What a strange day it’s been…
Woke up and went to our first Crossfit NYC workout. I thought I would just be handling the stopwatch and making useful commments like, “Keep your heels down”, “gut it out!”, “Get some!”, “3 more, don’t quit!” But somehow found myself agreeing to do B2B Tabata squats at David Wood’s suggestion. In the future I will ignore David Wood and anything he suggests.
Then of course I grabbed some 35# dumbbells for the Deadlift/Pushpress-a-thon. But realized that would be far too light for the deadlifts so I grabbed some 55# for those. Now we were ready to go. After my first 21 deadlifts, I was wondering how I got stuck doing this and Norma got to go around and tell people to keep there heels down. Seems unfair.
Got to turn people upside down for handstand practice then banged out a 26 second L-sit.
I don’t why I didn’t stop there but I suddenly remembered Alvaro Romano was in town doing a Ginnastica Natural seminar. It’s a movement system that incorporates, jiu-jitsu movements, yoga, animal forms and other weirdness. It is sort of like Scott Sonnen’s body flow stuff if you’ve seen that. Anyway, two hours of that and I was a sweaty mess.
Now it’s time for a nap. Can’t wait for the next Crossfit Gettogether.
