Yankee Swap WOD

Merry Christmas from CrossFit Moncton – VIDEO

Everyone that comes will select a number and then choose a ‘present’. Upon opening it, you’ll find a workout. If you were #2, you have the option of switching with #1. Number 3 can switch with 1 or 2, and so on. Person #1 will be allowed to switch with anyone…so you’d better hope to get #1!

    Great job by everyone this morning, some tough WOD’s I’m happy I didn’t have to do…the privileges of having #1.

  5. That’s such a funny video!! Great job Kevin. 🙂

    Great picture, Martine!

    What a fun morning at the gym! I love Yankee Swap day!

    I got: ‘Diane’

    Deadlifts (60% of 1rm = 120#)
    Handstand pushups (Used 45# plate + mat)

    T = 11:38

    That was my first time doing handstand pushups – they were fun and I didn’t struggle with them nearly as much as I thought I would!

    I was remembering last year when we did the yankee swap, how intimidated I was by all the workouts…and terrified I was going to get one with rowing! I must have progressed because none of them gave me anxiety this morning when people were reading them! 🙂

    1. Good job on your WOD this morning Amanda 🙂 I love yankee swap day too, but I won’t lie, it still makes me nervous… Actually, I still get nervous before every workout I do! What the bleep is up with that!!??

  6. Feliz Navidad!! 🙂
