As some of you may know, last week marked the start of the Crossfit Games. The games are open to anyone who wants to compete as long as they pay the entrance fee. Workouts can be done at home and videoed, or done at a Crossfit affiliated gym. Hubster signed up (for fun--not to compete) and his WOD (workout of the day) was scheduled for Friday at 5:30.
The first workout of the games? Seven minutes of burpee hell--as many burpees as you can. For those of you that have never done a burpee, seven minutes sounds simple enough. However, for those of you that have done a burpee, well, you know just how miserable this workout really is. It looked MISERABLE. I was so thankful that I wasn't having to do them!
|Had to jump 6" or it didn't count!|
|Sufficiently worn out!|
|Time for a cool down outside...|
|I'm so proud of him!|

|This girl's abs were INSANE. Picture doesn't do it justice.|
I'm really looking forward to hitting it hard at the gym this week. I'm also making a really conscious effort to eat a lot of veggies and fruits. It's simple logic: Clean Eating + Exercise = Killer body. All the people I spoke to at that event followed that mantra and you can see their results. Time to get serious about my health.
Did any of you compete in the Crossfit WOD this weekend? If so, how did you do? Link me in your comments!
