A. This was hard. The HH and mid thigh were pretty easy but my form definitely loosened by the knee. I finished at 99# (The third lift @45k I had to chase forward, UGLY)
B. Hard as shit. Really have to focus on my pull. I missed all the reps at 92%. Technically (in crossfit) I got the last lift, even though I had to chase it 20 feet forward. Enjoying these as I feel this is my weakness.
C1. 4/10 for all sets
C2. 3/20 for all sets (I just got bored with the pistols, could’ve done more

Well, I was a little confused about the tempo of this workout. But figured it out, kind of. Still not sure why the number 6 is written after RDL. In any case though I was glad to do some RDL as this is my weakness on the clean!

AM:  Bracketology WOD:
10 Min AMRAP:
Buy in: 50 kbs 35#
then AMRAP
5 CTB Pull Ups
10 Push Ups
15 Goblet Squats

5+13 Rx – I felt horrible during this workout. The movements were not difficult for me, I never had to break anything. I was just having a terrible time trying to breathe so it took me forever to transition between movements. I’ve been taking melatonin to help me sleep and it always jacks my heart rate and labors my breathing. I should know better but the sleep is so good.

Row 30 Sec 85%/ 30 Sec 50% X 11
AD 30 Sec 85%/ 30 Sec 50% X 11

I did the PM workout at home so I did AD for both because I love the air dyne so much. I really do. Just not for 300 FU or 10 Min Max Cal. Everything else is good.


Tuesday May 13th, 2013

A. Split Jerk, build to a heavy single – if you fail, you stop, no redo’s
B. Power Clean Cluster, 1.1 x 4 sets, 4-5 min – 1st set @ 155lb
C1. Hang Squat Clean off blocks from knee cap, 3 reps @ 145lb x 4 sets, 1:30 min
C2. Parallel Grip Chin-ups off Rings @ 21X1, 2-3 reps x 4 sets, 1:30 min
D1. HSPU to extra depth @ 20X0, 2-6 tough reps x 3 sets, 1:30 min
D2. Wide Grip Pronated Chin-ups @ 20X0, AMRAP x 3 sets, 1:30 min

Had a great day on the Split Jerk today. Finished at 190#, 19lbs more than my PR! I just kept hitting the lifts today. Finally missed at 195. Felt great.
B. Was another story – My cleans are way off and I’m not sure why. I’m pulling early and landing wide. I kept every set at 155 to work on technique.
C1. These were hard as crap for me. I need more of these. I had to do one at a time. I was not able to TNG. I was having a hard time transitioning from the launch to the high hang from the blocks. I feel like if I work at this position more from the blocks it will help tremendously with B.
C2. Ring Pull Ups, easy 4 reps
D1. Deficit HSPU – 6″ X 6 reps, 10″ X 3 reps, 10″ X 1 Rep
D2. WG Pull Ups – 6-7-7
