CrossFit Day 33 & 34

Great week at CrossFit!  It amazes me that even though I keep going, there are still new things to learn.  Exciting workouts to try.  And it always amazes me that I can walk away from a “workout” after 22 minutes of going hard and feel sore for days.  22 minutes.  Some workouts are even shorter!   Super cool in my opinion.

CrossFit Day 33

  • 15 Wall Climbs – Whoever created these bitches backwards, inverted wall climbs was one sick puppy.  I mean really, who just stares a wall and thinks this stuff up?  And yeah, you feel all cool and strong until about the 3rd one then it’s like, please shoot me so that I don’t have to do anymore!!!!

Tabatas – 20 seconds “on” for the movement, 10 seconds rest = 1 set.  Repeat x8, then rotate to the next station.

  • Box Jumps – 18” box
  • Push-Ups
  • Kettlebell Swings – 35#
  • Wall balls – 10#
  • Ab Baskets – 10# ball – By the time I got here, it was hard to even hold the ball up on my legs.  Or maybe it was hard to hold my legs up to balance the ball?  I don’t even know, I was totally dazed & confused from exhaustion.  Smile

 

CrossFit Day 34 – I’m going to name this WOD “Pure Torture”

7 Rounds

  • 10 Burpees WITH a plate jump – Cuz burpees just aren’t hard enough but now we have to try to jump on a plate after each one without breaking an ankle or collapsing.  #WTF  Try not to focus too much on my crappy form but here are a few photos below.  First a nice demo from the chick in red.  Except we didn’t jump “up” but forward onto a 45# plate.  Fun.burpee-1

  • 10 Overhead plate (10#) lunges

Lunges w 10lb plate

  • 10 Situps
  • 10 Box Jumps (18” box)
  • 1 minute rest, then repeat x7

That took 22 minutes and although it was 40 degrees out, I had to ask for the fan to be turned on so that I didn’t pass out

  1. Those wall climbs are insane – I tried them for part of my at home workout one day – crazy.
    And now I can’t wait to try the burpees with the plate jump – love adding in new burpee moves!!
