Burpees are better than grasshoppers at least.

Happy Monday!!  (Again!?  WTF?!)  I figured since I've got a busy end of the week, the pool read-a-thon Monday tradition will have to be postponed again, and I went to the gym instead.

I saw this on IG and chuckled.

Today we worked on our one rep max for back squats and I ended at 123# and know I could have gone up if I had some more time!  So I felt pretty good about it!  Ben rocked a 240# and looked solid as usual.  I love lifting by him so he can watch all of my sets and give me extra pointers.

Strength:  Back Squat (1 RM)
Warm UP:
BB X 8
30%X 5
40% X 5

80% X 3
85% X 2
90%X 1

CrossFit Games Open 12.1 (AMRAP – Rounds and Reps)
Christy:  9+1
Ben:  9+8 (rx)

7-Minute AMRAP of:
Burpees to a 6″ target*

*I did modified burpees where you go down into a plank instead of hitting the ground.  
*To keep it low-impact, I also hit my hands to an overhead bar by going up on my toes instead of jumping to reach the taller bar 6" overhead.

7:00 minutes of burpees is no joke.  It's like the longest 7:00 minutes of life (actually racing a 5k is probably worse).  Plus baby's head is down and it is causing some pain and mobility issues and really makes me want to keep it low-impact (did somebody kick me in the crotch...).  

Overall I am feeling pretty good about today!  Hopefully your day was fab.

  • Today's time: 7:00

My brother went home today though, so boo.  He just graduated from BYU.  CONGRATS to him.
