Saturday WOD

Another Saturday morning of coaching and today I was able to squeeze in a sweat sesh myself. I modified the workout for myself to be: 4 rounds of: 10 20# dumbbell thrusters 50 mountain climbers 15 ring rows  200 meter farmers carry w/2 20# dumbbells  Those farmers carries were tough at the end. I’m glad I was able to get my 3 days of CrossFit this week. Running has been a little awkward- yesterday I felt tightness in my belly so I walked instead :/ Some weeks are better than others. We just moved into a new house so finding the time to get to the gym has a little tricky. I do what I can and try not to be harsh on myself.  Check back to see my workouts I do while on vacation in Punta Cana next week!

Saturday partner WOD

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!
