Closer & Closer Grip

I definitely need to do heavier wall balls more often. I’m feeling those all over today!

Out in the garage around noon for a needed mental break from work. Warmed up with 5:00 on the Air Dyne for 1.57 miles and then overhead squats with grip width slowly moving out:

  • 10×45#
  • 5×75#
  • 5×95#
  • 5×115#
  • 5×135#

20:00 EMOM (alt)

  • 5 Strict C2B Ring Pull-ups
  • 10 Weighted GHD Sit-ups (20#)
  • 5 OHS (155#)
  • 5 Russian Dips (helped with feet)

Worked up quite a sweat in the cold garage. My middle fingers were on the last knurl ring of the bar so still a pretty close grip.

Headed to Saginaw’s only CrossFit affiliate in the evening.

Rowing WOD Week 15 Session 2

  • 4 Rounds
    • 200 Calorie row
    • 3:00 Rest
  • 5:00 Rest
  • 5 Rounds for time
    • 5 Burpees over the rower
    • 2 Calorie row

Shot for 20s/m and 950+ cal/hr on the first round, increasing 1 s/m and 10-15 cal/hr each round.

  • Round 1: 20 s/m, 12:24, 3,079m, 967 cal/hr
  • Round 2: 21 s/m, 12:11, 3,049m, 981 cal/hr
  • Round 3: 22 s/m, 12:05, 3,037m, 991 cal/hr
  • Round 4: 23 s/m, 11:55, 3,018m, 1005 cal/hr

Felt pretty good. The 5 rounder was to practice transitioning in and out of the rower, while strapping feet in each time. Took me 2:10. I didn’t count any calories I got on the first 2 pull since they came with almost no effort being stored up from the previous round.
