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!
