Taifun, I'm seeing a physical therapist right now, about twice a week, and it seems to be helping. My elbows do feel better, but I still can't do pull-ups without pain. My P.T. says that my slow recovery is just part of pushin' 50 years old. I'm trying to be patient and work back into an upper body ...

Hey Howell,

Nice quote from C.S. Lewis, he's one of my favorite authors, but I can't place the quote.. where's it from?

Welcome to simplefit, by the way.

revamping my workout..

After an early rest week followed by a week spent chasing elk around western Wyoming (unsuccessfully.. so far), I'm ready to go again, but my elbows still aren't. I'm going to temporarily switch to Crossfit's beginner's strength program found here: http://www.crossfit.com/journal/library/BeginnersMa...

Thanks, Dan Everything you've said makes sense. Unfortunately, even parallel grip hurts right now, so I guess I'll need to rest and work back into pullups slowly, using mostly a palms facing grip. Does anyone know of a good sub for pullups other then body-rows? I've heard just trying to hold a hand-...

You'll get there, Andy. Don't forget to use a variety of grips too, my elbows prefer parallel.. or at least they did.

10/03/07 workout

Modified L4D2, wk.1 12 leg lifts 12 pushups 20 squats 5 rds in 7:31 I don't think the leg lifts are anywhere near equivalent to pullups, but they do take time and my middle needs the work too. I'm going to try to find some velcro straps to put around my forearms below the elbows for test day. I've h...

Speaking just for myself, here. I'd take all three days to do the 100 burpees! :lol:

Good luck.

10/1/07 workout

I have to rest my elbows. I can't grip & pull anything towards myself without pain, not even a coffee cup. :( So, I've decided to modify L4 so I'm not doing pullups and when my elbows heal, I'll repeat L4 subbing body rows at first and then gradually pullups. Wk. 1, mod. L4D1, 31 rounds. I subbed 6 ...

First day of the so-called rest week before I tackle L4. Decided to do a greatly abbreviated version of the 'filthy fifty'. Mine sucked too. Here it is: 25 box jumps (in my case, the 2nd step up from the basement, about 16") 25 burpees 25 situps, feet hooked under the couch, over the swiss ball. 25 ...

Darrel, that's awesome! You should brag that up a little.. after all, that's 360 reps in less then 20 minutes or 18 reps per minute! You're a machine!

Strong goals, Keith.

I really identify with hiking the continental divide trail. That would be cool.

9/21/07 workout

wk. 5, L3D3, test day: (drumroll, maestro) 4:45!! Moving up to L4, but not before 1, maybe even 2, rest weeks. My forearms and elbows are dampening the pleasure I find in finally vanquishing L3. Next week I plan to walk, do some light interval training and do core work. Keith, to answer your questio...
