Why My Forearms Are Numb!
You guys should know my knew LOVE for CROSSFIT by now right? Well I am addicted!
Last night at Crossfit we did a BRUTAL workout.
- 3 laps around the building
- 500 Meter Row
- 25 Jumping Jacks
- 10 Inch Worms
I used 20 lb dumbbells for the shoulders to overhead which seemed like a perfect weight = 40 lbs total.
It took me 11:05 to finish which was good for me! Coach said to aim for 10-12 minutes so I was right on target! The Pull Ups were the hardest Part for me. I used a blue band to help me. I am learning to how Kip but I still have to use a band for the workouts.
Can you guess why my forearms felt numb after the workout yet???
Let me tell you… KETTLEBELL SWINGS!
The main stabilizers during the swing are the core, shoulders and hamstrings, so basically it is a full body workout! You can’t beat that. Combined with pull ups, well need I say more? I could barely make a fist with my hands after because my forearms actually felt numb!

Make sure you dont eat right from the box or bag- measure it out! If I eat straight from the bag I will never stop!
QUEST PROTEIN BARS
I had the strawberry cheesecake today for my afternoon snack which was actually pretty good. I saved this one for last, along with a couple of others because I wasn’t sure If I was going to like it. Strawberry protein bar? I just didn’t know about it!?!
Lately I’ve been wanting to redecorate like MY WHOLE HOUSE…I guess that happens when it’s about to be spring time and I want new fresh things 🙂 Although it’s still in the 40’s here and yesterday was officially the first day of spring!
