‘Tis the Season for Thanks and Celebration at CrossFit City of Lakes

As we near the end of 2021, holiday celebrations are in full swing in the CrossFit community. While many affiliates celebrate with lavish parties where they get to see their gym family in fancy clothes for maybe the only time all year, others get in the spirit with festive workouts like one of the many versions of the 12 Days of Christmas. CrossFit City of Lakes in Golden Valley, Minnesota, paid its members extra appreciation this year with a holiday party and brunch.

Almost 5 mins less than compare to, but last year I did it in the wrong order starting with the wall walk each time-game changer to go the other way.

counted the walking lunges as 1 rep each leg, but the jumping lunges as both legs = 1. any insights to which way is correct?


27:16.


compare to 28:00, same scale.

I did 5 total lunges and 9 total lunges each time. Unless it specifies 5 each leg or 9 each leg I always perform the workout that way. It also doesn't say to alternate so if you are wild you could do each lunge with the same side really, which ever way gets the most work done the quickest and safest (technique).

As Rx. Completed in 23:15. I did this one early after running the dog outside hurrying to get it done before we opened presents.

First time trying this one. It’s a fun mix up. I did no warm ups or real stretching. I was super stiff, surprisingly so on the pistols, but all the other movements felt fine and easy.

not sure why the pistols felt so awkward and why I was so stiff but I did no warm ups and didn’t really prep for that so that could be it?

As rx’d, 16:06 (PR).


2+ minute PR from last year.  Was able to push through the jumping lunges and jumping squats without breaks this time.  Broke HSPUs the same (7-4).  All the rest unbroken, except for broad jumps where I had to turn around (did this in Mom’s basement).  Also had a better setup, so not as much walking

around to get back to the wall.

27:27 as rx’d in a hospital parking lot because my gf won’t let me do it in her apartment courtyard ;) Took it slow but it still felt hard. No warmup. Active recovery week. Usually 3 weeks behind but this seemed appropriate today.

Globo scale: If you don't have a wall for hs work do 20 feet bear crawl and hspu piked on a chair or bed, or heavy dumbbell presses. If you don't have pistols you can sub to bulgarian split squats.

Champions Club Scaling Notes


RANT

Man... they got me Mike! A calendar was this year's surprise gift. And it wasn't enough to just have Chrisfacewedding on the front cover, but they photoshopped me onto some rather interesting pictures to go with each month. Harry Potter was one. The Easter Bunny. A very suggestive picture of cupid. The JJ McCarthy and Franz Wagner ones were kinda cool, though.


WORKOUT THEMES

Something to commemorate a special occasion that can be done in about 3 square feet of space.


ASSUMED

Your parents/family will allow you to get footprints or scuff marks on the walls.


MAIN DECISION

Mindlessly sludge through the thing as listed to say you did it, or scale it for a purpose?


TECHNIQUE SCALE

Pick two of the following and do an AMRAP in 15 of: [candlestick, broad jump, handstand push-up, pistol]


CONSISTENCY SCALE

Pick two of the following and do an AMRAP in 15 of: [wall walk, push-up, jumping lunge, jumping squat]


INTENSITY SCALE

Pick two of the following and do an AMRAP in 15 of: [burpee, squat, lunge, sit-up]


MY STUFF

Played around with pistols and candlesticks as my couplet.


GENERAL FEAR LEVEL: 7
