This time placed me 8th out of 17 in the M45-49 bracket. Not bad for only the second 5K I've ever run; not my 2nd "5K race," my 2nd time ever running 5K. I think there's something to this Crossfit "specializing in not specializing...."

Jeff,

I'll hook you up. Look for a FB message. It works.

25 minutes cutting the grass with a push mower wearing 30 lb. weight vest.

Not the greatest WOD, but on 4 hours' sleep (GO HAWKS!!), somethin's better than nothin'. Wendler 5/3/1 DL day (week 2) tomorrow.

Thanks. No, I'm a terrible swimmer (which is why I'm doing this: http://www.crossfitpacificcoast.com/...los-banos-pool) (WFS) I was wondering if I would bump into you there, or anywhere for that matter. We ought to meet one of these days.

Bill, I messed up here - - was thinking dead lifts. My all time best BS was 245#, but with poor form and back in my college (or shortly after) days. I am sooooo lucky I never hurt myself, because I did these wrong for 40 years! Form is good and solid now, so I am really pleased to be "earning" the increased weight.

Great advice on the K2Es! I'll have to try that, but perhaps that is what I do now (I can't visualize the motion in my mind right now ). I've found that I start swinging, so if I time my next rep correctly, it counteracts the swing completely and I can just hoist my knees upwards (in theory).

Nice work on that AMRAP WOD!
Stephen- 315 is darn good for Dead lifts! I've yet to break 300#! (SOON!)
Hope the K2E's work out! The big key is keeping the upper body LOOSE (Easier said than done!)

WU:
400m run
Forward & Reverse walking Lunges
Inch worms (3 push ups)
Spidermans
10 Air Squats
10 K2E's

Dead lifts 5-5-5-5
175, 185, 195, 205, 215 (Would've done more, but my back started hurting. I video taped it & saw how bad my form was! GRRR!)

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In

Jim,

Outstanding 5K time!

Bill,

Thanks. As for keeping my upper body loose, I think the only thing loose in my upper body is a few marbles in my brain......I've got the flexibility of a piece of glass.....

Hey Bill,

Maybe my recent experience will help. I got a little hamstring happy with my DL form.

I used to be very squatty, too upright, not recruiting my hamstrings enough. Then I adjusted my form by not initiating the lift until I felt tension in my hamstrings, mainly by pushing my butt back a lot/keeping my head up.

Problem was, I was too bent over at the waist, and not also recruiting my hips and quads enough. I was straining my back constantly and could barely get 300 up (down from a p.r. of 340).

The DL is a very natural lift, and someone told me something recently, it's really neither a hamstring lift nor a quad lift, but a hip lift.

That said, I am now approaching it by keeping my head up/good lumbar curve, but wanting to feel equal engagement of my quads and hamstrings before initiating the lift. A) I think this is injury-free form, and b) the poundages are much easier when initiating the weight up from the ground with all your lower body muscles.

Now my 1RM is going through the roof (355).

Also, do a lot of pullups and lunges, good assistive exercises for leg and grip strength.
