Two to three years ago, Lucie Hobart smoked, could not run 200 meters, could not do a pull-up, and overall did not really exercise. Now, at 56 years old she weighs the same as she did in her 20’s and in the best shape of her life. Even better she says, if she continues doing CrossFit, she will be fitter at 60 than she is now. If you are in the same boat or feel you are too “old” to get started, do yourself a favor and watch this video.
EMOM for 12 minutes:
Every odd minute, perform 6 deadlifts.
Every even minute, perform AMRAP of strict handstand push-ups.
The deadlifts should definitely hurt. They can be touch and go, but no excessive bouncing. I will not accept pulling and dropping the bar 6 times. If you feel you have to do that, you need work on your deadlift form. Work your way up in weight if possible. The weight will be recorded. You should have a weight on there that is definitely heavier than any weight you have done in a WOD before. If you can’t do handstand push-ups, I want you getting inverted. Whether that means you kick up and practice holding or wall walking up, that’s what I want you to do. If that’s the case, you get “PRAC” for practice written as your score for your HSPU.
