Back to back

Posted in back squats, box jumps, burpees, christine, cleans, dead lifts, fran, jerk, kettle bells, rowing, snatches, wall ball on May 26, 2017 by coughingsparks

Tuesday I went to the gym late in the day, which I don’t usually do. First was Christine, 3 RFT:

-500m row
-21 BW DL (208#)
-21 box jumps

This took forever, 31:33. I don’t think it was supposed to take that long, but I pulled those reps one at a time and it took a while.

Following that, I was supposed to have done 20-minute EMOM, another “stamina:”

-Even: 12-calorie row
-Odd: 15 wall balls

I made it through eight minutes of this and then stopped. I think this was supposed to be one of those days that’s divided, but obviously that’s not practical most days.

Wednesday: I went back the following morning, which didn’t go very well, but at least the lifts were light:

1.) Power clean: 110x3x3
2.) Clean pull: 125x3x3
3.) Back squat: 130x3x3
4.) Fran: 21-15-9
-Thrusters 65#

This was about my slowest Fran ever, almost doubling my time at 15:31. Again, doing the pull-ups one at a time.

Today was:

1.) Snatch:

2.) Clean and Jerk:

3.) Front squat: 115x3x5

4.) 4 RFT:
-15 calorie row (was supposed to be the Airdyne, but they were all in use)
-18 wall balls
-15 KB swings 35#
-12 Burpees

This went better than I thought it would, at 15:53. Finished up with mobility.

Saturday was:

-40-30-20-10 DU
-30-25-20-15 Wall balls
-16-12-8-4 TTB

12-minute cap

Subbed in GHD sit-ups and got 10:51

Yesterday I struck out on my own because the WoD was some sort of infinity ladder with thrusters and burpees. Did 3RM on back squat and got 185#. Did a WoD of 7-minute AMRAP:

-9 box jumps
-12 air squats
-15 GHD sit-ups

I don’t remember what I got, six maybe?

Today I was back in with everyone else and did the WoD, which was a 12-minute AMRAP:

-30 DU
-30s plank
-3 DL (265#/185#)

Got 6 + 20. The plank was supposed to be weighted, but no.

More open gym

Posted in rowing, wall ball on January 10, 2017 by coughingsparks

Made up my own metcon again today, 4 RFT:

-500m row
-20 wall balls

This was awkward AF because I was sort of wall-balling with one hand, but I only missed once and got 13:03. It was exhausting, so that was good.

Posted in box jumps, burpees, cleans, dead lifts, double unders, knees-to-elbows, pull-ups, push-ups, snatches, wall ball on January 3, 2017 by coughingsparks

Friday: 0:00 – 8:00: AMRAP:

-8 HSPU (push-ups)
-10 Squat snatch (115/85)
-15 box jumps

8:00 – 15:00: establish 1RM snatch

I don’t remember what I got for the first one, five and something maybe with 55#. I did meet my snatch PR at 115#, but of course it was a power snatch.

Saturday: 22-minute relay-style partner AMRAP:

-8 bar-over burpees
-6 front racked lunges 135/95
-4 muscle ups

We did it with 65# and regular pull-ups (or jumping pull-ups) and got 10 plus something.

Monday: Squat clean, which was 150# and then 6-minute AMRAP:

25 bar-facing burpee buy in and then:
-4 DL at clean weight
-40 DU

Did 20 DU and got 2 plus something. It was slow, it was the slowest in class.

Today: 15-minute AMRAP:

-5 squat snatch (185/125)
-10 TTB
-15 Wall ball

I started at 55 and had to drop to 35, unfortunately and did KTC and got 6 plus something.

Posted in dead lifts, double unders, grace, isabel, jerk, karen, knees-to-elbows, pull-ups, rowing, wall ball on December 28, 2016 by coughingsparks

Friday: Merry Christmas from the Girls: for time:

Isabel: 30 snatches (135#/95#)
Grace: 30 clean and jerk
Karen: 150 wall ball
Amanda: 9-7-5 ring muscle ups/squat snatch

30- minute time cap

I made it through 9 pull-ups of Amanda, but TBH, I didn’t really want to do the squat snatch at all, even pulled back to 65#, which is what I would have had to have done. I also did Karen really, really slowly. The good news is that I PR’d my Isabel by a minute and a half, down from about 7 1/2 minutes to 6:04.

Monday: FT:

-1000m row buy-in, then
5 RFT:
-15 pull-ups
-7 push jerks (135#/95#)

I cut the pull-ups back to 8 and finished in 12:27 or something.

Tuesday: 5 squat cleans x7, up 5# since last week. This did not go all that well, I did mostly sets of 3 at 125#. The WoD was 7 minutes x30 seconds on, 30 seconds off of bar-facing burpees. I got 42, consistently getting 6 each round.

Today: 14-minute AMRAP:
-50 DU
-40 Wall balls
-30 DL (115#/75#)
-20 TTB

I got 1 + 125.

Crossfit Cough

Posted in burpees, cleans, dead lifts, knees-to-elbows, wall ball on December 16, 2016 by coughingsparks

Yesterday was 3 squat cleans, 2 front squats, adding 5# from last week, which was 115#. It’s getting heavy. The odd thing is that the squat cleans aren’t too bad, but the front squats are. The WoD was, for time:

-25 burpees
-800m run (row)

Before the WoD started, I said, “if I get it under five minutes, it’ll be a miracle.” Well, amen. When I don’t have to jump over anything, I’m actually kinda quick, so I finished it in 4:35. So that’s good.

Today’s WoD was five rounds of 2 minutes:

-12 DL (225#/155#)
-12 TTB
-AMRAP Wall-balls
-1 minute rest

I did well at this one also, scaled the TTB down to KTC and was the highest score so far that day and the first three-digit number at 101.
