This week’s workouts were a doozy! The previous week I was down and out with the flu, hence the reason I went balls to the wall this week!
I completed the beast in 6:36. The pull-ups were done assisted with a green band (middle amount of help) and Thrusters were done with 45 lbs. Obviously the goal is to conquer Fran prescribed which is unassisted pull-ups and 65 lbs. ……One day……
Monday: Shoulder Press 3-3-3-3-3-3-3
You were to work up to a max for three reps. I did 60 lbs (sadly). Shoulder press is very difficult for me! I cringe when I see it. Then again, if it is something I need to work on, I should be thankful.
This was intense! I ended up with 5 rounds + 200 meters in the 6th round. Again, I used the green band to assist my pull-ups.
This workout was probably the most challenging! The deadlifts were the worst part of the WOD. I finished my three rounds in 26:40. I used 95 lb. for my first round then switched to 85 lb. for the final two. I dropped weight because my back started rounding and I didn’t want to strain it. Pull-ups were done with a green band and I used 20 inches to jump. After the WOD, I was bummed I didn’t use 24 inches.. I know I could have completed the higher jump, but oh well.. next time.
Thursday: For time:
20 front squat, (M)135lb, (F)95lb
30 box jumps, (M)24inch, (F)20inch
40 kb swings, (M)55lb, (F)35lb
50 wall balls, (M)20lb, (F)14lb
This WOD was fun. I liked the mixture of movements. I did not use 95 for a front squat. Maybe if we were doing three reps, but 20?? No way, Jose. I used 65 lb.
Max burpees for 2 minutes
Rest 1 min.
Max air squats for 2 minutes
Rest 1 min.
Max toes to bar for 2 minutes
We were to keep track of our numbers and add them up for a final score. My #s were 33-84-31. 33 burpees, 84 air squats, and 31 knees to chest. (toes to bar is still sporadic for me)–workin on it!
Saturday: REST!!…and happy about it!
Question: How was your week of workouts? Did you have a fave or set any PRs???
