Do your workouts make you nervous?

Mine do.

Today was my third time to go to CrossFitMNL and like the other day, I felt butterflies in my stomach when I thought about what we might do today. I wonder if I'll always feel this way about the WODs.

Anyway, today's WOD was Santiago. We had to do 7 rounds of the following (with a 20 minute cap):

- 18 hang squat cleans (I did a modified version using a 15 lb bar)
- 18 pull-ups (I used the green band)
- 10 power cleans (I did a modified version using an 8 kg kettlebell)
- 10 hand stand push ups (I did a modified version kneeling on a box)

There were 4 of us in the group and no one was able to do 7 rounds. How can anyone do 7 rounds of all that in 20 minutes?! I was able to do 3 rounds, and I had it easy compared to the others.


  1. That's great Laya! It's nice to see that your are continuing your efforts (I did not run since this summer, shame on me).

  2. Thanks, Ruben! I hadn't really been very active before I started going to Crossfit. Let's continue to be healthy! :)

  3. I've read about this and wanted to try it. I didn't know this is already in Pinas. Sounds challenging but fun. :-D

  4. Hi, Jean! It's both fun and difficult. Try it! There's one in Libis and another at the Fort.

    p.s. Kailan na ang Christmas party? ;)
