Finally!!

Over at Kevin’s tonight for a few hours.

Warm-up

  • 3:00 Air Dyne
  • PVC Pass-thrus
  • PVC Snatch Positions
  • 45# Snatch Positions
  • 45# Hang Snatches standing on plywood with toes hanging off

Snatches

  • 2 @ 95#
  • 115#
  • 135#
  • 145#
  • 155#
  • 165#
  • 175#
  • 185#
  • 6 misses @ 190# (PR attempts)

I was under every single attempt at 190#, so that was good. Not tight enough though and bottoming out too fast after receiving the bar just above parallel. First attempt was the best and I had the bar way back in position, but wasn’t ready for it. Encouraged that I didn’t bail on any attempt and pulled under every single one. Here’s the first attempt…

Bench Press

  • 8 @ 45#
  • 5 @ 135#
  • 3 @ 185#
  • 2 @ 205#
  • 1 @ 215#
  • 1 @ 225#
  • 1 @ 235# (PR match)
  • 1 @ 240# (PR)
  • 10 @ 185# (activation set)
  • 4 x 3 @ 185# (Cluster sets w/ only 30s rest)

Last November I did 235# and haven’t done it since. Been pissing me off for a long time, so it was good to finally break through that barrier. I still have the weak right arm problem otherwise I’d be able to go even higher. I guess I need to do dumbbell bench pressing a lot.

WOD

4 x 1,000m Row (I go, you go)

I was shooting to keep just under a 1:50/500m pace and was successful. Rowed 3:38 the first 3 rounds and then a 3:37.
