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. My max PJ is 145- I had lots of trouble with this today. Not sure what my problem
