Annie get your CrossFit

"Annie"
54-40-30-20-10 reps for time:
Double Unders
Abmat Sit-ups
Time - 7:30

I like this workout. It doesn't take a lot of strength, it's really fast and I can go really hard for 7 mins before my lungs get the better of me. (Take note ladies). It also make me think of my secret girlfriend favorite CrossFitter, Annie Thorisdottir aka "Iceland Annie". She's the two time reigning CrossFit Games champion and I am pretty sure she could snap me in half like a twig. How hot is that?!?

As for the WOD, the last time we did this was March. I set a PR then and figured I didn't have a chance in Hell to set another one but I did today by 23 seconds. I was shocked to be honest. I've been really gentle on my back the last few weeks so I haven't been doing double unders. I figured the layoff would cause some rust. I did a little skills practice on Saturday and finally figured out how to flip my wrist properly. (You would think a single dude wouldn't have that problem.) Either way, It really paid off today as I was able to do more consecutive doubles than I have in the past. While I was really happy with my time, I'm pretty sure the only way I can go sub seven on this is to really practice my double and do them unbroken. That's the fun part about CrossFit. There is always something to work on and always room to improve.

One last thing, I've talked about this before but it bears repeating because of a conversation I had at the box today. This WOD will KILL your fanny with abmat butt hickeys unless you take precaution. Here is the secret to eliminating abmat butt rash. Get a large, square latex bandage. Put it right at the top of your backside where the good lord split you. I swear to God I do it every single time I do abmat sit-ups in high volume and I never get butt hickeys.....


at least not from sit-ups......
