I was originally planning on going into the gym today, but for various reasons, I worked out in the garage instead. This was a modified workout from CrossFit.com.

15-minute AMRAP:

  • 20 PVC Sit-ups
  • 20 Turkish Get-ups (50#)
  • 20 PVC Sit-ups
  • 10/10 OH Walking Lunges (50#)

Result: 1+21

AMRAP is a bit misleading here! I only managed to get just over one round. I ended up subbing in PVC sit-ups in place of the weighted sit-ups because I felt like I was using too much momentum while holding the dumbbell.

For an accessory piece, I completed 60 alternating pistols not for time. Felt good! Wore my Reebok Nanos without any issues (usually would’ve switched to lifters to make it easier).

Didn’t feel too bad today. Last time we did pause front squats, I did a set of 2 at 205 with a 3 second pause at the bottom so today wasn’t a major improvement. It didn’t feel really smooth though.


11 min AMRAP:

4 Muscle-ups
6 Turkish Getup (53#)
20 Bodyweight Squats

Result: 1+2

First WOD doing ring muscle-ups! I made it through the first set pretty easily. I rested around :20 between each muscle-up. Turkish getups were straight through 3 on each side. The second set of muscle-ups stumped me. I did the first one without a problem. Then, I failed 4 times before the second complete rep (resting :30 each time around). I was getting plenty high, but I would fall out in the catch position. I finally got a second one with roughly 90 seconds left in the WOD and couldn’t get another. I felt a bit bummed to get so few reps in on this WOD, but I did get a lot of practice in on muscle-ups.
