Back to the Gym!

Today is the first day back at CrossFit Central for January workouts. Can't wait to take on our WOD: "Angie" For Time (cut off 20 minutes) 100 pull-ups 100 push-ups 100 sit-ups 100 squats Last time I did this one, I finished in 18 minutes and change, but I did jumping pullups. This time, I'll do all kipping pullups (with band assist) even if it takes me longer to complete. There's really no reason why I should ever do jumping pullups again - they are ridiculous. I gotta start building those back muscles if I want to get my unassisted kips down by March. Its strange, I'm kind of looking forward to being sore tomorrow. Just hope I can move my arms! ;) Today is the first day back to work on my strict Paleo diet. Its going well so far and thankfully all the holiday crap (cookies, candy, sausage, etc), is gone. Everyone seems to be on a health kick today - we'll see how long it lasts! ;)


  1. Jessica,

    "Angie" visited us for our first WOD today as well. Unlike you however, I still doing the jumping pull-ups. Today was my 10th WOD since I began. I am convincing my wife more and more each day that we need to go paleo. She is coming around.

    You can keep up with my Adventure Into Fitness and see how I am coming along.

    I look forward to reading your updates.


  2. Hey Robert!

    Glad to hear that you are getting into CrossFit. Angie is one of the toughest workouts in my opinion. Another dooze is Nasty Girls and Annie Are You Ok. Look forward to those!

    This was only my 2nd time at Angie since I began in August and I did much better. Although i planned to do pullups all the way through, I ended up doing the last 25 as jumping pullups. My hand were ripping from the bar, which hurt too bad. ;(

    Gotta remember to wear wraps on those Angie days!

    Good luck with your Paleo journey. I've got some links to other blogs with some great recipies. Check em out.

    I'll check out your blog today. Hoo-Rah!
