No gas in the tank today. Felt slow. I didn’t eat enough for breakfast this morning before working out. It’s such a double-edged sword: eat too much-feel slow; eat too little-feel slow. Haha. Ah well.
- Clean and Jerk 2-2-2-2: 85-85-85-85. At least I hit my sets at a solid weight, 85% of my 1RM. The same as the last time we did doubles, I think. Actually, this might be a PR for four sets of 2. Neat!?
WOD for Time: 13:49
5 Rounds of:
- 5 Power Clean: 75lbs, Level I. Probably could have done 80 on a normal day. Not today though.
- 10 Burpees: Rx.
- 10 Pullups: Level II.
Felt like I was moving at a turtle’s pace today. I did have an ah-hah moment on my 3rd round of power cleans, where I started really jumping the bar up, and all of a sudden my life got so much easier. I wasn’t putting enough into my legs, and was driving almost entirely with my back/hips. I’m not sure why. But eh. At least I got it sorted out semi-quickly. My 2nd round was the only not unbroken round of power cleans. My burpees were actually pretty steady in pace, but my pullups were very lacking today. I couldn’t get a good grip on the bar, and did sets of 3 and 2 almost the entire workout, with lots of rest and shaking-out. Dumb. Oh well. This was a fun WOD. It went by much quicker than most 5 RFT WODs.
