Man-maker Monday, Man
Full disclosure: I totally cocooned this weekend.
Number of workouts blown off since last Thursday: 3
Moments of regret about those missed workouts: 0
I’m finally rested!
I spent the weekend shopping for dino-chow and cooking, then yesterday afternoon I put together a new training schedule. I also spent copious amounts of time with my noggin in contact with my pillow (the noggin which still bears a tender bump from last Monday’s barbell adventures), and watched eight episodes of CIS. I like the new ones with Lawrence Fishburne!
This morning, it was time to hit it hard again. Dave found a video on YouTube called “Manmaker Monday” that he liked, and we were off and running…
- 5 man-makers
- 400m run
My time: 25:12
The man-makers in the video on YouTube added two lunges to the end of the sequence, so we did, too. Our man-makers looked like this:
renegade row + squat clean + thruster + 2 lunges
I never imagined that two itty-bitty lunges would be such a royal pain in the a**. They were awful. But – yay! – for the first time ever, I used 20-lbs. dumbbells for the man-makers. Not too bad.
Tomorrow: CrossFit Women with Crystal. It’s good to be back.

If only it were that easy to "make a man"..:)
That's a fun idea… "Every time you do a man-maker, a hunk appears"… like this:
