AEB Workout Log
 
1 year at CFCC (my how time flys), so maybe it's time to record on something other than my phone.

Hang power snatches today, which somehow feel stunted and odd, not quite the blue balls of snatching, but you get the picture.

On the plus side, I have an 88# snatch (jokes never get old) from the hang, so I'd hope I can add at least 10#, hopefully 12# off the floor.

Oly lifting class Saturday will either prove me correct or incorrect.

Metcon was 5 minutes of toes to bar (at which I do not excel) which I half-assed as my hands hurt from hang snatching.

Rest day mysteriously coinciding with Kalsu ata the gym. I have no idea how that happened.

2 workouts tomorrow will make up for today's deficit.

Same thing happened to me. I mysteriously had a motion for summary judgment that was calling my name today, begging to be written. Still at it at 10:50pm.

I'm not quite sure how this happened, but the snatch has become one of my strong lifts. I'm up to 90# off the floor, and I failed 95# over my head, so I can probably get that when I'm not tired.

I did strict oly for 90 minutes at 10.30 then a normal class with snatch balances (up to 63#x3 because...whatever)

Metcon of 1 pood RKB and pullups 3/3, 6/6, 9/9...

I used 2 mini bands, and I will be annoyed with myself until I never have to use a band again. Ever.

Snatch jumps:

53x2
53x2
62x3
70x2
77x2
77x2
82x2
86x1
90x2
95x3 fails

Wiz, hi! You're the only one who knows I'm here

I don't think I could feel more broken today and still have full body faculties.

Workout was a Mainpage chipper:

70 burpees
60 situps
50 Kettlebell Swings (RKB) 1 pood
40 pullups (LB)
30 pushups

This took 22.31. Last time I did it with jumping pullups in 20.16. I'm dying inside.

Peak week starts tomorrow, starting with front squats.

Re: AEB Workout Log
 
I've started peak week by being piqued. I'm fairly confident that I got at least 3 hours of sleep last night, but I wouldn't put money on it.

I was hoping that the same miracle that got me to the gym today would also allow me to PR my front squat, but I see that nothing is that strong.

Front squat jumps:
95x3
125x2
145x2
165x1
175x1
185xfail

PR is still 180#

WOD was tabata row. I think it's the first time I've done this at 869 meters once the counter stopped ticking entirely.

Yesterday was an impromptu rest day, but it appears to have worked in my favor for Peak Week Sumo Deadlifting.

My new max is 220#, 5# below my conventional max, which will hopefully increase in the next cycle. I hear we're "back to basics" next week (come on back squatting!).

Metcon was 50 burpees for time, jumping to a 45# plate as opposed to an overhead clap. I'm super slow at burpees. Time: 4.51

DL Jumps:

115x3
145x2
185x1
200x1
210x1 (old PR)
220x1 (New PR)

Re: AEB Workout Log
 
Peak week continues to work in my favor. I can now snatch 43kg/95#. I failed on 43kg twice before I got it up, but hte first time I failed behind myself, so I can likely get a little more up.

I'm hoping the snatch work bodes well for my Clean and Jerk as I've done neither in ages and we have a C&J ladder in Saturday's competition.

Snatch Jumps:
53x2
64x2
73x2
79x2
86x1
90x1
95x1 (2 fails)
