Six-Week Challenge: Week 2

CrossFit is so empowering – I am so inspired by the women in my CrossFit Full Strength six-week challenge. Everyone is showing up, which on dark, cold mornings can be rough, and putting forth a great effort. It’s fun that we’re all at different levels and can learn so much from each other. I’m also loving the 3x a week commitment – it’s perfect for me and the fam right now.

To anyone who’s on the fence about CrossFit, these types of fundamental/foundational sessions are the true training grounds for anyone interested in the sport. This last week we focused on the basic movements of some of the Olympic lifts – and we were learning directly from a two-time Olympian! How cool is that?!

The lifts covered were: deadlifts, should press, push press, push jerk, and power cleans. I really love lifting and was the component of CrossFit I missed most!

Week Two WODs:

Fourth WOD: 12min AMRAP – 200m run + 30m walking lunges + 10 pull ups (green band): 2 rounds + 200m run – those walking lunges made my booty ache the rest of the week!

Fifth WOD: 3 rounds: 300m row + 5 k2e (kipping) + 10 push press (65#), 2 minute rest in between rounds: 12:56 – I started with 85# push press and had to drop to 65#.

Sixth WOD: 5 rounds: 7 wall balls (10#) + 7 deadlifts (85#): 2:58 – could have obviously gone heavier with both wb and dl considering my time!

I’m on the fence about signing up for the CrossFit Games Open – have you signed up?
