100k (220lb) x 6
120k (264lb) x 2. Not a PR but going Xfit deep now!

Thank you for the support Scott. There's just a time to rest. Crossfit makes you want to break PRs all the time, but we have to be careful not to break ourselves right :D

I feel you on the wrist pain, and the neck too, had that last week.

Congrats on the real squats, doesn't it feel great to break parallel ? I thank Crossfit for that, I wonder what I was doing in the past dude.

We have practically the same strength, I like that haha. You're my true online competition for the WODs, seriously !

TIME FOR FRAN ! haha

How come you encountered it just one time ? I did it once a month since I started crossfitting, that means I had 4 frans. There were consequences to my sub 3 minute tho, it made me cough for the rest of the day. :p

I'm going to do this one as soon as I feel recovered !

I'm not worried about you today man, you beat me at FGB, I'm sure you will make a gigantic improvement at Fran. Keep the good form and ROM on your thrusters, because when that deteriorates, it all goes downhill from there ^^

Get some ! :highfive:

Monday 31st March

FRAN

Thrusters / Chins 21/15/9 = 7.22.83 (previous 7.47)

Pathetic! Just dont get why this WOD is so hard for me. MUST DO LOADS OF WORK ON THRUSTERS. I seem to stop breathing every time i go down and i was not that tired at the end, i just could not go any faster!!:shrug:

Note to Richard V. I went past your time before i got the first 21 Thrusters.

Weighted Ring Dips x4
4k, 8k, 12k, 20k 2 reps.
Tried some HSPU but had nothing left.

That's strange. How do you perform your thrusters ? Like a fluid movement or do you clearly separate front squat and push press ?

A good fran is all about getting those thrusters sets fast and unbroken. We have a very similar squat, so I'd guess it has something to do with your overhead lifts ?

You don't feel overtrained or anything ? I'll be enjoying my extra day off tomorrow partner :D

I believe Thrusters puts together a combination of all my stability/flexibility problems. When i do my Front Squats and OHS i go down very very slow in order not to tip forward. This problem comes from years and stupid years of squats with my heals on a block of wood. Lastly my hands and wrists feel bruised and strained due to the front squat grip / false grip which means Yes Richard my Thrusters are broken on the way up and the way down and when i rush them i tip forward , which then stops my breathing. :mad: SO MUCH TO LEARN IN SO LITTLE TIME.. These problems are now my April goal. MAY 1ST FRAN UNDER FIVE

Friday 4th April
GWEN
Clean & Jerk 15/12/9

Needed that after an almost rest day yesterday. Mainly practised free standing hand stand, half hour best hold was about 5-10 seconds.

Cheers Rich, sometimes i need to be told to rest, can be so hyper active, my garden looks great now though!

Holy cow, you did another WOD after Gwen ?! That's mad AND you broke your PR :highfive:

It's funny, because I was hesitating between 55k and 60k for Gwen. After seeing the video on the main page (have you seen that guy ?!) I just told myself "what the heck" and chose 60, which was good, but 62,5 would've been perfect from the beginning, it was challenging I like this kind of workout.

It's on for tomorrow mate :)
