My OL-technique needs a lot of work. Felt easy all the way up to 102, maybe should have gone for 107 before bumping it up to 111. No problem getting the weight high enough but I suck at wrapping my elbows around the bar, today it almost cost me one of them..
For the metcon, plan was to do only the tire flips and rope climbs for more of a sprint work. As usual I filled it out with other stuff, and it turned out to be too much. Rope climbs are always fatiguing my grip, however it then is smart to throw KBS in the mix then is something I should have known before. Almost lost my grip and fell on the first climb of the second round, decided to let them be from then on and just pushed the tempo for KBS and Tire Flips.
No worries though, as spent and out of energy as I was after this wod, it must have been good.
What also feels good is that I now am so used to the 32kg KB that it feels about as easy swinging that as the 24 did before, I can keep on going ”forever”.
What’s not good is my shoulder, the combo of over bar burpees and high reps in the OH-pos was what killed it the first time and after yesterday’s Sectional WOD, I can tell yet again that I really need to stay away from that kind of workload.
Only one week left of 5 by 5’s before it gets a full recovery week however, just need to stay smart about it for 7 more days and then after that rest I both hope and truly believe that I can be rid off these problems.
