Warm up: 1 minute jump rope (single jump), 1 minute rest. 3 rounds
Skill: wall walk to handstand
5 rounds: 100ft bear crawl, 100 ft broad jump. 3 burpees every 5 broad jumps
I was able to scale this and did 3 rounds in 8:12. Btw, the burpees I've been doing aren't correct. These were killer. Chest down to the ground, hop up and then jump, clapping overhead. Say whaaaaat?!
This was my first official crossfit workout (Friday am), and I'm hooked. On Wednesday, I went for my intro session. Completed the intro WOD in 6:41, a time the coaches were pleased/impressed with as they've seen men take as long as 20 minutes, ns others not complete because they had to throw up. The intro WOD is a 400m run, 40 air square, 30 sit-ups, 20 pushups, 10 pull ups. The beauty of CF is the scalability. I went to my knees after 8 pushups, used the blue band for the first 5 pull ups, Went to green and had Conan assist the final 5. Funny how by themselves, I can do 20 pushups, no knees. But, after a run (which I stupidly practically sprinted (for me) in 1:30) and sit-ups, pushups are a beast! Anyway, after the pull ups, I was ready to puke! And I couldn't stop yawning, which Jerry confirmed was common after intense workouts. Phew.
So, I'm hooked. Oh, and did I mention this was a 5am class. I'll be back on Monday.
