My workouts this week were kind of all over the place due to the snow but I was sore all week! First from a CrossFit WOD and then from the snow day home workout that I did. It’s been a long time since I’ve been as sore as I was this week.
Hot Yoga + CrossFit
5 rounds for time:
20 ring dips
This was the programmed workout for Metro CrossFit on Monday. I coached it but didn’t get a chance to do it and was excited to knock it out on my own Tuesday. I went pretty light on the thrusters at just 45# and used a thin band for the ring dips. I knew I was in trouble as soon as the workout was over. 100 ring dips is A LOT of volume for a small muscle group like the triceps. They were sore for days after! The workout took me right at 12 minutes.
I was able to get a practice in right as the heavy snow started falling. It was so cool to practice with snow falling down outside. This was by far my best practice of the week. Body was open and mind was ready. After class I promptly got myself home where I stayed for the next 48 hours.
Home workout + 2 mile snow walk
I shared this workout with you guys on Thursday and I’m blown away by how many people have tried it. Thank you! One thing’s for sure…whether you did the full version or a scaled version, everyone was sweaty and sore! Keep it up! This is definitely a workout I’m going to keep in my back pocket for travel and home use. It was killer!
I was able to get back to the studio and practice and it felt great. There are not words to describe how sore my glutes were after 100 air squats, 100 jump squats and 100 jumping lunges. It hurt to sit down. Seriously.
30 minute treadmill hill and sprint interval run
Only run I was able to get in this week due to snow. Felt nice. Good recovery for my still sore legs.
Not sure but thinking some sort of CrossFit or strength workout with deadlifts and maybe some running to warm up.
UPDATE…it ended up being a rest day. After teaching yoga and then assisting teacher training all day…I was DONE.
What was the last workout that made you REALLY sore!?
