I don’t remember where I first read about Crossfit. I think someone mentioned it in a thread on Lifehacker. After reading their website I was hooked. Their style of intense scheduled workouts caught my attention. Yesterday I did my first crossfit workout, although slightly modified. The workout was named Helen (most of their workouts have women’s names) which consists of a 400m run, 21 1.5 pood kettlebell swings, and 12 pullups all done three times, and timed. I didn’t have access to any kettlebells so I did 45 lb. squats instead. After the workout, which took me 32 minutes, I could barely walk down the stairs because my legs were so weak.
This morning, my legs, biceps, and shoulders are pretty sore. I thought that I might do today’s workout, but it’s 120 pullups and 120 dips. Not gonna’ happen.
