WOD 14th June


I think today was one of the most physically intense days that I had for a while. Having in mind my bike ride to work that is 17km mostly uphill, I decided to take a Crossfit class after work today. To get to the gym googlemaps were showing 20km and it was definitely an interesting ride and I am glad that I wrote down the streets before leaving, because my iPod map of course decided to drop pin somewhere by itself and erase my route πŸ™‚ it took me 50mins. to get to the gym and I arrived 15mins. before class started. Obviously, I decided to skip warm-up which included running, as I think 50mins. of intense riding is more that enough for the body to warm up.

Todays training consisted of 2 AMRAP of 15mins:Β 

WOD1:

  • 20 box jumps (decided to go with guys and took 29″ height)
  • 20 wall balls (again, following guys with black ball of 20 lb)
  • 20 burpees
  • 400m rowing (on the hardest scale)
Result: 2+25 rounds.

I told myself that I will start going on heavier equipment from next week, but as there was an opportunity, I decided to try out the 20lb wall ball, having in mind how easily I was doing 16 lb previous trainings. It is definitely harder, but much more rewarding. Regarding box jumps, I have already done 29″ box so it wasn’t that hard and rowing is not a big deal for me.

WOD2:

  • 5 Floor press (95lb)
  • 10 handstand push ups (did pike press)
  • 15 release push ups
  • 10 roll abs
Result: 3+31 rounds

Actually I tried to make 115lb floor press, but as I have done floor press only once before, I think I overestimated myself, because I was not able to lift it πŸ™‚ So, ended up changing weight to 95lb that was quite doable πŸ™‚ As for handstand pushups I still need to practise them and I did not feel that I would be able to make them after floor press and even if I would make them first round there was no way I could see myself making them second round. Anyways, my plan is to try to make them tomorrow after training and see how it will go.

After training I still had to get back home and go steep uphill, I have to say that my legs were a bit shaky, but all went fine and it was soooo good to take a long warm shower to release the muscle tension. I wonder what will be tomorrow’s training πŸ™‚
