Beast Mode:  ON!  Believe me when I say, it definitely needs to be turned "on" today!!  Today's CrossFit Mamas workout looks "beastly", or should I say "filthy"?  lol  I'll just go ahead and post it, then talk.

CrossFit Mamas:
   Filthy Fifty - 50 reps each:
      Box Jumps, 18"
      Jumping Jacks
      Kettlebell Swings, 15 lbs
      Walking Lunges
      Knees to Elbows
      Push Press, 20 lbs
      Back Extensions
      Wall Ball Shots, 10 lbs
      CrossFit Sit-ups
      Jump Rope

See what I'm talking about?  This is a "compare to" workout, comparing to January 29, 2013 and I'm happy to say I did this before!  My time was 31:35 and I used 15.5 lbs for the kettlebell swings, 24 lbs for the push press, 4 lbs for wall ball, and I did knees-to-elbows on the floor.  But...looking at the workout from January, it's just a little bit different.  Not sure how that will affect my time, but seeing that we did burpees then but not today, it shouldn't be any worse!  lol 

Here's what we did on the January 29th:
   50 Jump rope
   50 Burpees
   50 Wall ball shots w/10 lbs
   50 Push press w/20 lbs
   50 Knees to elbows
   50 Walking lunges
   50 Kettle bell swings w/15 lbs
   50 CrossFit sit-ups
   50 Box jumps

I'm not complaining - I'd MUCH rather do jumping jacks over burpees any day!  lol  That alone should improve my time!  I will do the knees-to-elbows on the bar instead of on the floor like I did before, so that will slow me down - but still happy with NO BURPEES!!  - especially after yesterday!!  :)

Brand X:
   Mix L-Pullups and Pullups, 35-50 reps
     -assisted and progressions are okay

I had to Google L-Pullups and they are just like they sound.  You pick up and hold your legs out in front of you, so your body is making the "L" shape, then pull up.  I will not be doing Brand X today, but posted it if anyone would like to.

Looking forward to today's workout!  I love the ones that are all mixed up like this, they are my faves!!
24:26!!!!!  WOW!  I knocked off 7:09 from my time (31:35) on January 29th!!  SO happy with that!!  I know that came from not doing burpees - they slow me down SO bad!!

Box Jumps - 11"
Jumping Jacks - as rx'd!
Kettlebell Swing - 15.5 lbs, as rx'd+!!
Walking Lunges - as rx'd! - these KILLED me!  By far, the hardest exercise today.
Knees to Elbows - on bar, mostly knees to boobs or just above waist level *done on floor in January
Push Press - 24 lbs, as rx'd+!!!
Back Extensions - as rx'd! - still feel like a beached whale!!
Wall Ball - 4 lbs
CrossFit Sit-ups - as rx'd! - struggled from 30 on
Jump Rope - as rx'd!

Another great workout for the week!  Sweating up a storm!!  :)
