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.
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.
Front Squat 3X5 Superset with Max Effort Strict Pull ups
|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.

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.
