Alright.. seeking advice from my Crossfitter friends! What do you all suggest for leaning out/losing fat while still maintaining your strength? I’ve just about had it with myself. Some info: I eat pretty well, mostly paleo. I am gluten free. I eat some fruit, some sweet potato, a little dairy/cheese (cream or kerrygold in coffee),…Details
Lately after finishing certain benchmark and Hero WODs, I’ve found myself saying, “next year I’ll RX this one..” Which turned into me wanting to make a list of goals to work towards and then put it out here, so I can attempt to hold myself accountable. Next Year I will RX the following WODs: Murph…Details
So let’s talk about how July is almost over. Like this week and we’re done. Time just flies by now, and I think it’s because we’re old, but I don’t feel any different! Unless I worked out for the first time in a week and then go and sit still for an hour, and then…Details
I hadn’t done Hero Holleyman since last year, and the last time I did it, I finished in 34:54. I did all the same weights, movements as last year, but THIS year.. I finished in 25:26. Over 9 minutes faster than last year, which was an incredibly awesome feeling! Holleyman is: 30 RFT5 wall balls…Details
I tweaked my lower back and the pain is coming from to the left of my spine, right above my tailbone. It’s not muscular, it’s more like nerve-ish pain. Just got back from the chiropractor who confirmed my suspicions. He said it was my L5 S1. Took some x-rays, gave me some good stretches, did…Details
I went in Sunday to work on my back squats. I NEEDED a PR! My last PR was 255, and this time I tried 275 (twice) and didn’t get low enough. I dropped the weight to 265 and nailed it. YEAH. Good enough for the board, good enough for me!
Next time we’ll get 275.
Friday was Grace. And if you’ve been following my blog, you’ll know that I just hit a Grace PR recently. And I was super excited about THAT! Well, here we are again.. Grace. 30 Clean and Jerks for time at 95lbs. I was nervous about just going 5 seconds faster, in all honesty! I really…Details
First time working out back at home! Woooo.
13 Minute AMRAP
5 – T-2000′s
10 – Plyo Pushups (45′s/25′s)
T-2000s suck. It’s a Chest to Bar pull up, followed by a Toes to Bar unbroken. They suck. I don’t ever want to do them again. 🙂
My last workout in Madison happened at 6a on Monday. It just seemed to be the only time that consistently worked for me when I was there, because I never knew what our days would have in store! We went to go see The House on the Rock later that day, and I can guarantee…Details
Still out of town, but that’s okay! I hit up Connex again for another great WOD. Em agreed to come workout with me if I showed up for the 6a class. OMG.. that meant waking up around 4:45a. Okay. Workout was great! I apparently impressed people with my weight skills. People at my gym are…Details
