CrossFit Very, Very, Very Best Friend Forever (if you were wondering) workout, as I met with Michael at Cary LFF. It was at Michael’s insistence, and he bribed me with a CrossFit Charlotte shirt. How could I resist? Michael says he prefers working out with someone else, as he lacks the motivation to work out by himself. After completing today’s lifting, I can understand why.
Back Squat:
135 X 3
145 X 3
150 X 3
155 X 3 X 7 sets
As we were to do 10 sets of 3 reps, I honestly thought that I’d have to go with a lighter weight. 155 lb was doable, and I made sure to focus on form. There were a few times when I could’ve squatted a little lower, but at least my knees don’t turn in. You know who I’m talking about, Michael.
Clean & Jerk:
70 X 1
80 X 1
90 X 1 X 5 sets
Michael did provide vocal cue to ensure that I didn’t lift too soon.
Push Press
70 X 7
90 X 5 X 5 sets
I was exhausted by this time, and did struggle through the clean before the push press.
I’m considering focusing even more on strength in the coming months…

One thought on “CFVVVBFF

  1. Paul, is there an option where readers can comment using their name/URL to comment?
    I'd be much more likely to leave snarky comments all day if this option were available.
    Ashley and Shayne have it on their sites…
