On the whole, it's probably worth the tradeoff. Congrats! Deadlift PR's are among the best PR's!

11/4 WOD

5 Rounds for Time
6 Handstand Push Ups
12 Chest to Bar Pull Ups
24 Walking Overhead Lunges (45#/25#)

17:46 with one pad on HSPU. All of these movements presented ROM difficulties. After a few HSPU's it's hard to get head all the way down to tap the pad, and I missed a few. On C2B pull ups, I tended to have enough height but had difficulties pulling my chest in to touch the bar. And after a few, getting the height was a challenge too. With both HSPU's and C2B's, when I noticed ROM deteriorating I stopped and took a short breather so as not to continue with increasingly poor form. Walking OH lunges were just tough, and again I did not succeed in getting knees to kiss ground on each step. Plenty of opportunity for improvement.

On the other hand, starting a day with HSPU's and C2B is just so bad-@$$ I'm going to be feeling awesome all day!

Nice long warm up, me and my buddy Mark.

Then 21-15-9
Kb swings 45#
Sit-ups (abmat)
Double unders (3x single unders)

6:15

Short and intense. This was our first WOD back in the box since Sept 9th. Felt frigging awesome.

Also a PR of sorts: Did a HSPU to an abmat placed on one 45# plate. The lowest I had gone previously was to two 45# plates with an abmat. I think I already posted my 3 consecutive kipping pull-ups. If not, I repeated tonight.

Was feeling high at the time as PRed in DL, Presses and squats for 3 reps. Now...it doesn't feel as exciting. Just hurts. If Im not injured it's worth it. If so, I'll be mumbling to myself until the next PR attempt. Tomorrow will tell.

45kg/1+1
45kg/0 (no tight no bounce. Pretty shook here.)
45kg/1+1 (4) these were all ok, landing & bounce is back;
the last one of these he said he was proud of, absolutely perfect he couldnt ask me to change a thing. He was happy with the comeback. I was still disappointed. Even Justin said, she can pull the bar to her head; and he agreed "we know she can pull the bar...''. Embarrassing day in the gym.
My jerks today, although a couple my split wasnt wide as it could be, were all good). I told him, the cleans I missed felt like I caught a little forward. He said screw "feeling." Dont feel, just lift.

Last 2 sets, went to the bottom and no prob w/bounce. I dont get it.
He made Justin babysit me b/c he was leaving. I really didnt need the spot. On the last set, I bounced and up; Justin told me, 'again - that was easy'; 2nd rep - 'up, up. One more... push your knees out.... SEE?' I do need to remember to shove them out.

3 sets alternating bench and deadhang pull ups: 205 x 4; 10 pull ups
3 sets alternating bench and deadhang pull ups: 185 x 6; 10 pull ups
3 sets alternating bench and deadhang pull ups: 135 x 12: 10 pull ups

3 sets alternating flyes and hammer curls: 50 x 12; 45 x 8

Did all pull ups underhand grip so a real biceps burner.

Core routine and lots of stretching.

Back loosening up.
