I hate cleans..

Today's Workout:

6X8 Squats 225lbs

5x Superset:
8 reps Flat Bench 170lbs
10 Shoulder Raises 5lbs

4x Superset:
8 Chin ups

3 Farmers Walks (roughly 120 meters)

4x8 Front Squats on a Bosu Ball 45 lbs

1 round of "Jacob Ups" (roughly 10 meters)
-jacob up: start off in pushup position, pushup, walk your hands forward, do a pushup with shoulders extended, then walk feet forward until you're back into pushup position, repeat.

I do not like Cleans. They made me really tired.
First time doing Jacob ups in a long time.

I like to do a whole body workout every time i go to the gym. I don't have enough time to go everyday because of work and school, so I go 3 times a day (tues, thurs, sunday). I also usually don't repeat the same workout every time. however, I do try to include squats and some form of bench press in every workout.

Oh yeah. I tested my dumbbell bench on thursday. I did 1 set of 5 with 90 lbs, and a set of 4 with 95. I guess I'm making progress.

Brutal Crossfit workout

I did the WOD for tuesday march 23.

For Time:
70 Burpees
60 Situps
50 Kettlebell Swings (20 lbs)
40 Pull-ups
30 Handstand pushups

I decided that 40 pull ups straight would be really hard so I split it up in 2 sets (45 burpees, 30 situps, etc.)

This workout was Epic. Tough. Brutal.
Burpees were really really tough after the first set. Sit ups weren't too bad I just did 30 straight each time. The swings were tough for the second set: i had to take a break after 30 reps. second set pull ups were tough as well: broke it down into 10, 5, 5. Handstand pushups were hard. I'm not skilled enough to do it without a wall. they were really hard. I had to do like 3-6 at a time.

I did the whole workout in 14:25. The fastest time on the Crossfit website was under 10 minutes... @_@

After the workout, I felt really lightheaded and wanted to throw up. Luckily, I didn't.

After that we just played around in the gym doing random exercises.
6 bent over rows, 10 pushup super set.
Triceps pull downs
and some ab exercises
