WOD: AMRAP (As Many Reps as Possible)
I think it was called “The Rockaway,” but I forgot to write it down!
- 5 minutes Handstand Push-Ups: I scaled to doing slow and controlled, full-range handstand push-up negatives, and one long hold in a handstand for the last 45seconds.
- 4 minutes Air Squats
- 3 minutes Push-Ups: this is SO IMPORTANT for everyone to watch a video on proper push-up form. I almost never see people go all the way chest-to-deck. I will do a full write up on this at some point.
- 2 minutes Kettlebell Swings: first time doing KB swings full-range since tweaking my back a month or so back!
- 1 minute Pull-Ups
Looks easy enough, right? WROOOOONG. Man, by the end of the first 5 minutes my shoulders were completely SHOT from the HSPUs. The air squats were a welcome “active rest” period, the push-ups were completely awful due to the HSPUs previously, the KB swings were great and I felt very strong using my hips as the driving force, and the pull-ups just about killed me. For the HSPUs, as I previously stated, I went to negatives and a hold. HSPUs: 25 + one 45 second handstand hold, air squats: 105, push-ups: 15 strict + 35 knees when form failed, for total of 50, kettlebell swings with 12kg/24lb: 48, pull-ups: a good ol’ whoppin’ 6, but they were unassisted.
So, how do you run a total for this? I guess adding everything without the hold, my total was 234. It was a quick, 15min workout that completely rocked my shoulders and quads. Pretty great! Tomorrow is Crossfit Carteret’s open house, and I’m hoping I’ll be participating in some of the demo-WODs that they’ll be doing throughout the early afternoon. I love working out with them so much! Sad to leave on Sunday!!
