For those who don’t work out at a CrossFit “Box” it’s just you and your WOD (workout of the day). A testament to the value of our GymCore CrossFit community and that working out in a group is a great motivator, Kara, made it through 5 rounds and 15 reps of the WOD using 25 lbs; only 3 V-ups shy of 6 full rounds.
The Hang Squat Snatch was a new move for me. By the last few rounds I got that moment of a weightless feeling with the bar because I was using the jump to move the bar instead of just muscling it up in front of me. It was also the first workout I’ve done with Burpees. Those were fun (kind of) because I just kept thinking about how it would make me a better surfer; it’s the same move you do to pop up to standing when you’re catching a wave. Yet another reason for surfers to do CrossFit! Maybe we can start calling them Surfies. -Kara
