the competition was really a fundraiser for a sick baby and sooo much fun. my soon-to-be-official crossfit coach had shirts made for us and it was cool to be part of a team again (even though crossfit isn't a team sport).
fight gone bad is one of crossfit's benchmark workouts. it's 17 minutes of work, and it's hard.
3 rounds of 1-min each:
- wall balls
- box jumps
- push press (45lbs women/75lbs men)
- sumo deadlift high pulls (55lbs women/75lbs men)
still don't follow? luckily i have prepared some visual aides:
|wall ball: squat, stand up, hurl medball 10 feet in the air|
|box jumps: self explanatory. try to be graceful.|
|push press: push bar overhead and try not to drop on yourself.|
|sumo deadlift high pull: don't throw your back out.|
|rower: it's completely degrading how slow the calories tick.|
|how you might feel after round 1|
|after round 2|
fellow upstate bloggers - my gym officially becomes crossfit-affiliated in october and i would love to have you come as a guest to a workout!
*while i am totally loving my crossfit workouts, running is still my true love. i definitely think the cf'ing has helped with my running (yes, i am running i just never have time to blog about it). the day after fight gone bad (sunday) i went out for a run and didn't come back for 8 miles! i can't complain about the beastly chin ups i can do now either.
