“Aerodynamically, the bumble bee shouldn’t be able to fly, but the bumble bee doesn’t know it so it goes on flying anyway.” ― Mary Kay Ash
Double K was in the house tonight. Kim and Ke-Ho, giving some CF love. Was one of those days today too, where I thought I might just go ahead and skip class. Aw, c’mon, what’s the diff. I’ve been doing well, hitting the WOD’s regularly. What’s one day, really? But then, sure enough, put one foot in front of the other, and walked through the front door and into the triple-wide, and so glad I did. Hit a PR! Who knew. Just two days ago was lamenting how I was stuck between 45 and 55lbs Push Press. Then lo, nay, behold, PR’d on the Push Press at 75lbs. What tha? Yep, Push press at 75lbs.
Yeah, do not have the strength yet to do these, can almost push up to a full back bend, but not quite there yet. Yet.
I. Push Press
5 – 5 – 5 – 5 – 5
Completed: Round One @ 55lbs. Round Two @ 60lbs. Three @ 65lbs. Four @ 70lbs. Five @ 75lbs. PR!
II. AMRAP in 10 Minutes:
10 Kettlebell Swings (70/53)
Completed: 7 rounds and 4 KB swings. Kettle Bell @ 35lbs.
Not sure if you watch The Biggest Loser at all. It’s become a Tuesday night routine for yours truly. Not that I can even make it through a full two-hour (really?) episode, but for some reason I look forward to coming home after hitting a WOD and cooking, while BL rambles on in the background. If you’re a fan of the show you’ll know Bob Harper. He’s been on there since like, day one. But recently, you’ll notice something else going on too, he’s gone Crossfit. From the knee high socks, to the Reebok gear, and now, all his workouts, are def, def, definitely CF moves. A little Googlage and it seems it’s official.
I’m enjoying watching the contestants work through the moves. Their form, the weights, the reps. Watching what little is actually aired, that is. For, if you’ve ever watched the show you know too, its wildly over-edited. But if you can maintain the attention span long enough past the shameless product placements and snarky contestant comments, and focus on those tiny snip-its of Bob workout sessions, you’ll notice your old friend CF winking back at you. Just a couple weeks ago and he had the contestants hit Fran. So, there you go.
