A great cardio workout that took alot out of me… I focused on running form as much as possible on the runs, especially during the end. Also partitioned the reps of the wallballs to 10 at a time and segments of 20 for the double unders. This did extend the time though, which is not what I wanted.

I also thought about how cardio is more apparent in Crossfit, especially at the Games.It was sparked off by this post on Instagram by Ben Bergeron. I was an okay runner before I started Crossfit, and whilst I could see definite results in my running because of the training, I always thought that we should run more as Crossfittters, as that is the ultimate form of human movement. Today proved that I don’t run enough. Need to get some more kms logged.

*13 minute time cap.

Time: 13:00 (15kg) (did 10/200 DU’s)

Tried to do everything unbroken but the double unders proved tricky. I split those up into sets of 10, which may have cost me some valuable time. I also had to break up the set of 15 dumbbell presses into 7 + 8. The rest was unbroken though. Pushups were very hard, but at least I could do them! More a technical WOD and I think I could’ve used a heavier weight, but alas, my shoulder… Those double unders are something to work on.

28 January 2015 – Supermans!

My stomach needed this today. Lately I’ve felt that I’m losing my mid ab strength, whilst the lower portion was getting stronger. The mid section certainly worked today though! I also found out that I really suck at Supermans LOL!

 

Strength:
Deadlift
Take percentages based off 90% of your 1 RM (90% of 160kg = 144kg)
70% x 3 (100kg)
80% x 3 (115kg)
90% x 3 (130kg)
90% x AMRAP to “not failure”. Leave one or two in the tank (130kg x 5 reps)

WOD:
3 rounds for time of:
Run 800 meters
50 Supermans
50 sit-ups
* advanced can do hollow rocks or V-Ups instead of sit ups

Time: 27:05 (did the situps)
