    I'm about to do the toes to bar part for a while this evening.

    Seriously, I will try the workout, as long as the handstand push ups can be done against a wall at first. o_O

    Of course. I actually hang a loop of rope, wrap my feet in it and use that to stabilize and add a little help when needed.

    That's just dumb. Sorry. Find a better name and maybe I'll get onboard.

    The crossfit WOD was silly today. I almost died today doing it. By round 6 I was doing like 5 reps and then breaking. Silly.

    Today is more traditional weight training. Don't have the intensity for a crossfit one today after playing hockey the last three nights in a row.

    I don't know about that. I have learned through thru years how to train so that I don't over train and I don't sit still too long either. Balance is key, right?

    Here was Monday:
    WOD:

    For time:
    50-calorie row
    50 box jump overs, 24 inch
    50 deadlifts, 180 lb.
    50 wall-ball shots, 20-lb. ball
    50 ring dips
    50 wall-ball shots, 20-lb. ball
    50 deadlifts, 180 lb.
    50 box jump overs, 24 inch
    50-calorie row

    I modified it down to 35 reps for each because of my energy level and soreness. I know, sissy right?

    Tuesday I did weight training for Biceps ,Triceps and Abs.

    Tonight I have hockey so today is a rest day.

    Oh, to be young.

    I do find as I cross into my senior years that low rep, heavy weights are the ticket. Helps me with strength, mobility, and I believe, other things like weight control, and even cutting down on cold viruses - virtually none during the last two or three years.

    But key is to avoid injury, because every one takes months to heal.

    I do 5 sets at 5 reps three times a week: 235 lb back squat, 275 lb dead lift (5 singles), 145 bench and 125 OH press. If form is good, no injuries.

    I also do tree ascensions, of course. Pic of my home gym.[​IMG]

    This is getting good.

    Nice gym Mick! Tough routine too. You have an old shoulder injury or something? Bench is out of line with the other disciplines no?

    Marlin, is that your routine or from a gym you go to?

    I was the proverbial 98 pound weakling. Discovered weights at age 60. I guess I have no pecs or triceps to get beyond 145 bench. I heard that 245 is required for NFL players.

    I go to a cross fit gym 3 or 4 days a week but on weekends do wods that require no equipment. Im working on building a gym in my garage. Rogue fitness has some really nice stuff.
