CrossFit: CrossFit Hero WOD Artie

CrossFit: CrossFit Hero WOD Artie

Looking for a CrossFit Hero Workout that was short, I picked Artie. Named after Police Officer Arthur “Artie” Lopez of New York, Officer Lopez was killed in the line of duty in 2012.

It is a 20 minute AMRAP (as many rounds as possible) of:

  • 5 pull ups
  • 10 push ups
  • 15 air squats
  • 5 pull ups
  • 10 thrusters at 65 lbs

This is Cindy with some thrusters, I thought. No problem.

It turned out to be a problem.

About round 3, I kept thinking, This sucks. I don’t want to be doing this.

After each round, I’d check the clock and think, Ok, only 14 minutes left.  Ok, only 11 minutes left.

Those were some LONG minutes!

I finished with 9 rounds overall.  I was elated to be done, and I went on my merry way.

The next day, I wasn’t quite so merry. My quadriceps were screaming at me. My arms were sore.

Maybe it was the 90 thrusters I did.

Maybe…
