Fitness Fridays!

Two weeks in a row I have made it to CrossFit on Friday.  Woot woot!  Last night I got home to no internet and no TV.  I actually read a book.  *gasp*  I ended up in bed early, so getting up wasn't too big of a deal.

When we got there this morning, we ran our typical 400m and just did a couple warm up exercises.  Then we had mobility work, stretching shoulders, foam rolling, etc.  At about 20 after, the trainer corralled us for "the rest of our warm up."  Heh.

2 rounds:
10 wall balls
10 sit ups
10 push ups
10 pull ups
10 kettlebell swings

I still crack up at what is considered a "warm up".  Anyway, our WOD was:

5 rounds:
12 Deadlifts
9 Hang Power Cleans
6 Push Jerks

12:00 cutoff.  I made it using 65# in 8:35. For 8 minutes and 35 seconds, I used every muscle I had, my heart was pounding out of my chest and I fought to find a breath.  It was awesome.  :-)

Quick demos:

Hang Power Cleans:
Push Jerks:

I'm feeling very strong today!!  65 pounds starts feeling really daggone heavy after some of this.  Ha!
Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!
