Week 19: CrossFit Journey (Week 9 of 12 of the Strength Training Program)

June 17, 2018

Well we are in the home stretch of our 12-week strength training program and maybe it was the light week that helped from last week or taking a little Shakeology Power Boost prior to some of the workouts but I definitely got back on track with some solid numbers this week.

Here is my updated Strength Program Worksheet Link

This week’s highlights (max rep #):

Back Squats – 11 @ 130

Bench Press – 8 @ 135

Deadlift – 15 @ 220

Also had a couple fierce endurance workouts that I absolutely crushed.  Starting to really understand my limits and where I can take chances to push through in a workout.  I know one of my strengths in Rowing so I can use that to my advantage and pick up the pace there while staying consistent on the rest of the workout.

CrossFit isn’t only about putting up big weights but learning the proper techniques.  On Saturday, I was learning how to perfect the muscle snatch which I’ve rarely done before.  I took a light barbell and worked through it for that particular OTM cadence.  Definitely recommend anyone starting out to take this approach and ease their way into certain movements, especially a more advanced one like the muscle snatch.

Can’t believe next week will be an even 20 weeks of CrossFit.  So amazed with the results and how my body has transformed over these past 4 months and excited for the next 20 weeks!

Keep grindin’!
