SORRY FOR THE SIDEWAYS PICTURES!! (Trying to figure this out...)
Today marked the first of so many Saturday adventures at CrossFit Courage. The group was small, but we all got a damn lot of great work in, and I am extremely confident we'll see this Saturday fun grow to epic proportions. With so much equipment in the process of coming in, we kept things simple, and brough to the back parking lot and side street a Honda Accord with harness, two barbells with 10's and 25's to add on, a sledge hammer and small tire for striking. A good warm up and we hit the workout:
3 alternating rounds of:
25-40 meter car pull
25 meter barbell farmers walk
30 hammer strikes
Hell yes was this fun! It was an all-out sprint through, and Lindsey, Justin and I all challenged our times each round. Justin and Lindsey used just the barbells (Justin threw 10's on them for the final round), and I used 25's on mine (95# each hand), then moved up to 115# each hand for the final round. Justin and I were sub-2 minutes each time, except for my last round where I got 2:03 thanks to the added 10 meters and heavier farmers walk. Lindsey had some pretty impressive improvements reach round, especially given the awesome struggle and victory with those farmers walks!
We then hit 4 rounds each of a 40 meter car push. Then, finished up with a burn-out 100 meter car push sprint. Legs were jelly after that. For those of you out there that want to get in on the fun, "Strong Saturday" is offically happening every single Saturday I am in town at 11am. So if you want to have a blast and work your ass off, come join us.
Now it's off to see The Nutcracker, then have a well-deserved rest day tomorrow, with plenty of fuel and football to prepare me for the absolutely BRUTAL workload I have programmed in for next week!
