Day 2 of Crossfit


The 2nd Day of Crossfit
Waking up at 540 am with Mike, really isn't that bad. I think it is because I know I have to be the motivator for both of us, so I am the motivator, if that makes sense. We got to class with 5 minutes to spare. Perfect. Just enough time to see how torturous the workout was for the 5 am class. They seemed much sweatier than they were the week before.  Luckily I knew what the workout was and felt fairly okay with it. 

Warm Up:
We started off with a quick run around the building, some high knees, butt kicks, jumping jacks, and push ups. I was super excited that I busted out 10 in one round. I can't say they were perfect push ups, but I went down a bit and up, so it's better than last time.

Strength:
Front Squat 3X5 Superset with Max Effort Strict Pull ups



Front Squat


Modified Pull Up with Elastic Band


I partnered up with someone who was really awesome. She was fairly new to crossfit and was super sweet. I started out with the front squat, and was doing it wrong. Luckily I was corrected immediately and told to only use the bar. The pull ups went pretty well with an elastic band. I think I busted out 6 in a row on my first round. I never ended up finishing the strength session because time ran out. Oops.

Thrusters

For this workout I was told to just use the 35lb bar. I think overall I could have done it with more, but my form may have been lacking. I have no qualms with not having to use more weight just yet. I really want to make sure I don't injure myself once I use heavier weights. I ended up being one of the first to finish, and I attribute that to just using the 35lb bar. A lot of people had to take breaks in between sets and I didn't really have to.

"Cool Down"
For our cool down we did sprints. We do a short sprint, rest for 5 seconds and sprint again. At first I started out great. Then as the sprints went on, I was losing momentum. It was definitely a tough workout, and the sprints were brutal, but that is why I love it. Yay.

  1. It is great that there are other women promoting weightlifting sport among women. Most of women think that weighlifting is for men, and women have nothing to do with it. But it si not so, since weightlifting greatly help you to buld nice body and burn fat.
