CrossFit was so good last week I am just now starting to walk normally again. On Tuesday we did back squats and I got up to 50kg for the last 3 reps. Then we did 5 rounds of pistols (with a box behind us so we wouldn’t fall over 🙂 and hip hinges with 25kg on the barbell on the shoulders. It was 30 seconds of pistols, 30 seconds off, 30 seconds hip hinges, 30 seconds off, etc. When I read the workout on the blog earlier that morning it didn’t seem that difficult but now I know better – pistols are squats on one leg at a time = totally impossible to do right EVEN with the box under the bum, and the squats and the hip hinges with weight meant that my legs were sore as anything the next day.
On Thursday we did sumo deadlifts. I got up to 60kg for the last 3 reps. Watch out Beyonce, this booty’s going to be nicer than yours one day! 🙂
The workout was 4 rounds of:
5 Hang power clean
5 Shoulder to overhead
5 Lunges per side, with barbell
– Rest 1min
I did the first round with 30kg but after the 4th lunge fell over 😐 I quickly took 5kg off the barbell and completed the workout with 25kg. It is ridiculous how hard it is to do lunges with a weight.
Other than that we did of course the usual ‘warm-up’ of running, pull ups, push ups, kettlebell lunges, etc. I can’t wait to see what next week has in store 😀
