OHS Revisited, Front Squats, Mad Dog

Posted in front squats, mad dog, overhead squats with tags , , on January 14, 2012 by coughingsparks

Has my sister in town today so we got to work out together, which was nice. She really wanted to do overhead squats and because I didn’t do great yesterday, and because Si like them, I agreed:

45×5
65×3
75×3
75×3
80×3
85×3

Not too bad. Because we had more time than I usually have, we did front squats also:

45×5
95×3
105×3
115×3
125×3
135×3

That matches last time, but oh well. Finished with Mad Dog, which is three rounds for time of:

-500m row
-21 Thrusters

Rx is 65# barbell but because of the way Island is set up, I have to
Do dumbbell thrusters, and I used 20# in each hand and got 11:16, about 50 seconds faster than last time, which is fine with me.

I was in the gym (Island) at the crack of dawn this morning because K woke up at 0445. I suppose I could have gone back to sleep but she took an hour to nurse and by then I was too awake. I also needed to go early if I was going to go because Jeff, having watched K continually for the last three days, now has a ton of stuff to do.

So there I was on little sleep, no breakfast, and no coffee. Nonetheless, I started with a 5×3 OHS and made it my bitch with a new PR:

45×5
55×3
55×3
60×3
60×3
65×3

Went on to the press, although my shoulders were a little tired:

45×5
55×3
60×3
65×3
75×3
80×3

I skipped over 70 because I wanted to hit 80 and not get fatigued beforehand. Cashed out with a WoD from last week on the Black Box, Mad Dog, which is:

Three rounds for time:
-500m row
-21 Thrusters

Rx’d for women is 65#, but I did two 20# DB in 12:04. Interestingly, I split my time almost perfectly between the row and the thrusters. Hmm.
