12 Days of Crossfit – 2015

11 consecutive days and 12 workouts later, this year’s 12 Days of Crossfit is now done and dusted for me. It was hectic, it was fun, it was challenging, it was awesome.

I did over 300 pull ups, 80 thrusters and 200 push ups, I deadlifted 60kg 45 times and 85kg 45 times, I ran, I rowed, I jumped, I swung kettlebells.

My hands are stiff and sore, but not bleeding :), my only other injury is a bruise smack in the middle of my forehead for whacking myself with the barbell as I was getting it overhead for overhead squats.

I Rx’d* 7 workouts ouf of 12 and the scaling I did was doing push presses instead of handstand push ups or pull ups instead of muscle ups, I didn’t have to scale the weights this year.

In case you’re wondering what goes down at Crossfit after a warm-up and mobility & skills work, here are the workouts from the past 11 days:

*Rx’ing Crossfit workouts means doing them as prescribed – without changing movements and without changing weights.Β  I have no problem with scaling workouts when I cannot do something (or do it safely) but it’s exciting to finally not have to scale all the time.
