My CrossFit Journal (week 8)


Week 8 Day 1.

AMRAP 20 (= As many rounds as possible in 20 minutes)
5 Push Press (155/110)
5 Burpees
200m Run

(Clearly in the mood to search google for CrossFit cartoon images)

I definitely cannot do a push press of 110lbs over my head. Apparently what was set up for us last Saturday was 65lbs. Either I was weak on this (‘today’) or I was psyching myself out. I had to drop down to 55lbs which I could pump out 2 or 3 and had to rest to get another few out to get to the 5 push press. Burpees were good. Hands always get dirty from the floor, and I often do burpees on my knees. 200 meter run went better than I thought it would. I had my breathing completely controlled and kept good pace.

I ended up doing SEVEN flipping rounds!!!!!


Week 8 Day 2.

Dead Lift

I ended up starting my workout with a total of 65lbs and slowly went up to 95lbs. I ended up going over to my friend who introduced me to CrossFit and watched her do her deadlifts. Do 3, and rest for 2 minutes. She had a bunch of really heavy weight on there. I tried to do one deadlift, and then I tried to do 3. I abandoned my weights and just ended up sharing a bar with her. We were doing 135lb deadlifts you guys!!! How insane is that? Just a few weeks ago I felt that 75lbs was difficult!!!!!!


Week 8 Day 3.

60 Bar-facing burpees
30 O/H Squat; 125/95lb (I did 25lbs total lol)
30 pull ups
30 supines

We had 15 minutes to do AMRAP (As Many Rounds As Possible) which was really to try and complete just the one round. I remember looking at the clock and it said 7:20 into the workout and I was still doing those bleeping burpees. It was slower because we had to jump over the bar. Surprisingly how slow it makes you. The squats were difficult too. My shoulders need more strength training.

As the timer beeped, I was on my supines and I cranked out just 5. Still pretty good!

I really need to start posting the warm up’s as well. We ended up doing goodness only knows how many burpees, then burpees again with 3 pushups, then burpees with 5 pushups. Plus some more stuff I don’t really remember since it’s never posted online about the warmups. Sweat fest. The bar facing burpees was just jumping over a long bar with weights on it, then do a burpee on each side.. I think I explained it well. Right? Toughie today.
