one day it'll all make sense.

competitive? who me? ;)

Mon. Jan. 11:

Part 1. Every Minute on the Minute for 10 Minutes: 3- Front Squats  #135
Part 2. 3 Rounds:
10- Bench Press #135/#95  #75 2 rounds, #85 last round
20- Abmat Sit-Ups
10- Bent Over Rows #135/#95  #55
20- Hip Extensions

After 2 1/2 ish years of playing this game with consistency and rarely giving it less than 100%, it still manages to completely kick my ass some days.  I guess that’s the point of “constantly varied, high intensity”.  Anyways, I’m sitting writing this with ice packs draped across my traps and quads after Monday’s ass kicking. Partnering with my trini friend always guarantees a competitive push. Love working with that girl cause we’re pretty close when it comes to 1RM for squats and stuff, and communicate pretty seamless in partner WODs. We’ve been squatting a lot lately it seems, so I didn’t hesitate to load the bar pretty heavy. Post-WOD my legs were tired but otherwise felt good, then Tuesday was the reality check! My brilliant idea to take my front squat 1RM, strip off 10lbs, and perform 30 reps maybe wasn’t that brilliant after all.  The struggle is real :p

Tues. Jan. 12:

5 Rounds:
5- Strict Handstand Pushups
10- Power Cleans #135/#95  #75
15- Burpees
20- Kettlebell Swings 24kg/16kg
25- Wallballs   #12 4 rounds, #14 last round
3 Minute Rest after each round completed

I don’t sandbag WODs.  Don’t get me wrong, I often scale the weight, but never aim to make things easy.  Today my entire body was angry about Monday, and on top of that I woke up not feeling great.  Don’t know why, although I spent the rest of the day shivering so I know something was off.  I made it to round 4 of this spicy little dose when Coach Dave noticed I had grabbed a 12lb wallball and called me on it.  Fair enough.  We’re less than 2 weeks from the in-house comp which I’m signed up for so I shouldn’t be scaling a wallball.  Since I wasn’t feeling well I felt justified, but I grabbed a 14lb for my last round.  To my credit, I set a plan from the beginning to complete the cleans, KBS and wallballs unbroken.  I stuck with my plan till the last round too.  The text I received in the evening after SP completed this monster – “Worst WOD ever.”  Yes, pretty awful!  What does it tell you when the burpees are seen as a “break”?
