WOD 25th April Squat for your eggs.

After a busy weekend in Cambridge visiting relatives I was well up for a sofa day.

I had a lie in Whoop no 7.30am class and then settled to watch rubbish movies while drifting in and out of sleep. Perfect.

Only come 5pm I had to peel myself off the sofa to get down to the gym for evening classes!

I had a few at 5.30 and then none at 6.30 and a few at 7.30.

Since I had been so lazy all day…and yep I had scoffed some chocolate eggs I thought I better join in with the crew.

I had decided for today to program a whole strength day. I had to stick to the squats as it was part of the main programming but as for the format I played around with that.

We still worked up with 3 warm up sets of 5 but our output was working toward working sets of 90%.

As we were working close to the mark we needed a full 3 minute min rest between sets and defiantly a spotter!

Thanks lads for the spot and encouragement!

Keeping with the strength theme next up was push jerks.

Warm up sets with the bar to make sure my technique was cool then 2 sets adding some weight before working on2x4 working sets at  90%.

Since the jerk has come up in WOD’s recently it made sense to practise some heavy jerks. Besides it always clicks more with heavy weight.

I finished strength by doing 2×4 push press. No need to warm up just needed to adjust the weight accordingly.

Thanks again lads for letting me join in with you at 5.30. It defiantly helps to have someone there to push you during a strength session.

What to do now….. I had an hour to kill between classes……………..

How about a go at Fran!

It’s been a while since I last did Fran. I loaded the bar with 25Kg  and used a green band for support. I can manage about 8 pull ups with a green band which is about right.

Because it’s been a while and because conditions have changed I just wanted to see what I could do.

I didn’t do as badly as I thought I would.

A lighter band I think next time…..I finished in 7minutes 13seconds.
