Our gym is filled with all kinds of equipment, some of the things you may have been at other gyms and other things you may have never seen before. There are endless workout combinations that can be created which means there are lots of new experiences to be had in a CrossFit class. I have a sneaking suspicion that many people in our gym never thought they would use a barbell in their training regimen, but there it is in use almost every day in some form at 818. Working out in a group setting that is filled with competition and encouragement? Yeah, that was probably unexpected too. The fun part about working out like this is the constant stream of new things to do. Sure, you squat, deadlift and press often enough, but you do them in different capacities and they play into PRs and help you conquer all kinds of workouts. Master the basics, attack your weaknesses and surprise yourself by doing something you thought you'd never do!
One of Emily's first pull-ups, and yes it really did look like this!!
A. Every 2.5 minutes for 6 rounds:
3 snatch grip deadlift + 3 hang power snatch + 3 overhead squats
*work up to a heavy set
B. For time:
"Choose your own Adventure"
75 wall balls
*complete the workout in the order and rep scheme of your choosing
