IT’S SHARK WEEK!!!!!!! AHHHHHHHH!!!!!
Normal week of workouts. I’ve been in my normal routine of resting Mondays and Fridays in order to skip squat days at our gym. I definitely get judged for that sh*t within the CrossFit community, but I don’t really care. I make my own rules with paleo, I’ll make my own rules with CrossFit. The only time I really get sore with squats is when I do more than 100 of them anyways. Because I’m just not very strong with them. So staying with lighter weight and higher reps seems to work better for my body. And joints. Only gettin’ older over here.
This week I want to talk a little bit about post workout nutrition. I personally don’t follow any sort of post workout nutrition. Sometimes I’ll make a shake with Formulx protein powder, almond milk and bananas when I have a workout that makes me feel like I’m going to die. But other than that, I don’t drink or eat anything post workout, other than water because I just don’t want it. Since I no longer do multiple workouts in a day, I just feel like eating or drinking something when I feel like it is the better idea. No point in forcing something down if your body doesn’t want it.
So what do you like to eat or drink post workout? Or do you not eat/drink anything at all? What has been your experience with post workout nutrition?

Monday – Rest day. You know. Because it’s squats day. And I’m not into squats. Unless it’s over light weight and 150 squats. Instead I got a ton of work done for my newest project! All day in the kitchen and on the computer means LOTS of work done!

I finished the workout in 9:06 using 105# for clean and jerk and 45# for kettebell swings. I probably should have gone up to 115# for the clean and jerk.
Wednesday – I love getting to practice muscle ups when it’s not in a workout. All I have to concentrate on is my movement, not getting through the actual workout. It’s just great practice. But my favorite part of the whole workout was doing deficit handstand push ups. I’m pretty good at doing kipping handstand push ups, so I pushed myself a little bit more in this workout by doing deficit handstand push ups. Not really by choice, but I’m glad I did it.
Deadlifts: 3-3-3-3. Add as you go. – I got to 195#
Between sets: 6 Muscle Ups or Bar Muscle Ups, both with an extra dip at the top or 8 C2B Pull Ups & 8 Dips – I did 3 muscle ups each time, without an extra dip because my boobs aren’t a fan of dips.
2 Rounds For Time Of:
I finished in 10:54 doing handstand push ups on 35# plates, so with a 2-3 inch deficit
Thursday – This was by far the worst workout of the week. We don’t do pistols very often at the gym and my ankles are pretty much the worst ankles ever, so keeping my heels on on the ground while doing pistols is close to impossible. But thankfully, this day was one of my better ankle days so I did all the pistols Rx. Which means I’m still sore today, 4 days later. How does my ass not look any different? Makes no sense.

20 Alternating Pistols
