JC, mobility work on my shoulders and hips helped a lot with the OHS. There's plenty of strength in the legs to lift these loads, its keeping it balanced on the way up and down that presents the challenge.

12/13 WOD

Tabata L-Sits (20 on, 10 off; 8 reps)

Followed by 3 rounds for reps:
AMRAP 5 Min
5 DB Clean & Jerk Progressions (Left clean, right clean, left jerk, right jerk, left overhead lunge, right overhead lunge.)
5 Handstand Push Ups
5 Chest to Bar Pull Ups
3 Minutes rest in between the 3 AMRAPS
(Start where you left off.)

Maybe should have taken today as a rest day, very tough WOD. Tabata L-sits turned into more like 15 on, 15 off, with very bent legs and tapping my toes on the ground even when up. Ugh.

3 Rounds for Reps:
7 rounds with 25# dumbbells and one pad for handstand pushups. C&J progression was clearly the bottleneck, with HSPU's a close second. Very difficult to get down to one pad on the HSPU's, and tough to get up to handstand position after a while too. Racing with Tyler, but not really fair since he was using 40# dumbbells. Ugh.
