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

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

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!
