Wod was a little different today. Idk how to log it, but we played around with the tyres. Did some tyre whack thing. Apparently Josh Bridges posted a vid of him doing it on insta?

So basically put a 45# plate (two plates for guys) in the centre of the tyre, then use the long hammer to move it along the road. I was teamed with Anny and Yuren. Took turns to take 10 hits at the tyre (5L,5R) then 5 walking KB swings with 24kg KB (it started out with 10 swings then was reduced).

After about 50m, the weight inside the tyre was taken out; so we moved a lighter weight. Then for the last few metres (I think slightly less than 50m), the 45# plate was put back. Think we did a total of slightly more than 100m? More or less 2x the length of box hahah.

Wow, back for strength day after prolly at least a month?! Cos I always rest on strength day hahaha. I decided to go large part cos I WAS ON LEAVE :D :D :D

And….. we’re still doing the usual squats, still having some variation of deadlifts and presses.

Oh but one special thing is that we had Yuren’s birthday “wod” before the usual strength stuff! (And a matcha crepe cake to celebrate after class.)

For Yuren’s birthday, 24 reps of each movement shared with partner –
Yellow KB swings
U-ups
Ring dips (ughhhh haha)
Elevated push ups
Nine-count burpees

Then usual strength day stuff.

15:00 EMOM back squats –
5:00 5 reps [60.8kg]
5:00 3 reps [69.4kg]
5:00 1 rep [3x 78.5kg, 2x 82.5kg]

My right knee hurt (maybe cos I pulled it or something??) after the 2nd/3rd minute -.- But I managed to tahan till end of the first 5 min before getting my knee sleeve lol. Thankfully it helped and I just didn’t really push myself too much anymore for the remaining sets :P Otherwise I think I could have at least gone heavier for the 1 rep sets haha.

15:00 EMOM deadlift, 3-sec pause at shin and knee position [55.8kg]

New variation of deadlifts. Quite back-breaking despite the not too heavy weight…

7 x 3
BTN strict press [24.1kg to 31.6kg]
Bench press [40kg to 44.1kg, 46.6kg assisted]

Warm-up

10-1 HSPU, shuttle run after each set

Strength/skill

10-8-6-4-2 snatches (rx in #: 80-95-105-135-145) – dno why the increments so weird lol
[35kg, 42.5kg, 46.6kg, 49.1kg, 51.5kg]

I just like to count my weights in kg la haha. But basically worked up from ~80# to 115# for the last 2 reps. Matched the rx till completed set of 6. Tried my best to string all the sets but it got hard for 8 and 6 cos no chalk T_T and I missed the last rep for the set of 4 (which I made up for)  :/ In the end only strung for 10 and 2 lol.

Oh ya, was doing power snatch for 10-8-6, then squat snatch for 4-2.

WOD

3 rounds –
Run 2 rounds (~400m)
21 KB swings [(24kg)]
12 pull-ups

Took less than 20min to finish this. I actually did the runs damn slowly :P

No partner wod this week! Another solo wod today haha, but it was more interesting than yesterday’s I felt!

10 to 1 –
Thrusters [(105#)]
Ring dips
KB swings [(24kg)]

Think most people took around half an hour… I didn’t think we would finish so fast haha! So after we were done, we did:

100 back extensions with ball [(6kg)]

Hamstrings and back were so fried from this ><

Went to have toast box with Anny after! :D Finally got to eat my soft french PB set again! And it was a nice chit-chat session hehe ^^

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

Yayy fun wod today! And not too tiring :D

Partner WOD

100 GHD + lock-out hold [(85#)]
100 burpees + deadlift hold [(155#)]
100 wall balls + front rack hold [(105#)]
100 KB swings + back squat hold [(105#)]

So basically while one person is working on the 100 reps thing, the other person does the hold, then swap till 100 reps are completed. 100 reps are shared! I think everyone finished with at least 15min to spare lol.

Didn’t sleep well last night so I actually felt rly sleepy and tired when I woke up this morning. It felt as though I went for cf yesterday and wanted another rest day, but fact is I didn’t go lol. On the contrary, I was actually quite sedentary and ate a lot?! D:

Dragged myself to go anyway. Aiming for 6x a week unless it’s a tyre flips week (then 5x lol).

Strength/skill

5 x 2 front squat [60.4kg to 78.5kg]
5 x 2 squat snatch [37.7kg to 51.8kg, 55.8kg 1 rep]

So close to getting 2 TnG squat snatches at 55.8kg (~125#)!! Caught the first rep pretty nicely, then the second rep I guess I didn’t tighten/lock my shoulders quick enough so swung too much and the bar flew back so had to let go ahhh :P But still pretty happy with my attempt! 125# is starting to get comfortable?

WOD

4 rounds –
15-cal bike
18 wall balls
15 KB swings [(24kg)]
12 burpees

It looked ok. But I started to get tired already after the first round lol. Think it’s very cardio… so quite a tiring wod!

CF log 23/05/17 (Tue)

Strength/skill

3 x 3 power snatch [2x 42.7kg, 46.8kg]
3 x 3 snatch high pull from ground [51.8kg, 2x 55.8kg]
3 x 3 OHS [37.7kg, 46.8kg, 55.8kg]

WOD

“Grace” (30 C&J) [(95#)]
15:00 EMOM (one movement per min) –
2 ring MU [3 jumping ring MU!]
4 strict HSPU
8 KB swings [24kg]

Finished “Grace” in 3:31! :D The last recorded timing I have is 4:36… so 1 min improvement yay! It was singles all the way~

First time doing jumping ring MUs in a wod :D Quite fun hehe. Was sposed to be 4 reps if you do jumping, but coach told me to do 2 haha. I managed 3 per round (except 1) though! :)

Strict HSPUs were quite bad cos I still can’t go low enough T_T Still don’t have the strength to do strict HSPUs :P

Just 2 diff EMOMs today.

20:00 alternate EMOM –
7/10-cal row
15 wall ball [6kg]

Supposed to be 7-cal row for girls but I did 10 all the way except for one round. I thought it was only a 10:00 EMOM! Had at least 20-sec rest after each exercise so it was not bad. Shag, but not as bad as the next one!

20:00 alternate EMOM –
15 KB swings [20kg]
15 GHD

Managed 15 KB swings for 7-8 rounds, did 10 for the rest. Dropped to 10 GHDs after the first 2-3 rounds lol. It was really close to impossible for me to maintain 15 reps for both exercises… so give and take hahaha.

Half way through coach was asking if 15 each was manageable and I told her I was already dropping to 10 of each HAHA (though I did manage to go back to 15 for my KB swings later). She went to ask David, who also scaled down a little too (and he did this EMOM first!). So she actually dropped the reps for the evening class hahah. Not sure if both dropped to 10 or just one of the movements :P

Partner Anny is finally back again yay! :D And it was a partner wod today :)

Shared reps with partner –
50 box jumps
50 C2B
50 KB swings [(24kg)]
50 front squats [(105#)]
50 TTB
50 push jerks
50 deadlifts
50 wall balls
50 power cleans
100 DUs (rx: 50 triple-unders! :O)
50 thrusters

Omg there were so many movements I’m not sure if I really got everything down?? ^^” It was 30 reps of everything initially, but cos we did the wod too fast, coach changed it to 50 reps each! Anny and I were already at the jerks when she announced that… but she said we had to make up the 50 reps for the previous movements too so we went back to them after finishing our 50 thrusters! Managed to finish everything just in time before the next class :D It was quite fun for me!
