6/15 WOD

21 Thrusters (95#/65#)
50 Double Unders
21 Pull Ups
40 Double Unders
15 Thrusters
30 Double Unders
15 Pull Ups
20 Double Unders
9 Thrusters
10 Double Unders
9 Pull Ups

This was as bad as it looks. Thrusters and pull ups killed double unders, and double unders killed thrusters and pull ups. By the end I was doing sets of 3's for both thrusters and pull ups. Link to today's whiteboard (WFS): [url][/url]

The good news is it gets easier as you get older based on the great times like a 1k total. Stick around here to get inspired by fellow elders.

I have been hitting it hard lately did 3 rounds of Barbra it took a long time but I didn't quit.

Last night practice form OH squat and snatch, which turned into power snatch.

6/17 WOD (Saturday)

"The Vortex"
Run 2400M, every minute on the minute alternate 10 squats, 8 jump lunges.

We ran 12 laps of our roughly 200 meter parking lot loop. The spot where the "minute on the minute" happened slowly creeped backwards, meaning I ran probably 190 meters or so after doing my 10 squats or 8 jump lunges. Link to whiteboard (WFS): [url][/url]

This was originally designed with push ups, which I think would be a great travel WOD; i.e. run on treadmill from 1 to 2 miles or so and every minute on the minute alternate 10 pushups, 10 squats (or really anything like 10 dumbell/kettlebell swing, 5 burpees, 5 pullups, etc.)

Claw, killer workout.

Bill, that's being creative when time and priority keeps us from the box.

10 minutes to get to highest clean and jerk. 215#.

25 mountain climbers
7 clean & jerk @ 70% (145#)

10 front levers on rings
Could only do 8.

6/18 WOD

Muscle Up and Snatch work
Did a couple muscle ups, which went fine. Pleased with squat snatch, did a few at 85# which really seemed to click.

Dynamic Bench Press (10 fast, powerful, unbroken reps)
3 Min rest between sets
It was a struggle toward last reps to really explode 115 up, so I think I picked a good weight.

1 Mile Run For Time
Our "mile" must be a little long, because this is quite a bit off my old time for the old "CPC mile." I felt like I was making a good time. Some soreness in right shin starting at warm up run and then came back and spread to both shins on the run. Didn't affect my performance, but I'm curious where it came from. Maybe "Vortex" run on Saturday? Link to today's whiteboard (WFS): [url][/url]
