Feeling just a little bit off. Throat is a bit sore, better not get sick right now. These PB’s I should have had a long time ago, still they didn’t feel really convincing. Deadlift was ugly and heavy already from 184, think it might be time to put them back in my programming more often again. (In combination with Pendlay and ring rows!).
First miss at 84kg press, the wrist band fell off again, don’t wanna risk my weak wrists so just let it be. Second felt ok, but I’m way to wobbly. Need to work more on mid line stability for sure.
Conditioning tonight will be a workout with the Team, time is definitely due to make us work better together and I think the WOD I have in mind will be perfect!
EDIT: And it worked out just like I wanted to. We got to work on our communication, everybody did hard work and I actually think we performed pretty damn well! Times aren’t really important but this is what we did (stolen and modified from a 2010 Regional):
A. In order, 125 reps of each:
- Ground to Shoulder, 135/95lbs
- Box Jumps, 24/20″
- CTB Pull Ups
- Sumo Deadlift High Pulls, 95/65lbs
(Row done in 16’31min, could have gone for 5k. 125’s finished in 21’23mins).
