Another PR Double

My hamstrings seemed to feel those RDLs when I woke up, but by the time I got to the gym at 9 I wasn’t feeling it. Did Crossover Symmetry Activation before heading to the platform.

Clean & Jerk

  • 2x5x20kg
  • 2x3x40
  • 3×60
  • 2×70
  • 2×80
  • 2×90
  • 2×95
  • 2×100
  • 2×105
  • 2×110
  • 2×115
  • 2×120 (PR)

I think 115 was a PR double as well and maybe even 110. My jerk is sloppy from not lifting heavy lately. The shoulder work I’ve been doing allowed me to hang on and stabilize several reps though. Became a real mental battle on the second rep after 100kg. That is multiple PRs on both my snatch and C&J doubles this week.

Conditioning

“Reverse Kalsu”

  • 100 Burpees
  • EMOM – do 5 Thrusters (75#)
    • We used ~30% of our max

Yes, you start with thrusters! No free minutes to make your time look better. :-p Got 13 burpees in the first minute, settled in to 11 for the next 7 rounds and then a final set of 10 to finish in 8:49. This was really all about finding the correct pace.

Had thought about doing Rowing Kalsu today but figured I should probably do this, which was programmed yesterday for classes. No 🍒 picking!

Midline

5 Rounds

  • 18 GHD Sit-ups
  • 12 Russian Twists (55# plate)
  • 3/3 Turkish Get-ups (35#)

Not timed, but moved without resting much between movements. Been doing weighted GHDs for weeks so unweighted was a nice change.

Recovered with some pizza.

Run

After mowing the lawn I took off for a 2 mile run, which took 16:47. Times keep coming down without feeling like I’m pushing. I think the main this is I’m getting more comfortable running at higher heart rates. Garmin reports an average of 146 beats per minute for today’s run. I’m also trying to improve my breathing and cadence.

I’ll ROMWOD at some point.

I'm searching for the perfect golf swing and my first hole-in-one. I'm addicted to CrossFit. I work for Automattic.
