Since I’m already piling on the certs, I figured the USAW one would be a good one to add to my collection! Our very own Oly Coach, Jesse Reynolds, was hosting one at Crossfit Total Control this past weekend, which was AWESOME. Meant I didn’t have to go anywhere new, or outside of my comfort zone! And I’d be around people I knew! Very happy.
We spent both Saturday and Sunday going over Cleans, Jerks and Snatches. Over and over and over and over and over. Drills. Power Position, Above the Knee, Below the Knee, from the ground. Split Jerks, Power Jerks. Even though we only used the 45lb bars for the most part, (sometimes with a little weight) I was EXHAUSTED by the end of each day. Definitely not what I expected! I wasn’t sore, like workout-sore, but I was drained, fatigued, achy, it was weird. It was more like I had been moving furniture all day or something.
Anyway, it was totally worth it! Leah and I both took and passed our exams before the rest of the group, and the rest was history. 🙂

And.. I love this picture! This is from Saturday, when there was the big Saturday WOD at our Crossfit box. A few of the USAW guys had never seen or been a part of Crossfit before, and they were all watching with amazement as everyone did this crazy Century Holiday WOD.
