I am feeling absolutely amazing today. Rolled out of bed and showed up for my Crossfit class super-sleepy. A jog around the block woke me up, more or less. The warm-up would have killed me a few weeks ago. How do you like this:
10 x pullups (I use a kind of a rubber band to reduce the weight i am lifting - but today was the first day I was able to do all pullups with no stops or fails)
10 x kettle pushups (pushups while holding to "kettle weights" instead of the floor - just different muscles, I suppose)
10 x PVC overhead squats(squats don't sound bad till you try to do them right)
all that three times = warm-up.
And then today was my first back squats day: real bar on my shoulders, full squats. I am super-conservative any time my back is involved and I could do much more than I was, but it was totally amazing. This little Brazilian girl maxed out at 170lb! I did 53... sad, eh? But when they made me go all the way down into a squat, things still got complicated nonetheless!
After that - a long cash-out, lots of bends and twists with a light barbell on my shoulders. I feel glorious!
