Evening class today! Cos ok, I admit, I was lazy to go in the morning lol. I reached home past 10pm last night.. and after a big dinner I just wanted to sleep in #piglife hahaha.

Quite shag lol.

I think I finished quite fast? :P Prolly about half an hour. Didn’t really check my timing but I had 10min to spare before class ended haha. The movements in this wod were quite ok for me except cal bike! The bike was the worst cos it can get quite tiring and my legs seem to fatigue quite fast? :P

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!

In pairs,
100 jerks [(105#)] – other partner plank hold
100 front squats – other partner GHD hold
100 KB swings [(24kg)] – other partner deadlift hold
100 power cleans – other partner ring hold

Partnered Anny as usual hehe. Think we took about 45min to complete and we were one of the last D: But it’s ok, it was fun! :D

Played with Keith’s golden retriever (Rusty) after wod! And kept taking pics hahaha. Super big and cuteeee ^^ Very playful too; reminded me of my own dog :P

Really vv happy that I managed to go for wod today hehe ^^ And the 530 class at that! :D It was super empty. Only 4 of us including myself. Shawn was there too but he was doing other stuff at the other side of box cos he injured his back.

Strength/skill

0:00-5:00 EMOM 3 squat snatch [2x 37.7kg, 3x 42.7kg]
5:00-10:00 EMOM 5 squat clean & jerk [42.7kg]

I thought the snatches were ok hence the weight increase. I thought it would be manageable for the C&J…. but I was quite wrong LOL. Cos it’s squat, it took up a lot of time (and energy). I strung the first 5 C&Js, but the next few rounds were impossible haha. Ended up stringing mostly 2 or singles :P Well, at least still completed all 5 reps within each min!

WOD

7 rounds “Chief”
50 GHD
6 rounds “Chief”
50 GHD
5 rounds “Chief”
100 back extensions
*Chief = 3 power clean [(105#)], 6 push ups, 9 air squats

I’m guessing I took between 40-45min. Cos there was so little people, we each had our own GHD HAHA. I can’t really tell what was the hardest part for me this workout cos I think every element just contributed to it being quite tiring! Even the air squats… I was doing them very slowly; just felt I couldn’t go any faster and it was such a chore squatting so many times hahahah.

During the last 5 rounds of “Chief” I felt a bit faint and like puking actually. So I think I slowed down even more haha. It was a fun wod though! :D

“1775” (adapted)
45:00 AMRAP with a partner –
17 power cleans [(105#)]
75 air squats
*after each round: unload bar, walk to other side of box, reload bar

Whitney and I managed 12 rounds! It was pretty fun with all those cleans and we managed to more or less keep our pace! :D Did the cleans in sets of 3 and for air squats we didn’t break up our respective reps. One of us will unload the bar while the other person is squatting – save time LOL.

We thought we could finish at least 9 rounds; like 5min per round. But at our 9th round, we still had about 12min to go, so pushed the target to 12! Then at the 11th round we were running to the other side of the box with the plates and bar HAHA – just so we would have time to finish up our target number of rounds xD

Once I saw the wod, I knew it was gonna be a long day >< But tbh it was quite fun now that it’s over hahaha. Just that my body is really feeling so sore everywhere now. Getting old T_T

With a partner –
100-80-60-40-20-10 wall balls [(6kg)]
21-18-15-12-9-6 power snatch [(95#)]
*after each round: 10 pull-ups + 10 ring dips + 1 round farmers carry [(24kg each side)]

Ring dips and pull ups were supposed to be 5 MUs. But yknow…. still can’t do (bar/ring) MUs, so scaled to that. All reps shared including the pull ups, ring dips, farmers’ carry. The carry was damn shag lol. Anny and I finished the whole thing around 10.05am. I actually thought our pace was not too bad but as usual idk why everyone seemed to finished faster hahaha. I’d like to think is cos most of them were using lighter weights… :P

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

It was Francis’ farewell wod today (though I’ve never spoken to him, I know who he is lol). Apparently he’s going overseas to work.

WOD

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

10 rounds “Cindy”

Back squats to ‘Sally Up, Sally Down’ song [(95#)]

The blue letters make up his name hahaha. (Yup, like that also can :P)

It was actually not too bad overall…. though the back squats part got tough towards the end; cannot keep up with the song! But I’m quite happy I still managed to do all the reps :) My upper back/lats ached like crazy at the end.

Did Fran then Cindy. I think I finished Fran in 10-11min… and all the Cindys in at least 15min lol. Kinda took my time with them :P
