At CrossFit Full Strength, in their CrossFit 101 class.

Warm-up

  • 400m run
  • 2 rounds
    • 5 Pull-ups (jumping)
    • 10 Push-ups
    • 15 Squats

Strength
4 rounds, 7 reps, 2-1-2-1 tempo, ~90s rest between rounds
Deadlifts (115#, 115#, 135#, 135#)

WOD

  • 250m row
  • 21-15-9
    • Push press (75#)
    • Box jumps (tire – 18″?)
  • 250m row

The dead lifts felt good. I finished the WOD in about 9:18. I really like the strength work and being able to use a barbell compared to my gym in Saginaw where we really only used dumbbells. First time on a rower today and I can tell it’s going to be a love-hate relationship.

Deck of Cards

At Survival Fitness.

Warm-up
5 round Tabata mash-up

  • Jumping jacks
  • High knees
  • Butt kicks

WOD
45:00 Deck of Cards

Suits:

  • ♣ – Goblet squats (55# KB)
  • ♠ – 2x Russian KBS (55# KB)
  • – Mountain climbers or plank (1 minute)
  • – Burpees

Ranks:

  • Ace – 14
  • King – 13
  • Queen – 12
  • Jack – Pick another card and double it, using the suit of the new card
  • 10 through 2 – face value

For example if the K♣ comes up you do 13 goblet squats. If any Jack comes up, another card is flipped. If the next card was the 9♠ that would be 2 x 9 = 18 (since swings already double the rep count) and then double it because of the jack for 36 swings. The is always one minute unless a jack is involved and it would become 2 minutes. If you picked the A you wouldn’t have to do 14 minutes!

In 45 minutes I completed 47 cards. Only had 5 left! The last time we did a deck of cards it was a 40 minute limit and different exercises, but I only completed 30 cards.
