Today was the day I attempted to smash 13.2 of the Reebok Crossfit Games. Smash it I did not. I did however give it all I got.
On my practice run I managed 122 reps, not this time!

This what we were up against. I have never ever lifted 75lbs overhead so I knew this was my challenge. Yes the bar fell many a times and yes I go “no repped” quite a bit!

Here’s how it started
Chalk up

Assume the position

Now clean that bar and press it up overhead! Sounds easy right! NOPE

After managing 5 of those I deadlifted the hell outta that bar for 10 reps

Now onto 15 reps of box jumps, which I chose to step up to rather than jump!

I managed 3 rounds plus 4 reps for a total rep count of 94.. Urgh ! Here I am signing my scorecard

Not great but when I think back to 2010 when I was 284lbs, the only thing I was lifting then were cheeseburgers! I’m proud of what I have accomplished in the 3 short months I have been Crossfitting! I will only get stronger,better and faster!
