CrossFit WOD

Max Effort: Bench Press 5×5

4 Rounds for time

12 Deadlifts (185/135)
12 Kettlebell Swings (53/35)
6 Hand Stand Pushups

5×5 Bench Press: 45, 65, 75, 80, 85.  My max is either 90 or 95, so I should be getting a new PR soon!

Today was a good day for some over-achieving!  I was feeling good during the warm-up and bench press, so I upped the deadlift to 155 pounds and swung the 40 pound kettlebell.  The heavier weight made the hand stand pushups more difficult because of the added stress on my core.  But, I pushed through it and still finished pretty strong.  I don’t really have anything to compare my time to as there were no weights or Rxs listed on the board, only times.  I know there had to be athletes who were able to do the workout as Rx and I know of at least one in an earlier class who over-achieved as well.  Oh well, I should only be competing against myself, anyways.

Time: 11:40 Rx+
