Help St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital

Have you heard about CrossFit for Hope (link to my main blog)? I’m going to do the workout and try to raise some money. If you’d like to help out a great cause, head over to my profile to make a donation or pledge. Thanks!

I’ve been meaning to start hitting up the 9am class and finally made it in today. As the temperature rises and we get more humidity it’s going to be better than working out at 4:15pm or 5:30pm. The box is really growing and it seems like every class I attend has at least 10 people. It’s great to see people getting serious about their health!

Warm-up

30 reps of each with a 20# MB

  • Snatches
  • Russian Twists
  • Push-ups
  • Shoulder Presses
  • V-ups
  • Plyo Chest Presses
  • Front Squats

I finished in 10:25.

WOD

5 rounds (35:00 time limit)

  • 50 DB Step-ups (25 each leg)
  • 21 Push Presses
  • 400m Run

I used an 18″ box for the step-ups and used 40# DBs for both the step-ups and the push presses. I was really worried the push presses would get too heavy with so many reps, but I actually got better as the rounds went on. It’s all about the leg drive to get those DBs moving up. I completed 4 rounds plus 8 step-ups before time ran out. Feeling good!
