Yesterday’s CrossFit Battle

pull-up_med-ball The workout: 3 rounds for time:

Round 1: 21 kipping pull-ups, 21 box jumps, 21 push presses
Round 2: 15 kipping pull-ups, 15 box jumps, 15 push presses
Round 3: 9 kipping pull-ups, 9 box jumps, 9 push presses

(Push press is where you push the bar from your shoulders over your head. Girls @ 75# / Boys @115 for this workout).

The noon class was huge yesterday, at least 15 people. I battled out this workout with a very strong girl named Elizabeth. She got a good head start on me with the pull ups but I caught up on the box jumps. We were neck and neck and pushing each other to work harder…. and harder… and harder… In the end, she beat me by 1 second. Grrr. As we both crawled across the gym floor reaching for our water bottles Elizabeth turned to me and said “I don’t want to have you in my class anymore.”  Ha ha ha!  Our times?  6:40 and 6:41.  Not too shabby.
