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

Strength/skill

10-8-6-4-2 thrusters @ increasing weight
[37.7kg, 42.7kg, 46.8kg, 49.3kg, 51.8kg]

There was an rx for this which started at 105# (46.8kg) but obv I can’t start from that weight and still keep increasing lol. So scaled down to what I could do. Mayyybe I could have done 55kg (125#) for the 2 reps. Hm. Though I was a bit struggling for the 49kg 4 reps, the 51kg 2 reps was not too bad :P

WOD

1000m row
30 C&J [(85#)]
750m row
25 power snatch
500m row
20 thrusters

Quite shag but still more manageable than I thought it’d be! Guess cos the weight is not thaat heavy (since we do 95# and 105# quite often nowadays) haha.. Plus, no squats! xD

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? ^^”

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!

IT’S AUGUST. Where has all the time gone…

July was a really good month compared to June though :D

Starting the month with some cleans! Fav movement hehe.

Strength/skill

3 sets – 2 squat clean + 1 jerk [46.8kg, 51.8kg, 55.8kg]
3 sets – 1 squat clean + 1 jerk [60.8kg]

5 x 5 front squat [2x 60.4kg, 3x 65.4kg]

Somehow felt damn long since I last did front squats so the weight was kind of a struggle hahaha.

WOD

“Diane”
21-15-9
Deadlift [(155#)]
HSPU

Gave Anny bday present of Whittakers chocs today! :D

CF log 28/07/17 (Fri)

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

CF log 26/07/17 (Wed)

On one hand, I’m “yayy midweek!!” and on the other it’s like “omg only wednesday” haha. But either way, one day closer to Friday and the weekends!!! I’m still not in work mood after being out of office for so many days T_T

Strength/skill

0:00-5:00 EMOM 4 squat snatch [37.7kg]
5:00-10:00 EMOM 6 squat C&J [37.7kg]

I did 6 the first min of C&Js then 4 the next and 5 for the rest… so average only 5 each time lol. This felt so bad.

WOD

2 sets –
3 rounds Ben Burgeon beep test
35-cal bike
*beep test = 7 DB thrusters [(15kg)], 7 C2B, 7 burpee box jumps

This felt bad too.. It was C2B but I think I cheated and did some pull-ups in between >< There was sposed to be another 3 rounds of beep test after this but really no one could finish by 8am so those last 3 rounds were removed haha. S H A G.

Back to the wod then chiong to work routine D: Ugh work.

Those who didn’t go for class yesterday did that partner wod, while others who went (like myself) did something else:

Strength/skill

7:00 EMOM 3 power clean + 3 front squat + 3 push jerk [3x 37.7kg, 4x 42.7kg]

WOD

10 to 1 squat cleans [(105#)]
1 rope climb after each round

Borrowed one side of Whitney’s long socks for the climbs. Socks just don’t cut it, but it’s better than nothing. Still can feel the burn (and pain) through the sock, but at least no visible rope burns. I think most of us finished quite fast. Definitely a less shag and much shorter wod than yesterday! Had about at least 10min to spare after I was done :)

CF log 23/07/17 (Sun)

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
