Now That's Nutts

Nutts, as prescribed, is a CrossFit workout consisting of:

10 Handstand push-ups
250 pound Deadlift, 15 reps
25 Box jumps, 30 inch box
50 Pull-ups
100 Wallball shots, 20 pounds, 10'
200 Double-unders
Run 400 meters with a 45lb plate

I went to CrossFit Metropolis this morning to try to recreate Saturday's pull-up triumph.  Sundays are just an open gym day, so it seemed like a good time to do that.  After playing with trying to kip for a bit, I decided to work on my rowing.  I rowed 1000 meters, and only then found out that some of the guys were going to do Nutts.  I figured I'd join them, with some modifications. 

I used a 95 lb barbell for deadlifts, an 18" box for the jumps, a band to assist my pull-ups, a 10lb ball and a 15 lb plate.  I also substituted 50 kettlebell swings in for the double-unders because mine are still pretty bad. 

So, was it Nutts?  I suppose not.  But it was nuts.  And I am tired.

Good night!

Keep up the hardwork. I seriously get motivated by folks who step up their workout game. I think it helps keep all of us going. Congrats.
