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
bitchesbackwards, 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
- 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.
CrossFit Day 34 – I’m going to name this WOD “Pure Torture”
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 crappyform 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.
- 10 Overhead plate (10#) lunges
- 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.
