Year 4 Begins

Solid sleep again! I could get used to this. In for the 9am class.

3 years ago I did my first CrossFit workout and almost didn’t make it out the door. I was hooked and I love it just as much as I ever have, maybe more. CrossFit has changed my life in many great ways and I can’t see myself doing anything else.

Power Cleans

  • 5×95#
  • 3×135#
  • 2×155#
  • 2×175#
  • 2×195#
  • 2×215#
  • 1×225#
  • 1×235#
  • 1×245#
  • 1×255#
  • 1×265# (PR & matches my best clean)

I didn’t have any second thoughts about 245# or 255#, but add that extra 10# and it starts to get in my head. I was confident I’d hit it without much trouble, but still it was still scary. Fitting for Halloween I guess.

4 Rounds NFT

  • 8 GHD Sit-ups (14# MB)
  • 10 Reverse Hyper (210#)

20:00 AMRAP

  • 5 Power Cleans (185#)
  • 7 Push-ups
  • 9 Air Squats

Decided to go heavy as a way to pace this out. If I had used something like 95# it would have been all gas on the cleans. I did the first round pretty fast and then settled into a relaxed pace until there was about 3 minutes left on the clock when I picked up the pace. Did the air squats pretty slow, with a focus on pushing my ass back first. Finished 12 rounds and 2 more cleans for a total of 62 power cleans!

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