Well, no excuse this time! Travel with iPad… still no better. What can I say? Life is busy 😉 For the most part the good kind of busy and moving in the right direction in that parts that aren’t.

Time – ? No idea and doesn’t really count cause although I tried several times I just couldn’t lock out the last two HSPU!
2 Rounds strict pull-ups, max reps.
Happy with my clean and jerk 🙂 Squatted the cleans and split the jerks. Matched my 1RM jerk but that wasn’t my focus. I don’t feel like a newborn giraffe when doing a split jerk so much anymore. Win! lol!! This was quite possibly one of the hardest WODs I’ve done. I was excited to go cause I dig handstand push-ups, but the very first rep was a rude awakening after all the upper body abuse so far this week AND the weighted overhead step-ups! Ok… 2 abmats maybe? Still rough!! Haha love it 🙂
Tues. Oct. 4th:
Amanda and I have been trying to make it to an Olympic lifting class for a bit now and finally got there!! According to my Fitbit it didn’t qualify as a workout, but I don’t agree at all. Neither do my quads and triceps… Anyways, so cool! Carson, the coach, is amazing! I have some stuff to work on to make my squats better and we broke down parts of the jerk that set the stage for bigger and better things on Wednesday. Can’t wait to get to another of these on Saturday to work on the snatch!! 🙂
Work up to a heavy 10 rep set. Focus on a consistent pace/good form.
Pause Split Jerk – 85
Back Squat – 115
Push Press – 65

* Unbroken or burpees! 1 burpee for every time you break a set! 6 burpees!!
Time – 13:33
After more than a year… PR’d my deadlift!!! 😀 My game plan was if it feels good, just keep adding weight to the bar and DON’T do the math till the end! Too often the weight gets heavy and I psych myself out. My plan worked! Round 10 I lifted my old 1RM, round 11 I PR’d, and round 12 I PR’s again! 🙂 And quite honestly, I’m not sure it was a true max… but there was still a WOD to do.
