A recap of my weekly workouts from the previous week.
Happy Monday! I think I start every weekly workout post with that haha. We are in San Fran right now visiting Michael’s cousin and his fiancé. The trip started off to a rough start with our flight being delayed by 6 hours. But other than that it has been so fun! Lots of sight seeing, some cocktails, and good eats.
This week at CrossFit we tried out a new move that is going to be seen in the CrossFit Open. If you aren’t familiar with CrossFit, the Open is essentially a huge competition between every CrossFitter in the world competing to make it to the games. Even if you just started CrossFit a few months ago you can sign up for the open and see how you compare against some of the top athletes in the world, the members at your gym, or your friend that lives halfway across the country. For 5 weeks there are 5 different workouts released and you have a handful of days to do it and post your score.
So this week we practiced the burpee dumbbell step up since it is apparently going to be seen in the open. Let me tell you, being 5’2″, having 35 pounds in each hand, and stepping up to 20″ is freaking hard. I honestly don’t know if I can do more than a few in a workout. I practiced this week with 25# and that was hard enough. I have mixed feelings about the open and how it makes you feel, so it will be interesting to see what the workouts will entail. I am all about trying new things and improving your capabilities every day though!
