I Graduated Cross-Fit Elements Class

Saturday, March 31, 2012

Woo Hoo!! 1 month down a heck of a lot more to go!

Thurs was my last Elements class! Of course they save the best for last.. rings and rope!! Now I didnt do that well with the rings, I knew I wouldnt so no big deal. They showed us all the fun ways to use the rings for different types of exercise. But just for today we worked on dips. I used the assistant bands to help with dips and i did pretty well. I cant wait till i can do it all by myself!! We were also shown pullups on the rings.. OMG IT WAS HARD!! I got as far as bending my elbows just a little. My new goal in life is to be able to do 10 pull ups!! lol Next we worked on the rope.. Lets just say I got REALLY excited to work that rope.. lol I wanted to see if i could climb it because i knew its going to be in the Tough Mudder. So my first attempt was.. ok but my second attempt was awesome.. I claimed that rope like it was nothing.. So i was happy..

Ok now the WOD.. We did the same WOD we did on the first day so we can compare times.

300m ROW
Goblet Squats
Push Ups
Russian Twists
300m Row

First Day Time: 6:40
Thurs Time: 5:45


I was super happy with my results. I cant wait till i get better and start seeing more results.

So now I'm done.. no more baby class.. I'm with the big kids now. I'm a little nervous to be the new kid again but that ok :) I am going to kick ass. :)

On another note.. has anyone done the CLEAN 21 day detox diet?? I m thinking about doing it. I bought the book and really consider it.. Thoughts?

  If you thought Crossfit was tough up to this point, all you have experienced is Crossfit Kindergarten. Now you will be lumped in with all the tough, elitist, bad asses that Crossfit is know for.

    AWESOME JOB. You'll love being in the real classes and it sounds like you're training will definitely have you ready for it. Chances are you won't finish first on "for time" WODs, but if your box is anything like mine, the support I get when I'm finishing up helps push me through.

As for the detox, I agree with what has already been said. If it involves fasting, I'd be nervous about pairing that with CF. I've looked at the Paleo diet which people at my box do with great results.

Good luck and can't wait to share your adventures in Crossfit with you!

    Great job! A lot of people have a lot of problems climbing the rope!
I have never tried that Detox diet. My only reservation would be that you would be cutting out essential minerals and nutrients during this time. I would also recommend going to a Paleo diet. You will find cutting out the sugars and processed foods from your diet will make a tremendous difference in health and wellness.

Good luck!

    woohoooo! you rock! Don't be nervous - there's a whole new group of supporters who are excited to get to know you and welcome you!

As long as you listen to your body and speak up if something hurts, you will not get injured. Just be honest with yourself and your coach and you'll be a-o-kay!

I don't know anything about the detox diet - I would consider asking your CF coach about how he/she feels about you doing it at the same time as CF - I don't know anything about it but if involves fasting and stuff you might not get the nutrients you need for CF?!

But if it's more like completely cutting out sugars and you can only eat a million carrots the first week or something like that as long as you are getting enough calories I think it'd be okay.

Have you considered the paleo diet? I'm a vegetarian so it's out of the question for me but I like the principals of eating a completely clean and unprocessed diet....
