I hardly blog anymore

Saturday, May 26th

Workout of the Day:

Three rounds for time of:
50 Double-unders
40 Sit-ups
30 Medicine ball cleans, 20 pound ball
20 Pull-ups

Take 15 minutes to set a baseline for the 20 rep Back Squat.

Take 15 minutes to set a baseline for 2RM weighted Pull ups.

My time: 12:30

Back Squat: 85#PR

2RM Pull Up: 20#

My performance on the metcon was "eh." I didn't go! go! go!, I just went. The med ball cleans were gross. And this was the first time I had done pull ups in a WOD in over 2 months so I could only eek out 5 at a time. My grip was failing. It's like I have bitch-hands all over again. 

The backsquats were awesome. I attempted 20 reps at 95#s but knew I couldn't sustain at my 10th rep and decided to back off weight. I hear that we're going to be testing this modal domain about once a month. Fuckin' cool. 

I didn't not PR on my weighted pull up. The last time I did 20#s at like 3 reps. I couldn't even do 1 rep at 25#s. My arms were fried at that point after the first wod.

Five rounds for time
135 45 lb Power Clean, 10 reps
15 Wall ball shots, 20/14 @ 6#

15 minute cutoff

I was super pleased with my performance. I did take 3 breaks which kinda piss me off right now, but I was definitely gassed. I went pretty hard. I love power cleans. 

Tuesday, May 15th

3 rounds for time of:
50 Lateral jumps, 12 inches
25 Dumbbell Overhead Walking Lunges, Right Arm @ 15#
10 Right Arm DB Snatches

I don't remember my time. I think it was 13:26 or something in that range.

The Chief

Workout of the Day:
Max rounds in 3 minutes of:
135 45 pound Power cleans, 3 reps
6 One-armed Push-ups on the Wall
9 Squats
Rest 1 minute. Repeat for a total of 5 cycles.

R1: 4 + 4 Push Ups
R2: 4 + 3 Squats
R3: 4
R4: 4 + 8 Squats
R5: 5 + 4 Push Ups

Things I realize: 
1.) Even though I'm not training regularly (one WOD a week, max, mostly low intensity), I haven't lost my stamina/endurance. I definitely had more gas in my tank at the end of the WOD. 

2.) My right side is hella strong. 

3.) Wall Push ups are deceivingly difficult. 

4.) That coaching has made my form/mechanics ON POINT

5.) I can do strict L-sit Pull ups!!!! On the RINGS, too, whassup!!! 

6.) Even though I haven't trained any heavy barbell work in almost 2 months, I'm still maintaining my strength. I deadlifted 185# 1 rep today and it felt frickin' easy. I can't wait to start lifting 225!!! Which is my next goal.
