Yup, I’ve been very busy, and was too tired to blog last night.
I completed yesterday’s programming, and power snatched a mere 105#. Yup, I’m still trying to protect my right wrist. Yup, I like beginning sentences with “yup” — and “uhm”.
EMOTM for 10 minutes
Odd-numbered minutes max reps hang power snatches @ 55 – 65% of power snatch 1RM
Even-numbered minutes max accumulated plank hold
I settled on 65# for PS, and completed 19 and 17 unbroken reps the first and second rounds, respectively. I completed the remaining 3 rounds in sets of 2, completing 10 & 4, 8 & 5, and 6 & 6 from third, fourth, and final rounds, respectively, for a total of 75 reps. I held the plank for 1 minute each round for a total of 5 minutes.
I didn’t complete strength today, and that’s okay. I may attempt later this week.
Negative pushups (45/25# plate)
I completed all rounds of pushups unbroken. I discovered that I always crossed my right hand over the left and my left hand under the right. Huh? Why?
I completed 8, 2, & 2 dead-hang pull-ups the round of 12; 4, 2, 2, 1, & 1 the round of 10; 3, 1, 1, 1, 1, & 1 the round of 8; 2, 1, 1, 1, & 1 the round of 6; 2, 1, & 1 the round of 4; and single reps the round of 2.
Time = 5:47
I recorded. Yup, the pull-ups were dead-hang.
50 reps for time of:
This is a new benchmark WOD, as was posted on the main site a few days ago. The hardest part of the workout was keeping track of rounds! I had a stack of 5 chips and a stack of 10 chips; thus I’d move a chip from the stack of 10 after moving all 5 chips from the stack of 5. Got it? Good. Going on.
So that I wouldn’t hurt my wrist, I would gently touch the wall with 1 foot when finishing handstand.
My biggest mistake was starting off too slow. I had set a goal to finish in 20 minutes, and had only completed 25 rounds when the clock read 11:30. I did pick up the pace, and missed my goal by a second. Dammit.
Time = 20:01
Pushups = 92
Dead-hang pull-ups = 42
Burpees, jumping jacks, sit-ups, and handstands = 50
