First day wearing my new weightlifting shoes!!!! They are so great. I have so much more power coming out of the pull now, and it made me realize how sloooooowwww I am at the top. It’s definitely my new sticking point for training my oly lifts. I also feel much more comfortable in the bottom of my squats. I see them being an excellent addition to my workouts in the future.
- Snatch 3-3-3-3: 60-60-65-60-60. I realized I am not moving nearly as fast as I should be from the triple extension to dropping under to catch the bar. It’s barely explosive at all, and it needs to be super explosive. Ehhh, like I said, something to work on.
WOD for Time: 11:42
- 5 x 15ft Rope Climbs: Level II.
- Row 1000m: Rx.
- 50 Burpees: Rx.
- Complete in any order, but you must finish all of one exercise before moving on to the next.
This was interesting! I completed it in the order above. Rx for rope climbs was 10 total, but I just didn’t see that happening in one sitting. If I could break them up, then maybe, but I burn out on them so quickly. I’ve been a little off with them too lately, so I decided to stick with Level II and just do 5, and they felt pretty good. I finished them in about 2.5 minutes. I’m really proud of myself for the rowing. Level II was only 750m, and I wanted so badly to just do that. But I’m awful at rowing and hate it so much, but working on weakness is so important, or else you’ll never get better. So I crossed over 750 and blew all the way to 1000m. I think I rowed it in 4:30, which isn’t a speed record or anything, but I freaking did it. And the burpees were just burpees. Just had to chip away. I did 30-10-10, but they were also sloooow.
We’re supposed to get totally dumped with snow over the next 24 hours…crossing my fingers so hard. I love snow!!!! The one class I have tomorrow has already been cancelled even though they haven’t made the call university-wide yet, so yayayay! Hopefully I’ll still be able to make it to crossfit!
