Also, as I was doing this over the course of a month it really made me feel accomplished. Since I don't work out everyday sometimes it doesn't feel like I get a lot of exercise in. However recording it all like this makes me realize just how much I was able to get done in one month! So without further ado...
Front Squat @22×1, 4×6, rest :90
5 min AMRAP (as many rounds as possible in 5 minutes, rest for 2 minutes and 30 seconds and repeat twice)
10 Unbroken Thrusters (I did 45 pounds)
10 CTB Pull-ups (I modified to jumping chest to bar pull-ups)
-rest 2:30- x2
3 min AMRAP of Air Squats (I got 78!)
EMOM 20 (every minute on the minute for 20 minutes)
10 Push Press (I did 35 pounds)
10 Box Jumps (I used an 18 inch box)
I made it through 16 rounds which means I took 4 minutes off to rest. This was a tough one!
Hot yoga at Y2
Peanut Butter Runner is one of my favorite blogs and I got there for blogs and recipes all the time! When I did this I modified modified to regular burpees from lateral jump burpees and modified the push ups to push ups on my knees.
3 mile walk
I do a three mile loop through Freedom Park with a friend almost every Sunday. It's one of my favorite traditions and makes me feel so blessed to live in such a great neighborhood!
10 min AMRAP
15 Chest to Bar Pullups (I modified to jumping CTB pullups)
15 Push Press (don't remember my weight)
Rest for 5:00 minutes, repeat
Sick with bronchitis and the flu. I NEVER get sick so this was a struggle. Obviously no workouts these days... just sleep and working from home!
Yoga Jam at NC Fitness Expo
3 mile walk
21 reps -18 reps -15 reps -12 reps -9 reps -6 reps -3 reps
Thrusters (I did 35 pounds since we had to complete the first 21 without stopping... aka unbroken in Crossfit speak)
Bar Facing Burpees
20 min cap (workout stops after 20 minutes whether you are done or not)
This workout was AWFUL... especially after barely moving for 4 days due to the flu. However, I almost got through 6 reps (completed 158 reps total).
Strict Press (I did 35 lbs) and then....
Kick up to the Wall to a handstand 10 times
15 Kettle bell Swings (I did 35)
15 Burpees over the Erg
Row :30 for max meters (98, 92, 100)
Rest 5:00, do 3 times total
My times for finishing the KB swings and burpees was 2:25, 2:25, 2:05. I think last one was wrong though... sometimes the hardest part of Crossfit is remembering to look at the clock when you're done!
I just started reading Fit Foodie Finds and I've been really loving it so far. I've tried several of her recipes but this was the first workout I've tried... it was a tough one! Especially those jumping lunges!
4.5 mile hike to Crowders Mountain (I was soooo sore for a couple days after... that hike is no joke!)
1 mile run
I NEVER run except for the short distances we do at Crossfit, but I decided to do a 5k with my office so I'm starting to train for the race. I found this training schedule and this was my first attempt. Running is a struggle for me so this should be interesting! Stay tuned.
Find 3 rep max Push Jerk - 60
3 min AMRAP
10 unbroken Push Jerks (I used 40 lbs)
15 Box Jumps (18 inches)
Rest 3 minutes... do 4 times total. I got through 50, 50, 47, and 47 rounds.
Strict Press - I did 35 lbs
Eccentric Strict Press (lower bar down slowly)...collect 15 reps. I used 45 lbs.
100 Dumb Bell Thrusters (started at 15 lbs, dropped to 10lbs)
*5 burpees every minute
This was the hardest workout I've done in a while. 100 thrusters is bad enough, but having to stop every minute to do 5 burpees is pretty brutal (hence dropping the weight). I finished in 9:44... if I had stayed at 15 pounds this would have taken much longer.
Skiing! I love working out doesn't feel like working out!
Phew! I get tired just reading all of this. However, it was great to end the month on a high note with squeezing in a ski day. Looking forward to February!
