Hard to believe that it has been a full week since my last workout! I feel drastically different than I did after last week's WOD. I have spent the last week trying to eat better for the last week, and I have started taking some all natural supplements to help me with metabolism, focus, etc.
Tonight I went back to workout, and I was so excited/scared to be back in the box. The classes are growing, which makes it tough because i was a little lost and stuff. But it all worked out well in the long run.
Warm-UP, 30 seconds each of: Overhead squats w/PVC, Push Press w/Plate, Dead Hang, lunges.
WOD 1: 5 rounds for time
5 Snatches (RX was 75, I did 70 since I couldn't get ahold of a 45# bar)
Took me 8:39 to finish (There was a 10 minute cap). I may have done 6 rounds, I'm not sure. I lost count somewhere along the way, so I wanted to be sure to get in at least 5, figured it was better to do more than requested, than to cut out early and do less.
Wod 2: Every minute, on the minute, do 3 push-presses. I used 70# again for the first few rounds, then went up to 80, and the last 4 rounds, I bumped it up to 85. This was a TOUGH workout for sure!
Then for our strength/skill, we did upper and lower abs. I have never done these kind of sit-ups and trust me when I tell you, movement at work tomorrow might be funny to watch. We did 3 sets of 10 sit-ups with the bar. The first 3 sets were done in a bench press type of motion. Then we did 2 sets of 10 sit-ups with the bar. Arms above our heads, locked out at about 45* angle with the floor. Keep arms locked, and don't use them for leverage. This stuff really HURT!
I asked afterward because when I do get-ups and sit-ups, etc, I have pain in my hip flexors. I guess this is somewhat normal from using them more than abs due to size and lack of flexibility. I am still getting and moving much, MUCH better than I have in years.
My exciting moment of the day was when Suzanne said she didn't recognize me at first. I know the biggest part of that is that I got all my hair cut off, but she also told me how amazing I looked, which was really exciting. I am starting to see and feel changes in my body, and I can't WAIT for things to really move.
