Daily Exercise Digest 22

Last Weekend:
Had a cleanup project up in the mountains - cleaning out the underbrush and dead growth from the soon to be overflowing streams in the area - this way there won't be as much debris to wash down and clog everything.

Last day of April and there was a bunch of snow up there. Awesome.

First experience with Crossfit. Nice workout! We did what is called "The Dirty Thirty" - but if you look this up online you get lots of different possible programs. 10 workouts, 30 reps each.
Before the dirty thirty, we did an active warmup: 6 laps around the gym, Soldier kicks across the gym, side-lunges across the gym 2 times (each leg), and inch-worm the final length back across the gym. Good warmup!
Then the Dirty30 starts, we did the following exercises 30 reps each:
  • Broad Jumps
  • Push ups
  • Sit ups
  • Wall Walks (Handstand against the wall, one arm lifting up to your shoulders/arm pits, other arm doing the same, both arms done counts as one)
  • Split Jumps (Switching Lunge jumps basically)
  • Burpees (I HATE burpees! But I love 'em)
  • Superman (lay flat, lift arms and chest and thighs off the ground
  • Dumbbell swings (like a kettlebell swing)
  • Dumbbell squats
  • Pull ups
Normally Pullups aren't tough at all for me - but after all the others - WOW tough!
I know I'm going to be sore tomorrow!
