WOD 13th April Sally does the Open

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!!!!
