So, sometimes on Bring a Friend Days, I like to work on my own and not have to either burden or hold a partner back, or, basically, double challenge myself to work harder and independently. Guess it goes back to technically being an only child.. Doesn’t always play well with others. Selfish. A loner. Prefers…Details
I took some time off because I went up north to see my Mommy again! It was awesome and we had a great time, and my time with her is never enough! I also started my Flexible Dieting with WAG where you literally count and weigh every single thing you eat, and calculate your macros…Details
Never Miss a Monday, even if you have to sub everything out.
The WOD was 8 min AMRAP
10 broad jumps (air squats)
12 split jumps (12 GHD sit ups)
25 DUs (singles)
I completed 6 + 22 rounds.
I have no record of this WOD, except for this photo. There was rowing, KBs, and burpees. According to my Facebook… I did burpees today for the first time in over 8 weeks since fracturing my foot. I’ve never been so excited to do burpees and they actually felt amazing. I love that I’m healing,…Details
In honor of our heroes, we did a Tribute WOD called Three Wise Men, and you can find out more information about it here: The WOD was actually 3 separate WODs. “Jeremy” Complete as many rounds and reps as possible in 4 minutes of: 5 Hang Squat Snatch (Elite = 185/125 lbs, RX = 135/95…Details
So I signed up for a nice little competition that I found out about by chance. It was called the 2015 CrossFit Liftoff, Sponsored by Rogue (nice title, guys, pack it all in there..) It was a strength-based competition and set up on an international format, sort of like The Open, but it all took…Details
Lots of snatches, a few cleans. I love power cleans! We had the WOD and then we had to find our 1RM Clean right after, in 4 minutes. So here was the WOD: 7 min AMRAP 75 DU (singles for me) 7 Power Snatch 75/35 7 Burpees over Bar (I did push ups instead, because…Details
Never miss a Monday, unless it’s a horrible WOD, then make sure you have a good excuse. No but really, I always try to make it to the gym on Mondays, at least to do something good for myself. This particular Monday was Max Wall Balls, and every time you break, you have to do…Details
Max effort Z press, in 10 minutes. This is what stood out to me for this day. I really wasn’t concerned about the WOD, but this was something I could tackle! Z Press – Z press test = Sit on the floor legs extended with upright posture. Maintain an upright posture. Don’t slouch. Attempt to…Details
So my arms had just recovered from my 100 pull ups madness the previous week, and I had my follow up foot appointment the following day. I decided to take it easy at the gym, and forego the scheduled WOD and do some light rowing instead. The problem is, I got through my initially planned…Details
