Decided to sleep in today cos slept late + couldn’t sleep well last night. Went for the evening class instead! It was quite a dreary Monday at work. Felt kinda ‘sian’ the whole afternoon~~ (morning was ok cos there was a meeting on some exciting project and I managed to grab some free food from another one of PA’s events hahah).

The evening class MADE MY DAY though!! :D :D COS PR SNATCH FINALLYYYY. FINALLY CAN SNATCH MY BODY WEIGHT! :D

Strength/skill

5 x 5 back squat [57.7kg to 80.8kg]

Squat snatch –
4 x 2 [37.7kg, 2x 42.7kg, 46.8kg]
2 x 1 [51.8kg, 55.8kg]

Supposed to do 4 x 2 snatch high pulls but Shawn (who was coaching this evening) told me to try going heavier for the squat snatch and made me do 60.8kg — which I managed haha. Even at that weight it was a PR already!! Then he was like “just try for 1 RM, no need to do the high pulls” HAHA. Then he proceeded to add another 1.25kg on each side of my bar – 63.3kg now.

AND YAYYY I MADE IT!!! Managed to stand it up before my arm gave way LOL. Cos I think my left arm hyper-extended a bit so it was a teeny bit uncomfortable at that weight ><

WOD

3 rounds –
Run 2 laps (~300m)
15 power C&J [105# or 115#?]
75 DUs

I swear the C&J rx was 105#! So I did it for the first round… and when I finished the 5th rep of my 2nd round, Shawn came over to ask where are my 2.5kg clamps – he said it was 115#! Looked over and saw that Yzanne added the clamps so ok… I let him add the clamps to 115# cos maybe I really saw wrongly. So did the rest of the wod at 115# hahaha.

But after the wod, I went to the board to check again…. and it was 105# leh hahaha. It was just slightly illegible handwriting :P Oh well, better to do heavier than lighter eh? ^^”

From last night, already felt like I needed to crossfit this morning. It was quite a sucky night and I just needed somewhere to vent, something to do. If I had my own cf gym, I would totally have went to workout already haha.

UGH.

It was not a bad workout today. Quite manageable. Nothing to intense (though I might have liked something more intense for my mood LOL).

Strength/skill

7 x 2 front squats [60.4kg to 78.5kg, 83.5kg – 1 rep]

8 x 1 squat C&J [46.8kg to 2x 69.9kg]
5 x 3 clean high pull from ground [2x 55.8kg, 3x 60.8kg]

Quite happy that I managed to do that (almost) 70kg C&J :) Used push jerks today cos it’s been quite a while since I did heavy split jerks. Jerks were quite ugly cos for both reps I couldn’t lock out fast enough and ended up in a bit of a strict press for the last bit haha. Still, made it! C&J PR :)

WOD

3 rounds –
Run 1 lap (~200m)
16 deadlift [(155#)]
60 DUs

Saw DUs and got quite sian already. Tripped on DUs A LOT for the first round. Only started to get it better in 2nd and 3rd. Overall an ok wod~

Strength/skill

Front squats –
3 x 5 [57.7kg to 66.8kg]
3 x 1 [71.8kg to 80.8kg] – yayyy!

Squat clean –
4 x 3 [42.7kg, 46.8kg, 51.8kg]
3 x 3 [55.8kg, 60.8kg, 64.9kg]

Finally doing some cleans again! Happy that I managed to hit 64.9kg (~145#) for my last 3 rep set!! :D Don’t think I’ve ever gone so heavy. A bit of a struggle at the last rep but yay still managed to stand it up!

5 x 5 clean high pull from ground [55.8kg]

Yeahhh my high pull weight is lower than my clean weight LOL. Cos I realised when I do cleans I may not really pull it very high, but instead focus more on the “going under”. Perhaps if I learnt to pull higher I will find it easier to clean… and clean more?? (then again I’m limited by my front squats lol).

WOD

16:00 EMOM (rotate among the 4 movements) –
10 KB front rack lunges (16kg; 1 KB on each hand) [12kg]
10 deficit push-ups [hands on 45# plates]
10 DB box step-ups [(15kg on each hand, 60″ box)]
0:50 plank hold

Step-ups were the hardest for me. And the KB lunges were just awkward cos I still don’t really know how to do KB cleans lol. Any heavier, I may not have been able to clean it up properly cos no technique haha.

Strength day.

Warm-up

5 x 10 wall balls [6kg]

15:00 EMOM back squats –
5:00 5 reps [64.9kg]

7 x 3

Strict press [28.6kg to 2x 37.7kg] – missed last rep on 2nd last set though :P
Bench press [37.7kg to 46.8kg]

On my 6th set of bench, I did 46.8kg, but last rep was assisted by coach. When I did the last set, I only managed 2 before racking the bar back. Then coach said “got one more rep” lol so I went back to do it. After I finished, I noticed that there was an additional 1.25kg on each side?! HAHA. Must be she added when I wasn’t looking and idk if she added on my last set, or last rep :P I’m guessing it was added at the start of the last set that’s why I could not even do one rep unassisted?! Hahaha :P

Woke up to flashes of lightning and thunder this morning. But I really wanted to go today cos I get to practise TTB during the wod and squat cleans after (cos smolov rest day haha).

Quite tiring while doing the wod, but recovered quite fast? Again did it at some slow and steady pace hahaha. Quite happy with my TTB cos I managed to string quite a few! :) There was one round I managed to string all 9 yay! But still needa get more consistent at it.

Did a bit of squat cleans after class today cos practise a bit for AFT. Managed to hit 70kg squat clean – new PR (70.2kg to be exact to my usual 1 dp hahaha)! Not very perfect cos my back started to round a bit as I was getting up from the squat position >< But at least I got it up! Shall aim for 75kg on the actual day?? In the meantime I should still practise a bit more to get the form nicer :P hahahaha.
