Not sure why it’s cleans day again, but not complaining! :P

Strength/skill

5 x 4 push press [35kg to 49.1kg]
5 x 4 push jerk [49.1kg to 58.1kg]

5 x 3 power clean [44.1kg to 58.1kg]
4 x 3 clean high pull from ground [58.1kg]

WOD

10 rounds –
4 C2B
8 DB snatches (4L,4R) [(22.5kg)]
10 wall balls

I liked the fact that we didn’t have to do alternating hand for the DB snatches. I can do it faster with multiple reps on the same hand because, momentum hahaha. I needa figure out how to string my C2Bs :/ Always losing the momentum once I come down. C2Bs actually felt ok today cos I could get my chest to touch the bar with less effort than usual! :)

Finished slightly after 8am today but quite happy managed to finish all 10 rounds!

Strength/skill

5 x 3
Push press [37.7kg to 51.8kg]
Push jerks [46.8kg to 60.8kg]
Power clean [46.8kg to 55.8kg]
Clean high pull from ground [3x 55.8kg, 2x 60.8kg]

Since the rep scheme is the same for all the movements today, just lumped them altogether in the recording haha.

WOD

10 to 1 power cleans [(105#)]
30 DUs after each round

Thought I did not bad cos managed to string DUs yay! Anny still trying to let her collarbone wound heal so she did power snatches at 95# and finished slightly earlier than me! I thought it was quite fast since snatches should be harder than cleans, but yet we finished almost together :O

Went for 6.30pm class today cos it was raining sooo heavily when I woke up. Not sure if it actually got lighter/stopped by 6.20am (the time I usually leave the house) cos I went back to sleep :P

Idk why but my lower back was achy today. Felt it as I was doing the front squats! And there were sooo many squats today T_T

Strength/skill

5 x 4 front squats [51.3kg, 60.4kg, 3x 65.4kg]

6 sets – 3 squat clean + 1 jerk [42.7kg, 46.8kg, 2x 51.8kg, 2x 55.8kg]
4 x 3 clean high pull [55.8kg, 3x 60.8kg]

Yeppp my clean high pulls are lousyyy. Idk how I can clean so heavy relative to my high pulls lol. Must be not using the right technique ^^”

WOD

5 rounds –
5 squat cleans (95#) [coach made us do 105#]
10-cal bike
30 DUs

The reps for DUs are actually manageable. I think that’s like the most I can string comfortably hahahah. So the wod was actually ok despite the DUs! :D

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~

Every time I’ve rested for a day and go back to cf the next, it feels so long since I worked out lol.

Strength/skill

3 x 3 split jerks [44.1kg, 53.1kg, 58.1kg]
3 x 3 power clean [53.1kg, 58.1kg, 62.2kg]
3 x 3 clean high pull from ground [53.1kg, 2x 58.1kg]

My last set of power cleans were quite ugly though haha. And the last rep was almost going into a squat alr!

WOD

“Fran”
21-15-9
Pull-ups
Thrusters [(65#)]

Finished in 6:30. I think pull-ups slowed me down! :(

After class

5 x 10 med ball GHDs [6kg]
Snatch practice

Tried to go for 1RM for the snatches, but max was 53.1kg. Tried to snatch 55.6kg (added 1.25kg per side) but couldn’t lock out fully when the bar was overhead! Right elbow was not locked then I sorta lost my balance and couldn’t stand it up >< oh well!

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.

Partnering Whitney for workouts is really quite diff from my usual “style” cos she always goes heavier than I plan to LOL. And I don’t really wanna keep changing/taking out weights too so I’ll just go along :P Then I realise I can do it too, except that I’m really more shag than I usually would be hahaha. (Oops, not pushing hard enough usually!)

Strength/skill

5 sets –
2 power clean + 2 push jerk [46.8kg to 2x 58.3kg]

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

6 x 4 front squat [60.4kg to 69.4kg]

WOD

100 wall balls [(6kg)]
75 DUs
50 GHD
25 power snatch [(95#)]

Quite liked this wod though there were DUs lol. Idk why I can’t really skip well with my usual hub rope anymore??? Keep tripping :( Is it that I got lousier at DUs or are the ropes just the wrong length for me now :P
