We had several birthdays in class this week. So Thursday was a brutal workout, Dirty Thirty followed by cupcakes.
Friday was a very different workout. All running, front and back, and I wasn't prepared for how tough it was.
Saturday Group Class: A first time with several of these folks! It was a tough one, too many burpees, and the first time I honestly thought I was gonna barf.
And we are caught up. My body is still a little bit weary from last week and the crazy intense 6 days. I was not sure how much I was gonna be able to do today. I knew I was gonna give it my all but wish I had taken another day or a few more hours of rest in there somewhere. None the less I was off to class this morning. I was a little bit late but just happened to be the first one there. It started off a really small class but people trickled in and we ended up with 4 women and one really hard workout.
So I saw the workout today was less Shoulders (last week was wicked with shoulder work) and back to squat work. They have been doing a squat thing for a while, before I started coming to class so I have just been working in to the routine of it all. I maxed out my first week at 135lbs. I was pleased with that weight but in the last 4 weeks I was pretty sure I could do more than that. So today we were working up to our max. Since I came in late on this deal he let me push to my max again even though the rest were just doing 100%. I was able to better my back squat by 20lbs. A new MAX this morning of 155. ILL TAKE IT!!!
Then we did our WOD. It was Dead Lifts, Burpees with a Pull Up, Kettle Bell Swings, and a 250m Row. I like all the aspects of this workout except the Burpees, I have a new found hatred for Burpees.
I took a picture of my station to have a picture for the blog but luckily I have met my picture taking match. The teach likes to have pics for his blog so he takes even more than me. So when he saw me taking a pic of my area he grabbed my phone and took pics of me working out so I could post them.
<=== this was my sorry excuse for a photo....
These were his photos....
This was the entire workout in 4 pictures.
Once done we were ranked on how many rounds we were able to complete in 20 minutes and I was the winner so I got to stand on the Gold Medal spot of the boxes. ha! It was great fun! Yet another picture....
I made a special request that when MY birthday finally rolls around that we will not have to do Buprees! For the love, no more Burpees!!!!
Already ready for tomorrow!
