Happy Super Bowl Sunday! (Yesterday someone asked me what I was doing for the game and I asked them, “what game is even on tomorrow?” True story.) I’m checking in with my weekly workout recap but I also have a fun giveaway for you at the end so read on!
Overall, it was a great week for me with two CrossFit WODs, two runs, two circuit workouts and four yoga practices (five if I go this afternoon). I would have liked to have subbed one of the strength/circuit workouts for a run but it was really cold most of the week so I was lacking the motivation!
4 mile run
It was 65 degrees and sunny in Charlotte on Monday with snow and freezing temps forecasted for the next few days so all I wanted to do was soak up the sun and run. I had a great run while listening to the Fire Starter Sessions…which always puts some pep in my step.
Ashtanga + CrossFit class
I’m one month in to my recommitment to ashtanga and it’s feeling so good. I practiced after I taught. Later that day I did a CrossFit class at the gym before teaching yoga. We started out with push press for the strength work. I worked up to sets of three with 85#.
4 min AMRAP: 15 push press, 10 double unders
rest 1 min
4 min AMRAP: 10 push press, 20 double unders
rest 1 min
4 min AMRAP: 5 push press, 30 double unders
rest 1 min
I have been working my shoulders a ton lately so I subbed deadlifts for the push press to get a little posterior chain work in. It was a great workout. The double unders totally crushed me.
CrossFit WOD + Hot vinyasa yoga
I had 10 minutes to workout between finishing coaching and going to a yoga class so I did 10 minutes of our 20 minute AMRAP.
20 minute AMRAP
5 power cleans
10 knees to elbows
15 wall balls
I got five rounds in. I think 25 power cleans, 50 knees to elbows and 75 wall balls in 10 minutes is pretty good! 😛
Circuit Training Class + Hot vinyasa yoga
My 8:30 a.m. client cancelled so I stayed at the gym to take our circuit training class. It was “snowpocalypse” themed and full of burpees. I LOVED this workout and felt amazing the whole time. I finished in just over 22 minutes and found that I didn’t need the one minute rest between rounds because I was so recovered after the sit ups, planks and wall sits. Try this one at home. Our trainer Billy who put it together is so awesome! I went to yoga after where I skipped all most of the chaturangas and all the abs. I thought I already had that covered for the day!

2.5 mile run, Strength circuit
I hit up the gym when I needed a break from the great purge. I ran 2.5 easy miles on the treadmill then did the following strength circuit.
20 squats (#75 bar, 5 front squats, 15 back squats)
10 pull ups (light band)
10 bosu push ups
20 bosu sit ups
Hot yoga…on my way to class shortly!
