There is no greater mood enhancer than a killer workout. Today was a better Monday than most, so I guess that helped going into it. But I absolutely killed this workout. I mean like, murdered with conviction, killed. I was the first one done in my class, which never happens. I’m usually top-middle of the pack, but man. This was good. So good that I’m doubting myself and think I might have miscounted at some point. The squats weren’t my best form, but I was pushing some heavy weight for me, for sets of 5!
- Back Squat 5-5-5: 120-120-120. These were a little sloppy, but after this past weekend of eating like crap and indulging in drinkydrunk family time, I’m happy I managed this. I think that’s a 5RM PR even for a single set of 5, so I’m happy.
WOD for Time: 4:21
- 100 Russian Kettlebell Swings: 53lbs, Level II.
- 3 Box Jumps at the top of every minute, including the first minute: Level II.
I’m pretty sure I did 0:00-1:00: ~30, 1:00-2:00: ~25, 2:00-3:00: ~25, 3:00-4:00 ~17, and then finished off 4:00-4:21 the last 3 reps. I was hauling butt on the KB swings, really pushing it down with my lats at the top of the swing (which was just eye level, since they were Russian). I’m getting pretty confident with the 53lb KB, and think I’m going to attempt going overhead with it next time there is a small amount of them in a WOD (aka, not 100 reps). My legs are extremely shaky, and my back and shoulders are already tightened up. This is going to be a long week! Also, last exam before finals this Wednesday! Wooo! Happy Monday, y’all.
