WOD: 26 October
Tuesday: More Burpees. Really.
First, let me be clear: Crossfit trainers aren’t evil, and we don’t plot the downfall and destruction of our athletes.
Except when we do.
Monday night’s class had a fun time with burpees and strict presses. It would be considered mean and somewhat cruel and unusual if the next workout also included pressing and burpees. So obviously I did, with push press and burpee tuck jumps. I do have a nasty habit of setting high standards for simple movements, so for the Burpee I required a full range push up with chest to the floor, and then a very high tuck jump on the way up. Tuck jumps are fun. Burpees are fun. Burpee tuck jumps are the logical follow up.
The WOD didn’t look bad on paper. Everyone had to use the same weight, people who could press 20KG easily had to maintain a high power output throughout, and anyone who couldn’t had to lift 20KG.
Either way, it was a lot of fun.
10 rounds for time
5 Strict Pull ups
5 20KG Thrusters
5 Burpee Tuck Jumps
15 min cut off.
The after party was 20 wall bags and muscle up practice.
Now. If I were a betting man (which I’m not.), and I had a somewhat sadistic trainer (which I’m not either. No matter what anyone says.) who made me practice wall bags regularly. I would start to think that MAYBE there might be a reason.
But that’s just me.
See you all next week.
