A recap of my weekly workouts from the previous week.
Happy Monday! Hope you had a lovely weekend! I worked and then was busy in the kitchen most of the weekend. Lots of meals being made for people!
Last week was a pretty brutal week of workouts. I think Wednesday and Thursday really caught up to me and by the time Friday came around I was pretty smoked. I did want to the lifting workout my gym had programmed on Friday though since I usually don’t have time to workout on Saturday. And I was so happy to not do any physical activity by the time Saturday came. Thursday and Friday workouts had me so sore! While it’s important to have some strenuous workouts, don’t forget about rest days! It is essential to let your body have time to rebuild, repair, and grow. Not only to help rebuild the muscle that was broken down, but to help you perform your best at your next workout. Don’t forget to give your body the rest that it deserves!

I got 104 burpees and finished in 2:02 for box jumps. We are doing a wellness challenge at CFCL and will test the burpee workout again in 45 days! See video here.
Wednesday – CrossFit City Limits Endurance workout
40 double unders
20 goblet squats (53/35)
*rest 2 mins between rounds
I think I finished around 37:23. I wasn’t keeping very good track of the 2 minute rest though and one round I rowed 500m by accident.
Thursday – CrossFit City Limits workout
15 Air Squats
I completed all 30 rounds RX
Friday – CrossFit City Limits workout
“Big Clean Complex”
6 Sets of the Following:
high hang squat clean + hang squat clean + squat clean + push press
high hang squat clean + hang squat clean + squat clean + push jerk
high hang squat clean + hang squat clean + squat clean + split jerk
*goal is to build in weight each set and must complete entire complex without dropping the bar. Rest as needed between sets.
This was ridiculously hard. Especially after the last few days of working out. All three of those lines is one set. And you aren’t supposed to drop the bar in those sets. Talk about forearm and grip. I did 65/75/85/95/90/95 for weight. The first three rounds were fine. I attempted 95 and had to drop the bar after the push jerk. I went to 90 and got it and then tried 95 again for my last set. Same thing happened where I had to drop the bar after the push jerk. See a short video here.
Saturday – rest day
