So I got to the box this morning and the lights in the entry way weren’t turned on. I was the first member there, but Coach’s car was out front.
So I walked in and turned on the lights… and saw this creepy grim reaper like mannequin sitting in the lobby chair. Ok weird, but whatever. It’s 5:45 in the morning and I’m still mostly asleep, so I stumble through the lobby to enter the box.
Right as I go to push the door open I hear, “damn it Nicole, you totally aren’t any fun.”
Yeah, the creepy mannequin was COACH. I’m actually really thankful I was half asleep because had I not been he probably would have scared me so bad that I peed my pants. He got a few people after that, and it was hilarious.
Between the costumes and the extra fun talk because of them (“Horny” dude was totally the best), this morning’s class was ah-mazing.
Warm Up: As always, the usual stuff. Today my hammies and inner thighs are sooooore. Great ride last night = sore legs today.
SWOD: Push Press 5×3
1×10@ 33 warm up
I was super excited to push press today, especially for a set of 3. My last recorded PR is 83 lbs and it’s from a long ass time ago, so I wanted to get some weight on the bar and see what I could get overhead.
Obviously, it went well. I was super strong through every set, and the 83 just seemed to fly overhead.
At 93 the first rep was perfect, the second ugly and the last I couldn’t get up. I even re racked and shook out my arms and tried again, and failed. I think psychologically I was so excited that I just bonked on the last rep.
Oh well. I’m still SO happy to have that weight go up. 100 lbs I’m coming for ya!
8 minute AMRAP
1 power clean
5 push ups
2 power cleans
5 push ups
3 power cleans
5 push ups
And so on…
Score: Got completely thru the round of 8 power cleans and 5 push ups with 3 seconds to spare @ 63 lbs
So, I should have used more weight on this one. The last power clean workout I used 53 and said it was too light, so I thought I was being smart by increasing by 10 lbs. Not enough. I easily could have done 10 more.
Otherwise, this was SUPER fun. The un-scaled version of the WOD was HSPUs instead of push ups, and man I am impressed by those people. The thought of even kicking up onto the wall scares me so bad I feel like I might pee a little.
