My lifts are getting better with a little technique work. Still not putting it all back together but it’s coming My first lift in the video I pulled too early and the bar traveled out in front of me. The second lift I was more patient but may have tucked my chin :(. #somuchtoremember #slowissmoothsmoothisfast #crossfitoly

Taking a week off from lifting made it hard to come back today.  It’s as if I never picked up a barbell. I’m really trying to stay on my heels and finish my pull.  I’m not sure why I started pulling with my quads but I think it must be because of my back injury last year.  Sounds good, now to fix it with repetition, oh and the whole looking down thing, yeah gotta work on that too.  Good lifting sesh today.  The jerk felt a lot heavier than it should have.

On Monday I just couldn’t get all of this done. My butt, shoulder and hamstring are bothering me too so that didn’t help. I need to warm up more. That will start today! Since my shoulder was bothering me every snatch hurt and I decided to shoulder press instead of jerk. There was no way I would be able to lower 135lbs without hurting myself without jerk blocks. Didn’t do the Wall Ball/ GHD/ DU but did do the EMOM and got UB CTB for all sets.

The AM session was fun: Every 5 min get off the bike and work on handstand walks. I found that if I pointed my toes I was able to go farther. 16ft UB was a major PR for me.

The Lifting Session:
I saw the low weigh back squats and thought “I must be de-loading”. HaHa! The tempo was a mutha!

EMOM: Very fun. I love built in rest: I was able to get 3 UB MU! PR again! Yay me!

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
