My CrossFit Journal (week 39)


Week 39 Day 1.

Floor Press (8×2)

This one was difficult for me. My upper body still feels a ton more weak than my lower body. I did end up making it to 65lbs though.

The warmup was crazaay…

(Hey it’s me!)

30 box jumps (I used 20″)
20 more box jumps starting from the top and bouncing off the floor quickly (I ended up going down to 16″)

Then the second part of the warmup was an AMRAP (as many rounds as possible) in 12 minutes:

  • 3 burpees
  • 6 standing rows HP (35lbs) — the photo shown in this one is wrong, sorry. You just stand up straight, and bring your hands to your chest, with the weight. Make sense? Working your outer shoulders.
  • 9 overhead situps with a kettle bell (I used 12kg for the first round, then dropped to 8kg)
  • 12 double unders // or 36 regular skips.

I was DYING at 3 minutes in. I don’t know how many rounds I ended up doing but it was more than 3 or 4.


Week 39 Day 2.


Deadlift; 185/155lbs
Burpee Box Jumps; 20/16″

*30 seconds L-Sit

Notice for the burpee box jumps: Jump on top of the box. Jump off the box and do a pushup. Jump back on the box, etc. Everytime there is a “star” you do the 30 second L sit. It goes something like this: 15 deadlifts, 15 burpee box jumps, 30 second hold. 12 deadlifts, 12 burpees, 30 second hold.

I don’t think I’ve ever had my hair soaked after a workout before. It was insane! I completed my WOD in 18:20. Note, I cannot L-Sit with my legs extended, I’m there in the fetal position with my feet under my butt, lol. Extended is way hard! For the deadlifts I did 115lbs! Isn’t that insane? That used to be my “max” lifting capabilities. Now I can probably lift up a truck and do an rv repair. Well, obviously that’s an exaggeration.
