Warm Up- Just one round of the usual.
Strength: Deadlifts on a platform (I think that’s what it’s called? It was a 6 inch box)
Warm up: 1×5 @ 53
This felt really weird. Because I was reaching 6 inches further to get my hands on the bar I had to adjust several times before my knees went where they were supposed to and my shoulders weren’t hunching reaching for the bar.
4×5 @ 103
The 103 was HEAVY for me. The last two sets I did 2 reps, small break and reset before doing the last 3. By the last rep of each set I was completely seeing stars. Amazing what a big difference that 6 inches made.
1 min max reps push press
1 min max reps dead lift
1 min max reps OHS
:30 rest between 1 minute sets
Score: 124 with 33 on PP, 75 on DL and 33 on OHS
This was brutal. I almost did 53 on PP and by the end I was really glad I didn’t. My arms were fatigued to the extreme on the OHS and it made balancing difficult during the squat.
I also learned that, if I don’t really pay attention to my hand position on OHS I have a tendency to go WAY too wide, especially on my left side.
Perfect well-rested Monday WOD.
