The 2018 CrossFit Open ended.  I did each workout as prescribed, meaning I lifted amounts of weight as written, and followed all the rules on burpees, handstand push-ups etc.  Each year, I can compare fitness to others around the world and see my ranking over the years.  I was a little disheartened at first to learn that I did worse than last year, according to my ranking.  

Last year, I was the 336th fittest woman in my state, and this year 520th.  A lot is different.  I get that.  The workouts are different, more people sign up and participate in the open, etc.  I was a little sad.  Not anymore.  I am proud of my hard work each week, especially after not “crossfitting” or even being on a regular workout schedule lately.  (It turns out, when training others as your job, your training takes a backseat.)

I feel like the open was just what I needed to start making some changes to my health and fitness.

It’s time to get back on track!

And with that, comes Train it Tuesday!

Train it Tuesday will be the day that I will share one of my workouts of the past week.  A workout that I completed the previous week that I programmed for myself.  Although I AM a certified personal trainer, know that this is just me sharing a bit of my own programming and what I do for fun to workout.

This is NOT an individualized program. If you want to try out these workouts (and please do!), do so safely.  Listen to your body.  You know how you move.  Talk to your doctor if you are brand new to working out.  Get cleared.  Always properly warm-up and cool down.

Feel free to ask if you have questions on movements, but if you are seeking help on if you are doing a movement correctly or want an individualized program, contact me directly and we can go from there!

With all that…

Drumroll please….

The first Train it Tuesday workout:

5 Rounds:

20 Kettlebell Swings

10 Single Arm Rows (5 each arm with kettlebell)

20 Kettlebell Swings

10 Single Arm Presses (5 each arm with kettlebell)

20 Kettlebell Swings

10 Goblet Squats

 

Let me know how it goes!
