Monday 1/27 WOD at PFC

Screen shot 2014-01-25 at 2.47.09 PMToday was a mix of epic awesomeness, and epic stupidness. But the WOD…the WOD was absolutely incredible. INCREDIBLE. EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS WORKOUT. YES. I can’t stop being so excited about it. Also, this past weekend I started pole dancing again!! Which is so great!!! But that was also the part of today that was epic suck. I think I want to write a whole different post about it. Maybe tomorrow. But for now, baby’s still got it!

Strength:

  • Complete these at a good tempo, meaning do not take breaks at the top of the squat. Expect to be squatting at a lower weight than usual.
  • Front Squat 5-5-5-5-5: 75-75-75-75-75(-maybe another set? Lost count!). These felt good. I might have been able to do sets at 85 if I started there, but I didn’t think to go up until I was already pretty gassed. I think my previous 1RM front squat was 95lbs, so I am pretty sure I could beast through that now.

This was so great. Let me tell you about why this was so great. First of all, I’m pretty sure I can count the total amount of reps on one hand of snatches I’ve done at any weight above 55lbs. I saw this online last night and said to Tyler, “I’m going to Level I the shit out of this WOD tomorrow.” And going into it, honestly, I doubted myself about being able to finish at 65lbs. But I stuck with it, and executed each rep as textbook as I could, and they were beautiful. Guys, every one of my snatches was beautiful. It was the BEST. The 35 and 45 sets were…probably easier than they should have been, but I just used those to really focus on the form cues that the coach gave me last week, and that helped me be able to do all 55s and the 65s in the long run anyway. But I was so stoked. It felt absolutely incredible. I am so proud of how I did, and for sticking with it, and for killing those last 5 snatches at what is a heavy weight for me when I’m already completely blown from the rest of the workout. I’m also extremely happy I can still bust out some of my difficult tricks on the pole, even though I have definitely lost some of my abilities. Again, I think I’ll write a whole post about that tomorrow. Woo!
