Evening class today cos had an early morning meeting :( Which actually ruined my week cos of the work that got assigned then. SIGH. I really wish I was sick sometimes to escape these responsibilities ><

But anyway, as usual, crossfit makes everything better LOL. (ok maybe except on days when there are movements I can’t do/suck at – read: DUs. Hahahah jk)

Felt like a double wod today because we started with:

30 C&Js [(135#)]

I finished it in about 17:30? Could choose between power and squat cleans and I was doing power all the way.

Shared a bar with Yzanne. She did it in sets of 3, while I did it in sets of 2. She was linking her clean to jerks while I was breaking them up :P Strong siaaa. I think she was done before 12min… or around there lol.

WOD

30-cal row
30 box jumps
30 power snatch [(65#)]
30 TTB

Finished this faster than the 30 C&Js haha! Around 11:35.

Not very sure if I went up to 90+kg for the squats though I thought I did hit 205#?? But when I think back about how we added the weights, I can’t seem to get that number hm. Oh well, the weight is about there anyway hahaha.

WOD

6 front rack lunges [(95#)]
12 power C&J
18 GHD
20 lateral jumps over bar

Took about 20-23min to complete! I thought it was not bad a wod actually. Might even consider it fun? :P

Partner wod again! :D It was quite a short one today.

Shared reps with partner –
2 rounds –
50 jerks
50-cal row
50 ring dips

Finished this with about 20min to spare so Anny and I tried 1RM snatches. Happy that I’m getting consistent with 125# snatches! Time to get that 135# (~body weight) snatch!! I tried it before and missed. Tried it today again and still missed. Twice! But it’s ok, I’m getting there~ Can get under the bar, just needa hold it at the right position overhead/get the right position and stand it up! Just a little more….

Finally got that 125# snatch on vid too ^^

IMO, quite a torturous wod today though it looked like two simple EMOMs haha.

Ok, I did think I would die at the second one because 10 front squats in a minute!!! I’m not good a many-reps-front-squats (if that’s even a thing hahaha).

Warmed up with 2 rounds of 20 wall ball sit-ups and 20 partner throws (each).

WOD

20:00 alternate EMOM –
10 deadlift [3x 46.8kg. 7x 51.8kg]
5 hang power clean

3:00 rest – which passed so quickly!!

20:00 alternate EMOM –
10 front squats [46.8kg]
5 push jerks

First EMOM was tiring but manageable. Then when it got to the 2nd one… after 3 rounds of each movement, I reduced the reps of my front squats to 8. REALLY CANNOT TAHAN. I told myself ok I’ll push for 10 at the last round…. BUT CANNOT hahahah. At the 8th rep, my shoulders/upper body couldn’t hold the bar up anymore… so achy and shag(!!) esp after Murph yesterday D: But ok, still quite glad I managed 5 jerks each round. I think I pushed myself enough ><

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~

3 x 2 snatch grip deadlift [69.4kg, 2x 79.4kg]

Went for evening class today cos it was raining super heavily this morning and I wasn’t very keen on using an umbrella in that storm – cos it wouldn’t have helped anyway. And since I was free tonight, why not just go for the evening class! So I did :P Still got my wod in so, happy! Back to morning classes tmr!

Coach asked why I didn’t go in the morning, and I said rain. She just rolled her eyes at me LOL.

So I usually don’t write about warm-ups but thought it is worth a mention today cos I was able to do ~25 DUs on average for the DU-air squat tabata haha! In the mornings, I usually do less than 20 I think LOL oops. Somehow DUs felt so smooth. Actually, I felt pretty energised/pumped up in the evening class compared to mornings haha!

Strength/skill

10:00 alternate EMOM –
5 HSPU
12-cal row

WOD

1200m run
ME C&J [(95#)] – did 19
800m run
ME snatch [(85#)] – did 15
400m run
ME thrusters [(65#)] – did 28

All of us shared bars I guess cos it was quite crowded. I shared a bar with Belle so we did singles for C&J and snatches, and sets of 5 for thrusters. I think we could have done more if we each had our own bar! I was surprisingly not super shag after the wod… like I thought I would be more tired… Well, guess it’s the “evening class effect”~~ more energy and pumped up haha!
