Today's WOD with the plate burpees ... eh ... I hated it, but it went pretty well. We do a lot of sprawls in Krav, so maybe I'm getting better at up & down since a sprawl is the shitty part of the burpee. So, then you add in a freakin 45lb plate and it makes the burpee a whole different animal! Buck those plate Furpees heh

Straight punches and front kicks, which are getting a lot better, then worked inside defenses.After a good bit of that, we did 360 defense slow then all out with pads. It's still a bit freaky having people throw hay-makers at my head, but I am much better at defending & countering.

Wednesday pain...all the normal warmup, but with 5lb db in each hand. This is massively harder than with nothing. Tons of squats, squat jumps, and squat to jumping round-kick. A side note: It's a little sad to see how pathetic some of the squats in this class are. No depth, chest down, etc. I am thankful for the great coaching I have from Zachary Thiel and Ben Flores at Crossfit Central - legit is the only way that counts.
