Strength Day WOD

I woke up with a sore throat but I am hoping to keep it at bay so it doesn’t get any worse. Ttoday was a Coach Jerry day, so I had to make it. I have been having some restless sleeping nights lately. Not sure if its because of what I have been eating lately or stress. Either way, it sucks.

One of the girls at CrossFit started Paleo 2 weeks ago and you can already see a huge difference. She has lost 9lbs and said she no longer has heartburn, something she has dealt with for a long time. What better proof does one need than actual real people trying a new approach to eating. She says she feels great too.

Warmup
800m run
5 push ups
10 Pass Thrus
5 push ups
10 good mornings
5 Push ups
10 trunk rotations
5 Push ups
10 arm/hand mobility

Skill
Air squats

WOD
Front Squat 5-5-5-5-5
Five sets of five reps of front squat.
Total: 75 lbs, 95 lbs, 115 lbs, 125 lbs, and 135 lbs

The last set should be done to failure –meaning you can’t lift it for the full 5. I under estimated so while 135 was heavy, it was not failure so I should have gone 5-10lbs heavier. Before I left, I did some general stretching and a few hand stands. I just love handstands!
