If only a catchy song could take away the pain of swings. Lots and lots of swings! (225, to be exact)
Listen to the All-American Rejects “Swing, Swing” while I tell you about this morning’s Bootcamp.
5X (1:00 rest), 4X (:45), 3X (:30), 2X (:15), 1X of the following
- 10 walking lunges, 10-lbs. dumbbells overhead
- 15 swings, both dumbbells
- 15 Russian twist+overhead tap, 8-lb. ball
- 15 box jumps
- 3X spring up+down stone staircase
Oh! the swings. SO hard. I did a few reps with 15-lb. dumbbells, but they’re still a little too heavy for the Frankenneck. My friends keep telling me to “take it easy” for the month of December, so I’m trying to find a balance between my desire to go all out and my post-surgery abilities.
I think my favorite part of the morning was the box jumps into stair running. I felt really strong and free… wheeeeee!
Then we had to give an I Am CrossFit testimonial to the video camera. My hair was a sweaty mess, and I was completely sans makeup, so I’m not too excited to see how I look. I am, however, proud to be CrossFit.
“I am CrossFit because I never cheat, and I never quit.”
