A Killer V-Day Workout

by - Thursday, February 14, 2013

Happy Valentine's Day lovers!

Hope your day is full of happiness, love and maybe a little bit of chocolate.

I decided the best way to celebrate the holiday was to get my ass handed to me at CrossFit this morning.

I love deadlifts. I love deadlift variations. I think I'm having a love affair with deadlifts, so I was happy to see them on the board for today's workout.

Hope no one needs me to lift my arms over my head today. @cfsilverspring

The sweat part of the class though. Oh holy goodness. I don't think I'm going to be able to lift my arms over my head for weeks. (maybe that's a bit overly dramatic...)

But for real. Rowing + push presses + push ups. Death to the arms/shoulders.

Also if you guys have a minute today, go check out this blog post by one of my CrossFit coaches, Rachel. It's about being strong vs hitting a magical number on the scale, and it really spoke to me. I have lots of thoughts about this topic that I'll discuss later, but I really enjoyed her post, so go read it. (Plus it's short. Will take you like two minutes to read.)
