I’ve been feeling a little lethargic today. Maybe double workouts yesterday weren’t a good idea or maybe I should have really taken a true rest day on Sunday. I went in for the 5:30pm class.
- 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 Russian KBS (35#)
- 150m Run
5×5 Power Cleans
Sweet! Been awhile since I’ve attempted to go heavy. My form has improved a lot in the last couple of months so I was really excited about this.
- 5 @ 65#
- 5 @ 115#
- 5 @ 135#
- 5 @ 145#
- 5 @ 155#
- 5 @ 175#
I was really feeling good on the cleans. I set my 1RM of 185# exactly 5 months ago. That’s a long time to go without testing some heavy weight. I wouldn’t say the reps at 175# were easy, but I finished feeling really good about them. I was actually able to get the bar back to the ground under control by back tracing my steps on every single clean today. Whenever I’ve gone to 135# or higher I’ve had to drop the bar.
- 15 MB Squat Cleans (20# MB)
- 15 HR Burpees
I finished in 9:23. Did the burpees with a hand release to get in the habit of them before Sunday’s competition. There was only one rep where I almost forgot, but I caught myself as I was rising up from the ground.
- 100 AbMat Sit-ups
I did these in 4:03.
Funny how some days you don’t feel great but then CrossFit lifts you up.
