CrossFit Girl Workout Megan

CrossFit Girl Workout Megan is a CrossFit benchmark (those workouts you repeat as a gauge to measure your improvement) that is quick. I use this workout frequently as a warmup for my CrossFit workouts.

CrossFit Girl WOD Megan:

21-15-9:

  • Burpees
  • Kettlebell swings (35 lbs)
  • Double unders

Definitely a nice little workout under 10 minutes to get your heartrate up and you nice and warm.

CrossFit Girl Workout Annie

Almost every CrossFitter has done CrossFit Girl Workout Annie. It consists of:

50-40-30-20-10:

  • Double Unders
  • Sit ups

This is a quick workout IF you have double unders. If you don’t have double unders or struggle, this workout can be frustrating to say the least.

What Makes You Want to Quit CrossFit?

If you’ve been doing CrossFit long enough, there have probably been times where you want to quit. Maybe it’s been a particularly tough workout. Or, maybe you got injured. Or, maybe you decided the daily grind is just not worth it anymore.

For me, the only thing that makes me want to quit CrossFit is getting a massage.

My massages are deep tissue massages, and I have a lot of knots in my shoulders.

Lately, my left lat has been super tight.

My massages are painful — super painful. I clench my teeth and bare it because I know it helps. But during the entire massage session, I constantly wonder why I CrossFit.

One day, I’d like to know what a regular massage feels like; the type of massage that actually feels good.

What about you? What makes you wan to quit CrossFit?

The Danger of Doing Your Own CrossFit Programming: Plateauing

The danger of doing your own CrossFit programming is that you have a high likelihood of plateauing.

Plateauing when it comes to working out is just maintaining and not really growing your skills as an athlete.

For the past four years, I would say I’ve plateaued. I have gotten moderately stronger, but not really.

Granted, when I was injured, that was my goal — to just maintain.

Now, I want to grow stronger and become better, which is why I’ve partnered with a coach and with a nutritionist.

CrossFit is for Those Who Like Beating the Shit Out of Themselves

There are many reasons I want to train for the CrossFit Games. However, I’d say this reason reigns as one of the top one.

I truly do like beating the shit out of myself. I enjoy doing things other won’t. I enjoy making WODs harder by going heavier than prescribed. I enjoy being sore the next day.

It makes me feel alive. It makes me feel like I’m doing something.

It ultimately makes me feel like I’m not wasting my life.

7/13 Squat Program

I started 7/13 Squat Program, which is designed to increase your front squat lift. It does both back squats and front squats. It’s a 10-week squat program that I did about three years ago. It is so named because it starts out lifting 7 front squats and 13 back squats back-to-back.

This program is brutal, but it works.

Who Knew I Had Strict Chest-to-Bar Pull Ups?

So, I went to the CrossFit gym today, mainly because the WOD had chest-to-bar (C2B) pull ups, and I wanted to practice my butterfly C2B pull ups.

But I had a problem; I had practiced both C2B and bar muscle ups in my garage yesterday, so when I woke up, I was sore, and my hands still hurt.

I went anyways and told myself to see how it went.

I tried to butterfly but gave up right away; I just didn’t have them in me.

So, I tried strict C2B pulls up, which I haven’t done in years.

And I had them!

Not only that, but I had A LOT of them!

Either I’m getting stronger (I’m sore enough to be getting stronger), or I just didn’t realize I had them.

Either way, it was cool to see, and it gave me renewed confidence that this pain is all worth it.

I’d love it if you subscribed to my YouTube channel (you don’t have to watch — just subscribe!). Thanks!

It’s Time to Get Serious About CrossFit

So after the CrossFit Open, I’m feeling like it’s time to get serious about CrossFit.

For the past couple of years, I haven’t improved all that much. Mainly because of injuries. However, I’ve found I’ve become quite complacent, and I don’t like that.

I should have done better at the deadlifts on CrossFit Open 22.2. I should have finished CrossFit Open 22.3 but got stuck on the bar muscle ups. I was just disappointed all around.

So now, I’m putting in place what I need to do to get stronger and to get my skills down.

I don’t want to be good any longer. I want to be more than good.
