I continue to get requests for the Living Social deal, and I’m trying to come up with an appropriate way to let folks know that the deal is not longer available. Your suggestions are welcome.
Folks have suggested that I keep a list of things that I say when I coach. That list would include:
- Form, consistency, and then intensity.
- Posture, lean, and lift!
- Put some weight on the bar.
- I don’t care how it feels, I only care how it looks.
- Tight abs, tight ass.
- Does anyone need any laundry washed? On my abs?
- Scaling is always and option.
- There’s no shame in scaling, there’s only shame in failing.
Did I miss anything?
I sweatily worked out this morning at 7:30, and it was good.
10 back squats (115/83)
10 front squats (105/73)
10 power cleans (95/63)
10 hand release pushups
This was both challenging and quite fun. My goal was to complete all rounds unbroken, and that’s what I did. I did, however, take my time removing and adding plates to the bar. Back squats were the easiest, and, even though the weight was the lightest, power cleans were the most difficult of the lifts. Oh, the bar started from the floor for all rounds. Time 10:58.
Benchmark WOD “Annie”
I can only recall having done this WOD once before, and that was when I first began CrossFitting over 3 years ago. I am certain I achieved a PR.
Luke is once again obsessed with a squeaky toy, and he was all up in my business for each round of sit-ups. And that’s okay.
Not much else to report other than, you know, I completed all rounds unbroken and all. Yup, 50, 40, 30, 20, & 10 unbroken reps of double unders and sit-ups. Time 6:58.
