Game plan update – I’m still working to figure out what needs to be done and how to make it happen. Pretty sure the minute Jen said I need to eat more my stomach was right on board. I’ve been hungrier than ever since lol! I may need to raise chickens somewhere cause I’m eating like double what I used to. One success so far, I haven’t even looked at a Quest bar since Friday. Peanut butter is a work in progress, but I’ll get there. I decided that’s the lesser of 3 evils and I have a partner in crime when it comes to peanut butter from the jar with a spoon…
Wed. Aug. 10:
With a running clock, every minute perform 1 lift and add 10lbs.
Start with an empty barbell and Snatch for as long as possible.
Once you cannot snatch the weight, Clean for as long as possible.
Once you cannot clean the weight, Deadlift for as long as possible.
Max weights – 85 / 110 / 245
Just mentioned to Amanda Monday night that I feel like I haven’t seen the snatch in a workout for ever! Today felt good. I loved the format of this workout and even though I kinda had hopes to PR something, it wasn’t happening today but at least I came very close. Matched my current snatch 1RM and fell 5lbs shy of my deadlift 1RM. The dead was almost 30 minutes in, so all good. First attempt at 245 I could swear the plates were glued to the ground! Shot Dave a WTF?!?! look, he responded “CHALK!!”, so I chalked up and lifted the bar. It wasn’t pretty, certainly wasn’t fast, but I got it up.
Tues. Aug. 9:
Morning WOD with my girl at CFC🙂
Buy in – 3 round:
8 back squats #125
5 front squats #105
10 jumping lunges (per leg)
WOD – for time:
30- KBS #16kg
Time – 15:25
When I first read this one I wasn’t super-pumped, but I totally liked it! Third day of testing Jen’s “timing” methods and the squats felt really good. Maybe the sweet potato helped? Not out of bed early enough for the full 2 hours pre-WOD, but I guess by the time we warmed up and actually started lifting it wasn’t too far off. The WOD was a sweat fest :) Kept all of the KBS unbroken except for the last round which I had to split to 15/15 cause my hands were slipping. Also getting into the habit of American (overhead) swings where I always used to only go to eye-level. My shoulder was angry the first few times but seems to be getting over it.
Mon. Aug. 8:
AMRAP 14:00 Minutes
7- Muscle Ups (transitions)
50- Wallballs 20/14
100- Double Unders (200 singles)
Result – 2 rounds + 25 wallballs (finished 3rd round after time expired)
15.3 flashback?? Except the scaled version eliminated the muscle ups all together and left me pretty wrecked for like 2 days. So… 150 wallballs was enough today and skipped the “balls to the wall” effort level the Open brings out😉
Sat. Aug. 6:
CFC Partner WOD – for time:
Lunges (per leg)
**Both work at same time. Ex. partner A does 21 wallballs while partner B does 21 burpees, then switch. When both have completed 21’s, both move on to 15’s, etc.
Time – 25:40
Pushed Amanda a bit with this one :) No scheduled rest and when your partner is a speed demon through pretty much every movement there really is NO rest :p What goes around comes around, I know. One day she’ll return the favour.
