And in a twist I had a really good session on upper body on Tuesday ๐Ÿ˜Š Incline bench dumbells rows and press all increased in weight and feeling stronger ๐Ÿ’ช

Went down tonight to 'do our own thing' and my PT was in. He called us over after we warmed up and passed us a small whiteboard on which he'd written a workout ๐Ÿ˜ฑ I recently asked him if he could try and get me ready to do the crossfit open in February at the prescribed weight for my age. Tonight he said if your in the gym you are my property especially if you want the open ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜Š

So he gave us
4 rounds of

dumbell z press

30 sec ring row hold as horizontal as possible

Then 10 rounds of
3 devil's press
7 thrusters
9 calories on the rower

Yes WOD is workout of the day in crossfit which is what I do rather than just solely weight lifting like most of the ladies on here. That WOD consisted of 4,000m on the ski erg (cardio equipment that mimics cross-country skiing) then 3 rounds of 150 press

ups, 100 dumbell snatches and 50 burpee box overs.

Spent more time this evening working on my handstands afterwards and able to do about 4 seconds with feet off the wall now so slowly improving.

I do think I maybe a bit sensitive atm as I'm struggling a bit mentally. Yesterday afternoon one of the other instructors was in and he said how well we are both doing.

Thankyou for all your comments and suggestions ๐Ÿ˜Š

Ouch i_w hope it recovers quickly ๐Ÿ˜” Agree with ankle mobility for squats. I have actually started to wear lifters for squatting didn't really want to and have resisted for a while but have given in now and it's definitely helping

EB great to hear you had positive feedback from another instructor! I still think people should be sensitive to your sensitivity...if you see what I mean - don't make it your fault (though good to be aware of when you might be overthinking).

Great to hear you're doing well and have something a bit more long-term to focus on.

IW, hope you won't be out for too long this time.

Got something to say?

And in case you're wondering about that title, well, I like alliteration and one can be too po-faced about the use of girl/lady/woman.
