Know when to say when

Posted in klepto with tags on April 7, 2012 by coughingsparks

I’ve decided that I need some harder, longer metcon on occasion, recognizing that, more often than not, it will be at the cost of a heavy lift. Today it didn’t really matter because the WoD had a pretty decent lift built right in. I decided to do CFNYC’s Hero WoD, which was Klepto, four rounds for time of:

-27 Box Jumps 24″/20″
=20 Burpees
-11 Squat cleans 145#/100#

Why the weird numbers? Well, Air Force Major David “Klepto” L. Brodeur, God rest his heroic soul, died on 4/27/2011, so…

Anyway, I did three rounds at 85# in 21:23. My form on the cleans really broke down and I didn’t want to get hurt so I decided to stop. Also doing box jumps THEN burpees THEN fairly heavy squat cleans is fairly rough on the quads.

And, and! I need to do SDLHP way more often. My legs are so incredibly sore today. I like them, too.
