First WOD of 2014! I am still incredibly sore from Mondays’s workout (to the point that I could barely walk yesterday) but I knew the best thing would be to get my blood flowing and some mobility going today. I’m slowly easing back in after taking pretty much all of December off. My body composition has changed a bit, but I didn’t actually gain any weight, so that’s pretty great. Anyway, here’s to 2014! Tyler got me some packets of Progenex’s Flow hydrolyzed salmon protein isolate in Island Punch, and it’s SO GOOD. A nice change from the normal chocolate or vanilla options.
E2MOT2M for 10 Minutes of:
- 2 Front Squats: 75lbs.
- 8 Toes-to-bar. Didn’t want to tear my hands before the pull-ups in the WOD. Cycled 4 once. The rest were 3s and 2s.
WOD for Time: 12:09
5 Rounds of:
- 5 Power Cleans: 75lbs, Level II-.
- 7 Hand-Release Push-Ups: Level II.
- 30 Double-Unders: Rx.
- 7 Pull-Ups: Level II.
I reallllly wanted sub-12 on this, but in the last round my hands and the pull-up bar were SO SWEATY and slippery. I had to do singles for all 7, and that just ate up the clock. I’m not as much as a dare-devil as I used to be at hanging onto the bar for oneeee moreee rep after my injury. I ended up tearing both of my hands on the first rep of the last round too, so that didn’t help the situation. I hate how soft my hands get after not doing pull-ups or TTB for a while. They tear every single time. But this was the perfect scaling for me. I didn’t want to kill myself on the front squats since my legs are still really sore from Monday, and same with the power cleans in the WOD. Double-unders are such cake for me now! At least I still feel good at those!
