4/16 WOD

A. 10:00 Practice: Muscle Up
EMOTM, 12:00
Odd- 10 KBS
Even- 10 KB Sumo Deadlift High Pulls
Rest 2:00 to switch
EMOTM, 12:00
Odd- 10 Dumbell Thrusters
Even- 10 PVC Situps
Coach's Notes: Weights chosen should be challenging but allow for sets to be unbroken

Got a couple muscle ups in the 10:00 of practice. Still missing more than I’m getting them. I really need to commit 100%; i.e. huge kip and arms in tight to body.

Was a little frightened by the prospect of using the 2 pood kettlebell for the swings and SDHP’s, but the 1.5 was too easy, so for the second and all subsequent rounds I did one-arm KB snatches (RKC style) instead of two-handed swings. Great idea!

Picked 25# dumbells for thrusters but switched to 35# before we started. 35# turned out to be too heavy, so for the second and all subsequent rounds I used 30#. They were still heavy but I really tried to get fully down into the squat each one. My left arm was starting to fail on the press the last couple reps of the last set.

Nice WOD, more fun than it looked on the board this morning.

Wendler 5/3/1
Month 2, Week 3
Squat Day



Tabata Flutter Kicks

New 1RMs for calibrating next month's weights: BP-225, DL-325, BS-260. These are probably all on the conservative side, but at my age and with the rest I am able to get, I want to take it slow as far as ramping up. Goal is 1000 CFT by end of year.
