I’ve got 6 days of crossfit under my belt. I’ve learned how to squat a new way, do a proper deadlift, do a double under, and a number of other things. Our workouts are hard. Heck, our warm-ups are hard – they include dips on the rings, pull ups on bars (eventually to become kipping pull ups) which tire me out on a good day.

So I’ve learned I’m not so fit.

Friday we did the following as a bench mark workout (we’ll do it again at the end of week 4):

15 sumo deadlift high pulls with the kettle bell (I had a 12kg one. ow)

10 box jumps (I had a 16″ box)
5 burpees (and yes, your chest must touch the ground)

oh yeah, and it was 5 rounds of that.

Here’s hoping things get easier!
