On Saturdays, I coach the 2 classes at my box; one at 9am and then another one at 10am. This was the fun partner WOD for today that they had to do 2 times:

Run 200 meters

50 thrusters 

Run 200 meters

50 weighted sit-ups 

Run 200 meters 

50 ring rows 

Run 200 meters 

50 Kettlebell swings 

I decided to do it myself after the 10am, but I definitely shouldn’t have worn my running sneakers for this! 

Here’s part of the KB swings…

  

It’s still one of those movements that I need to coach my athletes on- they tend to lean forward too much. By having them engage their hips and really squeeze their butts at the top of the movement, they were able to improve the technique.

 

I love KB swings, don’t you? 

Happy weekend!

Hi! My name is Julia and I'm a 30-something year-old Paraguayan-born, New Jersey toddler mom. My passion for fitness started when I was 15 years old and joined my local YMCA to learn how to properly strength train. Although I briefly joined my high school track team my junior year in high school, I consider myself a late-bloomer as an athlete. I'm a CrossFit Level 1 coach who first discovered CrossFit with a personal trainer 3 years ago and have been loving it ever since. My other passion is running! To date, I've completed 10 half-marathons and 2 marathons, including Philadelphia and New York. Combining endurance running and CrossFit WODs has helped me obtain PRs as well as age group awards over the past 2 years. I hope to inspire and motivate other mere mortals like myself in leading active, healthy lifestyles!

    1. Hi Emma! You want to think about generating force with your hips and quads, not your upper body. When you bring the kettlebell between your legs, it should only be slightly behind your body; when you lean forward a lot, the kettlebell would be way behind you, so you would want to avoid that…Thank you for reading!
