Crossfit Musings and Misadventures

  • Crossfit Musing 1: It has been 3 weeks and I still feel like a total newbie whenever I walk into class. We are always doing something new and different. I have yet to repeat a workout and it is always hard (*in a good way*)
  • Crossfit Musing 2: I succeeded in doing my first Double Under! (Double Under = skipping, and getting the jump rope to do 2 full rotations in 1 jump). But I can only do one... working on it...
  • Crossfit Musing 3: I finally added weight to my bar! I split jerked 65lbs! So I am gonna go ahead and call that a WIN!
  • Crossfit Musing 4: I really like kettlebells! Who knew?!
  • Crossfit Musing 5: I am still such a weakling. Pullups and Ring Dips require some serious assistance from the band. And even with the band it's hard! I'll get there eventually though.
Love your Favourite Darwinian Fail,

  2. I really like KB too! I never used them until about 6 mo ago at a little event we went to and there was a 30min boot camp class with them. Now, I like to do them all the time. I can't wait to get into Crossfit - a couple more weeks :) My goal is to be able to do one unassisted pull up.

  3. I've been loving your Crossfit-themed Instagrams! It always looks like such a challenging workout!
    Double-unders are on my list for 2013. Thankfully, we don't have rings at my gym...

  7. That is some great progress within your short amount of time!! Double unders sometimes take months or even years to get!! I also really love kettle bell swings. Keep at it, you're doing great!

  11. I hear you on the pull-ups! I finally graduated from the green band to the blue one, and I'm considering that a major win. Congrats on your progress!

  12. I love this! I can't afford a gym membership so I've been doing a home CF workout. I wanted to pump it up a bit so I bought a 10lb kettlebell. My next purchase will be a box for box jumps. I hear CF is awesome addition for runners!
