11-10-20: Push-Ups, Sit-Ups and Kettlebell Swings

Elm City CrossFit Wod for Thursday, October 20th, 2011
OK, I didn't do 'em one armed. I can do those... but I can use the other hand to count the reps, with spares...
Ab-Mat sit-ups, legs spread a bit wide to take the hip flexors out of the equation a bit. Top position (not shown) is shoulders in front of the hips.

Kettlebell swings, as shown by CrossFit Games '11 3rd Place Women's individual winner Annie Sakamoto. Yup, she rules! (

WoD: 4 Sets Until Failure
  • Push-ups
  • Sit-ups
Score is Push and Sit-up combined total

Sellout: 5x 30sec on:30sec off:
Max Rep KBS 55# NO DROP

(Note: writing this a week later... memories are fading rapidly!)

My only goals were to try to maintain my numbers from round to round, not in a "save some for next round" kind of way, but just in that the total from the previous round became the next round's goal and to break 200 points. I didn't base that on a lot, and didn't work too hard to keep track of my total as I went. So it was kind of gratifying to hit that mark.


Total score: 204

Obviously, it wasn't the most successful goal, though I did manage to stay fairly consistent on the sit-ups... after the first round. :S
