This was our final week of the 12-Week Strength Training Program and my first week back from a 10-day vacation – See Results here – 12-Week Strength Program Results
I didn’t take it easy, however, and pushed myself through 6 straight days of workouts to get me back on track. My body was beat come Sunday but I felt really good and it was a nice “off” day to relax a bit. Here’s a peak at the workouts I went through this week:
I had a lot of fun this week with some of the workouts and really enjoyed the team workout on the 4th of July called “DT”. It was pretty brutal and definitely pushed me to the max to finish!
One thing I learned, again, this week is to find the edge of your comfort zone and try to push past it just a little to see what could happen. On Friday, we had a 10-minute Row for max calories and my goal was to have more than anyone that day in the class. Sure enough, after pushing through some pain near the end I ended up with 162 and the most for the day. Those little wins keep you focused on growing and building on each and every day’s workout.
Lastly, I am going to be starting Yoga again this week as I hadn’t done it at all during this Crossfit journey. I’ve realized I need to get my flexibility back which I know will help me improve my movements. This will be part of my training going forward and look forward to seeing the results as it runs parallel with CrossFit.
Keep grinding everyone!
