done with fundamentals

Finished up the CFJC fundamentals class this week, with classes Tuesday and Thursday mornings.

On Tuesday we went over a lot of the movements we'd already learned, and then we learned proper form for kettlebell swings. The workout at the end of class was:
10 minutes as many rounds as possible of:
5  one-handed kb swing (each side)
10 push ups
15 jumping squats

I got through 7 full rounds, then the kb swings and 4 push ups... tough one!

This morning we were tested on everything we had learned over the 6 classes - then we did a partner workout. Sounds simple enough: Row 4000M. Switch with your partner every 500M, so each person ends up doing 4 sets of 500M. This was a leg burner!

My partner and I pushed it and got 17:33 total time. Felt good after!

Can't wait to go to some regular classes now!

fundamentals class #4

Today was class #4 of fundamentals at CrossFit Jersey City and I'm loving it so far. Today we learned proper technique for hang cleans and push jerks. Then we split into two groups, one group did wall balls and the other learned handstand pushups (or scaled versions of them...)

Workout at the end was:

3 rounds of:
15 Deadlifts
12 Hang Cleans
9 Push Press

We did it with a partner, each of us rotating with the exercises, so it theory we did 6 rounds total. We finished at 10:04.
