So my co-worker was supposed to teach a class next Wednesday. I was going to sit in on said class. He got called into jury duty, and he was selected. So now he’s not teaching. Guess who’s subbing for him?
lololol - so not only do I have to learn all of the material in a week on my own, but I have to learn it well enough to teach 30ish professionals. And be able to convince them that I know what I’m talking about. And I’ve never taught a class before? My first class was scheduled for March, and it was going to be co-taught. I’ll be teaching this one by me onesie.
It’ll be fine. I think. BUT! Needless to say, work came home with me. Rude.
I did manage to get in some CrossFit, though.
- 500m row
- Line drills
- Barbell progressions
- muscle up (scaled to: 2x ring dip, green band + 2x ring row)
- squat clean thruster, 95# (lolol - scaled to 45#)
- stretching + mobility
Squat clean thrusters are CRUEL. Instead of normal thrusters, the barbell has to touch the ground between each rep. So a full squat clean, and then as you stand, you press it out. Again, these types of WODs are sort of frustrating, because I have to hold back on the weight. I can squat and clean much more weight than I can press. WOMP.
Also, for the muscle up substitutions, we had to do 2x each as one rep - we couldn’t do 30x rings dips and then 30x ring rows/pullups. Switching back and forth ate a lot of time.
Annnnd according to one girl in my class, I’m freakishly flexible. These hips don’t lie, baby.
Ugh. Okay. Adulthood. Back to work.
