Karen got my legs shakin’

Had a very short window to hit the gym today (also worked as a business meet/greet) so I chose to give Karen a go.  Karen is an infamous CrossFit workout where you perform 150 Wall ball shots for time.  Official time was 7:11, was in and out of the gym in about 15 minutes.  I have never had my vastus lateralis (quad on the outside) seize up like that and I am currently enjoying a nice ‘CrossFit cough.’  Cannot wait to take Karen out for another spin in the future.

Wall balls are an excellent movement and simple enough for a novice to perform correctly.  Below is a video of 2008? CrossFit Games Winner, Jason Khalipa tackling Karen.  Guy is a BEAST.
