I worked out after coaching the 8:30 athletes, and competed today’s programmed WOD.
5 @ 70, 80, & 90% of 1RM (235#)
I completed sets of 5 unbroken reps @ 165, 185, and 210#. Lifts felt and looked (yup, I recorded and reviewed) solid.
1, 2, 3…
Lateral bar hop/side
Toes to bar
Rest 2 minute2
Max time weighted plank hold (up to 4 minutes)
This was kinda fun. I set a goal to make it through round 10 with unbroken dead-lifts, i.e., no dropping the bar, and unbroken toes to bar. As I knew I’d be able to complete unbroken lateral bar hops, I didn’t set that as a goal. Sadly, I only made it through the round of 8 toes to bar unbroken. Dammit. For the round of 9 I completed 7 & 2 and for the round of 10 I completed 8 & 2. Dammit. I did, however, complete dead-lifts unbroken through round of 10. Yay!
Total = 11 rounds + 8 dead-lifts
I wore a 45# weight vest and placed a 25# plate on my back for a total of 70#, which is half of my body weight. I held the plank for 3:03. That. Was. Tough.
Today was quite a day at CrossFit Surmount, as Angelina, Ashley, Lorraine, and Michelle were all able to complete their first ever toes to bar! The programming is working, yo.
