Hehe, wouldn’t exactly call my lifting technique full of ”excellent execution and speed”. OH-pos felt off in all lifts and just holding the rack pos felt like a deep stretch in my shoulders, guess that’s what happens when you’ve been completely inactive for a week.
On a positive note weights felt easy overall, back squats was something I put in there my self and it felt like I could do a lot more. KBS was also a positive experience, shoulders took a little beating by locking out with complete extension, but in general all sets was unbroken and easy. Thinking about building this one up like I did with my GHD’s before and aim for a fast 100 reps for time, what ever that would be?
Feels good to be back in training again. Slowly getting over the disappointment from Regionals and realizing that I don’t do CrossFit only to compete, I do it because I love it in every aspect. I love chasing new PB’s, I love feeling stronger then before and faster than yesterday. Just need to get back on the right track mentally and I’m sure I will be more than a good enough athlete when time wants me to be.
PS. When starting a new training cycle with positioning and technique as the biggest goals, one of the most important tools should be to record and correct yourself. Needless to say, I forgot to bring the camera today…
