So begins a brief sojourn out to the Mother Land, the Great White North, the Mitten…whatever you want to call it, I’m going home. Before I bid adieu to The City of Brotherly Love, however, we were able to squeak in some work. Boy, I’m sure glad I stuck around for class!…
Why, you ask? Because everyone who showed up today P.R’d! (Personal Record aka moved the most weight ever!!!) As this was a big week of testing, we started off the session with establishing a new 1 RM Front Squat. Jeremy struck first with a nearly 20# PR, Knick got a 10# PR at an impressive 225#! Madison tested out her new lifting shoes and got 105# (First time maxing out in that lift. Is that number c0rrect there Madison?). Morgan the Destroyer gets the shout out of the day for crushing her old PR by 30# @ 115#! Yeah, gurrrrlllll!
We then climbed the ladder for our WOD tackling wall ball shots and kipping pullups in a short, intense time frame. It was a butt kicker once the reps started getting high. What was worse? The accuracy inducing wall ball shots or the fat bar pullups? I did this workout earlier and I’d have to say each was equally taxing, just in a different manner. Wall balls were cardiovascularly challenging, while the pullups were a test of muscular endurance and kinesthetic awareness (knowing and responding to how one’s body moves through space).
Anywho, class resumes at 10:30 am on Tuesday . Let me know if you are coming. Ice any thing (20 minutes on, 20 minutes off, 20 minutes on x 3 a day) that is not feeling purty!
