This week at CrossFit was about the same as last week. Hard. But as someone mentioned yesterday, if it were easy then I wouldn’t actually be working at it so I’m just going to keep trying!
Day 56 – Push Press 5×5 (73#) – super tough this go round. Usually I can knock these out but this time my arms were struggling a bit.
21-15-9 Typical CF step-down type WOD. 21 of each move the first round, 15 the next, finishing with 9 of each. Between each round (or set), add in 100 single jump ropes (or 50 double unders). This was a tough one. The Burpees and the Pull-Ups are nemeses of mine. I actually laid on the floor after this one for a few seconds. Tough.
- Kettlebell Swings (26#)
- Pull-Ups – Assisted with a two bands
and it was still hard
- 100 single jump ropes between each of the 3 sets.
Day 57 – Tabatas (20 seconds on, 10 seconds off, 8 rounds before moving to the next thing)
- Ball Slams – 20#
- Push-Ups – Yes, I still have spaghetti arms and could barely get 5 push-ups in the 20 seconds.
- Abmat Sit-Ups
- Ring Rows
THEN we got to practice double unders (rope jumping but rotating the rope 2x before your feet hit the ground). I think it went well. I couldn’t string multiples together but I could jump a few singles, then do a double under, then a few more singles, then add in another double under. I managed to put 3-4 into one segment (a couple times) before getting caught up in the rope. I will note that it takes A LOT more energy to do a double under verses just single jumps.
Good week. I’m happy that I keep going even when
I don’t want to get up I feel fatigued.

Awesome and sounds as hard as you describe and then harder! I can barely jump single rope…and could never do that “double” thing…and so I never had visions of being a boxer! LOL! Keep it up…you are already stronger!
