One out of three ain’t bad.


I worked out with the lunchtime athletes today. I wasn’t sure how things were going to feel given recent shoulder injury. Fortunately, I experienced no pain. None. Nada. Nunca.

A: Press (10 minutes to establish 1RM; rest 3 minutes)
I warmed up and then did singles at 115, 125, 130, & 135# . I attempted 142# the allotted 3 times. As I didn’t de-load last week and as I’ve been nursing sore shoulder I was happy to successfully press 135, my until very recently 1RM.
B: Push Press (10 minutes to establish 1RM; rest 3 minutes)
I completed singles at 135, 145, 155, 160, & 167#. I took me 2 attempts to successfully push press 167#, but I did it. A new PR. Finally!
C: Power Jerk (10 minutes to establish 1RM)
I completed singles at 145, 155, & 160, but failed all 3 attempts at 167#. Dammit. I’m just not pulling myself under the bar deep or fast enough. Dammit, dammit.
D: Metcon (AMRAP – Reps)
Burpee + deadliest (160#) + forward facing bar hop + 11 unbroken double unders + 5 11 lateral bar hops

Yeah, so I messed up first round of dus. I also completed 11 instead of required 5 lateral bar hops for the first 2 rounds. I thought, “I could not complete lateral bar hops for the next — oh, shit, I’d have to do math. I’ll just finish all rounds with 11 lateral bar hops.” And that’s what I did.
I had initially mistakenly recorded my rounds as 10, but then remembered that I hadn’t moved a chip after competing the 11th round so that I could quickly complete 1 burpee, deadlift, and forward facing bar hop.
Score = 11 rounds + 3 reps
