Got the opportunity to take a trip home to see Niko and the kitties, so I wanted to try to get at least one Crossfit workout in at Craic. It’s always fun to go to a workout with Niko as well. Was a nice to get my sweat on at my gym, and especially nice because the workout was back squats.
Workout was fairly straight forward:
3 – 2 – 1 – 3 – 2 – 1 (70% – 75% – 80% – 75% – 80% – 85%)
I got to take my first class with Coach Munch – and he’s a great coach. I also worked out with Megan and started out doing the weights that she did, but wanted to bump it up a bit more (not a ton) for the last 3 – 2 – 1. The most exciting part of the workout was that I was able to get into the back squat position for the first time in over a year. It definitely stretched my shoulder a bit, but not in a bad way – just in a way where I know I need to work on my mobility. The most frustrating part of the workout was that I wanted to do more weight, but opted on being smart – so I talked to Coach Marc about what weight to work to. He suggested that I do no more than 135#. So I did the following rep scheme:
95# – 105# – 125# – 115# – 125# – 135#
Overall had no issues with the squats and was just happy to be back squatting again. After the back squats, we all did an AMRAP:
Push Press 115/75 Ring Rows
DUs Single Unders
Attention to all my readers – has anyone seen my double unders? I seemingly have lost them completely and it’s super frustrating. Overall AMRAP was a good quick burner – due to all the running I did this summer – the 200m run was super easy. I’ll leave you all with these pictures from my visit home!
