I am already so sore from this WOD! I pushed myself pretty hard, and definitely am feeling it in my legs, butt, and shoulders. So great! Tomorrow is all sprint rowing, so I’m looking forward to that as well. Looking forward to rowing?! Who am I? I used to hate it, but my form has improved so much and I’m actually pretty into it lately. I might try it on a higher resistance setting tomorrow.
- Strict Press 3-3-3-3-3 (about 90% of 1rep-max weight for all 5 working sets): 55(fail)-50-50-50-50-50. My press is getting better, despite the numbers not going up too much. Really wanted to have 55lbs be my working set weight, but just couldn’t make it happen. 50lbs felt great until the second to last round, and I have no idea how I got the weight over head on the last rep, but somehow I did. Then the last round was strong and steady again.
4 Rounds for Time of:
- 15 10ft Unbroken WallBalls: 8lb medicine ball
- 10 Unbroken Ring Dips: 2 thin resistance bands
- 5 Unbroken Hang Power Snatch: 42lbs
This workout was a real bitch. I did all of the wallballs unbroken except for that one time the ball almost hit me in the face, and in the last round it slipped out of my hands at the bottom of the squat. The ring dips were all unbroken except for the last round when I felt like my shoulders were going to fall off. And I found some super power with the hang power snatch, and they felt really great. I tore my hand yesterday on the toes-to-bar, and it was KILLING ME doing them unbroken. The first two rounds were unbroken, the third was 2&3, and the last was 3&2. I didn’t want it to tear worse and my tape had slipped off, so I was probably more concerned about my hand throughout this than I should have been. I also had a clicking moment in the first round where the hang power snatches felt reallllly heavy. I decided to just jump with my hips as hard as I could, and all of a sudden it was as if I was lifting no weight! That’s one of the fundamental things to olympic lifting, jumping with your hips for power, but for some reason it really clicked when I got angry and aggressive over the weight feeling almost too heavy. It was awesome!
