Finally getting back to the elusive mid-week WOD!! How I’ve missed you so. My schedule this semester ended up changing, and I am not going to have to miss Mondays/Wednesdays afterall! Squats and oly lifts galore!! I was sore today, but was determined to get in there for my first Wednesday WOD of the year. Ugh, three weeks into January!!! Whatever, I did it! Time to solidify a good foundation for the rest of the year. I’ve been seeing more progress again, especially after cutting back on crap eating this month and it’s the best motivation to keep going. Look at my traps! Look at them!!!! Ahhh!
- Power Snatch 5-5-5-5: 60-60-60-60. Haven’t snatched in forever, so this was mainly an exercise in confidence, and testing muscle memory. I was popping my hips up too fast, which was causing me to bend my elbows early in the end of the triple extension, but I think I’ve corrected that. The coach complemented my “great olympic-looking setup” which was the highlight of everything. It’ll be interesting to see if they change Wednesdays to snatch days, since it’s usually clean&jerk, jerk, push press, or strict press.
WOD for Rounds+Reps: 4+4, Rx!
AMRAP in 12 Minutes of:
- 20 Box Jumps: 20″, Rx.
- 15 American Kettlebell Swings: 35lbs, Rx.
- 10 Kettlebell Goblet Lunges: 35lbs, Rx.
I love Rx-ing WODs. The box jumps completely killed my time. If it had been 15ish, I would have been able to smoke myself and get at least another round+ in, but 20 is just a lot of anything. The KB swings were cake, but the lunges made my already-burning calves even worse. I am happy (well, maybe happy isn’t the right word…) they are programming more lunges lately, because for some reason I am just horrible at them. Seriously, I look like a baby horse taking its first few steps on every single rep. It’s pitiful. But hey, what I lack in stability I make up for with heart and motivation to push through, and that’s what matters…right? Right guys?
