Workout #2 - Strength - Back Test
Added another new Crossfit box visit to my list - Crossfit Rising. I had considered hitting the morning class but thought it would be better if I tested my back with a lift later in the day. I had a hard time finding this place, having actually drove by it 2-3 times. It was behind a residential house which I didnt expect. Only 3 guys in the class and they were very welcoming. They let me know that their coach was away but I was welcome to join. The WOD was 3X5 Backsquat. I decided just to get some work in and not go overboard on the weight just to see how my back felt. That said legs were taxed more than I thought they would be from the mornings beep test.
135(5), 185(5), 225(5), 245(5), 245(5) Clearly not very heavy but the back didnt hurt at all.
