Today I rocked up and was surprised to see Alex was treading the boards teaching I think his first classes or at least he had only done a few before this.
He had choosen to work us hard with a medley of mini WODs.
Even the warm up seems like a WOD although he kept saying “don’t go too hard on the warm up” at Crossfit that can sometimes be a hard thing!
He did however before I jump to the fun bit have us loosening up with a spot of mobility.
In preparation for the WOD his warm up consisted of Power Cleans and Push ups. I did mine as standard these days off a box.
The weight for the warm up was the same as the WOD, 25Kg. I guess to get us used to the weight before hand.
The rep range for the warm up was a soft ladder of 2-4-6-8-6-4-2. Sweet!
Next for the bit I had been dreading……….
A WOD of 3 parts.
Each part was a 5 minute AMRAP
10 Kettlebell swings and 10 box jumps (step ups)
2 minute rest
10 Thrusters and 10 Sumo-deadlift high pulls
2 minute rest
10 Push press and 10 burpees (push ups and step up for me)
I hated this one!!! Sorry Steve it’s not my fave.
The thing is and I think I mentioned this last time but doing 5 minutes, stopping then changing to a completely different exercise really throws me.
Oh and on top of that it turned out to be quite a humid day!
