Crossfit OPEN 12.4

Since I'm using this to track my progress in the Crossfit OPEN, 
I wanted to be sure to post an update from 12.4.


150 Wall Ball is a benchmark worked in CrossFit called "Karen," then for this workout we had to complete 90 Double Unders and with remaining time Muscle-Ups (which I've never done).  

I was able to get through the 150 WB, 90 DU, and had 2 minutes to attempt muscle ups, with no success.  It would have been a miracle to get one when push came to shove as they are a complicated and TOUGH movement that not a ton of gals have.  It takes some serious upper body strength.  On the other hand, Gabe made got through the WB, DU, and got 10 musle ups, woohoo!



Ironically hubs and I are both sitting 13% in the NW region AND individually in the #3 spot (for men and women) at Northwest Crossfit.  This next week will be key for us to hold our standing to be able to compete on the NWCF team at regionals!!!  No pressure .... RIGHT!

Only one workout left ...

You're doing awesome!! That's too funny that you and Gabe are sitting at the same standings! I don't know if you saw it on my blog, but a bunch of us PNW bloggers are doing the March for Dimes walk in Tacoma on May 12th and I thought you might wanna join us! The info is on my blog if you are :)

Wow that is awesome that you got through what you did. Those muscle ups look very hard! Nice work to Gabe!! That's awesome are in the same standing!!

Kelly said...

As always, I LOVE your weekly recaps-- SOO neat! Congrats, you two are doing so well :-D Your friend in the green tshirt who did the muscle ups without stopping is a phenom-- WOW!! We jump rope in boxing for 10 minutes for our warm up and I don't think I could ever do the double unders... stupid question-- do you use special jump ropes?? (probably I'm just horrible at jumping rope ;-))

Emily said...

Just had to tell you I went to my first throw down :)
