Okay, I think I’m done with CrossFit for a bit; my traps sort of hurt to the touch. And by “a bit” I mean I’ll take a rest day tomorrow. But I scored a new 1 rep max today, so that was fun!
1 Rep Max of the following combination:
- 1 Shoulder press
- 2 Push press
- 3 Push jerks
Before the max, we also warmed up with a “mini Annie” doing 20 reps, 10 reps, and 5 reps of double unders and sit-ups. Funny how that used to be a “work out” and now it’s warm up! Okay, it felt like a work out. I was the last one to peel myself off of the floor. And then we did one minute AMRAP of pull-ups. Even with the big ol’ band, I still barely scored 8, and some of them were questionable as my arms barely made a 90 degree angle, let alone my head passing the bar. Then we did dumbbell rows and dumbbell rollbacks, and THEN we maxed the sequence.
It was such a fun day. And I tapped out at 38 kg, which I was stoked. On my first try, I couldn’t do it. So I gave it a few minutes rest and tried again. The coffee must’ve finally kicked in or something.
Then I flew home and slammed my breakfast of homemade yogurt and frozen blueberries while trying to take a shower at the same time.
I would like to joke that bathroom food tastes better, but let’s be honest: if you’re eating in the bathroom, it’s because you’re running late anyway and are hoovering food in your face with complete abandon to your tastebuds. But I do love homemade yogurt. We got a Yogourmet yogurt maker off of Amazon a while back, and I will never buy yogurt in the store again. It’s super easy, and tastes way better. Pro tip: I like to add a pack of gelatin to the milk before I mix in the culture to get it a bit extra thick. Extra thick, and extra good for the gut! 🙂
That’s all for now. Go make it a great day!
