Are you good at double unders?
I am not, so I am glad that last week I decided to tackle that problem and
at least learned how to make single jump, double unders, single, double-unders. I am still not able just to
do double unders without having single jump in between. However, last week, I was happy when I managed to make 20 jumps without stopping. Guess what was the WOD of today? a million double unders….literally…I could choose to make single jumps, but decided to slay this dragon and better not to be the fastest but go with double unders…So, todays WOD:
Time cap 40mins:
- 500 double unders
- 1500m row (on 10th difficulty)
- 150m over hear walking lunges (30lbs)
I did manage to fit into the time cap and made it in 37:37min. walking lunges were super hard after all these jumps and it was raining as crazy and we had to do it outside. Not to mention that I was already soaking wet when I arrived to the gym and obviously did even have a change of socks with me. But, as I always say: “C’est la vie”. I had to make back home anyway in the same pouring rain, so what difference does it make. It is still raining now 🙂
For a finisher we had:
AMRAP 6 mins.
- 20 push-ups
- 40 DB row – 30 lbs
Result: 3 rounds. Finished just before time finished. Now I am limiting my rest intervals and try to go either unbroken for or rest 5 secs. After making a round, I took like 10-15secs. break. It really makes all the difference. I felt much more energized towards the end than at the beginning. I planned to make other WOD, but the Crossfit room was occupied, so I decided to save my energy for tomorrow training, as I am leaving tomorrow to visit my parents in law, so now I am kind of imitating Crossfit games with my training intensity. I tried to make a back squat yesterday holding Keven on my shoulders, but still not strong enough. Hopefully next week 🙂 Then I would have reached 180 lbs of live weight. I am able to carry him around though pretty easily now 🙂
