Wednesday night with Jason J at SISU.
I forgot my bag at home so I’m working out in some clunky shoes and some borrowed shorts from Brent.
Ok first and foremost that warmup looks a little edited… It was a 1000m row at 5:30… God I don’t even want to know what they had to do at 4:30. It was a nice little warmup, I didn’t finish the entire 1000M before because I was talking to Brent about a laptop. During the warmup Whitney got a new PR on STRICT pullups at 6! Thats awesome.
For the skill we did some HSPU work, I had some fun doing these. I was trying to do some free standing ones with Brent holding my feet and I did one pretty good one. I’d love to work on these…. It would be so awesome to do a free standing hspu. And again Whitney does an awesome thing with a strict hspu! AWESOME! She does some sort of happy dance thing? We aren’t sure on what it was but its a great day for her.
Workout of the Day
5 Sets of
Well its Cindy with a twist.
Its laid out a little different. Do each round, and then rest 1/2 the time it took you to complete the Round.
I got to work out with some good friends on this too, Whitney and Derek, one new to crossfit the other an old 6:30 Crew member from way back. The workout is a bit rushed and everything is going so fast to start up. I didn’t get one of my hands tapped but oh well got to get to work.
The first round was all strict pullups and it went pretty good pushups all unbroken and a few little rests here and there in the squats. I think I finished in about 5 minutes something. So We wait 2:40ish start back up.
Round two was a bit harder but still getting the pullups and the pushups are still good. Squats are getting a bit harder… I think I finish in 14:00 something, so I need to rest 3:50ish.
I take a look around, no one is really resting. A lot of people are just working out and just keep going. There are people that finish after me that start before me. Its confusing, I dont’ care.
I go outside to cool off man does 30 degrees feel good. Cough a bit spit something out, oh thats blood. Wonder where that came from… Not sure but I’m too tired to worry about that. I spit a few more times and nothing so good to go.
Third round is hell, the pullups are falling apart. I’m kipping a few of them at this point and I am exhausted. Pushups are still strong and I do them all unbroken again. Squats are getting a bit slower but I am able to do them.
I go outside to cool off / die. I think if i’m going to die it should be in a cooler temperature. Derek asks me how the hell I am able to do the pushups, hes beating me in everything but I’m passing him in those.
Jason says the timer is now set at 32:00 and we have to stop after that, I grab a stopwatch at 30:30 and start it. No way I’m not finishing this dam thing.
Fourth round I am kipping my pullups my pushups are still unbroken which I am proud of. The squats are slow and the timer goes off and I keep going. I look around most people stop or are done. But Whitney is going to finish too, which is awesome someone else is doing it with me. the last sets of pullups were murder and then it happens on the last set last two pushups… I drop I cannot do them. I try to do one I fail. I rest for a couple seconds do two and move on…. Squats are done and I’m spent. I feel pukey.
The good: I didn’t quit, pushups were tight and strong and I made sure to lock out and do them well. I did strict pullups for a lot of this workout.
The Bad: Squats need to be faster and more consistent. Pullups need to be quicker and better. Failed at pushup 198 to do all sets unbroken
My time 35:40
