I had no intention of resting yesterday, as I knew I’d need to give today’s metcon a test drive. I’m glad I did, as there would’ve been mutiny if I had athletes complete as originally programmed.
— 5 Sotts presses (weight TBD)
— 10 barbell weighted air squats
— 10 ring rows
I settled on 35# for sotts presses — and the weight at times felt like 135#. True story.
I completed sotts presses and weighted air squats unbroken, as well as first 5 rounds of strict ring rows. I completed 6th round in reps of 8 & 2 and 7th round in reps of 7 & 3.
Uhm, yeah, so far today sotts presses and ring rows have presented HUGE challenges for CFSers. That means I have to program both activities more frequently.
I completed 7 rounds + 15 reps.
5 @75%, 3 @ 85, & 1 @ 95%
Push-jerks went well today. Last rep @ 140# felt light. Good.
— 5 parallette pass throughs
— 5 forward lunges, 40# dumbbells
— 5 dead-hang pull-ups
I may program a similar workout in the future. No, this isn’t what we’ll be doing tomorrow.
My goal was to complete all rounds unbroken. As there were only 5 reps, you’d think this wouldn’t be a challenge. It was. Lunging with 80# (more than half of my body weight) was miserable. Ms. E. Rable. I wonder if that drag queen name is already taken…
I reviewed recording, and my form (like Melinda’s) was impeccable. Ms. Ima. Pecable.
To ensure that all pull-ups were indeed dead-hang, I paused one-thousand-one between reps.
Oh, yeah — I completed all rounds unbroken.
Time = 17:04.
