It’s the weekend! Yeah! Did homework all morning, literally, from the moment I woke up until about 3pm, and then headed to crossfit. Was feeling smug, thinking this workout wasn’t going to be bad, and that 15lb dumbbells would be too light. Ha! Negative.
Every 2 Minutes on the 2 Minutes for 10 Minutes of:
- 2 Front Squat: 70lbs.
- 5 Strict Pull ups: assisted, averaged 4 strict & 1 kipping per round. Haven’t done these in a while.
I maybe should have gone for 75 or 80 on the squats. I power cleaned the first of each round, and did two consecutive front squats, and I wasn’t really having too difficult of a time, even in the last round. But it felt nice to do real front squats again, instead of the cross-armed ones I was doing a week or so ago! I was definitely getting gassed from the pull-ups more. They were putting a weird strain on my elbow, and just didn’t feel super great.
WOD for Time: 10:47(?)
5 Rounds of:
- 5 Renegade Row Man-Makers: 15lbs, Level II.
- 10 Box Jumps: 20″, Level II.
- RRMM starts standing with DBs at sides. Go down to a plank, row right, push-up, row left, bring your feet up to your hands, squat clean thruster. Have fun!
That “Have fun!” is directly from the post online. Very funny. My brain could NOT wrap around the RRMM in the first couple reps of the first two rounds. I was doing push-up, row, row; row, row, push-up; push-up, row, push-up, row; it was just a complete mess. I’m also 99.999% sure I did 6 of them on rounds 3 and 4. My brain was just not there today. For rounds 3-5 I had to do the push-ups from my knees, because of pressure in my elbow. Irritating, but eh. Did a lotttt of mobility today when I got home. Everything has tightened up over the last week, and I really need to spend more time making sure I keep that from happening! Maybe it’s time to buy “Becoming a Supple Leopard.” Oh, and I really love these socks. Have a great weekend, y’all!
