Once a month the fine folks at Crossfit Central put on a free community workout under the Town Lake/MoPac bridge.
These free workouts are open to anybody, scaled to every fitness level, and are intended to introduce new people the the Crossfit lifestyle.
This morning, more than 100 people showed up at 8:30 — despite the 40 degree chill.
We were split into groups of ~25 people, and each group had at least Crossfit coaches working with their group to teach the proper techniques and to push you through the workout.
After an intense warm up, the group’s workout of the day was:
5 rounds of:
- 15 push ups
- 15 kettle bell swings (16kg)
- 10 med ball squat cleans (18 lb)
Loved this workout, as all three of these movements are good ones for me — and I always enjoy the chance to improve my clean technique.
A lot of people got a first hand taste of a typical Crossfit bootcamp style WoD, and thousands more stopped to watch from the bridge and jogging path. Watching 110+ people doing deep squats in unison is pretty cool.
