My body is broken…

Holy crap crossfit kicks my booty (and my arms, and quads, and hip flexors, and chest, and..)!  There is no way you can leave there and not feeling wrecked.  Every. Single. Time.  It is truly crazy!

Here is how it all went down yesterday—>

Warm-up:  2 mins jump rope, 30 squats, 20 kettle-ball swings

Skill:  Overhead squat 4-4-4-4
For some reason, I can NOT do this skill.  I tried with a 15# (Yes, I am weak.) bar and still could not get the technique down.  I was already feeling defeated and then Ryan showed me this pic—>grandma*If this lady can do it, Damn it, so will I!

WOD: (for time)
20-19-18-17-16-15-14-13-12-11-10
push-ups and medicine ball squats (do 20 of each, than 19, 18, etc…)

Cool down:  800m run

So you may think that doesn’t seem so bad…UNTIL you realize that I did 165 push-ups and medicine ball squats!  No wonder I couldn’t move my arms when I was done and literally laid in a pool of my own sweat (and every other crossfit members) on the floor.  I physically couldn’t lift myself off the floor.

Today I feel like this—>broken

    There have been times when I was feeling bad after tough workouts and was unable to follow my training regime. That was not what I was planning to do when I’ve started going to the gym 🙂 My trainer has really helped me by telling a lot about the importance of propoer nutrition and by giving advices on how to improve it. Now I am trying to make my food as rich in nutrients as possible. Still, our everyday life sometimes does not allow receiving all vitamins and minerals from the food we take. Besides, after workouts our muscles need special support in order to recover properly. I was advised to take Second Wind by Military Grade. This is new post-workout supplement, which supports muscle recovery without any trauma. Now I am feeling better and stronger than ever before.
