Obviously very stoked about these scores! May not jump up and down quite yet though since there’s always a risk that Dave finds the old PB’s to be inacurrate. Do know however that the press felt very good, first time in a long while, and that 161kg is my old 1RM Back Squat PB which I am damn happy to be able to do for 3 now!
Forgot how good of a warm up ring gymnastics actually are, more of that to come, and actually found out that if I put my thumb on the same side of the bar as the fingers, it doesn’t irritate my wrist! Unfortunately that is not the position I’m ending up in when doing cleans, so as you might have figured out after the warm up for those on the minute lift, my wrist gently asked me to avoid that pressure, and don’t ask me what happened – but I actually listened for once!
On a new workout plan right now, where I go for volume every other day and lower intensity monostructural kind of training in between (swimming, running, hiking etc). Hoping that this will let my body recover enough to stop getting all these small injuries.
Twisted TTB was really good for me, thought I filmed them but missed to press ”record”, since they force you to work even more on body control. Plan was to do a short metcon after but yet again my poor planning left me out of time, probably good for the wrist though. Also got so excited about the 3RM that I did a Mackie and forgot to do the 90% follow up sets, next time!
