Side note: I am really happy it’s the new month cos I’ve spent too much in Sept and I can finally “reset” my budget!!!

We did team series events today. Apparently they didn’t do it yesterday haha. But cos there were so many people, we didn’t synchro the movements. It was just done as though we were doing the events alone hahaha.

I felt SO SHAGGG. Mentally and physically. I blame the sun yesterday.

And “Murph”. Or’d rather our variation of it… cos there were MORE PULL-UPS TODAY. AND RING DIPS. My shoulders and arms cry in pain T_T

“Team series event 5” (modified)
15:00 AMRAP –
3, 6, 9, 12, 15, etc…
Burpee box jumps
Deadlifts [(155#)]

“Team series event 6” (not synchronised)
21-15-9
DB snatches [(15kg)]
Bar MUs (scaled down to same reps of pull-ups and ring dips)

I shared equipment with Joyce. We did event 6 first. I was really dying at the pull-ups and ring dips LOL. My first few pull-ups especially were like shit cos it just felt damn effortful to pull myself up!

Then there was 5-7min of rest before we moved to event 5. The deadlifts killed me though it was just the usual 155# T_T I was doing them so slowly LOL. But ok, managed up to round of 18 reps. I completed the 18 deadlifts but not burpee box jumps.

Warm-up

4:00 AMRAP with PVC pipe –
10 OHS
10 BTN Sott’s press
10 shoulder pass throughs (while squatting)

We did team series events 1 and 2 today! Went for 12nn class and there were only 6 of us lol, and 4 of us are from 7am classes so it was sorta like weekday morning classes haha! There was so much space! :D

WOD

“Event 1”
9-15-21
Thrusters [(65#)] – take turns with partner, reps not shared
Synchro burpees

– Rest 2 min –

“Event 2”
120 DUs – per person
120 C2B – shared reps with partner
120 hang snatch [(65#)] – shared reps with partner
120 DUs – per person

Happy that Anny also came at 12nn today (cos she decided to sleep in; I had work in the morn) so I had a partner! :) We finished event 1 in ~10:05. Quite proud of our synchro burpees cos was quite synchro when I saw the short snippet that Xin posted on the hub insta haha!

We started event 2 at 12:00 (after the rest). Finished everything at 44:25! Could have finished earlier together if I DU-ed faster hahaha. I had 20 left when Anny already finished hers! Was slow for the first set of DUs too :P Oh, and I ripped my right hand from C2B >< Wa really put in effort to get my chest to touch the bar cos Xin emphasized it a lot today hahaha.

Finally back to cf after 3 days. Rest day + day I had to reach work early to surprise big boss (-.-) + cousin’s wedding.

Partner wod today and I partnered Whitney. She’s too fast for me T_T I choose to believe that it’s the power of youth HAHAHA.

Shared reps with partner –
60 deadlifts [(105#)]
30 burpees
60 power cleans
30 burpees
60 push jerks
30 burpees
60 thrusters
30 burpees

Whitney said she wanted to add another 2.5kg on each side before the wod…. I was like noooo >< Cos I would definitely have died at the thrusters. Even at 105# I was doing 4 reps at a time on average. After Whitney finished her share or 30 reps (she finished earlier cos she was doing 6 at a time), she continued to alternate with me on the thrusters till I finished my 30. So she did like 30+ while I only did 30 lol. Crazyyyy ><

There was time left so did some ring holds..

5:00 EMOM –
0:10 hold at top, then go to bottom position of ring dip and hold another 0:10
0:40 rest

I actually went for gymnastics class today! LOL. Cos was waiting to go for Calvin’s bday lunch anyway haha. Learnt that my handstand holds are always tilted to one side cos of my crooked spine T_T When coach Cheryl shifted my body position straight, I feel as though I’m slanted… but I know that’s actually the correct position lol.

Warm-up

3 rounds –
HS hold while partner completes 10 burpees, swap

Though it looks little, my shoulders/arms were so tired after this LOL.

Push jerk –
4 x 2 [46.8kg to 60.8kg]
2 x 1 [64.9kg, 69.9kg – failed]

Been a while since I matched PR for jerk! I think my PR is 70kg? Haha.

Romanian deadlifts –
2 x 5 [55.8kg, 60.8kg]
3 x 3 [64.9kg]

Supposed to be 5 x 3 but Anny and I stopped after 3 sets cos it was alr 7.20am lol – no time to finish wod! :P

12 deadlifts [(185#)]

All my usual partners didn’t come today, but it was partner wod… so I partnered Coach haha! A bit the stress, but it was actually ok la :P

70 rounds, alternate with partner –
1 thruster [(105#)]
2 front squats
3 burpee over bar

About 40-45min to finish. Thankfully it was only 1 thruster each round haha. I think there was once we did a similar format workout and it was 3 thrusters…. that was bad ><

CF log 02/09/17 (Sat)

Partner wod again! :D I really love partner wods cos it feels like you are really working out with a buddy towards a common goal and we can push each other! I mean, can do that for normal wods too but I guess the feeling is just kinda diff? :P

Shared reps with a partner –
100 strict pull-ups
200 back extensions with medicine ball [(6kg)]
100 hang power snatch – 5 burpees each time you breakĀ [(85#)]

Pull-ups took quite a while. But cos Anny and I did it first, I think we didn’t take overly long since we still had strength/energy to pull ourselves hahaha.

I split my snatches in sets of 7 on average so minimised the number of burpees I had to do yayyy haha. I’d rather push myself to do more snatches than more burpees.

Wow, back for strength day after prolly at least a month?! Cos I always rest on strength day hahaha. I decided to go large part cos I WAS ON LEAVE :D :D :D

And….. we’re still doing the usual squats, still having some variation of deadlifts and presses.

Oh but one special thing is that we had Yuren’s birthday “wod” before the usual strength stuff! (And a matcha crepe cake to celebrate after class.)

For Yuren’s birthday, 24 reps of each movement shared with partner –
Yellow KB swings
U-ups
Ring dips (ughhhh haha)
Elevated push ups
Nine-count burpees

Then usual strength day stuff.

15:00 EMOM back squats –
5:00 5 reps [60.8kg]
5:00 3 reps [69.4kg]
5:00 1 rep [3x 78.5kg, 2x 82.5kg]

My right knee hurt (maybe cos I pulled it or something??) after the 2nd/3rd minute -.- But I managed to tahan till end of the first 5 min before getting my knee sleeve lol. Thankfully it helped and I just didn’t really push myself too much anymore for the remaining sets :P Otherwise I think I could have at least gone heavier for the 1 rep sets haha.

15:00 EMOM deadlift, 3-sec pause at shin and knee position [55.8kg]

New variation of deadlifts. Quite back-breaking despite the not too heavy weight…

7 x 3
BTN strict press [24.1kg to 31.6kg]
Bench press [40kg to 44.1kg, 46.6kg assisted]

Felt like there was not enough time to finish everything today. Or maybe cos we did too slowly hahaha. Went for evening class and partnered Yzanne cos I didn’t feel too well in the morning :P

Strength/skill

Squat snatch –
3 x 2 [started with 35kg]
5 x 1 [went up to 53.1kg]

Wanted to try for 58.1kg but accidentally loaded the bar unevenly such that one side had an added 2.5kg while the other side didn’t LOL. So it was only 55.6kg, which I actually snatched up despite feeling the uneveness hahahaha :P When we corrected the uneveness and I tried again, I failed oops.

Squat clean & jerk –
3 x 2 [started with 44.1kg]
5 x 1 [went up to 64.7kg]

We ended the clean and jerks before completing all 5 sets of 1 :P We were only at our 3rd rep haha. I actually can’t remember if I ended at 64.7kg or 67.2kg… but let’s take the more conservative figure ya? The weight actually felt pretty ok, so I prolly would have added for the next rep if we continued (and hopefully clear it)!

5 x 3 back squats [~75kg to 90.8kg]

Again, can’t remember what weight we ended with cos we just kept adding without really counting. And we added in increments that was not my usual weights + we used the 10kg instead of 25# plate D: We mayyy have ended at 93.3kg, but again, taking the more conservative weight here hahaha.

Yeppp so the strength portion was really long today. And we didn’t even manage to finish before going to the wod, which thankfully was pretty short!

WOD

3 rounds –
10 C2B
10 front squats [(115#)]
10 burpees

Took about 10min to complete. Front squats were bad for me T_T Only managed to string for the first round, then did 5-5 for subsequent ones haha. My legs and back were giving way :P

CF log 19/08/17 (Sat)

Wod was pretty crazy today. Really would feel like puking going through it :P Thought there might be a chance it was gonna be partner style… but NO D:

30 pull-ups
30 ring dips
30 GHD
30 alternating pistols
30-cal row
30 power snatch [(85#)]
30 OHS
*EMOM 3 burpees

Burpees were quite the killer after a while. My last few rounds, I took 30sec just for 3 burpees lol. Finished before the 30min mark, but I slacked a bit for the ring dips. Used a band for the last few reps… and there were actually quite a few reps before that where I didn’t lock out my elbows but still counted the reps :P Even so I was stuck at ring dips for at least 5-6min?!!
