Its me and it's her (the wife)

I think it is about time I keep a log here instead of anywhere else..

I workout with the wife 4 times a week and we kick each others B-sides all the time...

So I am going to keep track of what we do and who beats who

Re: Its me and it's her (the wife)

Today is my first log of many to come.

3 wods @ 21-15-9 time cap 20min

The idea it to increase the difficulty/intensity on each WOD. Choosing our own weights.

Wod 1 = Easy
Wod 2 = Medium
Wod 3 = Hard

Wod 1 = Easy
21 - WB
15 - KB Swings
9 - T2B

Wod 2 = Medium
21 - Deadlift
15 - Burpees
9 - Box jumps

Wod 3 = Hard
21 - OHS
15 - Clean & Jerk
9 - Front squat

Wife beat me twice today 2-1, otherwise it was a great day

Re: Its me and it's her (the wife)

Warm up : C2 rower

Snatch day today - technique only with an old weightlifter that has competed at national level
Front squats ladder starting at 40kg finishing at 100kg (total possibly 100reps)

Pure technique today checking start position and final position

From this we broke it down into different part and the last thing we did was full snatches. 3 reps per set, but they need to be good reps.

Mental:
Even though we did not try to hit any fantastic weights today the mental and concentration parts were just a tiring as trying to hit a PR.

So today was a great day and we have taken allot with us from this session.

Re: Its me and it's her (the wife)

Rest day today...

Even though yesterdays sessions was not heavy I can feel it all over my upper back and traps...

So something good came out of it

Re: Its me and it's her (the wife)

It was game on today!

The wife had a niggle in her shoulder so she scaled it today... love her for that..

AMRAP ladder 20min time cap - 3,6,9,12,15,18,21,24 and so on

For me
Thrusters 40kgs
Lengths of the gym (1 length is 20m)


For her
Thrusters 15kgs
Single unders (x10 for each rep)

Results:
Me- completed round 18 and 18 thrusters total = 144reps
Wife - completed round 21 and 127 single unders total = 84 thrusters + (967 SU's /10) = 97 reps = 181

Question is who really won.... i'll give the wife the win today...

Re: Its me and it's her (the wife)

Today was deadlift day

Warm up with C2 rower and then 100 wall balls.

Then we started of light with the following reps 3, 3, 3, 2, 2, 2 ,1,1,1,1 until we were done. The weight increase between lifts was not more than 20kgs/44lbs. No lifts was to failure.

Me - start off light with 40kgs or 88lbs and at the end I finished off with a comfortable 165kgs or 363lbs


The Wife who has not done allot of deadlift previously PR 68kgs or 150lbs. she started of at 25kgs and finished of smashing her PR with 80kgs or 176lbs.

Got to give this one to the wife today.... She was so happy so I can't take that away from her

Re: Its me and it's her (the wife)

Conditioning day today.

10 rounds for time
12 - lengths of the gym ( 1 length = 25 meter)
9 - DU's
6 - T2B
3 - OHS

No idea what the hell happened today but my DU's were useless, felt as if I was just starting to learn them again. Must have wasted at least 6-8 min on them

In the end this took 40:45 so I was not happy.

The wife did not train today so I won today

Re: Its me and it's her (the wife)

Snatch, front squat and OHS today

Warm up was an easy 100 calories on the rower with a stroke rate of 22.
Then onto wall balls and did around 50-60 of them to loosen up.

Snatch
After last week I have a few things to work on, so it was light weight and concentrating on the pull from the hips and getting in that low position but keeping stable.

In between I did front squats for reps with 90kgs or 200lbs.

OHS
I have not been doing these that long, probably about 2 months.
So I started off with with the bar and in between I did front squats.
Worked up to a new PR of 7 reps at 60kgs. I could have gone heavier to get that 1 rep max but that was not important, I wanted proper form and the feeling of having the balance at the top and the bottom.

So a really good day today.

Wife had to go to work early today which was a great shame.. this is 2 days in a row without her beating my arse.... so looking forward to her coming back on Thursday
