a Wedensday workout

I normally work out at studio 831 on a Tuesday and Thursday, but since my trainer over slept ūüėõ yesterday, we rescheduled for this morning. Warmup: 500 meter row leg kicks, kick your leg fore and aft 20 times leg side kicks, kick your leg left and right 20 times 5 inchworm push ups AMRAP:…

my new challenge. olympic lifting.

and why I suck at it. Lately my trainer and I have been working on lifting at studio 831. ¬†This has been very difficult for me due to injuries that I sustained in an accident in the fall of 2007. Anyhow, I started cross fit training in part to address the injuries I sustained in…
