Competition This Weekend

I had a Comp on Saturday at CrossFit Michiana.  This was a couples Comp and a lot of Fun.  My partner was Tara Olson and she did an awesome job.  The WODs were not to tough of volume intense for myself but she was able to keep up and surprised the heck out of me so GREAT JOB to her!

Here are the WODs:

8 Min AMRAP (Men complete Rd, then Women, alternating....)
6 Box Jumps 24"
6 Lateral Bar Burpees
6 Thrusters 95/65#

Our score
12 + 4 BJ's

WOD 2:
12 Min AMRAP
Buy in was about 1:30 of lunges and buddy carry
30 Deadlifts 115/75#
30 DU's
30 Pull Ups
30 Wall Balls 20/14
30 Hang Clean 115/75#
30 T2B
30 S2OH 115/75

We got through 12 T2B in Rd 2.

WOD 3:
3 Min Max Snatch 135/85#
4 Min Tabata Sit Ups (alternating people)
3 Min Max OHS 135/85#

Our scores
49 - 108 - 61

Tara struggle with the Snatch but was able to get around 15-20 OHS.

The final was:
100 Air Squats while partner holds 145/105#
(each had to complete 100 AS's to advance)
then 2 Rds
120 ft prowler push 160/250#
2 Rope Climbs

Our time

Tara did really well on this one and we ended up taking 1st place overall.  Fun day.  I also recently became sponsored by Progenex and reall like the Recovery as well as the Force they are releasing next month.  I have never taken a Pre-Workout so I am not sure how to compare it but so far I like it a lot.  Recommend Both.  I am also cleaning up my diet with Regionals nearing and will be posting more information on that.  Get Better!!

The open is Coming!

I have been sitting back and training hard,  I figured after the lay off from posting I would jump back on with the competition season building up steam.  I was able to hit a PR on my deadlift yesterday

5 Rep Deadlift
485 x 5

This is beginning to not be as big of a weakness as it used to be for me.

I also recently got a Shoulder to Overhead PR not to long ago, as well as a clean & Jerk PR and a Clean PR a few weeks back.  Things are going well and I am getting excited for Regionals on June 7-9th.

I have a Comp this Saturday (a team one) so took it easy so far today.  I did Main Site which I was distoyed by Panchick at.

Main Site
7 Rds
7 Push Jerk
7 C2B
7 Burpees

My time

Then I Power Snatched and got a PR at 245#.  Not the prettiest but it was good.  After that I worked on MU's with some light snatches at 135.  Nothing special just some EMOTM.  I plan to some burpees tonight and some mobility.
