Did not get a chance to work out on Thursday due to various meetings, but got to Crossfit on Friday. Have to say that I really like it! Since I am a beginner, I was given a fairly, simple easy workout. My workout was as follows:

warm-up doing back extensions, air squats, sit-ups, shoulder stretches

4 rounds:

200 meter run
5 pull-ups (used band)
10 push-ups
15 air squats

My quads were SORE the next day. Went for an easy swim on Saturday and did the following:

700 warm-up

4 x 25 chest presses (fly kick with pull buoys held out in front)

4 x 50 fly drill - 3 rt, 3 lt, 3 full on 1:15

4 x 100 back drill - 25 double-arm/25 rt arm/25 lt arm/25 full on 2:00

100 easy

    Your crossfit doesn't require you to take a week long intro class that teaches you all the exercises?

    Not a set class to learn the exercises. He did say for the first few classes that he would go over each exercise with me. He has so far and has made sure I had good form before I started.
