Kicked some WoD ass tonight!! Damn have I felt great in my 1st 2 WoDs back from break! In typical Brad fashion, the warm up was indeed actually a mini-WoD! I used a 30# slam ball, and did 21 plate presses at 45#, 15 at 35#, and 9 at 25#. Literally kept thinking, “Damn, this isn’t even the workout!!”
I’m loving the way our trainers (Brad today) are writing WoDs that really focus on multi-faceted concepts. We have EMOMS, Rounds for time, and multiple exercises in every WoD. Sincerely, I feel our trainers get the concept of muscle confusion and push it to the limit!
For the WoD (you know, after the warmup, ah… WoD)…
I stuck with 75# for the snatches and SDHPs. I was actually ready to increase weight when Jackie said that Brad wanted this done unbroken. So touching the floor was ok, but no pausing during reps. Smart decision b/c rounds 8-10 had me struggling.
We had 2 minutes after the 10 minute EMOM to adjust weight for deadlifts and then essentially an AMRAP of 10 DLs and 30 HRPUs, capped at 13 minutes. Only a couple boxmates finished. I completed 12 of the final 30 HRPUs before collapsing in a heap on the floor. Did 225# DLs, 50 in total. Pretty happy with that.
In other news we are moving our practice. Long overdue actually, as we have needed to expand for some time now. We just haven’t been able to find the right location in the right region. Well, everything fell into our lap within 4 days. It is slightly frustrating, because we were about to embark upon a side project at our CrossFit box, which we will not be able to simultaneously do with this huge move. As well as the fact that we are literally tripling our rent. That said, without risk of losing our current clientele, plus the added bonus of a much better location we are confident this is a move we need to make. We do well, but man would it be nice to stick to our standards and do incredibly! Wish us luck in this venture, please!
Ok, so that Rainbow Dash pic… Yeah, it’s on my right ass cheek!! I sincerely don’t know how to properly emphasize nor explain how this came to be. Both in personal face to face experience, and online Facebook and Tumblr experience, I can honestly say that foodhealthlife and I are different! We are middle-aged, and that may have something to do with our attitude of “I don’t give a fuck!” Anyway it began as a joke which Judy then hounded me on for for 6 months now. So I got the Damned tattoo, and she loves it! Only at day two in, & I can already tell you that I would never take it back! I just sincerely hope I never get sent to jail!
I had an omelette.
