So.. If you guys don’t know me well enough, I LOVE BURPEES. Real fucking talk. On to the workout.
Pressing exercises aren’t really my strong point :( I set a 3RM and I’ll work my way up from there.
That WOD. That freakin’ WOD. For those of you that don’t know what KB Taters are, click here to see how it’s done. The Rx was actually #55 (Not written on the board), but since we ran out of #55 KB’s, I either would have to use #45 or #70. LOL, like I’d lower the weight. Bring on the heavy, bitches. Out of the whole day, only one guy finished the entire thing under 15 minutes (14:49). Beast.
That closer was kinda fun actually. No cramping or anything so I enjoyed getting out of breath again. ;)
Time completed: Incomplete(9 Squat Cleans + 7 Pullups)
Sled Pushes #180
So freaking brutal on the legs, especially after doing a ton of squatting yesterday. The form was sloppy as hell on the power cleans :( God, don’t even get me started on the WOD. The Rx’d weight was actually #185 haha. I definitely could’ve been under 15 minutes if I didn’t rest as much :(
For the closer, the minimum was at least 5.. Fuck that I did one and my calves AND quads were so close to cramping. I mean, I didn’t stop midway.. I finished the damn 40 yards and called it a day.
Exhausting.. would be one word of many to describe today.
Oh boy, did it feel good to get a sweat on. I even left my sweater on as long as I could take it just to get that heat built up.
Back squats were great. After looking over the videos I recorded, I don’t think I went as low as I wanted to/should have gone, which makes me sad, but it’ll give me something to work on. 3RM was established (280.5 lbs.) and I feel pretty damn good about that.
That WOD.. Oh my. They did strict press/push press for strength most of the days I’ve missed in my box the past week.. And the Rx weight was 135. So of course, me being my stubborn self, decided to keep it at that. Lmao, I had to break that shit down into sets of 2-3. Back squats = UNBROKEN. That shit was easy. It was probably the easiest one to do. Toes to bar.. Meh. I gotta’ work on that rhythm. Bear crawls? I fucking hate it.
I typed a lot.. Oops. Good WOD though, good WOD. Hopefully I’ll be able to go tomorrow.
Finally, I’m able to come to the box and get a good one in. And of all days, it was deadlifts. :) :) :) Yeah, I was that excited haha.
If I had more time I definitely would have been able to up my 3RM, but #315 is a good base.
That WOD was brutal. I didn’t think the front squats would be doing that much damage, but damn. The T2B’s killed me because I can’t get a rhythm down yet (I do one, then stabilize my body from swinging, and repeat). Lol, pullups I bullshitted most of the time ‘attempting’ to do butterflies. A few people said it looked good, but it’s definitely something I want to perfect.
