Monday, June 5, 2023

CrossFit Louvre (Paris)


Warm Up

Plate hops
Plate air squat
Plate burpees
Plate skaters

Heavy Back Squat


I went 135, 155 and 175 and still lit my left hammy up on the first set.


3 Rounds of
30 seconds goblet squat
30 seconds broad jump
30 seconds rest

Nice box close to hotel.  The entry was on street level with the workout spaces one level down and bathrooms one level below that.  It was tight quarters with 24 people in class sharing 3 squat stations.  About 18 guys and 6 gals.  Coaching was good with reminder to stay back on heels.  Drop in was 30 euros plus 3 euros for warm Fit-Aid.  They did not have any XL shirts.

Everybody got name tags at the start.

Walk on treadmill

This was a private globo style gym with Pilates and a boxing studio.  It was much cleaner with a bunch of rules.  More machines and fewer free weights.

CrossFit Amsterdam


Warm Up

200 meter run
Inch worms
Shoulder taps
Push-ups - slow decent, snake up
Pull-ups - scap pull-ups

Partner WOD (they do this every Saturday)


30 minute AMRAP

30 DU - scaled to 60 singles
15 PU - scaled to banded, then jumping
15 Push-up - scaled to knee push-ups

Peter was kind enough to partner up with me and we were equally paced.  We each finished 5 rounds.

Directly into Max Deadlift in 5 minutes

Bars were pre-loaded and I went from 60 kg to 120 kg.

Loved this box.  Founded in 2009 and the oldest box in Amsterdam, they had a huge space with pull-up bars along the walls, cool graffiti on the walls, strongman stones, parallettes, parallel bars and a really good vibe.  Big class with about 30 people.  They did have an XL shirt and I grabbed one.  20 euro drop in, 30 euro shirt, 3 euro ice cold Fit-Aid.
