5/31 WOD

On the minute every minute for 10 minutes:
1 Snatch balance + 1 Overhead squat (chose a challenging weight)

Followed by:
On the minute every minute for 10 minutes:
1 Full snatch with same weight as above

Followed by:
AMRAP 10 Minutes
3 dead-hang pull-ups (strict, no movement below the hips)
3 ring dips

Snatch balance to OHS 75#
Full snatch 85#.
AMRAP lost count, high teens probably.

I thought the WOD today had both good and bad features. The snatch balance to snatch overhead squat drill was a good idea and helped me execute some of my better squat snatches. However, three ten-minute segments was too long, particularly with 14 athletes. (By the way, Zach did a great job of pacing and pushing us through, but we still ran over by a few minutes.)

The AMRAP 10 of strict pull ups and ring dips was too much, both in terms of it being a third 10-minute segment, and also it was a lot of work given all the work we had done leading up to it. (Also, I lost track of the AMRAP rounds. I estimated I did two rounds per minutes, but Mike Mac SB and Parkour James both reported less than 20, so I think my reported score of 20 was too high.)

Claw I am glad I am not the only one with Wod amnesia.

I may never know how many rounds of Cindy I can do.

I normally grab a stack of poker chips that we have at the box for this reason to count rounds. I just move one chip from one stack to another when I finish a round, then count chips at end. I forgot to grab a stack of chips this time. :shrug:

We have been doing Hero workouts all week. I missed Monday as I was moving my office. It was an IKEA day---assembling bookcases and chairs. My daughter got all my old This End Up furniture. Just too bulky for the new office.

Today we did:

Posted on May 31, 2012 by jake

“Jag 28”

For time:
Run 800 meters
28 Kettlebell swings, 2 pood
28 Strict Pull-ups
28 Kettlebell clean and jerk, 2 pood each
28 Strict Pull-ups
Run 800 meters

Finished in 19:28. Did 1.5 pood swings and 1 pood Cl&J. Rowed. Actually the pull ups were the only thing that was not scaled.

Wednesday we did "Klepto". Fuzzy on what that was other than long and hard.

6/2 WOD (Saturday)

Pick three of five exercises to get on new Record Boards.
Max pull ups: 30
Tabata Squats: 18
Max push ups (full ROM): 39

We'll see what the boards show....


6/4 WOD

3 x Max Strict Chin-ups (hands are supine)
3 Min rest between sets
11, 10, 6.

3 Rounds for reps:
1 Min row (cal) = 21, 17, 18
1 Min rest
1 Min knees to elbows = 21, 21, 20
1 Min rest
1 Min narrow grip bench press (75#/45#) = 34, 24, 21
1 Min rest

Not much to say here except I was pleased there was not a greater drop off in anything (except bench press, where the arms just stopped working).


PS. Looks like this is the 8,000th post in this thread. That's pretty cool.
