Headed to a friend's gym for a workout, that was stocked with lots of weights and a barbell - pleasant surprise!
Did a workout with them, introduced Barbell Thrusters [.mov][.wmv] & Push Presses [.wmv] to them. Going overhead is definitely not easy! After the workout I tried out some Overhead Squats, slowly getting better despite the acute pain in my shoulders since I bumped the weights of the barbell at home from 20kg to 30kg.
Everyone else in the gym was either running slowly on the threadmill or on the stationary bike, while watching TV. Going overhead (while standing in between all of them) surely invited curious stares.
If my shoulders are feeling right, I'll be hitting out some Barbell Thrusters tomorrow evening. Possibly 3 rounds with 30-20-10 reps (if I can take it). If not I'll modify it to Push Presses.
On a sidenote - music can make a difference in your workouts, and remember to choose wisely! Slow, sappy songs do not work for WOD's. Go fast and hard. I get some Weezer and Simple Plan on my iPod or laptop blasters to get me going furious.
And oh shit, I have this crazy urge to workout now (!) but I think it'd be better laying off the shoulders for the day/night.
First day at work tomorrow. Like how Eat & Train mentioned - its very importatnt to start the first days of work right - and we mean that I should come home to do some Cross Fit workouts after work. And indeed I will, plus from tomorrow onwards I will have pre-cooked and frozen chicken fillets in the freezer, all for post workouts.
