Re: Wisey's Log - Making me Fitter
My gym is always super congested on a monday nite, so did Fran instead of today's WOD

21/15/9 reps of:
42.5kg Thrusters
Pull ups (C2B)


My 2nd ever Fran and beat my 1st time by 5 mins (14.09 was 1st Fran). Super pleased!!!

Re: Wisey's Log - Making me Fitter
Warm Up
5x Max Deadhang Pull Ups (1min rest inbetween sets)

5x Max HSPU (1min rest inbetween sets)

Four rounds for time of:
Run 400 meters
42.5kg Thruster, 15 reps
15 Pull-ups


After doing Fran yesterday and the Pull ups/HSPU warm up, I was struggling with the Thrusters/Pull ups from round 2.

Still, its a working progress and practise makes perfect!!

Re: Wisey's Log - Making me Fitter
Overhead squat 1-1-1-1-1 reps
Front squat 1-1-1-1-1 reps
Back squat 1-1-1-1-1 reps

Try to increase the load on each of the fifteen sets.

OHS - 40kg-50-55-60-65-70(PR)
Front - 80-85-90-95-100(PR)
Back - 110-110-115-120

Seriously hurt my shoulder on the OHS. Got to the top of the rep with the 70kg and as I went to put bar back on the rack, I lost the weight behind me but because I had people training not far behind kept hold of the bar and twisted my shoulder all over the place!!

Then a metcon to finish which I shouldn't of done!!!

10min AMRAP
7x 50kg Clean & Jerk
7x Bar facing burpees

6 rounds.

Very poor but shoulders really restricted the pace of the C&Js

Re: Wisey's Log - Making me Fitter
Has anyone got any tips on strengthening my shoulders when doing Overhead Squats??

Its the 3rd time I've injured my shoulder whilst doing them and its always losing the bar behind me.

I'm wondering whether its a technique or flexibility issue.

Any tips would be gratefully received

Re: Wisey's Log - Making me Fitter

Five rounds for max reps of:
Body weight bench press

80kg Bench - 14/12/10/7/7 Total 50 reps
Pull Ups - 9/7/7/6/4 Total 33 reps

My first WOD since injuring my shoulder but still disapointing on the Pull Ups
