Sunday’s workout came courtesy of Leo who is out in CA having the time of his life getting paid to do CrossFit! He is serving in the US Navy, with the goal of becoming a SEAL, and is waiting for his BUDs class to start. In the meantime he wrote that everyone there is doing CrossFit. He sent in this workout that they did the other day, and noted that half of his class puked on the second round. We stuck with 2 rounds for the class, while Leo did 3. Here’s what happened.
Focused on form at the expense of weight, so we really didn’t push the limits. Ami still managed to pull 185 lbs for five reps!
Workout: 2x through Chaos Style (start anywhere, keep going)
No groups. Pick whatever exercise you want to start with and follow that order (Chaos Style).
Thanks for holding Tom!
(a note from Tom on the workout)
Great work by everyone who survived that one. Part of the motivation to put the class through that workout came on Saturday, when I received the email from Leo. If you remember him, when he showed up saying he was going to be a SEAL, we “tested” him out. In other words, I turned him over to Russ, who tried to break him down. Russ put him through Diane (21-15-9 deadlifts and HSPU), Cindy (5 pullups, 10 pushups, 15 squats for 20 minutes), and a series of sprints, lunges and bearcrawls. This was all in one session, and Leo was up for more. He was grinning because he knew what was going on. Russ was a bit shocked, but reported back his legit status.
So, I went for Jiu-Jitsu on Saturday, got to the gym early, but was not feeling very motivated to train. Checked my email, and there was the message from Leo. Just the motivation I needed, and a workout of all the stuff I least like. perfect. Knocked off 2 rounds before the class, and was happy to feel miserable doing it.
