Meanwhile on the OTHER side of Connecticut Ave…
Workout: In groups of 3 to 4 with one person per station, complete as many reps as possible in a minute for each of the following stations:
DBs were used for the Thrusters. For the sit-ups, you hold the med-ball overhead during the movement but start out on your back holding the ball straight out in front of you.
The workout was done for a total of 5 rounds.
Post the loads to comments as usual!!
The remainder of the class was dedicated to some good ol’ fashion stretching.
***If you are planning on going to the Mid-Atlantic Qualifier either as a spectator or a competitor, let Tom or Steph know if you’d be interested in sharing a vacation home during that weekend. So far we have 7 people who would be open to doing that, but the more the merrier!***
Great work as always CFDC!
Due to traffic (and a late start), I was able to complete only three rounds.
I finally found my score sheet; here are my numbers:
Round 3 (my first round)
Thrusters (with a pair of 35# dumbbells): 12
Box jumps (with the 22″ box): 10
Sit-ups (with the 10# medicine ball): 20
DB Thrusters: 10
Box jumps: 13
DB Thrusters: 10
Box jumps: 13
All-in-all, it looked as if this was another “Killer Tuesday” workout. But…it was better than drinking mass quantities of beer for St. Patrick’s Day. 🙂
I noticed a lot of sweat (and felt the steam) as I walked in which only meant one thing…everybody did a great job! 🙂
CFDC’s own ODB is…ready for another tire-flipping Thursday with “Big Poppa” (of course).
@Maiko: I get your slight “dig” at Rob’s comment about being on the “cool” side of Connecticut Ave. 🙂
hehe, couldn’t resist! =P It sounded funny to me, like we’re on the wrong side of the train tracks LOL
Thrusters = 30#dbs
Box Jumps = uhm…it wasn’t the 24″ box and was definitely smaller. That’s all I know. I tried jumping once but felt like I was going to completely jump over the box so I stuck with step ups.
Sit-ups = 16# ball.
So Bryant, do you owe your friends drinks or not??
As last night proved, every once in a while, it’s good to “slum it” on the “other” side of Connecticut. For one, the gyms are better. Just watch yourself after dark. . . .
We were using 45# DBs, which about caused my legs to collapse because I had done squats the day before. That also caused me to use the “little” box – not sure how tall it was. But certainly a fun little workout.
I used the 12.5 dbs for each round…yay me. I also used the 12 lb mb. Its not bad for sit ups…I also used it for Thursday’s wall balls…so maybe I’ll stick with it.
I missed the warmup and it shows in my scores…I got better the more I worked out.
Glad Reggie, Gary and Ami made it to class too.
You know you love the “Other” side Rob! >=D
Rhonda I was wondering about your scores when I was putting them into the spreadsheet. That’s one hell of a warm-up! And nice to see you moving up in DB weight!!
So I came across this entry from CF West Santa Cruz on Thruster tips (through CFNY’s site). Thought I’d share!
Nice workout – the box jumps after the thrusters fried the legs. I teamed with Mark, Steve O., and Tom A. using 45# DBs, 30″ box, and 20# MedBall. Notched my first trip on the box as well – nothing compared to Alex (see Thursday, June 26, 2008 post), but embarrassing all the same. See ya Thursday.
@Rhonda: Awwwwww, thanks! 🙂
I used 30# dumbells and 16# medball. I was definitely pushing the limit with the 30# DBs. My form sucked. I heard Tom say to me at least 3 times use your more legs more. I was trying but couldn’t get my mind off the fact that the DBs felt soooooo damn heavy.
I did step-ups instead of box jumps.
Today I am not feeling so well so if I am not in class tomorrow you know it is because I am sick.
ugh, hope you feel better soon Sara!
