Scaled Cinco 1

b4f6ee07c71d109727d7053b4e758886Hope you all had a happy Star Wars Day (May the 4th… be with you).  To celebrate Cinco de Mayo on Monday we’ve got an appropriately named workout, The Cinco 1 from the 2013 CrossFit Games… sort of.  The weight for the deads is lower (315#/205# instead of 405#/265#, really we’re just looking for heavy, but not gross), rather than an 80′ handstand walk we’re asking for 20 wall climbs, and even though the cap is a little longer, it’s still no easy task (sorry, no evil skull kettlebells).  Get a taste of the CrossFit Games, before you have a taste of margarita to commemorate the Battle of Puebla.  Olé!

    HBBS: 185# Still nursing my hip here.
    WOD: 43 w/275# and 16kg.
    Really struggled with this WOD today. Pistols were absolutely terrible, so I switch to 3 on each leg in rounds 2 and 3 because I wanted to get some wall climbs in before the cap. Blah. Tomorrow is another day.

    Great work 5:30am!

    HBBS – 295# – not feeling it this morning
    WOD – 10:08 Rx w/80ft of handstand walk (Olivia’s brilliant idea)…WHAT THE FUCK! My body is still in shock. That was an awful combination of movements. My pistols need work!

    Nice work 7AM

    HBBS: 200#

    WOD: 7:39rx w/ 80′ handstand walk (Thanks to Shane and Ky for joining me!). The non-alternating pistols were really tough – my body was BEGGING me to switch to the other leg. But the really heavy/high skill gymnastics combo is probably my favorite, so I’d totally do this wod again tomorrow…

    I’m competing in a 2-person (1 guy, 1 girl) RX competition hosted by CrossFit 2A in Acton on May 18th, a Sunday. My partner has dropped out so I’m in need of a replacement! Does anyone want to compete with me? Pleaseeeee. It’s already paid for, and I have a car. Team name is “Glutes of Glory.” Here’s the link.
