Weekly Workouts

I can't believe the weekend is already over!  Honestly, I spent most of it drinking cocktails and stuffing my face.  I'm really ready to get back on track with some healthy habits!  A few of the blogs that I love always do weekly workout recaps.  I really enjoy following along so I decided to give it a go!

S - Rest

M - CrossFit
  • Strength: Back Squats - During warming up I somehow tweaked my IT band :(  I started to warm up my squat and I had a sharp pain in my right thigh so I immediately stopped and spent the time stretching and foam rolling.
  • WOD:  The workout had a bunch of squats in it too, so my coach and I made up a different workout for me:
    • 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 Toes to Bar and Handstand Push Ups - I did the HSPU with one ab mat under my head and finished in 11:40.  My shoulders were cooked.
T - 0.6 mi walk with Butler + CrossFit (Barbell Club)
  • 6 x 2 Snatch Grip Deadlifts, which I took off a rack near my knees and just did the motion from above my knee to the top of my thigh since my IT band still hurt.  I worked up to 75#.
  • 6 x 2 Muscle Snatch, I did it from the hang position right above the knee.  I made it up to 75#.  Iit was so awkward to not bend my knees at the top catch position.
  • 7 x 1 Snatch, I did power hang snatches.  I got to 90# (5# under my max).
W - CrossFit
  • Strength: Overhead Squat - I just did mobility, still trying to work out my IT band issues.
  • WOD:  4 Rounds (10 minute cap) - Finished in 8:55
    • 10 Burpee Pull-Ups
    • 5 Power Snatch (135/95) - I did 55# and did them from the hang.  I probably should've done a heavier weight.
I'm in the back middle, behind the pole.

Th - 1.0 mi walk with Butler

F - 1.4 mi walk with Butler.  I usually hit the gym Friday mornings, but I decided sleeping in was a good option.  Between my IT band, ongoing back pain, and a little bit of discomfort in my left shoulder after an upper body heavy week for me, I knew my body could use the rest.

S - 1.0 mi walk with Butler

I usually try to make it to the gym 4 times per week, but I'm really hoping this extra rest means I can go all out this coming week.  Injuries suck.

Here's to a fresh start!


  1. I love weekly workout posts too. Hope your IT band pain is going away!

  2. Ugh, I hate you're having such bad IT band issues! I find yoga is the only thing that truly keeps mine at bay.

    1. Happy to report that my pain is gone and I did a bunch of heavy squat cleans yesterday :D


Every comment makes me smile, so keep 'em coming!
