WOD 16th April Fitting in a sneaky one!

Full of beans I decided to pop down to the gym and join in with Colin’s morning class.

Strength was back squats……2×5 and 1×5+ I used my handy dandy ball beneath me to help remind me to reach back each time.

My weight hasn’t really gone up I keep teetering up and down as I have days when I feel tough and weak days. I am not pressurizing myself to keep hitting higher lifts!

The met con looked daunting! It had been a while since I had hit thrusters hard and the thought turned my tummy!

I was determined to try it at the rx’d weight of 30Kg.

I sub-ed the box jumps as usual with step ups.

So here is how it went….

Thruster                10 – 9 – 8 – 7 – 6 – 5 – 4 – 3 – 2 – 1

Step ups/Boxes     1 – 2 – 3 – 4 – 5 – 6 – 7 – 8 – 9 – 10

This was rx’d for women at 30 and men 40Kg.

This was a toughie but I actually enjoyed myself and felt really cuffed to get through the WOD.

It took me 7 minutes and after 55 thrusters I am looking forward to when Fran comes up next!!!!

Never thought I would say that!
