Long day at the gym:

Strongman class to start out. This is the best thing that's ever happened in the history of the world.

We used atlas stones today for deadlifts and lapping.
Deadlifts:
95x3
95x3
115x3

Lapping:
95x3
95x3
115x3

1hr Croga

1hr Oly (snatching). Today was pathetic. I failed 43 kg 3 times because I just kept landing with it a little in front of me. I finally made it, but as a power snatch. Horrific.

Snatch jumps:
24x2
24x2
29x3
34x2
36x1
37x2
39x1
41x1
41x1
43xF
43XF
43XF
43X1 (power)


I stuck around for the squatting session because I wanted to do something at which I excel. Good thing, I pr'd by 5#. Jim told me I need to be more aggressive. This has never been a problem, and now it's a theme.

Squat jumps:

115x3
145x3
165x3
185xF (1) WHAT? This is SO LIGHT
185x1
205x1
220x1
235x1 (PR)

Only you would fail at 185 then march right up to 235. Great job!

Yesterday I skipped the morning session in favor of more sleep, so I stayed for the 7.30 after the 6.30 squatting class.

Also, I'm pretending Monday didn't happen.

I worked on my front squat last night as it is SO MUCH WEAKER than my back squat, which keeps getting better while my front squat stubbornly stays at 180.

Front squat jumps:

95x3
125x3 (Sammy said I jumped too much)
140x2
150x2
160x1
170x1
180xF
175x1
180xF

The 7.30 session was floor pressing. This actually went well, probably because I've been half-assing the past weeks.

The metcon was slapping pushups (I can't do this bandless) with a LB backpack and 24" boxjumps. These are getting a lot easier (thank god) as I've now done 3 (THREE) metcons without killing my shins. 4.37, which was a lot faster than I expected.

Floor press jumps:
53x3
73x3
93x1
3103x1
108x1
113x1
123x1
128xF

I intentionally skipped the usual session today, in keeping with my "why deadlift" philosophy. We'll see how stupid I am come Total.

I did 2 hours of oly, more of a deload, in preparation for Sunday. It felt pretty good, but I think it messed up my sleep, or something did because I woke up at about 12.30 and didn't get back to sleep until about 4.30. Needless to say, I did not go to the 6am, I'll go back for the 7.30 and stay for 8.30 Croga.

Snatch jumps (opening at 44kg)
24x2
29x2
33x2
36x1x1
38x1x1
40xF (landed in a power snatch, tried to stand right up)
40XF (same)
40x1
42x1
44x1

Clean and Jerk jumps (opening at 56kg)
35x2
40x2
45x2
49x2
52xF (clean)x1
54x1
56xF (jerk)xF (pressout)
56xF (jerk)

Pullup day turned out to be a good one. I skipped the metcon because I'm not insane (who needs 100 pullups before an oly comp?)

83x1
103x1

Backsquat day, my favorite day of the week. I was hoping to PR, but since I've PR'd every week for the past month, I can't be too unhappy with failing 240# at almost up. I'll get it soon.

My mile run, however, was great. 8.36 and totally unexpected. I could have done faster but still.

Squat jumps:
115x3
145x2
165x1
185x1
205x1
225x1
240xF

Weekend of Oly lifting.

Saturday was preparing for Sunday's meet, so everything was pretty light.

Snatch jumps:
24x3
29x2
32x2
35x1x1
35x1x1
35x2

Clean and Jerk Jumps:
35x2
40x2
45x2
45x2
45x2

Sunday was relatively the same, except we actually went heavy.

For the snatch, I opened with 44kg (made it), failed 46kg, then went to 47kg. I failed this by oly standards (slight press out), but I got it overhead, so that counts for me, because I just do Oly to make myself better at crossfit.

Same deal with the C&J: made 56kg, made 59kg (PR), got 61kg overhead (new PR), but slight press out.

The meet could not have been more fun.

Bench Day. We haven't done this in a while, and I think mine has gotten a lot stronger. My 1RM was 115# and I did 100# for 5.

Metcon was not great as it was double unders (so terrible for me) adn 60 foot bear crawl, AMRAP 10 minutes, and the room was just packed, so every time I got a pattern, I'd hit something. 3 rounds 5 DU.

Bench jumps:

45x5
65x5
80x5
90x5
95x5
100x5
