weight lifting

WOD #9 - 11/20/17

Only two crossfit classes this week!

Today’s pre-WOD was push press 5x5. I partnered up with two other ladies who were doing 55lb and although it was heavy for me, I managed! I got a nice like PR gold star for it being the heaviest push press I’ve done.

The workout of the day was:

  • 200m run
  • 10 thrusters / burpee over the bar
  • 200m run
  • 8 thrusters / burpee over the best
  • 200m run
  • 6 of each
  • 200m run
  • 4 of each
  • 200m run
  • 2 of each

Thrusters I did at 25lb and tried to work on going as low as I can while keeping my chest upright. I choose running, which in 30~ degree weather was pretty chilly. Burpees weren’t as bad as they felt last week. I finished last in my class at 16:22, but it felt like a good workout so I’ll take it.

Screw cardio, ladies start lifting weights:

- you’ll lose 20 - 40% more body fat
- burn more calories
- increases daily energy
- you will NOT get bulky ( if you’re a girl, you don’t produce enough testosterone to get humongous silly )
- heavier you lift, the leaner you get
- build stronger bones
- stronger healthier heart
- you’ll get fit and toned ( cuz who doesn’t want that, right? )
- increased growth hormones
