Fitness Friday

A very CrossFit-ty week this week, along with the requisite walking of the dog – thank goodness for the nicer weather we have been having lately!


Yoga – about 45 minutes, focused on the lower body


20 kettlebell swings (26lb)
20 overhead walking lunges (10lb)
20 dips
20 pull-ups
20 knees to elbows
20 box jumps
20 wall ball (6lb)
20 thrusters (20lb)
20 sumo deadlift high pulls (33lb)
*2 burpees between each*


First thing in the morning I did some weightlifting just to wake all of my muscles up – 5×5 deadlifts at 105lbs and 5×5 press and 38lbs – and then in the afternoon I did some farm fit – two hours of shoveling hauling bedding to the lean-to, and spreading it out for the steers.


As many rounds as possible in 12 minutes:
10 push jerk (33lb)
10 KB swings (26lb)
10 box jumps
7 rounds minus 5 box jumps


50 lunges and 50 squats for a warm-up, and then . . .

As many rounds as possible in 18 minutes:
15 pull-ups
400m run
5 push-ups
3 rounds +15 pull-ups + 200m


5 rounds for time:
6 deadlift (75lbs)
6 knees to elbows
6 squats
6 push ups
6 lunges (right leg)
6 lunges (left leg)
6 push jerk (38lbs)


Rest! And about time . . . both my upper body and lower body were both a bit sore. But this afternoon I will be back to the gym again.
