Double Duty Weekend

I walked 18 holes of golf last night and afterwards my legs and low back were shot. Exhausted! Went in for the 9am class. I felt like I made good progress with my snatch yesterday so might as well keep it going with the clean & jerk today.

Warm-up

  • 200m Run
  • 200m Run Backwards
  • 400m Run
  • 200m Run Backwards
  • 200m Run
  • 5 Deadlifts (135#)
  • 5 Deadlifts (185#)

The backwards runs are fun!

WOD

4 Rounds

  • 200m Run
  • 24 Lunges (12 each side)
  • 12 Deadlifts (185#)
  • 6 Lateral Burpees Over Bar
  • 1m Rest

One of the easier ones to be honest. I’m sure my legs will feel it later, but the entire thing only took 12:01, with 3 minutes of that being rest time. My rounds were 2:13, 2:12, 2:14, and 2:18. I screwed up counting the over the bar burpees a couple of times so the overall time is messed up a little. Not sure what happened in that last round because I thought it was my fastest run of the bunch. I guess the deadlifts and burpees must have been a lot slower. Other than that, very consistent though.

Finisher

  • 150 AbMat Sit-ups

I decided to do the first 100 as fast as possible to try to break my PR and I smashed it, with a time of 3:02, beating my previous best of 3:34. Took a minute rest and then busted out the last 50 unbroken in 1:41, which was a lot more of a struggle.

Headed home for some food and then back to Full Strength for OLY at noon. Warmed up with a 500m row, PVC pass-thrus and around-the-worlds. Then we also did some progressions with the PVC pipe to loosen up and get some feel.

Snatch Work

We did the following, working up in weight by doing doubles or singles.

  • Snatch Deadlift to the knee
  • Snatch Deadlift to the knee, pause, Snatch

Did some doubles at 45#, 75#, and 95#. Went up to 115# and 125# for singles. Since I had just worked up to heavy singles yesterday morning, I didn’t want to do that again, especially working from the knee. I tried to concentrate on technique, which is slowly getting better.

Snatch Balance

These felt solid today. Started off with doubles at 125# and then 145#. Didn’t feel comfortable dropping the weight back on my back after that so I switched to singles and dropped the weight to the floor after my rep. I went 155#, 165#, and 175#. That’s 20# heavier than I’ve done before and even 10# heavier than I’ve ever done for an OHS. Makes me feel good that if I can get the bar up there on a snatch, I can finish it off. I had the first attempt at 175#, but lost a little stability in the bottom and the weight came forward so I bailed. Nailed it without much trouble for a couple of singles after that and called it a day.
