Wednesday was handstands. I did well with a wall and a spotter. Even rolled out of a few with a spotter.
Our WOD was ridiculous.
20 handstand push-ups*
400m farmers carry
I finished in 12:30. Super proud of this time. 50 burpees!?!?!? That was my initial reaction. And then I realized that farmer's carry was the worst of all movements. Wait, who am I kidding? It was all tough.
*yes these were scaled. Let me explain this modification to you. We used boxes, yes those used in box jumps. And were in a handstand while our feet were on the top. I drew this picture for you. I'm no artist. Your body makes an upside down V and you make a tripod with your head as you go down into the push up. It's hard.
Friday was rope climb. Fun!
Our coach showed us a few ways to climb the rope, mostly with our legs and one with our arms. I did manage to climb the rope twice. And we reviewed handstands. I'm feeling comfortable actually staying in a handstand (with a spot, of course).
10 single-arm overhead squat (5 each)
15 kettlebell swing
20 ABMAT sit-up
I practiced the OH squat with 20# and was fine on the right side. My left side, however, I couldn't hold overhead while squatting. My left shoulder is so tight (need a massage) that I had to go down to 10# for the WOD.
The WOD was still tough and I felt as though it was never ending. I finished in 11:27.
Now it's time to shower and heat my shoulder. And book a massage. Happy Friday!
