Training Tuesday

Last week, I only had one crossfit class due to the long weekend because of the Remembrance Day holiday.

In the Tuesday class, we were taught about front squats and wall balls. Both seem easy, but they are an amazing workout!

The front squats were basically a regular squat except that you have a weighted bar across the front of your shoulders. The main thing to remember is that you have to roll the bar back onto your finger tips while ensuring that your elbows are staying as high as possible.

Here is a picture example:

Wall balls are done using a weight padded ball that come in different weights from 6lbs to 20lbs. Using the ball, you throw it against the wall above a marked line and then catch it and throw it again using a squat. Probably not the best explanation, but hopefully the picture below helps.

The workout of the day for this class was three rounds of the following for time:

400m row
15 wall balls
15 sit ups

The workout took me 10:50 and it was tough! Can’t wait for the next class Smile
