My CrossFit Journal Year 2 Week 19

Ahem. It’s been a few weeks, since I’ve done a weekly recap of my workouts at CrossFit. I’m getting back into it today.

Wish I had some photos to keep it more visually interesting for you guys. Perhaps next week I’ll google some instructional images for you to all understand what we’re doing at CrossFit. Is that something you’d like to see? Let me know in the comments!

year 2, week 19, day 1

Strict Pullups

Ring Dips
KB Swings
Box Jumps

For the strict pullups I used a black band. For the last set I used a red one. Gettin’ stronger with strict!

For the WOD I used 16kg for the KB swings. Rx was 24kg for women I think. Nuts. My time for completing it was 10:07


year 2, week 19, day 2

10-1 Deadlifts 1.5x bodyweight
1-10 Tru Pushups (on the rings)
*200m run between rounds

I used 105lbs for the deadlifts, and completed the rounds. I was on the few tru pushups when the timer went off. I would’ve had to finish off with a run. I think we had 21 minutes to complete this.

I felt so strong at CrossFit last week. Paleo is definitely helping me get stronger. I was going up in (lifting) weight like nobodies business!

EMOM 10 (Every minute on the minute for 10 mins)
1 power clean + 1 squat clean to thruster

What I used: For the first few rounds I did 70lbs, then I ended up putting on 2.5lb plates on making it 75lbs for the last few! Thrusters were the hardest. But I love power clean and thrusters/push-presses, so it was a pretty good WOD.

400m run
25 pushups

What I completed: I did 3 full rounds, did another 400m run and 13 pushups. So close to finishing the 4th round.

10 minutes / 5 rounds
1 deadlift
