Deepavali! Slept in more cos 9am class :D

Today was filled with AMRAP wods with a partner. No strength/skill portion haha.

WOD 1

3 rounds –

4:00 AMRAP –
5 power cleans [(105#)]
10 GHD
– then, immediately after –
4:00 AMRAP –
5 tyre thrusters
Run 1 lap (<100m) with tyre

*For both AMRAPs, alternate with partner every round within the 4:00

After all 3 rounds, did a total of 6 sets of the clean/GHD and… probably about 9 sets of the tyre/run thing?

WOD 2

3 rounds –
4:00 AMRAP –
10-cal row
10 burpees
10 pull-ups
*Alternate with partner every 4:00. Rest when other partner is working.

For the first round of 4:00, I don’t think I even hit the pull-ups of the second set. Improved in the second round and managed 5 pull-ups! Then told myself to chiong for the last round and finally hit 2 full rounds in the last 4:00 AMRAP :D Happy! But really damn shag.

Partnered Joyce for the wods today cos my partner overslept -.-

Anyway, went for lunch with the young clique after wod! Had Sushi Express at nex~ It was supposed to be breakfast… but by the time we were all done showering and deciding on a place to eat, it was close to lunch time LOL.

Warm-up

5 rounds –
5 reps wall walk up and down 10kg plate(???)

Hahahaha. No idea what to call this warm-up… Basically there will be a bumper plate (lower one for girls) laid flat just in front of the wall, then had to go up to a wall walk position such that the plate ends up being somewhere under your head (sorta). Then, as though doing a HS walk, walk up and down the plate – moving one hand at a time. Right up, left up, right down, left down = 1 rep. (Not sure if I’ll understand this explanation when I look back on this log LOL).

Shoulders were really quite fried by that. It wasn’t easy T_T Plus my lats were dying from yesterday’s workout already.

But we still had to do our usual –

10-1 HSPUs
Shuttle run after each set

WOD

3 rounds –
10 deadlift (225#) [2x 92.6kg/205#, 1x 97.6kg/215#]
25 GHD
15-cal bike

Spent so long on the deadlifts >< RX too heavy for me cos that’s actually my 1 RM??? But still wanted to go as close as possible…. and decided to add weight on the last round just to try! Glad I did it though was dying D: My form was prolly getting bad haha.

After wod –

75 back extensions with 6kg ball

Rained super heavily just as I was about to leave my house this morning. I was already changed and ready to go… so I just went in the rain >< It wasn’t raining at hub though haha.

Strength/skill

Back squats –
2 x 7 @ 75% [69.4kg]
2 x 5 @ 80% [74.4kg]
2 x 3 @ 85% [78.5kg]

9:00 EMOM squat snatch –
0:00-2:00 3 reps [37.7kg]
3:00-5:00 2 reps [42.7kg, 2x 46.8kg]
6:00-8:00 1 rep [51.8kg, 2x 55.8kg]

Missed the first 55.8kg and did a super ugly one for the next 55.8kg…. not even sure whether it was counted as a rep lol. Oh well ><

Weights for snatches and squats were actually slightly lighter than last week lol. But I guess it partially due to the time of day I wodded too :P Went for evening class last week! = more energy/more awake to lift heavier LOL.

WOD

“Fight gone bad”
3 rounds, *1:00 AMRAP per movement –
Cal row
Wall balls
Box jumps
SDLHP [(65#)]
Push press
Rest
*actually just 0:45 work, remaining 0:15 used to change stations

For first 2 rounds, I did about 12 reps for everything except 15 for wall balls and 7-cal for row. On the last round, did 15 reps for everything and 10-cal row.

The morning after bbq.

The wod involved prowlers… something I have not done in a reallyyyy long time cos I don’t go for tyre flip days which is when prowlers are used lol :P

Partner WOD

28 rounds of “The Chief” –
3 power cleans [(105#)]
6 push ups
9 air squats
*after 4 rounds, do one lap of prowler each [prowler loaded with 60kg]

So it was 7 laps of prowler for each person today. Partner and I have never done 60kg on the prowler ever since moving to the new box… where we push the prowler on the gravel road (more friction so harder!). But we could do it! :D Just that legs would feel like jelly after each lap HAHA.

Anyway, it started out with 40 rounds of  “The Chief” but it was not possible to finish within the duration of the class so it was reduced! When the rounds were changed, Anny and I were already at our last set of prowlers (i.e. 7th round) haha. And when we finished, we had about 10min left so decided to just squeeze in another round! So we did 32 rounds of “The Chief” and 8 laps of prowler! :D

We actually went for gymnastics class after that. It was not too bad today. Finally it’s not handstand drills day for the class haha.

Strength/skill

3 x 5 thrusters [(95#)]
3 x 3 thrusters [(105#)]
3 x 1 thrusters [(125#)

Waaa I actually made the 125# one! First time doing thrusters at 125# hahaha. Is it I PR LOL x)  Didn’t TnG for the 5 reps sets; max I could do was 3 haha. But managed TnG for the 105# though! :) I missed one of the 125# but tried again and made it!

WOD

3 rounds –
12 DB reverse lunges (22.5kg) [20kg]
9 DB C&J [17.5kg]
6 pull-ups + 6 ring dips (rx: 6 bar MUs)

It was initially written as 5 rounds but coach changed it to 3 – I guess after seeing that a lot of us were struggling hahaha. Seriously though, the wod looked ok… but when I got to it, it was quite intense. I think the DB C&Js were the worst. You see, I didn’t even rx the DB movements ><

Anyway I ended up doing 4 rounds cos there was about 10min left for me to do my last round… which was sufficient! And there were still a lot of people doing the wod. So yep, decided to go for it instead of just ending early hahah. Such a shag (unexpectedly) wod though ><

Mid autumn festival today! So our warm-up portion involved lanterns.

So… we were supposed to row and let the wind from rowers blow out the candles in the paper lanterns. There were holes cut in the paper lanterns so that the wind can enter.

BUT no matter how hard we rowed, the flames were superrr hard to extinguish. I think the success rate was only 20% or something LOL. When candles were extinguished, “lighters” had to light them up again… but it was a rare occurrence cos the flames were almost always there hahaha.

It was a bit messy when we first started cos we didn’t know the order to rotate stations! It got better, but I thought it was a bit strange that each station has 3 people but we were told to get into pairs. Aiya, but somehow we made it work eventually hahaha.

Anyway, each “station” was set up like that! Lanterns in front of the rowers.

After this, we got to the wod.

WOD

20-cal bike
100 DUs
8 laps bumper plate run [35#]
100 DUs
20-cal bike

When we were done, it was mid autumn special part 2 HAHA. Mooncake eating! We did various static holds –

Hang from bar
Handstand position against wall
Plank
Side plank (with some “abs rotation”)
Sitting position against wall with angles raised

Whoever dropped from the position/hold first had to eat the mooncake. I didn’t eat any this year haha! Last year, I ate cos I dropped from plank hold first… and I did a 4min hold at least!

No mooncake from the holds, but after class, went to try the mooncake that David brought yesterday. Shared half with Coach and one bite to Yuren. It was some champagne truffle mooncake from Raffles Hotel. Niceeee hehe.

Evening class todayyyy.

Woke up feeling a bit sick again. So decided to sleep in. I was actually sniffing the whole morning in office D: But it got better after lunch. After we had mini hotpot hahaha.

Strength/skill

Back squats –
2 x 7 @ 70% [66.8kg]
2 x 5 @ 80% [71.8kg, 75.8kg]
2 x 3 @ 85% [80.8kg]

9:00 EMOM squat snatch –
0:00-2:00 3 reps [35kg]
3:00-5:00 2 reps [44.1kg]
6:00-8:00 1 rep [49.1kg, 2x 53.1kg]

Was thinking of just sticking to 49.1kg cos I “zek-ed” my left butt doing back squats…… lol. But coach saw and told me “just add the 10# laaa”, then she even went to take 10# plates out from another bar when she saw that there was no more 10# plates in the stack HAHA. So ok, added 10# on each side for the last 2 sets. Manageable la haha.

WOD

3 rounds –
30 hang power clean [(85#)]
30 wall balls
30-cal bike

Wa since I knew the wod from those who went in the morning, I’ve been excited hahaha. So many cleans! And hang power movements are my fav! I used to hate them cos the range of motion was so short so it felt harder to get heavier weights up… but I have now found out how efficient they are and I LUV ITTT HAHA. Plus there are wall balls!

Not sure how long I took to finish but I guess it’s about 30min. Well, at least I finished with 5 min to spare before end of class hahaha. I could string 10 cleans each time! Until my last round where I strung 10, then had to use 3 sets to complete the remaining 20 reps lol (shag). It was a fun wod hehehe :D But I was soooo sweaty after it. One of the more sweaty wods imo.
