I went back to my CrossFit box for today’s WOD. I love the camaraderie and competition there, and would work out there more often if it was a little less expensive. As it is, I target workouts with skills I need to work on. Today, it was rope climbs.
We worked on power cleans from the hang position and climbs then did a forearm-burning workout:
10 Hang Power Cleans
10 Knees to Elbows
1 25′ rope climb
Five rounds of any CrossFit workout is difficult. This was not so hard from a cardio perspective, but it really challenged my grip strength. Perfect training for the Mudder and the Metro Dash, which includes quite a bit of climbing.
