    Hey everyone,

    I was turned onto crossfit last year. I was scaling the WOD’s but getting through them. I was also training for a triathalon. After the tri, i just kind of took some time off 😉

    I have some friends that are doing crossfit and i really started getting jealous that they were getting into really good shape. So i have been doing the crossfit warmups for the past 3 weeks.

    I started this last night:

    L1D1: 30 rounds

    I don’t have a pullup bar, so i am doing pullups using a door.

    Wise decision over doing it can be as bad as under doing it. Balance and constancy will yield best results.

    Did a modified Nancy last night

    five rounds for time:

    400 meter run

    95 lb overhead squats

    that is nancy. I modified the 95 lb OHS squat. I took a fence post, its about 8 feet long and weighs about 20 lbs, maybe more and used that for the OHS

    time 16:05

    James,

    As I understand it, that 400 meter run is a sprint, in the crossfit world, isn’t it?

    hey sam,

    you can call it that, although by the 3rd, 4th round, there isn’t much sprinting if you know what i mean 😆

    That was a good workout last night, the legs during the squats were on fire, i knew that it was going to tough in the first round.

    I am looking for those crossfit workouts that don’t require anything but creativity, so i watch the WOD’s to see which fits that BILL
