It’s no secret that I like EMOTM WODs.
EMOTM for 30 minutes
— 1 dead-lift @ 75% of 1RM (275#)
— 2 negative HSPUs (3″)
— 3 chest to bar pull-ups
— 4 toes to bar
My goal was to complete all rounds unbroken. No surprise there, right?
First, dead-lifts felt heavy, but I had no missed lifts. Two hundred seventy-five pounds is almost twice my body weight. I dead-lifted 8,250#. That’s 8.25 tons. Be impressed.
My wrist is almost completely healed, and HSPUs went swimmingly today. No missed attempts.
What, chest to bar pull-ups just a day after completing dead-hang pull-ups? Why the hell not? Again, no missed attempts.
I immediately transitioned from pull-ups to toes to bar, and this is the first time I recall doing so as part of a WOD. It certainly took some getting used to. I did lose focus on the 21st round and did not immediately transition to toes to bar. I’m not perfect, folks. Not yet. All chest to bar pull-ups were done unbroken, as were toes to bar.
The following is round number and time:
I started off slowly and ended blazingly fast. I wasn’t sure if I was going to be able to complete a round in 25 seconds or less, but when I finally did by the 29th round I set a goal for my last round to be my fastest. And it was.
Total time = 14:08
