A Whole New World.

...a dazzling place I never knew!

I'm obviously in a Disney/Aladdin mood. If you can get me that DVD, I'll buy you KBBQ :D

On Monday, my gym was closed, so I dropped in at my brother's gym.

Warm up: I was definitely shy, and I wasn't used to their structure. I wasn't sure when to start the warm up, lol.
2 minute squat hold
25 walking lunges
20 scorpions
15 jumping pull ups

A: Back Squat 5 x 5 @ 80%

B: 3 RFT
21 burpee/wall ball (20/14)
15 pull ups

Results A: I'm still trying to find my 1RM, so I did it at 173 lbs. It was a challenge, but I was told I have a good squat form :)

Results B: I used the prescribed wall ball weight, and used a band to do kipping pull ups. My time was 11:57. Those burpee/wall balls are hard! But I felt I got a good work out.

I was supposed to WOD with my brother, but he had gotten off work late. It was a nice change going to his gym, they're all friendly and goofy.

Warm Up:
25 foot bear crawls
25 foot sampson stretch
10 push ups
25 foot sampson stretch
25 foot bear crawls
..."smile!" LOL. Yes, that was written on the whiteboard.

A: Push Press 7 x 1

20 push press 115/85
12 toes to bar
14 box jumps 24"/20"

Results A: 65-75-85-95-105-110-120 PR
I need to practice using more of my shoulder muscles than my clavicles lol. I need to remember to think of it as a front squat position. I attempted my PR 3 times because I kept jerking it than pushing it up. By the 3rd time, all you hear me scream is "DID I DO IT?! DID I DO IT?!" And Coach D was all YEAH! *high five* lol

Results B: I did the push press at 75 lbs, knees to chest, and 20" box jumps
4 rounds + 12 knees to chest + 4 box jumps
Middle of the 2nd round, I got my first box jump injury! It was just a bad bang, and when I fell on the box, the guys around me were all ARE YOU OK? Of course I'm okay! My ego is just hurt, LOL. I did the best I can, but when I got home, that sucker got swollen.

Today... clean & jerks. and running. GAH.

On a brighter note, I'll be WODing earlier today and I'm going to pick up a pair of Reebok OLY shoes :) I mean, they're expensive, but I have to start somewhere. And it may be good for the barbell seminar I will be attending this Sunday!


Popular posts from this blog about that comfort zone

So, for the past year and a half, I have made it a point to do things to get out of my comfort zone. Even if it's as minuscule as going to farmers market. 
BTW, I went to a farmers market for the first time on Saturday! The BFF has been wanting to go and we finally had the chance to. So, you know how they sell organic and fresh produce? Yeah... We didn't get any of that. However, we did taste test some fruits and it was friggin bombskies! 

Nutella filled Hawaiian donut. What's up. 

BFF got her flowers and I got my macaroons from Munch Bakery. Turns out her dad and my dad golf together. 
Random question: how far would you drive to buy a couple pairs of pants?
To answer that for myself... 80 miles round trip... And the pants weren't even for me, lol. 
Shoutout to the BFF for sticking it out with me! 

After four, and I repeat, FOUR hours of searching for pants, the BFF and I met up with Big Bruddah at Gen KBBQ! Best decision of my life!
Another comfort-zone-breaker... I …

Skee TV: Fort Minor

So let me tell you. I've never won anything... EVER. During my Monday mini break, I was on instagram and saw that Skee TV was having a giveaway. Pretty much just comment on that picture of Mike Shinoda/Fort Minor and that's my entry. 
Skee TV added me on instagram, and commented on one of my pictures (Rawle D. Lewis) saying I was chosen! I emailed them and boom. I got my tickets. 
I followed Fort Minor since Mike Shinoda created it and man, it was AWESOME. And I can knock it off my bucket list - going to a rap/hip hop show. Also got a glimpse of Mr. Hahn!
I don't care what you say. I'm happy AF. 

Since I won, the Skee TV rep hooked it up with some merchandise. Mike Shinoda signed the snapback. I fangirled so hard.

After the show, we managed to head to Guisados and got some mafuggin tacos.
