On empty

Three rounds for reps of:
155/115 pound Squat cleans, 1 minute
20′ Shuttle sprints (20′ forward + 20′ backwards = 1 rep), 1 minute
245/195 pound Deadlifts, 1 minute
Burpees, 1 minute
155/115 pound Jerks, 1 minute

Just wanted to try my hand at Snatch Balance. I haven't done this movement since my the early summer, prior to my back injury. It was a good warm up to Santora. 

OMG, what an ass kicker. It's like Fight Gone Bad but way fuckin' worse. I'm happy with my score. I'm glad that I did 55# vs. 65#. There was no way I would could have done 65# cleans into the seconde round, my legs were just killed... After 400m walking lunge then the Front Squat workout on Tuesday... my legs are still fried and on the mend. During the shuttle sprints my legs felt so heavy; running backwards felt good, it was the running forward that was difficult. 

The burpees were actually not bad. You just kept moving and pushed up and that's it. I did well each round, it kind of felt like rest. 

The worst worst worst was the Jerks. At that point of the round you are just sooooo gassed the idea od cleaning the bar and putting overhead is sickening. I would only do like 2 at a time and would have to dump the bar. Of course, before the start of the WOD the strategy was to rest the bar at the rack position and not drop the bar so you wouldn't have to clean it again, well all strategy gets thrown out the door when you're just trying to survive. 

Here's how the work broke down each round.
