Was down to New Species CrossFit in Royal Oak again for day 2 of the BlessTheGym Tour/Camp with Kendrick Farris. Worked on the clean and the jerk today. Tons of carryover from the snatch positioning and drills yesterday. Really glad I went to this with Matt. Was a good experience and reinforced some of the things I need to work on in my lifts.
Got home, took a nap and a shower, then headed over to Survival Fitness to knock out 14.2. After week 1, I was in 28,476th place out of 109,998 men worldwide for top 25.9%. Considering my shoulder isn’t 100% and I was sick for the first workout, I’ll take it. My goal for the year is to finish in a higher percentile than last year, which was top 20%. I just wish I hadn’t taken 2 months to focus on weightlifting, because my engine still isn’t up to where it was.
I warmed up with a lot of shoulder mobility work, about 5 minutes on the Air Dyne, some squat stuff, and who knows what else.
Every 3 minutes for as long as possible complete:
- From 0:00-3:00, 2 rounds of:
- 10 OHS (95#)
- 10 C2B pull-ups
- From 3:00-6:00, 2 rounds of:
- 12 OHS (95#)
- 12 C2B pull-ups
- From 6:00-9:00, 2 rounds of:
- 14 OHS (95#)
- 14 C2B pull-ups
- Etc., following same pattern until you fail to complete both rounds
My goal was to get to the round of 14s and get whatever I could. Took it pretty easy in the first 3 minutes, going unbroken with OHS and 3-3-2-2 on the C2B. Didn’t rush the sets of C2B at all. Tried to take it easy on the 12s too, getting the first round done in about 1:15-1:20. Turned into a lot of doubles and singles in these rounds. Didn’t have much rest time before the next 3 minutes. Went 8-6 on the OHS, struggled through the C2B and held on to what I could with OHS to finish with a score of 124. Mission accomplished.
My engine just isn’t what I’d like it to be yet and not doing pull-ups for 2 weeks kind of sucked, especially since my pull-ups aren’t very good to begin with. Shoulder was fine during the workout though. Glad that workout is done and I can get back to training tomorrow. On to week 3.
Hours later I went out to the garage and did CrossOver Symmetry Recovery.
