Will take a few days to get adjusted back to Eastern time. Little sore in some odd places today. Not as bad as I was expecting though. Out in the garage before noon and warmed up with Crossover Symmetry Activation. Day 2 of week 1 on the lifting program.
Snatch Push Press + 3 OHS (3s pause in bottom)
Was supposed to keep it below 80% (175), which wasn’t a problem. 😉 Little shaky with my OH stability after the time away from the bar, but made all of the reps. Dropped the bar to my back trough 135, then tried with 145 but I was too wobbly and didn’t commit. Dropped it down my back and then didn’t try with 155.
Tall Power Snatch + OHS
Yay!! Wasn’t expecting that much. Haven’t done much more than this when dropping into the squat (triple with 145 I think). Actually it was the first time doing the power variation of tall snatches. Thankful for powers to save my legs a bit while I adjust to squatting again.
Snatch Deadlift (3s pause at knee on descent)
Horrible, but did the assigned %. Wore lifting straps. How did I ever snatch more than this? haha
Meant to start back on ROMWOD yesterday but it was a long day and I didn’t finish with the lawn until late. So today I’ll do a double. First 20 minute session after lunch.
Had a chiropractor appointment at 5 and then went to CrossFit Intuition.
- 5s of StrongFit Triceps & Biceps Openers (5#)
Went light since I haven’t done them in weeks and I never really liked the 10# DB at the gym anyway.
Midline & Gymnastics
E2M – 10 Sets
- 10 GHD Sit-ups
- 3 Strict Pull-ups
I’m sure I’ll be sore for the next couple of days after not getting in my GHDs last week. No pain doing the pull-ups!! Finally. 🙂 They were actually really easy but I didn’t want to push it with too much volume. Patience.
- 30 Zeus DU
- 10 Burpees
The heavy Zeus rope is no fucking joke! It wants to fly out of your hands and is so much more work on the shoulders and grip. My biggest set was 17 unbroken I think. Took me 4:28 to finish. I think I went 11-17-2, 8-8-8-6, and 12-12-6. Forced myself to break after the first round because missing did not feel good. I’m interested to see if this helps the shoulder fatigue that comes in to play with regular dub on large sets or if it completely messes up your rhythm.
Did an easy 5:00 cool down on an old Air Dyne someone brought in and then did Crossover Symmetry Iron Scap. Knocked out another 20:00 ROMWOD at home.
