I found this wonderful image on Pinterest and I just had to share it with you!
8-30-13 Workout Of The Day SWOD: 8 Minutes to build to first set of the following: SDLHP 3, 3, 3 @ Med to heavy weight WOD: For Time: 20 Back Squats 30 Chest 2 Bar Pull Ups 40 Burpees
Spent! Wiped Out! Sore! Today was day 5 of CrossFit for me. Why? Because I could so I did. LOL! I contemplated not going today, but my friend Tee wanted to go. We did the 8:30 a.m. class because I had back-to-school shopping to do. Nope! Not what you think. The shopping was for mommy dearest and I had a blast.
Let me back up for minute. You must know by now that I live for an intense workout. Since I return to my regular grind next week, I just had to get my last morning session in and that is the real reason why I pushed myself to go today.
My friend Tee pushes me to go harder. While doing SDLHP (Sumo-Deadlift-High-Pull) I know.. .what the heck is that? I said the same thing when I looked at the board. While writing this post, I couldn’t remember what the acronym meant, so I had to look it up.
Anyway, Tee pushed me on the SDLHP’s. I thought my max was 55 pounds, but she pushed me to 77! Do I feel it now? Yeees! Her new name is “Sarge” because she ORDERS me to put more weights on, she never asks my opinion.
This is why it helps to have a dedicated partner and friend to workout with. I push her when we run, and she pushes me at CrossFit. If you don’t have a partner, find one; it will make a huge difference in your daily routine, especially on the days when you don’t feel like working out.
Okay it is late, I’m tired and must get some sleep. It’s a holiday weekend and I plan to rest.
Enjoy your weekend!
