It was a CrossFit morning:
- 2x5 + 1 max rep, back squats
- 2x5 + 1 max rep, press
- Double Unders & Sit ups
In the press, I tried to lift 75#, but I just couldn't get it done so I stuck with 65#. I maxed out at 8. I think these are so hard because you can't use your legs to get any momentum.
This video is a GREAT illustration of the difference between a press, a push press and a push jerk. The press is the hardest because it all has to come from upper body strength.
At the end, we were supposed to do 25-20-15-10-5 Double Unders & Sit ups. But since my body acted like it never saw a jump rope this morning, I did 10 DUs, 25 Situps, 10 DUs, & 20 Situps. The cut off was 5:00, so that's all I got in. Stupid double unders. Good day though!
The CrossFit games start this week. The first workout is 7:00 of burpees. Heh. Crazy people. There are even form rules where you have to jump up and touch something 6" beyond your standing reach for it to count. I'm not even sure I could do one. :) I know a few people participating, so it will be cool to see how they do. Right now everyone does the WODs locally and submits information and video. Then the best will participate in regional competitions. I need to find out when and where because I would love to go to one.
I will leave you with a pic. I got another new dress from Mod Cloth yesterday and I just HAD to wear it today. I have to wear it with the jacket to work, but I almost wish I had a date or something after work. :)
