Two treats in two days...I must be lucky. Yesterday was a great time with an old friend, and today was a Wilson Park Workout before heading back to the daily grind or teaching. I got in a super workout that will leave me sore as I walk into my classroom again for the first time in two weeks. It has been a great winter break for me and my family to decompress a little and gear up for six months of hectic-ness. But I know we will survive!
CrossFit: Playing with Sand in the Snow at Wilson Park
Rep sets of 21, 15, and 9 of:
40# Sandbag Cleans
60# Bear-Hug Squats
Wall (Tree) Ball
*Thank you Coach Gio for working us through the sandbag cleans. I did cleans the previous day and learned the importance of creating pop by opening up the hips. Gio is always so good at correcting form. Once I got a hold of that, cleans with the sandbag really became efficient and effective. My least favorite of all of those movements = Bear-Hug Squats. Now I sort of know what it is like to be a firefighter. That's all I could picture in my mind was having to rescue a 60# person from a smokey room. I hope I never have to do that, but it makes you appreciate the work firefighters do.*Photo courtesy of Ross Training
