Today I had some time in the morning before class to jump in on a WOD. I arrived early to hit some strength. I wanted to Front Squat and tried a EMOTM:
Front Squat 225 x 5 EMOTM 10 Min
I warmed up and then hit this. It was a good burner. I was not sure how this would feel considering I THOUGHT 225# would feel light. I was wrong....as I got farther into this I was dreading grabbing the bar. Plus my back was sore from all the deadlifting and it was hard to keep my core tight. Good squatting session. Next the class WOD:
:45 Walking Lunges 45# Plate
:45 Sledgehammer Swings on Tire
Rd 1: 92
Rd 2: 79
Rd 3: 72
This was a much better WOD then I had anticipated. I blew myself out though on the burpees....I nearly got 30 and then could barely breath for the lunges. I needed that to see how my body would react to the other work. The gassers were worth 10 points if you could get a full one in the :45. It was about 40-50 M down back, down back for a full gasser. It is always nice to do WODs with a class or someone else to get a push that you cannot give to yourself when you are alone. I really enjoy that.
Tonight I will be doing KBS. I started a progression where every couple days I increase my reps. The other day I warmed up and did 41 reps unbroken with a 1.5 pood. Not even close to a PR but now I am going to do 1 more every time until I fail. My goal being to get to 100. I know I am right around 70 right now and that is not good enough....need to get better!
