CrossFit Estes Park

I’m in Estes Park, CO for the week. Had a rest day yesterday while traveling, but was up and headed in to CrossFit Estes Park this morning at 7am for open gym. It’s 1.5 miles above sea level, so more training at altitude.

They seem to follow the main side programming most of the time, so it was “Fran” today. No thanks after doing it a week ago and being at altitude here. I did my own thing…

Warm-up

  • 1,000m Row (4:23)

Strength

Back Squat

  • 10×45#
  • 5×135#
  • 5×205#
  • 5×245#
  • 5×265#
  • 5×285#

Not sure why I got up there in weight so fast. Felt good, but didn’t want to push it and risk tweaking the back again, especially as a guest.

Conditioning

5 Rounds

  • 10 GHD Sit-ups
  • 10 Box Jumps (24″)

Figured I’d better stick to something short as I get used to the lack of oxygen. Took me 5:17.

  • 2,000m Row

Nice easy pace to do it in 9:04.
