When the Sunday Blues are overshadowed by the excitement for your next week of training…
Well I knew I was doing this, but didn’t realize how much it was inhibiting me - not pulling my knees down enough to use my hips. Big dummy.
So Alex and I did our first official water wod together the other day and omg it was a blast. I never knew how intense swimming was! No joke, my body is still hurting. It was such a good workout though- I can’t wait to go back!!!
You guys look awesome!
Holy 6-pack lady. Jealouuusss.

PR day! Since starting this 10 week I have added 40 pounds to my squat, 20 pounds to my deadlift (no PR today though) and 15 to my bench.
Video is of my 275 squat.
My hardwork is paying off. Finally starting to get strong.
What a week lady! Awesome work. So strong.
Today’s dirty mess 😜
Partner WOD tire flips and grip nightmare
The dirt is real my friends. and the camera couldn’t even capture the half of it.
Today was set up for teams of three, but only Matt and I showed up for class, so coach adjusted the wod a little.
Part A: Max tire flips in 5:30. One works at a time. We got 62 flips with the 300# tire. We went 2 for 2. I started and ended so I did 32.
Rest for not long enough and then do -
Part B: 5 RFT
1. 10 goblet reverse lunges & 10 KBS
2. Pull-up hang
3. 10 burpees
Rotate through. Matt started at 1, and I started at 2. When at 2 you have to hang until your partner completes their reps. (Torture. Goodbye forearms.)
13:29 RXd 53# kb for me, 45# for Matt
POST: 10 min row at about 10% intensity lol
I nailed my quad during a tire flip. It’s going to be beyond black and blue tomorrow. Needless to say this whole workout smoked me.
Solid day of training yesterday.
10 min EMOM
Struggle bus for real. 4-3-3-3-3 RXd then 2-2-3-3-4 with one mat because I started failing.
3 rounds nft
8 RDL 95#
8 barbell bent over rows 95#
8 good mornings 45#
Rest :30 between movements and 2-3 minutes between rounds.
I was going to keep 95# for all but then quickly realized good mornings were not happening at that weight.
WOD: (with the hubs)
2 15’ rope climbs
Rope climbs have never been so good. I was gripping like nobody’s business. For the first few rounds I was getting up there in 2.5 pulls. The last 2 rounds it was 3 pulls. Chris finished at 10:24. It was a good race.

Whether it’s muscle ups, double unders, or box jumps, we all have things we want to get better at. Put in the work, and you’ll see the progress. There’s always more work to be done.
