The Dreaded Open

Posted in burpees, front squats with tags , on February 28, 2012 by coughingsparks

So I’m finally back up on my front squats, although I’m not breaking any records:

45×5
85×5
95×5
105×5
115×5
125×5

I finished with the open WoD that’s been going around, which is one of the qualifiers for the games, which is AMRepsAP in seven minutes of burpees. I managed 77, but I’m sure I didn’t meet the standard of six inches each time. I was hoping for 80, but knew 75 might be more realistic. Whatever, it was still awful.

Pretty Fast Row

All the squat racks were tied up when I got to the gym today so I decided to grit my teeth and do a 5k row. I hate this row; it always seems interminable and my leg goes all tingly and it just sucks. But, surprisingly, I got my second-fastest time ever today at 20:48. My PR is 20:35, so I really can’t complain.

DL & Just Nine Minutes

45×5
135×5
155×5
175×5
195×5
205×5
205×5

Finished with Just Nine Minutes, which is three rounds AMRepsAP of (65#)

-One minute HPC
-One minute front squat
-One minute push press
-One minute rest

Got 143, which is a decent improvement from 121.

Clean & Swing

Today’s WoD was one from earlier in the week from CFNYC: every minute on the minute do 3 cleans and 6 KB swings. I managed with 95#/35#. I missed a clean in Round 11, but did an extra one Round 20, so hopefully that counts.

Last Two Days

The Chief

Did a CFNYC WoD today that was posted several days ago called The Chief, which is 5 rounds of AMRAP in three minutes plus one minute rest of:

-3 cleans (135#/95#)
-6 push-ups
-9 air squats

Did a grand total of 15 rounds, as Rx’d, even the push-ups.

Good.

Press Yesterday, DL Today

Posted in dead lifts, fran, presses with tags , , on February 14, 2012 by coughingsparks

Didn´t have time for anything yesterday but a 5×3 press, which was as follows:

45×5
65×3
75×3
85×3
90×3
95×3

I think that meets my 3RM

Did a 5×3 DL today:

45×5
135×3
155×3
175×3
195×3
215×3
225×3

OK, I guess. Finished up with Fran, 21-15-9 65 pound thrusters and under-bar rows at 6:25, a minute faster than last time, so it ain´t all bad.
