,

I can relate to your "pre-workout" eat wrong! I did the same the other day and then went for a run and thought I was going to die from the inside out!

On vacation with the family for 4 days in Kamiah Idaho. I have been riding my dirt-bike and in the last couple days rode the MTB for 15 or so miles (yikes the roads around here are steeeeeeep!

Looking forward to doing the Fight Gone Bad on Monday and as well starting a BS regiment to build strength.

You all have a great weekend!
