150218 – Box Jumps, Kettlebell Swings, Toes to Bar

Hey Fitness Friends,

I think is is time for a little status update. I haven’t posted much the past week. We took some time off from CrossFit. The break was needed and we feel refreshed. We still did our Insanity Max30 workouts. They are still hard, but giving us results.
We are also making more conscious efforts towards our diet. We found a brand called True Fruits, which bottles up fruit and green smoothies. We really like them. K also start liking more fruits and we are trying to incorporate more vegetables and healthier carbs into our diet. We have so far gone 3-4 months without having any kind of soda and 2015 without any fast food. Other bad choices are slowly eliminated as well, since we are cutting back on candy and chocolate. We are not restricting it and let ourselves have a piece if we want to. The “want” is not there very much though.
Even though our scale is definitely messed up there is some truth to it and this morning I recorded my lowest weight since starting 2015 and taking this whole thing a bit more serious.

K and I also signed up for the open on Tuesday, which was also my birthday. It will be my second time and K’s first. Even though we will be performing the first two workouts in Germany, we will be competing out of the South Central region and be there for the last 3 weeks.

The workout yesterday was great. A lot of things felt much better, due to the rest and Insanity. We also warmed up with a 7k+ row. This got us a good chunk closer to our goal.

21 Box Jumps 24″/20″
15 Kettlebell Swings 32/24 kg
9 Toes to Bar

Our Results:

Stay Strong!

Philipp
