We have been doing a lot of back squats in CrossFit. My old best was 125# for 5 reps. I have been working hard at the workouts and my new maximum for 5 reps is 145#. Woo Hoo! It is hard to up your max.
I find that it takes quite a few sessions to feel like I am getting any better at all, but then all of a sudden, I am better. I guess it as they say, practice makes perfect.
We have been running more as the new year is moving forward and between that and CrossFit, I am feeling really good. I love getting out there and getting my blood pumping and pushing myself to do things that are hard.
Now, let’s get something straight, I’m not totally into working out with no other things going on in my life. I want to workout and then do the other stuff. One 1 hour workout is all I want 5 days a week. That leaves me time to rest and recover and do other things that I like.
How about you? Do you workout? Do you feel better when you workout? Do you feel healthier when you workout?
