Re: Its me and it's her (the wife)

Well today was my first and last chance to complete 15.1 and 15.1A

The reason for going scaled is that I have a shoulder that has been giving me grief the past 6-8 weeks and I am not going to take any chances with it. The snatch irritates it allot and takes longer for me to recover and I do not want to take pain killers for it, I'm not 20 anymore

So today for me and the wife (wife did not sign up for the open but I did)
Scaled men & women 18-54)
Complete as many rounds and reps as possible in 9 minutes of:
15 hanging knee raises
10 deadlifts (85 / 55 lb.)
5 snatches* (85 / 55 lb.)
* ground-to-overhead allowed

1-rep-max clean and jerk
6-minute time cap

180 reps
187lbs clean and jerk

148 reps
80lbs clean and jerk

I was please with the result but I could have gone 200lbs but did not have time, I think I started off a little light from the start at 154lbs but that's the way it goes.

The wife was pleased but not this the C&J. The wife pressed up 80lbs rather than jerking it up as she was tired but I told her to use the legs. She can easily get another 20lbs+.

So what do we take from today.... more C&J to really find out the 1rep max and do the workout twice so as to plan better.
Better than today, stronger than tomorrow.
