Mucho gusto! CrossFit #6

Wednesday, 2012-04-25

Today I completed CrossFit session numero seis (6). It was a really good workout, and I had to stop several times to catch my breath; only a few belches tonight.

Stretched out and warmed up a little.

Jump rope: (55) total, with errors at #7 and #19, then continuous to (55).
Running "laps" (3x) end-to-end-to-end on the racquetball court, Bounding, Knee-ups, Reverse Butt-kickers.

Push-ups: 3x (10)reps.
Sit-ups (straight-leg): 3x (10)reps.
Planks (toes and elbows): 3x (20)+ sec.

Weight-carry: Walk about (50) ft. there, then return, carrying 2x (35)lb. dumb-bells.
Leg Press: 3x (10)reps. @ (180)+lbs. [180 lbs. or weights, plus whatever the press foot-plate weighs.]
Dips: Hold myself in place for (20)+ sec. 3x. [I couldn't actually push myself up, but was able to jump up and hold.]

Thrusters: (5) reps, then 2x (10)reps. w/ (2) (15)lb. dumb-bells. [Thrusters: Squat with dumb-bells on shoulders, then press the 'bells at the top of the squat; repeat.]

I used the pool for about (20) minutes tonight, which is the first time I have used it since I started at this gym over a year ago. The Speedo swim goggles I bought did not seem to be nearly as water-tight as expected; I may have to return them. I will try using the pool again, tomorrow, with another pair of dark-tinted goggles I bought (4) years ago, and see if those are any better. I mainly just laid on my back and kicked back and forth across the length of the pool. Then I spent some time just treading water with arms and legs in the deep end, and also practiced a survival float face-up with my back arched. I think that last bit might have made me dizzy, or maybe it was the motion in the pool making me nauseous.
