UGHHH!! I don’t want to think about this workout again. It seriously kicked my butt. I don’t know if it was because it was only my second day back at CrossFit after a 2 week hiatus, or in fact it was just super hard. From what saw most people were struggling in my class, so I’m gonna go with it was really killer. The workout went like this…
3 Rounds for Repititions (meaning count all your reps)
- 1:00 minute of as many power snatches as possible (75 pounds for men and 55 for women)
- 1:00 minute of as many burpees as possible
- 1:00 minute of as many wallballs as possible (20 pounds for men and 14 for women)
- 1:00 minute of as many sumo deadlift high pulls as possible (75/55)
- 1:00 minute of rest
You go through all those movements and then have a 1 minute rest. After the one minute rest you start at the snatches again. This is done for a total of 3 times. I didn’t think this workout was going to be as bad when I saw it, but I was completely wrong. All the movements are shoulder intensive, so by the second round you are really fatigue in that area. Your legs also get a beating from the movements as well, especially the wallballs. And for a 5’2″ girl, wall balls are not fun. The minute break literally feels like maybe 30 seconds. I was no where near rested when the next round was about to start.
My rounds got worse and worse too. Round 1 – 65 reps, round 2 – 54 reps, and round 3 – 58 reps. I think that last round I only got 9 snatches total. It was a disaster. The only thing that somewhat saved me were the SDHPs. Total Reps were 177. From the morning classes, a few females broke 200, with the most being 213(?) I believe. So if you try this out, shoot for that! I wore my heartrate monitor for the entire class duration and ended up burning 335 calories. I was pretty happy with that considering I probably was only working for about 20 minutes (sprints in the the beginning of class and then the WOD). I hit a max heartrate of 180, which is also good. So overall, this workout kicked my ass, but was a great burner, which I love.
Did you guys do a hard workout last week or recently? How bad was it? Totally worth it in the end?
