This bring a friend day was a chipper WOD, and also a partner WOD. This was an interesting one, because my partner was newer to crossfit and didn’t know (or wasn’t comfortable doing) a lot of the movements. I’ve debated for awhile on how to post this, because I in no way had any sort…Details
And the in between days. This doesn’t have to do with crossfit, or maybe it does. I don’t know. I have my ups and downs, and I have my in betweens. Where I know everything is good, but my feelings don’t match this. We’ve got it good, we’re lucky, fortunate, happy, content, blah blah blah.…Details
So nothing feels quite as amazing as RXing a WOD that you wouldn’t have previously been able to do. I was beaming! I was so proud of myself. WOD was: 9 Minute AMRAP 7 – Thrusters (75/65)7 – Pull Ups7 – Burpees I completed 3 + 10 rounds/reps. RXed all the way. We had also…Details
3RM Hang Power Snatch. I went for 115 and it just didn’t happen. You don’t realize how much you utilize that power position from the floor until you’re not supposed to. I threw in the towel at 95. Snatches are hard for me, I suck at them. My fault for not trying to relearn the…Details
2 Person Buddy WOD5 min each station 1. ME Wall Balls (one person has the wall ball, but both partners squat. You just pass it back and forth every time you throw the ball)2. ME Sled Drag (50m = 1 rep) at 95lbs3. ME OH Lunges (25lb plate)4. ME Box Jump Overs (20″)5. ME Clean…Details
This was a great WOD!
60 – Box Jumps (24/20)
60 – KBS (55/35)
60 – Ring Push Ups
60 – Strict Press (45/35)
Finished in 16:54, and did regular push ups (ring push ups destroy/hurt/entirely mess up my left shoulder). I wasn’t willing to injure myself beyond repair, so, I did regular push ups.
It doesn’t seem like a huge feat, and I’ve been able to do Toes to Bar for quite some time now, but… today I did 5 back to back to back to back to back! Just like, non stop! WHAAAAT. I used to do one at a time. T2B, down, turn around, another T2B, down,…Details
My feet/foot are still recovering from sled sprints, and actually, believe it or not but freakin stretching is what helps it the most. BUT in an effort to not exacerbate my almost recovered injury, I did a 2 mile row instead of a 1 mile run, and 60 GHD Sit Ups instead of 100 abmat…Details
Find your 1RM Snatch
Find your 1RM C&J
I pulled a snatch at 115. Failed 135. My 1RM is 130.
Did 175 for Clean and Jerk, which is my current PR. 🙂
Soooooooo yes it was a strength competition, but it was still my first RX competition! Dezi and I partnered up for this one. We headed down EARLY Sunday morning to Altamonte Springs, to CrossFit Tire Factory, for the festivities! A good time was had by all! Lauren Brooks was hosting the event, so that was…Details
