It’s Easter weekend, but we managed to squeeze in a team workout this weekend before the rest of the holiday madness hit us. Plus, we had beautiful weather – about 50 degrees with lots of sun and not a lot of wind.
AJ, Ev, and I headed in this morning and were joined by a bunch of folks – Drea was there leading the charge and we had Jimmy, Brent, Lara, Nick & Lisa, Reagan & Brian (Reagan’s Dad), Karen & Larry, Jonathan, and a few other folks. A fun crew as per usual.
Reagan was finishing up a workout involving GHDs and ring muscle-ups when we arrived – and she’s a beast. There’s no question she’s going to kick butt at CrossFit Games Regionals this year. 🙂
Jonathan and I were all set to team up, but as we started the warm-up, she wanted us to go in mixed pairs. So Jonathan and AJ worked together and Ev and I worked together, which was fine.
The warm-up was 2 rounds of:
- 200m run
- 30 seconds of jumping jacks
- 30 seconds of goblet squats (I used a 35# kettlebell)
And then we did some broad jumping across the gym floor. (Mine was more like a stuttering frog than anything else, but hey… I got a few in anyway.)
From there, it was just a matter of grabbing some equipment. We needed a plyo box and some space for handstand push-ups, and Ev grabbed a rower. Life was good. 🙂
The workout was:
- 20 min AMRAP, 2 person teams (male/female)
- 150m row/100m run
- 10 box jump overs 20″
- 10 handstand push-ups (10 hand release push-ups)
We decided to just alternate movements as long as we went through — so I started with the run (Yes, I volunteered – weird, isn’t it?), she did box step-overs, and I did 10 strict handstand push-ups to two abmats, then she rowed 150m, I did box jump overs, and she did push-ups. We just kept alternating that way through the whole thing.
There were a couple of rounds where she ran, but mostly Ev rowed and we just chugged on through. A few rounds in I started doing step overs instead of box jumps, but I kept up with the 100m runs and strict HSPUs for the duration, which made me happy. A few of my HSPUs might have been less than perfect, but I was glad to have the abmat beneath my head for the workout instead of the floor!
We definitely weren’t breaking any land speed records, but we got through 11 full rounds and into the 12th (150m row + 4 box step overs), so not too shabby. AJ & Jonathan made it through 16 rounds + 3, so they were moving fast.
I hope those folks who made it to Pick It Up for the Easter workout had a great time! We were just happy to get ONE workout in today. 🙂
Happy Easter folks and great work today!
