  2. The best part of that video was James' incredible form/technique/efficiency and balance on the jerks. I need to take footage of myself next time.

  4. Jerk tech is perfect. That's what killed me. Very inefficient movement for me. His rythm was super consistent. IMPRESSIVE!!!!

  6. Took an extra day off yesterday.

    30:09... It is what it is.

    All FS steady & unbroken, double unders from 60-100 broken up. Tried to push for a good finish, mindset was just to slay 225# goats. Rests in between uneven.

  7. Great work James!

    Tried warming up for Monday's wod today and wasn't feeling it. Still sore and low energy from comp this weekend. Some days you just need to call it quits.

    Pumped to hit this wod tomorrow!

    Went unbroken on all front squats, and unbroken du's until I got to 80 haha then the lashing began. Great day though. Specially after the testicle kick of yesterday's WOD.

  14. This was a "just get it done" workout for me. Very happy that I'm just able to do it rx'd.

    33:30

    Still can only do my DU's in sets of about 5 reps to avoid headaches.

    ReplyDelete
  15. 16.38 @ 185 I scaled down i reall felt like 225 was not a good weight for me today after yesterday, just felt extremely weak and normally 225 feels quite decent.

    ReplyDelete
  16. 27:59 FS unbroken
    Happy but not satisfied. This was a good WOD to focus on my DU technique, which actually got better as the rounds went on. Legs feel great

  17. 24:20
    I did the first 10 with 155 (YEAH!)
    Reduced to 145 for rest of the rounds. Couldn't Clean the 155 after the first round. Did all of my FS unbroken :)
    Another day where I may not have been able to do RX, but it felt good. I am getting stronger! :)

  18. Forgot to post yesterday so...
    Snatch ninja- 9, 8, 6 ripped
    Back squat 405
    Wod did first few rounds with 205 thought I was going slow so I scaled. But I think 185 was too much scaling because I smoked through it after..

  24. 27:29 Rx. This was my first PM WOD in what seems like a year.

    Wanted sub-25 but my grip was absolutely smoked on DU. I am regretting the slightly heavier cable on my Rx rope after that one! All FS unbroken and I squat cleaned the first rep every set, hope that counts.

    Also, I need an ice bath!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I squat cleaned rep 1 also. COUNT IT!!! Lol

  27. 18:24 - took the bar from a rack - didn't Clean due to strained muscle in the back of my neck.

  28. 1. Did the WOD at CF Rife again.

    AMRAP 7
    7 DL @ 315#
    10 yd sprint
    14 Pistols
    21 DUs
    10 yd sprint back

    4 rnds exactly Rx. Good WOD. DLs were the deal breaker.

    Pretty smoked after that and tons of cleans yesterday so I did the Comp WOD afterwards modified to off the rack and kind of NFT. Just worked on good form and depth.

  29. Happy I rx'd that. Hadn't cleaned heavy since back injury, so wasn't sure I could handle 225. Glad to finish, but MOTHEREFFER that was hard!
