The Gift Is Yours

"Challenge is a dragon with a gift in its mouth... Tame the dragon and the gift is yours."

Who wouldn't be inspired ... watching the Olympics women's weightlifting this morning was quite a treat. Perfect Sunday morning, quite, cool and slow paced.

A reminder of WHAT ;). CrossFit

 World Class Fitness in 100 Words, by Coach Glassman
"Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and NO sugar. Keep intake to levels that will support exercise but not body fat.
Practice and train major lifts: deadlift, clean, squat, presses, C&J, and snatch. Similarly, master the basics of gymnastics:pull-ups, dips, rope climb, push-ups, sit-ups, presses to handstands, pirouettes, flips, splits, and holds. Bike, run, swim, row, etc, hard and fast.
Five or six days per week mix these elements in as many combinations and patterns as creativity will allow. ROUTINE IS THE ENEMY. Keep workouts short and intense.
Regularly learn and play new sports!"
I think that volleyball just might be the later summer rec league that is the new sport for me this year. Let's see how it works out.


Workout of the Day
A.
Three sets, not for time, of:
  • Rope Climb x 2-3 ascents
  • Dragon Flags x 4-6 reps - Did my best here, no bench so did then on a long box. Grip will help the next time around.


B.
Complete as many rounds and reps as possible in 4 minutes of:
  • 10 Handstand Push-Ups - scaled still
  • 15 Box Jumps (24″/20″ – open hips on box)
  • 20 Shoulder to Overhead (75 lbs, a little light, but not willing to pay the 'too heavy' recovery price on this)
  • 25 Pull-Ups
  • 30 Double-Unders
  • Rest exactly 4 minutes.

1 RND + 2 HSPU
Wow! I am a little fatigued today. Had to get my head in the game and pick it up a little for next round. It was a bit stifling in the gym today too. Feeling the week of workouts, not over sore ... just a little drag that I thought was out. Decided to hold off on volleyball this morning because I was pretty excited about this workout.

... and then . . .

C.
Complete as many rounds and reps as possible in 6 minutes of:
  • 10 Handstand Push-Ups
  • 15 Box Jumps (24″/20″ – open hips on box)
  • 20 Shoulder to Overhead (95 lbs)
  • 25 Pull-Ups
  • 30 Double-Unders
  • Rest exactly 4 minutes.

Better!1RND +  2 Pull

...and then . . .

D.
Complete as many rounds and reps as possible in 8 minutes of:
  • 10 Handstand Push-Ups
  • 15 Box Jumps (24″/20″ – open hips on box)
  • 20 Shoulder to Overhead (95 lbs)
  • 25 Pull-Ups
  • 30 Double-Unders
1 RND + 22 DU - Almost 2! That was a bruiser!
