WOD Sunday February 27th: Come on. It’s not that bad.
Sunday morning, as opposed to Saturday’s Filthy Fifty crowd, is not the day to schedule anything too strenous. Last time I programmed filthy fifty I barely made it out of that class alive. I’ve come to accept that Sunday is not the day anyone is going to be pushing their limits.
But obviously I have to be mean about it. 😀
We started the day off with a really light warm up, again with squat prep (seeing a pattern yet?) and some basic regrips and KB swings to prep for the WOD.
The skill portion of the day involved refining proper bracing during the front squat. Something that everyone picked up rather quickly this time around. (Also, see a pattern?) Practice is paying off as everyone is gaining the ability to maintain tension and still breath normally. Well done.
A nice and easy triplet. Nothing to it. Except that it’s Sunday. Everyone then proceeds to groan and suffers through it like it was the worst thing they’d ever done. It’s really not that bad.
Unless, of course, you’re a little rough from the night before.
Not that anyone is or would be.
We finished off with some Turkish Get ups to see if and where people might have some issues, either with technique or generally with range of motion. We found a few things that needed to be fixed and with a little practice everyone should work out the kinks in the chain pretty quickly.
Well done on surviving without getting violently ill on the floor.
I appreciate it.
“Human Punching Bag.” To Colm. Who walked in from his rugby game and looked like he had been beaten by a professional with a bat. Impressive.
“Reluctant Badass.” To Cian. Who visibly hated me every second of today’s class but finished the WOD very quickly with a very respectable about of weight. Well done sir.
“Glorious Return.” To Katarina. For her glorious return to Crossfit after some time off. Very good power output because in her own words, “After time off, you can’t be lazy.”
