My CrossFit Journal (week 13)

You’ll notice in the CrossFit archives that there wasn’t a week 12. That’s because I didn’t go the entire week. Ooops. I definitely didn’t make up for it this week either, going only twice. I blame it on driving to the airport one evening, then cleaning up our apartment for the next two nights because of a small disaster.. Meh! Next week will be better. I promise myself. :) Maybe I’ll get some trophies and awards for going a ton next week.

Week 13 Day 1.

Death by Thruster Rx 115/75lbs (I used 50 lbs)

 

1 Thruster on Minute 1
2 Thrusters on Minute 2
3 Thursters on Minute 3
4 Thrusters on Minute 4
5 Thrusters on Minute 5
6 Thrusters on Minute 6
7 Thrusters on Minute 7  

… Continue until failure within minute
What the Thrusters look like:

The whole class only ended up finishing 8 rounds. I finished my 8 thrusters I think 5 seconds before minute 9 hit and then I pushed out 3 thrusters, tried to do another 3 and my wrists just killed. They were floppy, and painful.

Week 13 Day 2.

Front Squat (I used 45 lbs)
5-5-5-5-5

What the front squats look like (skip to 30 seconds in):

The front squats are difficult for me, as I can’t get very low yet. While we were taking breaks from the 5 reps at a time for the Front Squats we practiced things we wanted to work on. The coach/trainer (what do I even refer to them as?) told me to do strict pull ups with a black band (second last elastic until I use none!!) and then practice kips WITHOUT AN ELASTIC. Crazy.
