Overslept this morning and kind of thought I was going to skip Crossfit today until my FUPA ripped through my pants during the workday, convincing me that the workout was necessary.
So I went to 5:30.
Warm Up: Usual stuff. Quads are sore from a 38 mile ride I did on Sunday. I knew it was going to be a rough day from the first pull on the rower.
SWOD: Split Squat 3×8 each leg
3×8@ 33 lbs
Holy crap these were hard. Everyone around me was adding weight but there was no way I could. My form was crap even with just the bar.
Yeah, I realize these are essentially just a lunge, but for some reason just keeping my balance in that split stance had my legs screaming.
Pull Ups (Ring Rows)
Pretty self explanatory little WOD. I love tabata, and this one was as fun as I hoped.
Not sure why, but I actually started out really slow. I only managed 9 squats on the first round, but after that got between 11-13 (usually closer to 13) each round.
Guess maybe my legs just took some convincing?
