Still Tight

My back was still really tight this morning, though it did seem to improve over the day. Still sore from Sunday in all the same places. Went to the 4pm class.

Warm-up

3 Rounds

  • 4 Sets
    • 2 Lunges
    • PVC Pass
  • 8 Scap Pull-ups
  • 8 Behind Neck Presses (45#)
  • 50ā€™ Bear Crawl

Barbell Warm-up

  • 7 Snatch Grip Deadlifts (45#)
  • 5 Dip, Drive, High Pull (45#)
  • 5 High Hang Muscle Snatch (45#)
  • 5 High Hang Power Snatch (45#)
  • 5 Hang Power Snatch (45#)

Weightlifting

3 Snatch Deadlifts + 3 Hang Power Snatches

  • 2×45#
  • 75
  • 95
  • 115
  • 135

Nothing too heavy today. That doesn’t mean it was easy though! We were working up to a moderate weight before the metcon.

Conditioning

13:00 AMRAP

  • 13 Hang Power Snatch (95#)
  • 13 Pull-ups

I went 5-4-4 on both movements until my 6th round when I held on for the clock doing 5-6 for snatches. Finished with 5+11. Feeling good on my pull-ups lately and should try pushing to bigger sets. My thumbs were shot in the hook grip, though I’m not very good with stringing together hang snatches. After a round or two I pretty much started resetting on every rep, which takes a lot of time and you’re still holding the bar.

Getting back to butterfly pull-ups, I’m doing the Camille regrip, which is giving me a blister in my palm like she always gets. Or at least it does when I don’t wear grips, which I didn’t for “Danny” on the 1st due to the presses and today. The old blister tore away today and I started a little bit of a new one on my left hand. Don’t seem to have anything on my right palm though.

After Christmas the gym switched over to NCFit programming. It’s definitely different from Ben Smith’s Affiliate Design, which was some of my favorite programming. I’ve liked some of the workouts so far, but not sure what to think yet. Give me a couple more weeks before I form an opinion. šŸ™‚

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