Pushed a Jeep 220 Yards for a CrossFit Workout Today

Elephant pushing a jeepToday’s CrossFit workout was kind of fun! In addition to the usual strength training, we did some conditioning work that included pushing a Jeep. I don’t think I’ve pushed a car or truck since high school, when we either got stuck in the mud or ran out of gas. Who would think that I would do that again someday as a workout that I pay for? Life is funny…

Warmup:

  • Short jog
  • Frankensteins, Spidermans, Butt-kickers
  • Tabata air squats
  • Stretching

Strength Training:

  • 5.3.1 Front Squat for Week 3 of the cycle
  • I really need to work on my flexibility. I’ve lost some in the last few months.

Conditioning:

  • Flip a big tire over and over again for 200 feet
  • Carry two 32 Kg (141 lbs total) kettlebells for a “Farmer’s walk” of 400 feet
  • 45 lbs Overhead Plate Lunge for 200 feet
  • Hold two sledgehammers and whack a tire 100 times (side to side and overhead strikes)
  • Push a Jeep for 220 yards
