"How'd that WOD feel, Bronson?"
"I felt it in my balls."
WOD means Workout Of the Day.
My third time at Kahala Cross fit, and also third time ever doing Crossfit, I learned that humility is the best workout preparation for:
20 wall balls (there's those balls again). I squat with a ball marked with the number 20. Wasn't sure if it meant 20Kg or 20lbs. Either way, it felt like a ton after trying to toss it 10 feet up in the air against the wall from a squat.
Run 200m. Did OK there.
15 barbell cleans from the ground. It feels like pulling a deadlift into your throat. Looks like it, too. Men's standard is 135lbs. Women is 95lbs. I did 75lbs. The woman behind me ripped 155lbs. off the floor. 15 times.
Row 500m. Felt that one in my balls.
15 barbell cleans. Again.
Run 200m. Again.
20 wall balls. Again.
The goal is to do it all as fast as possible with respect to form.
I emphasize form and control over everything else so I tend be really slow but I'm OK with it. Rushing becomes less of a factor that could compromise form anyway since we've descended into being retarded from exhaustion.
But I definitely felt my balls tingle during that WOD (lol). Was nuts. No pun intended.
