‘Twas a fun WOD!

I worked out after coaching the wonderful Boot Campers! I was, however, running somewhat on empty, as I didn’t have a very restful night of sleep. That’s unusual for me. It may have been the coffee that I drank at the de Leons. Yup, that was probably it. I’ll blame May Jay.

EMOTM f0r 10 minutes
1 press, 1 push press, & 1 push jerk (or split jerk)

Begin at 50 to 60% of press 1RM and add weight as the workout progresses — and form improves.

I began with 65#, 50% of 125#, and increased weight by 5# each minute. Uhm, and I completed more than 10 rounds. My last round was 120#, 95% of press 1RM.

And it was good. Yeah!

15-minute AMRAP
Cash in with fast 250m row
40 double unders
30-second 1-legged plank holds
10 sumo dead-lift high pulls (105/68)

Having witnessed folks complete the workout during the 6 and 7:15 am sessions, I kinda sorta knew what to expect. Kinda. Sorta.

My goal was to complete all rounds of reps unbroken. And that didn’t happen. Damn double unders.

I rowed 250m in 48.8, and was quite winded when I mistakenly attempted double unders. The first round was a big, sloppy mess. Gah! It took me for what seemed like forever to complete all 40 double unders. The 30-second plank hold presented little challenge, and I completed 10 unbroken SDHPs. I will state that 105 felt heavy.

Double unders significantly improved as the workout progressed, and I completed 4 of the rounds unbroken. That was a relief. I completed all 30-second 1-legged plank holds unbroken, as I should’ve been able to easily do. Uhm, but it wasn’t as easy as I thought it was going to be.

I was most pleased that I completed all rounds of 10 SDHPs unbroken. Yup, I did that.

Total = 7 rounds + 10 double unders.
