6 pm-WoD – Cape CrossFit’s first 2011-Challenge, ”Graceful Cindy”:
(Goal: <7 min, Shame Level: >10 min, Dream level: <5 min).
- 2-4-6-8-10 C&J’s @ 135lbs/61kg
- 1 Round of Cindy in between each set
5 Pull Ups, 10 Push Ups, 15 Air Squats
Time: 7’12 min.
Ouuuuchh, this was so much harder than I expected. Compared to the other version I did with Michael in December, this was actually thougher. Even though that one contains 10 rounds and 20lbs heavier C&J’s, guess it’s the way you can increase the power output here by just going as fast as you can, wich I did. Felt so strong for 3 rounds, then all of a sudden it felt like there was 100kg slamming down on me every time I cleaned the bar. Not heavy to get it up to the shoulders, not heavy to get it over head, just damn uncomfortable to have it on the shoulders. Anyway, sticked through it pretty good and I’m pretty ok with my time. Surely aiming for sub 6 when we re-do this however, should definately be strong enough to get at least the eight round unbroken by then.
These challenges are so much fun! The way all the members get together before the class, talking tactics and expectations, the way we push each other on during and the way we try to pick each other up after getting totally smashed by just giving it our all, is undescribable. Another reason to why I shoulda, woulda, coulda get more classes in my programming I guess.
Looking at the video, I can see that my hip is a bit low in my PshU’s. Definately not out of weakness, (they were the easiest part of the wod), think I’ve just got lazy with ROM in the basic excercises lately. Will probably get a chance to ”perfect” those PshU’s tomorrow when Jobst has a fun looking metcon in store for us…
