So today in CrossFit I was bound and determined to do the WOD without modifying my pull ups. I want to learn how to kip and decided I was going to force myself to do them without a band. The last few rounds were extremely frustrating but I finished it and I did modify a few at the beginning of the WOD, but then decided I could do them without. I finished way behind everyone because the most I could do in a row were two, so it was a little embarrassing to finish way after everyone else. But if I am determined to learn these and figured since there wasn’t high reps today it would be a good day to try! I finished last and tore the crap out of my left hand, but I did it. Definitely need to practice more that’s for sure.
Here was the WOD today:
Rounds with Reps of: 10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1
Muscle Ups (substitute for muscle ups are pull ups and ring dips – not a single person did this portion unmodified)
Honestly, I don’t know my exact time, but I do know it was over 20 minutes and everyone else finished between 12-15 minutes. :( Guess you got to start somewhere though.
Here are the WODs I haven’t posted about yet.
Last Friday we did a short WOD and then had open gym.
10 minute AMRAP of:
- 5 deadlifts (95)
- 10 hand release pushups
- 15 box jumps
I think I finished with 207 for reps… I actually did pretty decent on this one when compared to others. It felt nice to be good at something actually. Deadlifts and box jumps are definitely a strong thing for me. I don’t have great upper body strength, so need to continue to work on that. Along with my giant list of other things! :)
Saturday’s WOD was lovely one! Lol. It was a lot of reps of a lot of things!
This is what it entailed:
- Run 800m
- 35 knee to elbows
- 40 wall balls
- 3 rounds of: 5 pull ups, 10 hr pushups, 15 squats
- 30 flat outs
- 25 push press
- 500m row
- 100 situps
- 50 double unders
- 100 squats
Man was that a lot of reps… Seemed like it was never ending. The first person was done in 25 minutes… Ridiculous. I have a long ways to go!
Welp… It’s only Monday… Have a great rest of the week! :)
