After my baseball guys Friday evening, I will be headed on down to Charlottesville, VA to relax and prepare for my first CrossFit competition at CrossFit Charlottesville. I was turned on to this one from my buddies at CrossFit DC, a good collection of them are going down as well; I am sure this will end up being an awesome time.
1500 meter row -
I am so pumped up about this and expect to finish it sub-5 minutes which I assume is a pretty good time. I have always liked rowing and I know with the added competition I will be able to push that much harder. I just plan on going all out, ALL out.
3 minutes max reps deadlifts with 289# -
Hell yes again! Trans-Continental #4 was a max reps deadlift with 315# and I got 15 reps and felt like I took it easy. I expect to get at least 55 reps. I know that is a lot, but I know I should be able to bang out 15-20 reps unbroken with this weight, and I know that with the recovery after the row I will be pretty fresh.
For time: 50 burpees, 25 thruster 111#, 25 handstand push ups -
Crap. Burpees, fine, sweet, feel great about that. Trusters at 111#, absolutely awesome, feel very, very good about that. Handstand push ups. Well. I CAN'T DO THEM! No clue what to do on this one. Guess I really have to step it up on the first two.
3 rounds for time: 50 double unders, 30 box jumps (32in.), 50 double unders, 15 hang snatches (111#) -
So, if I make the top 5 men after the first WOD's, I will be qualified to join the fun for this last one. I would love to get to this one because I really feel confident about this one. I enjoy double unders (if I can get that rhythm), I absolutely love box jumps, and hang snatches with that weight I feel I could bang out pretty quick.
Well folks, pretty pumped up. Nervous as hell about the handstand push ups, but I guess my only option is to just go crazy with the first two WOD's and hope for the best. You never know, maybe I will just turn something on and be able to get through them. Either way, I am super excited to get down there and hang with a bunch of fitness nuts and pick people's brains, I like nothing more than hanging out with people who share my passion for fitness, so, I know this will be a great time.
I will be posting all along, so, keep checking out the blog!
Never Stop, GET FIT.
