Push Press into a 5-Round WOD with Heavy Thrusters and Chest-to-Bar Pull-Ups. Not a bad little Tuesday!

CrossFit, Smashby Training, Megan, Coaching

Coach Megan leading the troops

So get this…. Heather has been working with Megan for a few weeks on trying to learn the KIP for pull-up. Before the workout tonight she decided that she would do her first CrossFit workout with no bands on the pull-ups, and just do them as “strict pull-ups”, and one at a time. Well, cue the workout, and she’s off. ALL OF A SUDDEN, THIS HAPPENS!

(by the way… my phone ran out of memory while filming this. just know that she was linking 4-6 of these in a row, and it looked like a piece of cake. SO COOL, HEATHER!)

After the workout, I talked to everyone and asked a very serious question:

How many of you tonight did SOMETHING for the first time?

This meant either pull-ups with no band, chest-to-bar for the first time, a thruster with more weight than in any other workout… it didn’t matter.

EVERY SINGLE HAND WENT UP!!! You guys are so awesome 🙂
