I have been doing CrossFit in some form for almost 2 years now....it has been a slow process for me - I have been injured and injured again....I focus and I try again....I am learning to be patient, something that I have to re-learn every day, like the HSPUs today.
At the moment I am training by myself with my coach long distance. He programs and I send videos and notes of the workouts and then I get feedback. Today was a feedback session. HSPU's were not up to par at all and needed to be addressed.I am learning everything from scratch....at least that is what is feels like......right now.
Today it was HSPU.
3 abmats (1 abmats and 2 red dots)
got all reps - not unbroken but got all.
2 abmats (1 abmat and one red dot)
got all reps
1 abmat - nothing.......!!!
about 10 tries.....
then another 5.....
floor - did one negative but did not get up.
I texted my coach and asked how to proceed.
max out on 2 pillows.
got 2 then 3 then 3
got back on 1 abmat
tried another 5 times.....
started on my head and got 1 !!!!!
did that 2 more times
so a total of 3 on 1 abmat....PB.
I am amazed at the wonderful people that CrossFit has brought me in contact with....through my old box, the Certs, competitions, visiting other boxes, The Games, coaches. I have newer been invited to visit someones house that I met in spinning class....what is that with our Community???
This summer I was adopted by my Coach's whole box, CrossFit Harlem, instant friends that hang out and have fun together. Is it because we go thru hell together ? Does that create some special bond?
Spinning is hell....I don't bond with my biker next to me....odd?
Are CrossFitters just more open minded - we tried a lot of things - we were wild enough to try CrossFit once and crazy enough to stay with it?? I don't know - but I am sticking with it.
Peace. Love. CrossFit.
