Tire Flip and Other Fun Things

The last few days of CrossFit have been especially great. Well, all except for last Wednesday when I really stunk at it. My body absolutely refused to do what I wanted it to so I had to modify things a bit. By Thursday I was feeling better and got back into the swing of things.

Saturday, 31 October: Happy Halloween

WOD:

1 Mile Run

10,9,8,7...1

Burpees, Pull-Ups, Box Jumps, Push-Ups

1 Mile Run

I really enjoyed this WOD. It was tough without being completely exhausting. I used Ol' Blue for the Pull-Ups because my arms were fried. I also modified my Push-Ups fro the same reason. I finished in 36:15.

Friday, 30 October:

WOD: Partner Workout

2 Rounds, 5 Minutes Each Station

Tire Flip/Carry
200m Body Bag Carry
5 KB Pulls/Ball Slams
KB Snatch/Berry Pickers

Again, I liked this WOD. The variety of movements kept you fresh. This was the first time I have ever done the tire flip and I managed to not only flip to but carry it with my partner back to the starting line. It was good.

Thursday, 29 October

WOD:

Pull-Up Ladder
1-2-3-4-5-4-3-2-1
1-2-3-4-3-2-1

Barbell Press
3-3-3-1-1-1
10 RDL between sets

3 Rounds:
30 KB Swings
30 Burpees
30 Sit-Ups

I did not care for this one. First off, I hate one-armed barbell anythings. I managed to make it up to 40lbs by the end, but it was tough, especially for my left arm. We used 115lbs for the RDL. My hamstrings definitely felt it the next day. I used 30lbs for the KB swings. Oh yeah, I did the Pull-Up ladders using kipping.

Wednesday, 28 October

I would rather not talk about my pathetic attempt at the WOD. Let's just say that if I would have tossed my cookies, I would have been much better. Ick.
