As most of you know, I workout primarily in my garage. I have almost everything you need for CrossFit (I’m lacking rings and a rope). That being said, working out by yourself is a challenge — especially if you are doing at-home workouts for a CrossFit competition.
THE TURKEY CHALLENGE CROSSFIT COMPETITION 2021
The Turkey Challenge is coming up next weekend in Broomfield, Colorado. It will be held at MBS CrossFit, which is supposedly as pristine of a location as you can get. I’m excited to see it.
The Turkey Challenge is usually a two-day CrossFit competition. However, due to COVID-19, Day 1 has been pushed to at-home. The challenge of working out at-home or doing the CrossFit workouts at your gym is that you are not pushed. You really have no one to work off of, so you’re on your own.
For me, the challenge was WODProof, an app that you can use to record your CrossFit workouts. It has a clock built-in and a community. However, filming yourself doing a CrossFit workout in your garage is not as easy as it sounds. I had to bribe my daughter with Starbucks right after, and it took me 30 minutes just to test the app to be sure it would work (the last thing I wanted was to have to do the CrossFit workouts again).
THE CROSSFIT WORKOUTS FOR TURKEY CHALLENGE
We had three CrossFit workouts, all in a row, with a running clock of 30 minutes. They programmed it for a 14-min AMRAP (8 alternating dumbbell hang snatches, 10 dumbbell box stepovers, and 12 wall balls) with a max power clean in the minute followed by a 7-min AMRAP of bar-facing burpees.
All around, it sucked. It wasn’t hard; logistically, it just sucked.
I did okay. You can watch the video and be the judge. Let me know in the comments, and subscribe to my YouTube channel!
