Friday 13.5: Crossfit Kehä

Friday. Metcon, 12min amrap: 8 wb, 10 burpee, 12 box. Result, 228 reps.

It was a recreational day at work. Together with Toni we arranged so that a good bunch of my colleagues got a chance to get a first taste of crossfit in their life. It was a 90-minute class of introducing crossfit as a sport and hobby, then warm-up, metcon and cool down. Great way to close the work week.

Metcon. Time, 228 reps (7 rounds + 10 burpees)
  • 12min amrap of:
  • 8 wall balls
  • 10 burpees
  • 12 box jumps
Got to be proud of these guys! It was a blast throwing down with good people. And Toni did a good job hosting our team this Friday. The metcon itself was a lot more brutal than I anticipated. It looks so deceptively easy. I'll tell you, it wasn't.

Bodyweight movements all the way. No need to stop at any point. That made it mentally challenging. There were no excuses. I kept moving and got through almost 8 rounds. Those burpees sucked butt. Really nasty. That seemed to be the general opinion. It was great to see these guys attack it from the very first 3-2-1-go command! There was a lot of eagerness in the air, and they went all in right away.
