Hello there and happy Friday! Today's workout outfit was inspired by the crazy wod I did last Saturday, which made me realize just how much I love the weight lifting portion of CrossFit.
Though you might hear a lot about the sprints, burpees, and pull-ups, there's a whole lotta weight lifting in CrossFit, too, which personally, I LOVE. (Yep, love it with all caps!) It's funny, too because back before my wedding when I first started weight lifting (in a traditional gym with weight machines and free weights) I hated it! Up until a few months ago, I dreaded the weight lifting I'd do with my trainer at lunch, which again, was done in a traditional gym with machines and free weights... Back then, I'd take cardio over chest presses any day! But now... now that I'm doing olympic lifts - with a barbell - I LOVE IT!
As of today, I've done exactly 20 CrossFit classes and my favorites have been the ones that included hang power cleans, clean and jerks, back squats -- something with the barbell! So when I found this Rack City tank, I squealed! Granted, I'm a long way from really racking my barbell, but I still love this tank. It gives me hope!
This weekend I'm headed to Williamsburg for a little R&R! Our schedule has been crazy lately because my husband started a new job and we commute to work together now! (That means I get up a lot earlier!) Anyway, I'm hoping to spend some time on the FFAB editorial calendar and schedule some awesome September posts! I'm excited about several new recipes and more industry interviews!
What are your plans this weekend?
Do you like weight lifting?
