First Team Workout at New Location

So after getting a couple of regular classes in at the new CrossFit Continuum location, it was time to get in a team WOD on Saturday. πŸ™‚

The whole Fitzy clan was there to work out with Coaches Isaac & Clare for this morning’s team extravaganza. We had a great turnout – Brianne, Deana, Monica, Kelli, Brent, the four of us, and a few others were there. Plus we had new member Xavier giving us a try. I think I heard Isaac say there were 11 of us.

Barbell_DeadliftWe started out with a new route for a warm-up run in the parking lot. A little flatter than before. Still hot today though – easily in the 80s already by the time we started. We then wandered back inside for some squat to stands and a few other movements to get loosened up a little.

And then we talked about the workout itself. Teams of 2 today.

  • 50 deadlifts (185/135# or scaled)
  • 60 chest-to-bar pull-ups (or scaled)
  • 70 cleans (185/135# or scaled)
  • 80 push-ups
  • 90 box jumps (or step-ups)
  • 100 wall balls
  • and then 71 partner-over-burpees as a cash out

Yes, it was another doozy of a workout – but hey, the pain is shared so it’s not as bad, right? ! HA!

PushupI worked with Xavier, who turned out to be another computer geek like myself. Today was his first ever crossfit workout and he was stuck with me. πŸ™‚ Poor guy! Clare and Isaac helped him out with the movements and we all helped him get through. It was a ton of reps and he kept chugging right along.

Towards the end – with the wall balls and the partner-over-burpees – we had help from Clare and Nancy who each did a bunch of reps. Thank goodness! They were awesome.

Even with their help it took about 45 minutes to get through the whole mess. Xavier did awesome. We did lighter weights – 135# deadlifts and 45# or 95# cleans. We did regular pull-ups instead of chest to bar. And we did 20″ step ups instead of box jumps. But we kept on moving!

Ev worked with the girls in a team of three and they did awesome. AJ jammed a finger at one point and they kept chugging through regardless.

Thanks Isaac & Clare for all the encouragement. And thanks Clare & Nancy for helping Xavier and I with the workout! It was VERY appreciated!

As you might have guessed. Everybody did awesome. πŸ™‚ That may be the endorphins talking. πŸ™‚

Hopefully Xavier will make it back for the foundations seminar tomorrow with Clare and we’ll see him again soon!

Have a great day folks!
