One of my many, many goals in crossfit is to go to be able to compete in a competition and do relatively well, meaning that I do all workouts prescribed and I do them to the best of my ability. So this past Saturday Karen, Dave, and myself decided to head to West Chester for the Lockdown competition. 4 guys and a girl from CrossFit 610 were competing and I wanted to show my support while also judging how far I need to go to be able to do well in a competition. Here is what I learned. I am a weak lil sissy and I have VERY VERY VERY far to go before I’m anywhere near the level some of these gyus are on. Even the “weakest” competitor would destroy me in every single workout (except for the final WOD, which I think I could do well with, but prolly not after 11 other WODS).
Dennis is on the leftand all the competitors are on the right.
It was very awesome to watch though, I wish I could have stayed longer but the group with me wanted to leave (and good thing cause I passed out on the way home). In the end trainer Mike took away First place! His wife Molly took second in the women’s competition which is awesome! The other members of CrossFit 610 also did amazing.
What do I have to do to get to the competition level? Well, one of 2 things. Either be patient and try to get in one next summer when I have reached all my fitness goals or contact Mark McGuire and have him recommend me a doctor so I can be there in like October. Considering that I like the size of my balls and I don’t feel like buying a bunch of new hats, I think I’ll go the natural route.
What I am going to do though is more than just the one WOD a day. I need to work harder and do a hell of a lot more than I am so I can get my cardio and strength up to par. Two a days have to start happening and I also have to start getting on the rower after each and every workout. I am starting to want more than just to be fit, I want to be a competitor.
Only 2 weeks left of the best fit of your life Challenge!
Friday WOD: 3 rounds of 50 double unders, 20 KB swings
I tried to do 2 pood but it was just too much. My grip is nowhere near where it needs to be. I also really need to continue practicing my double unders. Completed in 14:10 which is just pitiful.
Saturday WOD: 7 muscle ups (7 ring dips, 7 ring rows), 21 SDLHP (Sumo Dead Lift High Pull) 14:49
I felt great during this workout and really busted my ass to finish before 15 min. I did a purple band for the ring dips which I'm a little embarrassed about since I think I can do them without it.
