Warm Up- The usual + t swings and scorpions
SWOD: Push Press 5×5
1×5 @ 33 Warm Up
1×5 @ 53
1×5 @ 68
The muscles in my chest and shoulders are completely spent today. It’s possible I could have done another 5 lbs, but it would have made the WOD even more difficult than it already was, so I’m glad I kept it lighter.
7 DB Squat Cleans
Time: 7:43 with 20 lb dumbells (40 lbs total)
I loathe DB Squat Cleans. For some reason the movement is just SO hard for me… which is really odd since the Clean in general is my favorite movement. But when I do these my body doesn’t want to do it as a smooth motion so I end up cleaning and then squatting and having my HR go so high that vomit is inevitable.
I was going to be a meow meow and go lighter on the weights, but super awesome girl coach was coaching this morning and she’s a grade A badass. She suggested the 20s, so I did them. And yes, I complained the entire time.
But I LOVE my 6 a.m. class. I was the last to finish by at least a minute, probably more like two, and they all stood there cheering for me. It’s amazing how, even though it is truly an individual sport, it sometimes feels like teamwork.
