Woke up with my hips feeling a little tight from all of those wall balls and air squats. Did a 20 minute ROMWOD this morning. Opened up the gym at 11am.
Hang Power Clean (above knee)
Felt really good and Alex said my timing was on point with no bar crashing.
Wore straps for all of the sets. Easy.
Was programmed to do 6 singles in the 85-95% range. If it felt good warming up, I planned to go heavier, and I did.
- Missed 136 twice
Wanted that three hundo so I set my jumps to get there. After I felt really low to get the 132, I think it got in my head. The two attempts with 136 weren’t very committed, but I know what it feels like now. No surprise…it feels really fucking heavy! My last make was only 1 kilo under my best so I’m happy with it. The PR was from December and my 130 C&J PR was in January so it’s been a long time since I attempted a heavy jerk. Alex set a 2kg PR with 130 and then also made a couple of attempts with 136.
One big session left on the Vaughn program.
Midline & Gymnastics
- 10 Weighted GHD Sit-ups (25#)
- 5 Strict Ring Pull-ups
The 5# jump wasn’t a big deal. I liked the strict pull-up variation on the rings, which is supposed to translate over to the muscle-up.
Sitting around the house in the afternoon, I felt exhausted. Didn’t expect the workout to take that much out of me. Finally got in the shower and moving around to get out of the house. Played a fast 18 holes of golf (cart) and did another 20 minute ROMWOD at night.
