So never, ever, ever, ever say "that doesn't look so bad" when you see a crossfit workout. And if some one says "that's easy" then challenge them to come in and give it a try.
5 rounds of:
50 air squats
3 min break between rounds.
Times 4:45, 6:30, 6:05, 6:45, 5:57 (times are approximate as they were taken by my phone constantly running)
This was a crossfit 610 field trip day to the local park. Proves yet again that if life throws you a curve ball, you CAN still get a great workout in. Had a great time with this group. Acorns were going places that even the best squirrel detective could not find.

|3 of the 4 motions in action. Missing the Pull-up bar.|

Sunday: Rest day. Painted a room in the house
Monday: Strength: 70% x 3; 80% x 3; 90% x 3+ of Back Squat AND shoulder press
WOD: 100 DU, 100 Ring Rows, 100 Double Unders
Rings Rows SUCK! As for the strength I felt like I killed it. I was able to do 5 reps at 90% which is funny because 90% is about 190lbs which is 5 pounds HIGHER than my one rep max of about a month and a half ago. The shoulder press I was able to do 8 reps of 90 lbs (my one rep max is 95lbs).
As for the WOD...ouch. False grip still is a problem but I tried to do it for a lot of the ring row stuff. Double Unders are getting better each time I do them. I got through the first 100 in about 1:45 which means I would have killed my 2 min max of 105. I'm moving in the right direction!
This past weekend was difficult diet wise. I did well at times..then when I was presented with free ice cream the caveman in me just disappeared and fat Dennis made an appearance. Ice cream is without a doubt my biggest vice and I have to do more to control it. Did some great grocery shopping yesterday which should help make this week go really well.
