Part of the time was the difficulty of barbell math (ok, so the bar plus 25 plus 25 plus...how do I get to 125 again?) and swapping things out from my partner to me. But part of it was truly that this took some serious time.
I took this warm up very seriously because I assumed the work out was going to be quick. So I chose this day to switch from my girly push up crutch to grown up push ups. I also did not take breaks during the warm up (which I will admit I often do. Especially when burpees are involved). I treated it like its own WOD and I enjoyed it.
5/16/12 WOD #50
- Warm up: 800 m run
4 rounds of Cindy: 5 pull ups (2 red bands)
10 push ups (not girly anymore!)
- WOD: 1*1*1*1*1*1*1
Each F stands for failure- I was unable to reach depth and drive back up at that weight. Although if you look at my results I failed and redeemed myself twice. Unfortunately it was all about form for me. I used to think I was good at squats. But since I bottomed out so much, now I am reworking my squat form and it is killing me a little bit. Now I am not reaching depth, rocking forward to my toes, leaning forward...No good. Just no good. So I am working now on my air squats to make sure my form is good and then apply it to the darn overhead squats and back squats etc etc.
