Tuesday, July 6 – CrossFit

Back from a nice weekend in Milwaukee. Victoria came over to meet us as well so it was lots of fun.

Now, back to working out.

Happiness is an inside job.

Notes Pull-ups can be modified to a jumping pull-up or a banded pull-up variation.
Transition (~3:00) Finalize options and set-up. Take care of any final workout prep.

  WORKOUT (~20:00)

For time 5 Rounds
2 Rounds of Cindy
1 Round of DT

*1 Round of Cindy =
5 Pull-ups jumping from box
10 Push-ups
15 Air squats

*1 Round of DT = 55#
12 Deadlifts (155lbs/105lbs)
9 Hang power cleans
6 Push jerks

Notes This workout will challenge endurance and stamina through the entire body.
The rounds of “Cindy” are intended to be completed unbroken with one short rest break.
The load on “DT” is moderate where the reps of each movement may be completed unbroken with 1-2 short rest breaks.
Faster times for this workout could be under ~12:00 while all can strive to perform a variation that allows for completion in under ~20:00.
Pull-ups *Jumping pull-up. *Ring row. Push-up *Elevated push-up. *Reduce the reps. Air Squats *Reduce the reps if the overall volume will lead to excessive soreness for the days to come.
DT *Use a load that allows for the first round of each movement to be completed unbroken or with one planned rest break. *9-6-3 as needed.

In the 20:00 I did 3 complete rounds and I made it through the Cindy on the 4th round. I felt extremely slow but it was so humid and I was just dripping sweat and have difficulty breathing. It was MUCH better when Alicia moved the fan so it was shooting right on me – made those pull-ups, push-ups and air squats a bit easier to do. I can’t believe how much the humid, hot weather affects what I can actually do. Makes me frustrated because I feel like I’m going backwards. Oh well, I’ll get it someday.
