Excited about the Midline

Today went into the gym with a WOD from a couple of days ago on my mind. One that some people I knew had tried and I had to give a go. Bulger.....hero WOD. I started warming up with DU's and went over how the coaching will take place in the gym with Brandon.

The WOD for the day was Bulger:

10 RDS

150 M Run
7 C2B Pull Ups
7 135# Front Squat


Went unbroken the whole time and kept a consistent pace and was surprised and felt like I did something wrong when I saw my time. Will not complain though! After the WOD did some heavy lifting. Had not Snatch Balanced for awhile and my old PR was 205#. I warmed up and then:

Snatch balance

155# x 1
165# x 1
175# x 1
185# x 1
195# x 1
205# x 1
215# x 1 (FAILED)
215# x 1 (realized the importance of keeping my mid line tight at this point)
225# x 1
235# x 1 (FAILED)
235# x 1
245# x 1

245# went up easy......I realized that techniques in this and many lifts means more then strength. That is not the biggest thing I took back from the Cert is HOW to keep your midline tight. I used to always tell people and myself but I never did it properly. I am excited to only go up!
