I think I am going to do this one again, and do it as rx’……………the met con I mean.
I warmed up with some of my Bergnener (lot of snatching tomorrow, need to practise drills)
For strength I worked on shoulder press.
The weight stayed the same as last time 27.5kg. I found it a massive struggle and felt I want to have a few more confident sets at this weight. Next time I will creep up to 30!
After warm ups sets of just the bar and 2 sets adding some weight till reaching 27.5.
Working sets were the usual…..
2×5 and 1×5+
This was still a challenge but felt more sturdy.
I gotta say I wasn’t looking forward to this one but it actually wasn’t as bad as I had made it out to be in my head.
It was 5 minute AMRAP Squat Clean and Jerk (rx 50kg W 75Kg M)
I kept the weight light…40Kg and achieved 16 reps.
The rules of this open were as follows:
Must touch floor each time,
Thrusters are accepted,
Full lock out over head,
Knee below hip in the squat clean.
Each move scores a point each…..so that makes my total 32! Whoop
I think in hindsight I could have hit this rx.
There is only one way to find out!!!!
