Why I love Crossfit more than the gym →
drewdesouza: I’ve been going to my local Crossfit box, or gym called SaskPro since last October and I have to say it’s probably been one of the best choices I’ve made in my life, hands down. There’s a few reasons why I think Crossfit is better than a regular gym membership. 1. Ease - All exercises… my feelings exactly!
Warm-up Tabata burpee pullups (3) Lift Bench Press - 5RM (95) Training - 2 Rounds each, for total reps 2 min. Ring Rows (knees bent) 2 min. DB Snatch 70/45 (35) Total: 76 benched 100 today! okay it was only 2 reps but still.. 95 used to be my one rep max, and now I can do 5?! whaaaat.. also, burpee pullups… suck so hard.
go the distance
