I went swimming again a few times this weekend. I worked on upping the number of lengths I do in the breast stroke. I passed the husband again which made him switch from the breast stroke to freestyle to go lots faster. Good thing we aren’t competitive.
The 12 days of Christmas workout:
- 1 rope climb or 2 pull to stands
- 2 burpees
- 3 handstand push ups or 6 pikes
- 4 thrusters – bar at chin, squat and then stand and push bar overhead
- 5 chest to bar pull ups or body rows
- 6 russian twists with a 25 lb plate
- 7 kettle bell swings
- 8 toes to bar
- 9 wall balls
- 10 calorie row
- 11 kettle bell halos
- 12 deadlifts
When I looked at that I wondered why they were being so nice to us. That’s nothing. I mean, this is Crossfit. We never ever EVER do only two burpees. Then I got worried.
Turns out that the workout is done like the freakin’ song. So it really goes – 1 rope climb – 2 burpees and 1 rope climb – 3 handstand push ups, 2 burpees and 1 rope climb – 4 thrusters, 3 handstand push ups, 2 burpees and 1 rope climb – etc.
I got to the 12th round in the 30 minutes allowed. I was on the row.
