So…here’s where I’ve been training full time for about a month now.  Desoto Crossfit.  It’s a much smaller box than Faction Stength and Conditioning, but I’m liking it more and more each day.  I really miss my training partners, but it’s a lot of fun to meet new people and reunite with old friends.  This box is just 5 minutes from my house so there are a few people training here that I already knew from High School, the neighborhood, etc.

I started coaching my first class this week.  It’s a 6am class Monday through Friday.  Monday I had one athlete, Tuesday  2 athletes, and today I had 4 athletes!  I’m pretty excited about that.  So far I have all levels of CF experience from the 2+ year RX star to the brand spanking new first time crossfitter.  It’s really fun and a great learning experience to try to accomodate those different levels.  I’m really enjoying it.

Finding time to train myself is going to be a little difficult I think.  I’ve been trying to hit the 5am class and then coach the 6 am class.  It’s worked out ok, but I don’t want to cheat the athletes I’m coaching by being exhausted and unable to focus.  Anyway, here’s what I did this morning:

3 Rounds

Barbell Complex

  • 6 x Deadlift
  • 6 x Bent Over Rows
  • 6 x Hang Power Cleans
  • 6 x Front Squat
  • 6 x Push Press
  • 6 x Back Squat

Loads were: 40Kg, 50Kg, and 55Kg


Row 2000M for time.  I pr’d by a few seconds with a 7:27 time.  I think last  time I did this I rowed 7:32.  I had to stop after this because it was time to start the 6am class. 🙂
