So May 7th and 9th were my 7th and 8th session with Coach.
Half way through our 16 sessions and my FIRST RX WORKOUT! Whoopwhoop!! I did the entire workout as prescribed…no scaling it down! So – I have accomplished one of my goals…I love that feeling. 🙂
The running left me huffing and puffing. Getting 1/2 by body weight over my head was tough, too. Oh, and the burpees were exhausting.
This was a fantastic test of my stamina, mental capacity and desire to live.
I was shooting for 88 reps (3 full rounds) but the Ground->Overheads were s—l—o—w going. But another workout is in the books.
So this one was pretty ridic, too. Started with some overhead presses (OH Press). Trying to find my 2 rep max.
We found it. Putting a jerk on it, I could do 75#.

Then we turned to the WOD. You can read it for yourself above.
Box Jumps – I survived. Almost face planted near the end. My brain was faster than my feet.
Sumo Dead Lift High Pull – See a great little tutorial by clicking here.
Wall Balls – These were fun. Not. Still working on my altitude for these. I can get my 10# ball between the 8 and 10 foot marks. But mostly to the 8. See a good vs. bad tutorial here.
Then I went home and ate. A lot.
Honestly – I can say I l-o-v-e what these types of workout do for my body. I feel like I can conquer the world when I finish them.
Overall, would highly recommend this type of fitness routine to any and all Type A personalities who are results orientated, work well with goal setting, love checking off lists and relish in overall feelings of accomplishment.
