I know there are CrossFit classes at the YMCA. Beyond those specific classes, does the Y allow CrossFit workouts out on the regular weight floor? Can you do wallballs and power snatches, kettlebell swings and box jumps, etc there?

The Y’s weight floor is really not set up for CrossFit specific workouts. They have limited CrossFit equipment and if they do, they have no place to do the exercise (eg. wallballs). I don’t know if they have a policy that states that you can’t do CrossFit WODs on the weight floor but I’m sure that an employee would have to come talk to you should you try something out of the ordinary workout regimen that the Y normally sees. To not be disturbed and get the best CrossFit workout, I’d recommend taking a class as these are specifically set up with the correct equipment and space.

45lb x3, 50lbs x3, 55lbs x 3, 60lbs x3, 65lbs x 3, 67.5lbs x 3, 70lbs x2 (failure)…
plus an awful rendition of tabata squats (bottom to bottom)

same ShoulderPress workout as Chantal 🙂 I just didn’t keep track of the increments working my way up to failure. I was able to press 63 lbs 3 times and failed on 65.5lbs.
Then there was AMRounds in 5 min of Knees to Elbows (5) and sits ups (15) – got to 5 rounds.
Happy to be home from “Wet Sydney”, Australia!

Same as Chantal but got up to 2 at 67.5 failure on the 3rd. Knees to Elbows and sit ups reps got to 7 rounds.
