Hero: Erin

Even though I worked out or ran Monday through Friday, I still put on 5 pounds during the week due to all of the food and deserts I ate at the work meetup in Florida. I’m home now so will get back to Paleo and should be able to drop the weight by the end of the week.

Today was my first workout at the new Survival Fitness location. The pull-up rig is much nicer than the moving bars at the old location, because this thing doesn’t budge.

Warm-up

  • 4 rounds
    • 15s Jumping Jacks
    • 15s Air Squats
    • 15s Mountain Climbers
    • 15s Squat Jumps
  • 30 Squats (holding PVC as if it were a pole)
  • 20 PVC Pass-thrus
  • 30 PVC OHS

WOD

“Erin”
Five rounds

  • 15 DB Split Clean
  • 21 Pull-ups

The workout calls for 40# DBs, so that’s what I used. The split cleans ended up being much harder than expected. I split them up into 3 sets of 5 during every round. In the first round I knocked out 15 kipping pull-ups in a row for a new unbroken PR (beating 12 as my previous best). I finished in 21:13.

For the rest of the class we did some mobility work.

I'm searching for the perfect golf swing and my first hole-in-one. I'm addicted to CrossFit. I work for Automattic.
