Bad Kitty!

I’ve been watching “Glee’ and finished the 1st season last night. I had forgotten how original, touching, and awesome the show was. Was, that is, until the 4th season. The 2nd season is particularly good. Grilled Cheesus! Chord Overstreet! 

Having coached the 6, 7, and 8:30 am sessions, i knew what to expect. I wasn’t disappointed. 

Metcon (Weight)

EMOTM for 12 minutes

Press + push press + power jerk
Work up to your heaviest set

I began at 70# and worked up to 125, just under 90% of 1RM. Presses, push press, and even (and perhaps even more so) power jerks felt very good today. No shoulder pain. Yay! The last press was tough, and I really had to fight for it. You try pressing almost 90% of your bodyweight overhead and let me know how easy it is to do so. 

Metcon (Weight)

EMOTM for 12 minutes

2 lunges/leg
Work up to the heaviest set

I began at 115 and worked up to 170. I mixed up front and reverse lunges, but always held barbell on back. This was tough, and I was swearing like a solider as the workout progressed. I attempted to ensure that my knees was over my ankle, and that I pushed off of toes (reverse) or heel (forward). 

Metcon (AMRAP – Reps)

5-min AMRAP
5 American KB swings
5 goblet squats

I chose a 53# KB. Gah! This was very tough. I placed my KB in 7303, as I didn’t want to distract others with my sweating and swearing. Lauren and Ashlee joined me, although my back was to them so I was unaware of them most of the time. Kelly-May set up her KB to my left. Little did I know that she was determining her pace by my pace. She’s as smart as I am good-looking. Almost. I completed 11 rounds at 7 reps, just 1 more than Kelly-May.
