Crossfit Week 1: Upper body + abs + cardio

So I decided I wanted to record my week 1 session. Probably wont remember all of it seeing as it was 13 days ago, but we’ll see.

Routine was:
Warm up
* Tun laps around the grass area for about 10min. Every two laps stop for 10 pushups and 10 squats.

Circuit:
10 stations. First round 30secs, second round 40secs. 10 situps between each station.
This is the order that I did it in:
* Kettle ball lift up (Left). Ball between legs and lift and flick then push over head;
* Mallet on Tyre: hit a mallet on a truck tyre;
* Medicine ball pushups: pushups on a medicine ball. I couldn’t actually do any so I struggled with normal pushups;
* Row lift: weight bar and stand and pull it up, rowing fashion
* Rope flick: thick ass boat rope around a tree and had to flick it, like a towel;
* Standing chest press: push a weight bar overhead in a flick fashion;
* Burpees;
* Pushups with Weights: hold two dumbbells, do pushup then pull up weight. Repeat each arm;
* Kettle ball lift up (right);
* Tyre Flip: Lift and flip a 6ft tyre. I managed twice in 30sec and 4 time in 40sec run.

… and ended up with a very sore and dead downy.

As you can tell I have NFI about the exercise names so feel free to correct me!

Crossfit Week 2: Lower Body + Abs + Cardio

So I’ve decided to add a crossfire class to my training regime.

So for crossfit I’m giving myself a sort of 4 week trial and ties in well as the gym I go to have just started 4 rotation of classes. I’m not even sure how true this is “real” crossfire. The class is called “MaxXfit” but its killing me so it must be working!

85kg by 35: Getting Started (Part 1)

One of the reason I created this blog in the first place was to stick all my #85by35 tweets in it. As it turns out there isn’t many/any good plugins for WordPress that do this so it’s become like all my other blogs§ .. a ghost town, til now!

Anyway, I wanted to post about the progress with my new ‘get fit regime’ that I’ve called #85by35. Honestly, I didn’t except it to go the way it has and it’s a good thing it has!

I originally was typing this out as a single big post but got de-motivated half way through so now I’ll publish them in smaller chunks!
