Friday Night Throwdown

Got another solid 9 hours of sleep last night. In at 10am.

Warm-up

  • 300m Run
  • PVC Pass-thrus

Olympic Lifting

  • 7:00 45# Snatch Position Drills
  • 2:00 Rest
  • E20S 2:00 95# Snatch
  • 3:00 Rest
  • E30S 3:00 125# Snatch
  • 3:00 Rest
  • EMOM 7:00 155# Snatch

I missed the first rep at 155# simply because my head wasn’t in it and I wasn’t ready for it yet. It’s only 10# under my max snatch so it was a little intimidating to go at for the first time getting my hip into it. After that it felt solid though so I kept going longer than the planned 4 minutes. I’ve definitely never done 6 snatches of 155# in a day before. 165# next week and then on to the PR zone!

  • Unbroken DU

I finally finished this fucker today! 13:35 with only a handful of misses. I had a miss at 49 on my set of 50, which sucked. I felt like I figured out a more relaxed and paced tempo on my DU today because having to go unbroken really forces you to concentrate on not missing.

We took it easy in the morning because we went over to 989 CrossFit in Midland for their first Friday Night Throwdown at 7pm. We had no idea what the workout would be until we got there. After it was announced, I wanted to head home.

3 Rounds

  • 800m Run
  • 40 Pull-ups
  • 60 HR Push-ups

OMG FML! I am horrible at big sets of push-ups. I was the last guy to finish and Matt and Kevin were the guys in front of me, so we took the last 3 places for men. Michelle won the women and beat all of us. My time was 31:44. I’m just happy to have finished. It was good because I’d never program something like that.

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