My friend and colleague, Christa, and I attended the 6pm session at CrossFit Conshy last night. Jay led the session, and the focus was on the snatch. I’m being very responsible and allowing my left bicep to heal, so I did not do much lifting – and certainly no heavy lifting. I instead provided coaching for Christa.
I’ve said it before and I’ll probably say it again: I miss the focus on mobility.
16-minute Tabata alternating 135# dead-lifts and rings pushups
My goal was to complete all rounds of dead-lifts and ring pushups not only unbroken but in equal number of reps. Thus, I determined that I would complete 12 dead-lifts and 10 rings pushups each round.
I did complete all rounds in unbroken reps and did complete exactly 12 dead-lifts and 10 ring pushups. I underestimated my abilities on the ring pushups, and this workout was easier than it should have been. I completed all rounds of ring pushups in 13 seconds; thus, I rested 17 instead of 10 seconds before beginning dead-lifts. I usually completed dead-lifts in 15 to 18 seconds, and thus had a few extra seconds of rest before beginning ring pushups as well. While others were breathing heavily and sweating profusely, I felt relaxed the entire time. The 16 minutes went by far too quickly!
After a cool down, I provided some guidance for Christa and she was able to complete her first double under. Yeah, Christa!
I’m resting today. Unless I don’t rest.
