CrossFit: April 9, 2014

Warm-Up: 300m row, pointers, shuttle runs

Skill: Push Press – sets of 3 working on form before weight. I made it to 75#! For whatever reason this movement has never made sense to me in my head and therefore didn’t make sense to my body. I finally got it straight in my brain about locking out my arms at the bottom of my second dip (so I don’t have to go so far to get under the bar when the weight gets heavy). It’s amazing how much easier it was!!

WOD: RFT of 15-12-9-6-3 Power cleans (75#) and 100m sprint – 8:45. My cleans felt really good and coach even commented about them! 🙂 Sometimes I’m such a 6 year old because I really crave positive feedback. It was great to get that on a Wednesday morning.

Some days it’s about just making it out of bed on time. Today is one of those days. I went to bed too late because I was watching Scandal with a friend of mine and we were drinking wine. That combination plus it’s Friday and I don’t want to burn out for the open workout tomorrow meant my efforts at the box this morning were sub-par.

Warm-Up: hollow rocks, spealler rolls

Skill: Clean and Jerks – worked at 65#

WOD: 18-15-12 of power cleans (75#) and pistols (on a box for me) – 12:45

CrossFit: March 21, 2014

Warm-Up: 3 rounds of 10 jane fonda’s, 2 shuttle runs

Skill: Strict press to find a 1 rep max and then pushpress to find a 1 rep max using a 3x3x3x1x1 scheme – I kept my same strict press max at 85# but my pushpress max is now 110#! 🙂

WOD: 15min AMRAP of 9 DL (105#), 12 T2B, and 15 box jumps (20″)

I only finished three rounds but that was because I was trying to learn T2B.

CrossFit: March 12, 2014

Warm-Up: 300m row, 2 shuttle runs, 10 kick-ups

Skill: Dead Lift 3 x 5 working towards 90% – I actually PR’ed it at 145# because I wasn’t paying attention/forgot what my last PR was (I was still a little sleepy haha)

WOD: Karen – 150 WB (14#) for time – 9:09!!

We were supposed to row 500m when we were done and do some midline work but I was beat! I’ll probably do some sit ups tomorrow morning after I run to make up for it. I just didn’t have anything in me to give…
