Week 7 was a short week for me based on travel to Tennessee later in the week. (Unfortunately, I didn’t get to go to Mayhem and workout with Rich Froning.)
One of the cool things we did one of the nights was a team workout that was really fun.
We split up into groups of 5 and did 3 rounds.
AMRAP for the first 5 minutes – Pushups
AMRAP for the next 7 minutes – Wall Balls
AMRAP for the final 5 minutes – Pushups
It was intense but cool to be a part of that. Here’s why: You get the opportunity to not only meet some new people but compare yourself in how you are doing with the movements and are you doing them properly. Plus, the more experiences CrossFitters are extremely helpful to coach on improving technique so you can continue to grow.
Was only able to do 3 classes from Monday-Wednesday but the 4 day break was actually a good things as my body needed to recover after 7 hard weeks of this new fitness routine.
One of the important lessons I’ve learned over time was that REST is so key. You have to give your body time to recover. Remember that as you push through your fitness goals and it will help you actually make gains much quicker and prevent injury.
Excited to get into the grind more next week as I hit my 2 month anniversary!
