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

Warm-up

60 HSPUs + plank hold

While one partner does the HSPUs, the other plank hold. Can keep swapping till each partner hits 50 reps. Yep, did an extra 10 cos it was initially 75 HSPUs but by the time she reduced the number to 50, I already did 60 ^^”

Shoulders were so fried after this and the EMOM snatches (below) felt heavy lol.

Strength/skill

7 x 5 front squats [4x 60.4kg, 3x 65.4kg]
10:00 EMOM 1 power snatch + 1 squat snatch [37.7kg to 51.8kg]

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? ^^”

Warm-up

4:00 AMRAP –
3 inch-worm
10 mountain climbers

WOD

2 rounds:

10:00 alternate EMOM –
3 power snatch [(95#)]
5 burpees

10:00 alternate EMOM –
3 squat snatch
30 DUs

*For snatches, 1st round start from hang, 2nd round start from ground.

It was 20 DUs at first so did that for the first 2 sets, then I guess cos we seemed to be resting too much, coach Xin changed it to 30 DUs. The last 4 min (in 2nd round) became an AMRAP too. So it was 4:00 AMRAP of full squat snatches and DUs. I only did 2.5 rounds – 6 snatches, 90 DUs. I kept tripping on the DUs in that 4min! :P

CF log 04/08/17 (Fri) + happy friday!

Strength/skill

5 x 5 front squats [55.8kg, 60.8kg, 3x 64.9kg]

Power snatch –
3 x 2 [37.7kg, 42.7kg, 46.8kg]
3 x 1 [51.8kg]

4 x 3 snatch high pull from ground [3x 55.8kg, 60.8kg]

WOD

3 rounds –
10 front squats (clean from ground) [(135#)]
20 C2B
50 DUs

The front squats were DAMN BAD. First round was manageable… struggling a bit already. Second round was really a push and I totally felt like I was pushing myself damn hard to complete 10 reps at a go. And the 3rd round I just gave up and did 5-5 hahaha. Front squats killed me T_T If not I’d think the rest is quite manageable…? Thankfully only 3 rounds.


Anyway, feeling very happy this Friday haha! Cos I’ve completed the minutes for my weekly big meeting yesterday, hence freeing up my Friday :D The meeting’s usually on Fridays and it’ll be a mad rush to get the minutes out on the day itself.

Plus!!! Finally had the one to one session with my boss to talk about my current work. I’m quite happy that I managed to air all my grievances LOL. The whole “feedback” session was really just me complaining in a nicer manner :P He sorta explained why some things are the way they are too… but I just took them all with a pinch of salt cos I still feel like he’s not 100% trustworthy lol.

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.

Yayyy birthday!!! I wanna tell myself that I don’t make birthdays such a big deal, but in actual fact, I do. I just think remembering someone’s birthday kinda reflects the extent to which you care about someone. Cos… it seems like something so small, but if someone actually bothered to take note and remember.. then wish you on that day, it just feels nice and makes you feel important haha. So I must admit that I will get a bit disappointed if people whom I thought cared didn’t wish me… But I’m happy to say that this year, the people that mattered remembered so yay :) <3

I kept it low-key at wod today though. Didn’t say anything about it HAHA.
