Strict Press

Posted on

Cheerio! Long time no post!

I’m still working out, don’t fret. Not stopping that in any way. I just don’t post here because apparently it’s too much work to do so. But, as of today…I’m back! …for today, ha.

Anyway, last night we did two rep max strict presses. Holy bejesus, you’d think I’d be stronger by now, but not really.

Bench Press

Posted on Updated on

So for some reason my right knee has been killing me the past few days…but only when I squat or go below parallel.¬† Then, while running I twisted my left ankle stepping on a rock. My lower body basically hates me right now.

So for the strength portion we were supposed to do front squats, but it was modified for me cause of my knee, so I did bench press instead.

I can’t remember right now what my previous best was, although I’m sure it’s noted somewhere in these posts…but I beat it.

21-15-9 Wall Balls/Box Jumps/KBS/Sit Ups

Posted on

This was one tiring workout. Holy moly! And no, still not posting all my workouts, just don’t feel like it.

Anyway, this workout was awesome. It’s a partner workout, and this is how it works. You both start working out at the same time.

Partner 1:
21 wall balls
21 box jumps

Partner 2:
21 KBS
21 sit ups

Once you’re both done with that, you go on a 200 meter run together. Come back and switch workouts.

Partner 1:
21 KBS
21 sit ups

Partner 2:
21 wall balls
21 box jumps

Once you’re both done, run 200 meters together. You continue doing that for the set of 15 and the set of 9.

It was me and Carlos working as a team. Our main competitors were Humberto and Rob, and Matthew and Gadi. It came down to us vs Humberto and Rob, and we beat them by one second!

Super tired at the end of it and just laid on the floor for a good two minutes.

SMMF – Burpees

Posted on

Single movement mind fuck…very interesting name for a workout. It’s a very simple concept, one workout for a specific amount of time, and you do as many reps are possible.

This time is was burpees for seven minutes. I’m actually pretty good with my burpees cause of the burpee challenge I did earlier. I had the best score in the entire class, although it was only two more than the second person. Still counts for first place though :)

Yeah buddy!

So the CrossFit Open is coming up, and we need to be better conditioned. Yesterday, we had a hell of a workout.

3 Mile Run

I¬†hadn’t gone on this run since Sept 3rd. That’s a long ass time. I did take a couple of breaks during the run, actually more than a couple. Anyway, this was a PR run for me. Never before, in my adult life, have I been able to do 3 miles in under 30 minutes. I broke my previous record by 3:34.

It’s kinda surprising that my body, although I’ve definitely gained weight because of my December diet, hasn’t lost much strength. It was totally surprising that I was able to keep up such a fast pace (for me), and still beat my own record.

I’m really pumped, and am excited to get back to the grind of hitting my fitness goals. My scale needs new batteries, so as soon as I can find some, I’ll post my current weight. My goal for the new year, get down to 170. I’m probably around 210 right now.

I could have done a little more, but my form was being compromised, so didn’t wanna mess with it.
