Went to the 4:30 class.
Warm-up – 2 Sets
- 10 PVC Passes
- 20 Walking Lunges
- High Knees
- 10 Push-ups
Strength – Front Squat
Haven’t squatted with a bar in well over a month so I took it easy. Felt fine.
- 30 C&J (135#)
I’ve been chasing the sub 2 minute mark for a couple of years. In February of 2016 I did it in 2:04 and in November of 2014 my time was 2:17. I was nervous because I knew exactly what I had to do to improve my time and it was going to hurt. When I got the 2:04 I did 3 sets of 5, a set of 2 and then singles.
When someone called out 30 seconds I had just done my 10th rep, so I knew it was possible. I stuck to the 3×5 and was able to increase that 4th set to 3 reps before switching to singles. Then I forced myself to pick the bar up quicker than I wanted to, especially at the end when I knew it was getting close. Finished in 1:57 for a 7 second PR!
- 10/10 Kroc Rows (44# KB)
- 30s Handstand Hold
- 15 Sit-ups
I did the rows slow and controlled and tried to get a slight pause at the top.
Stopped at the gas station on my drive home for some celebration snacks. 🙂
I’ve posted a couple of things about CrossFit Programming over on my personal blog this week:
