Conquering Double Unders!!!

Woman jump rope double unders

Double unders are understandably a source of great frustration for many newcomers to CrossFit. A double under = the rope goes under your feet twice with every jump. It is mostly about technique for many and it just doesn’t come that easily. They have been especially frustrating to me because I have been doing CrossFit for […]

Experiencing a CrossFit Slump – What to Do?

Experiencing a CrossFit Slump – What to Do?

I am desperately trying to get my groove back right about now. I have been going through a period where I am not so much in love with CrossFit and I have been struggling with finding the motivation to go. I am in a slump. I think the root cause stems from many different factors: […]

I know that I am not going to be competing in any official CrossFit competitions any time soon but even so I felt I had to add my names to the hoards of athletes who are going to participate in The Open. Why? Well, why not? I figure at the very least it will help […]

New Wheels, New Goals

Enough with the Sumo Deadlift High Pulls Or Give Me More?

Crossfit workout

It seems that for the past two weeks the favorite element to include in our WODs has been the SDHP or Sumo Deadlift High Pull with a Kettlebell. UGH. In general I do not mind this exercise but doing it so much became a drag. Give me a snatch or a plain old deadlift please, […]

Finally Nailed That L Sit – Sort of

Gymnastic Rings

We got to the box a bit early this morning. Hubby took to the rollers and to chatting. I decided on a whim to start my day feeling like a total failure by doing an L sit on the rings…except I didn’t fail. Only last week I attempted this and was not even able to […]
