So today was the second day of my Crossfit challenge and it was a hard one. That is meant to be in a good way. I had a really fun and intense workout yesterday as many of my Instagram followers know so I was pumped to get to “The box” this morning.
I had a 5:30 session with Jared cause I had to be a work this morning early so it was just me and him. It was like having a personal trainer for an hour. We did not get a chance to talk on Monday so we bonded on our 400 meter warm up jog. He really is a nice guy and knows his stuff.
When we came back in he made me practice my squats again which at this point I feel I have perfected. Then he showed me how to work on my mobility in my shoulders using a plastic pipe.
After showing me some really handy moves he then told me how to do a deadlift properly and a upper arm press. Both of these move I have struggled will cause no one really told me how to do them. I began to think that this was going to be easy. Please remember that this was not the workout.
The workout for today was this.
10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 reps of deadlifts
10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 reps of upper arm presses
After doing 10 of each you would do 9 and then 8 and you get it.
I had to put the bar down at one point cause I could not keep my form on the deadlift halfway through. Then I picked up the bar and pumped it out finishing in 7:55. Oh and I forgot to say we were being timed on this workout to.
All and all it was a great work out. After finishing and catching my breath, Jared taught me some more stretches and then I was done. I like working out there and can’t wait till Fridays workout to see what is next.
