Late(r) night at the office, getting the August issue out. Missed all the class times at CFR, so I just went home and worked out.
A: Strict press
- 5-5-5-5-5 // 95# — For the 2nd and 3rd set, I actually went up to 100#, but that was forcing me to really arch my back, and I was having to push press that weight on the 5th rep, so I went back down to 95# for the remainder.
B: Push press
- 3-3-3-3-3 // 135# — Worked up to 135# for the last set of three, did the middle three sets at 115#. Left side doesn’t extend as quickly as the right side, so there are some imbalances for me to work on there…I’m sure being fatigued from the strict presses factored in, but still.
C: Split jerk
- 3-3-3-3-3 // 65# — I haven’t spent any time figuring out how to do a proper split jerk, so I just worked with some really light weight to get used to dropping under the bar and staying balanced. It’s hard :/
D: 5 minutes, AMRAP
Burpee pull ups
- 41 Rx — This was the scheduled metcon at CFR today, and it didn’t require any equipment other than gravity and a pull up rig, so why not? I was sucking wind towards the end—these were much harder than I anticipated—and I would have placed middle of the pack had I put up this number in a class today.
