Down but not defeated!!

Saturday, March 16, 2013

Today's workout:

Warm up with an 800m row.
Strength training with squat thrust with 25 lb bar.

The work out was 1 rope climb, 2 squat thrusts and 3 handstand push ups. AMRAP in 10 min.

I was not strong enough to do any of the standard exercises so I had to modified versions. Honestly, it was really demoralizing for me. Trying to press past my failure I have marked this day in my journal. I have made it a goal to be able to do this in the next year.

    You are on the right track and will definitely be able to get past this obstacle.
Be sure to post in the Pretty Girls Wear 20 Pearls team fitness forum for "March on to Victory" Challenge.

    Do not despise the small beginnings! You have accomplished more with this workout than most people who just workout their wrists lifting a remote control on that couch! So, keep up the good work and like the other Spark member said, don't count yourself short!

    Doesn't sound like failure to me. You worked hard today even if they were modified. You still did the work. Don't count yourself short.

Today's work out

Thursday, March 14, 2013

Today's work out:

Warm up 2:00 min row.
200ft walking lunges.
15 overhead squats
3 x 5 back squats ( 35lbs)

Work out:

Pyramid reps of push ups and squats 30 second rest then dead lifts and clean ups (35 lbs).

So to do this you do 1 push ups and 1 squat, then 2 push ups and 2 squats, etc until you hit 90 secs. Then you rest for 30 and do the same with the weight combo. after 90 sec you pick up where you left off on the push ups/ squats ( eg round 3) and repeat for 11:30.

Time for bed.

Crossfit Week 3

Monday, March 11, 2013

I am back for more. Today's work out.

Warm up: 10 tricep dips and 10 pull ups, repeat 2x. Then 5 x 3 x 1 clean ups (check SP database for instructions) with increasing weight. I used 43lbs, then 53 lbs and 58lbs.

Work out: 7 sets of 7 burpees, 7 pull ups (assisted) and 7 press ups (33 lbs).

Man am I sore, but what a solid hour. I wanted to quit after 3 rounds but sucked it up and got into the music. Wanted to bail on the last round, and I was the last of the group to finish. Then the most awesome thing happened, my classmate starting cheering me on and one of them dropped to the ground and did those last 5 burpees with me!

Can't wait until tomorrow.


Today she rests!

  This is my rest day as well, the Sabbath Day! My routine is three aerobics classes, 30 minutes of strength training after class, two days of cadio and floor exercises, for one hour. We deserve this break! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon To start all over again tomorrow! emoticon emoticon
