Admittedly the blog-post-per-workout is a bit ambitious. I’ve been at Collar City CrossFit for going on three weeks now. Every workout is a blast and I look forward to going to CF every time. Yesterdays Burpee Fran was killer and the hardest workout I’ve done. Ever. But it really felt great finishing it.
This past Sunday on a long bike ride I PR-ed a segment of the usual ride I do. Not sure what’s the cause of the PR but I’d like to think CF has some benefits that have translated over to the bike. Awesome ride, felt great the whole time and felt even better eating a burrito right after.
Yesterday was my first session over at Collar City Crossfit.
I’ve been looking for a gym to join for a while, since even at my fittest, I totally have a cyclists body; crazy legs and no upper body at all. Planet Fitness and all that are cheap as hell but no one gives a shit if you go, and I am really not the most motivated person, especially if alone.
So I wen’t over to CCCF for my Elements 1 class where they basically teach you some of the moves and lifts that are done during the WODs (Workouts of the Day). It’s not a crazy intense day as they’re basically figuring out where you’re at.
I learned all the basic CF stuff, the back squat, front squat, and overhead squat which are all just loaded squats. Also kettlebell swings, medicine ball toss squats (don’t remember their real name) and a bunch of others.
At the end, I did my workout, which was as many rounds in five minutes of 3 burpees, 5 kettlebell swings, and and 7 box jumps. This was super hard but I managed to do 6 round which seems pretty good for never doing that before. Also my base level for back squats was 100lbs. Both are good to start with but I can’t wait to see where this goes.
The ultimate goal is a more successful cyclocross season, which is why this is on here.
