12/6 WOD

Back Squat
5-5-5-5-5

185-205-225-235-245f(1 only)

Still feeling very strong. First four sets felt great, although 235 was pretty heavy. Fail at 245 was purely mental. Negative thoughts started intruding even before I got under the bar. I actually loaded bar on my back and then re-racked it. By the time I got to my second rep, I was convinced I would fail. And I did. Don't forget this is as much a mental game as a physical one.

Claw: I am right there with you at the exact same weight and issues to go heavier. On the squat, as I go up in weight, I start to feel slightly dizzy at the bottom position and dont have the bumper plates in order to dump them if I fail. I think if I had the bumper plates, and the peace of mind that I could dump them, I would be able to add quite a bit of poundage. In sum, you're right, its mostly mental.

David - HA! Haven't you seen the T-shirt with "My warm up is your workout!" on it! Actually the [URL="http://crossfitwrightpatt.com/"]CFWP[/URL] has been kicking things up a notch, which is good. Heck, this is CrossFit! (I didn't mention that we played "The Pull Up Game" AKA "Death by Pull Ups" afterward & I got a nasty bruise on my left forearm! BTW, Nice work on that WOD! One of the subs for rowing is SDLHPs!! Talk about brutal!! That was a good time!!

Claw - I feel your pain! There's so much mental about lifting, jumping, etc. I'm amazed at the times I don't thing about the weight, just doing the lift, that I brake a PR!!

Perry - Way to go on Eva!! It took me over 45 mins just to do 4 rounds!!

[B]WU:[/B]
30 sec handstand
10 burpees (Yay Burpees!) + 20 lunges x 2
30 sec handstand

[B]WOD:[/B]
Power Clean 1-1-1-1-1

Where was this back during the Open!! The 155 lb barrier REALLY bothered me for a LONG time!! TOTALLY mental! I was stunned at how easy it was! But then again, last Christmas time, I could barely get 135![/I]
THEN

5 clapping push-ups
