Easier Day

In at 10am. Feeling a bit fatigued from the strength work and WODs yesterday, but Kevin and I planned for an easier day today anyway.

Warm-up

  • 5:00 Air Dyne (easy pace)
  • PVC Pass-thrus

Strength

5 Rounds

  • MAX Pull-ups (strict)
  • 90s Rest
  • MAX Ring Dips (strict)
  • 90s Rest

Originally we were going do to this as a 10:00 EMOM, alternating between the two, but after the 2nd round of pull-ups it was clear that wouldn’t work. So we started taking more rest after the 2nd round. I managed 12-5-7-7-6 on the pull-ups and 14-10-11-10-10 on the dips. Much harder than expected and I was breathing like I just finished a metcon.

OLY

15:00 EMOM

  • Power Snatch
  • Snatch

I used 95# for the first 3 sets, then 115# for 7, 125# three times, and finished with 135# for the last two rounds. Got it all on video except for the first set of 95#. Was feeling pretty good about a few things, but still have a lot to work on. Need to start doing a lot more Olympic lifting like this.

Here’s the rounds of 135# in slow motion.

WOD

2k Row

My goal was to keep a 1:50/500m pace, which I was able to do for 600-700m and then it was a struggle just to keep it at 1:53 or so. Pushed it for the last 200m or so to finish in 7:23.8, beating my old mark of 7:38 back in December.

I'm searching for the perfect golf swing and my first hole-in-one. I'm addicted to CrossFit. I work for Automattic.

  1. nice WOD day there. Are you pre-loading your arms before pulling the bar off the ground for the snatch? Probably because it was slow motion I missed it. Who does your programming?
