Time for another Fitness Friday. Let’s recap, shall we?
This workout killed me. I deadlifted 135# which is a 20# PR but it was HARD. And I was tired. Plus wall walks and I don’t get a long. Like for real. They kill me. And this time they killed my hip flexor. If you don’t know what a wall walk is, you lay on the ground on your stomach with your feet touching the wall. Then you literally walk your feet up the wall, and then walk your hands in towards the wall. They’re impossibly hard. Ugh. My time was 9:33.
Saturday morning, 8am. Open gym! I worked on back squats and handstands. I squatted 135#!
And I made hubby take a picture of my handstand! Next step is working on getting the arch out of my back. I’m working on getting my hands closer to the wall but it’s hard for me!
Saturday, 9am: WOD time. It was about 60 degrees here last Saturday so we took advantage and did a benchmark workout. Meet Helen. She sucks. I did my kb swings with a 35# kb and did jumping pullups. Time- 10:30.
Since it was so nice out, we also took the boys for a walk. Now it’s cold again. Booooo.
AMRAP- As Much Rest As Possible.
We took it seriously. We didn’t even leave the house.
I had to modify the handstand pushups and did jumping pullings but did the squats Rx. Time 6:16
Long day…I interned, and had class, but I still made a workout happen. I raced to crossfit after I got out of class. I missed the skill/strength part, but I knew I wouldn’t be able to go on Wednesday so I wanted to get a workout in.
I struggled with this one because it hurt my wrists. I can overhead squat 70 pounds…but not without REALLY feeling it in my wrists. For the workout I opted for 50# and finished in 6:23. The good news is that I ordered some wrist wraps and they came in the mail on Wednesday. Can’t wait to start using them!
Forced rest day. I had an evening program for school that I had to go to, which made for a 14 hour day.
Seemed like a good day for a rest day.
This workout was tougher than it sounded. Probably because we did a pretty intense workout and then a fast- strength session where we determined our one rep max for power cleans. Mine was 100 pounds. Pretty impressed with myself! For the wod i did banded ring dips (but i used the skinniest band!) and finished in 6:28.
That’s all, friends! I’m happy it’s friday. Friday means Friday night fun at crossfit and then a date with hubby to make dinner and watch Dateline. Yes, this is what our friday nights have turned into and i love it!
Let’s Chat: How were your workouts this week? Any plans for the weekend?
