Usually I have Steve guiding me through the programming for the morning classes but today he had a lie in so instead of doing the Open. I had no mobile phone to connect to the internet to check the official WOD so knowing a few of the moves included I had to make someting up on the spot.
It weren’t too bad either.
We started with strength as per. I knew it had to be deadlifts as squats were monday and press was tuesday.
So we worked on our warm up sets with the bar and adding a bit of weight. Around 3 warm up sets of 5.
Then the working sets, 2×5. I have found this on past days frustrating that I can’t really up my weights but today still using the same weight as before it felt mildly harder!
I gotta say now the baby is getting bigger and moving around move strength is not my favourite part of the day. I can see myself steadily dropping the weight in future months!
Anyways on to the WOD….my made up WOD.
3 Rounds of
12 Power Cleans
15 Dumbell Thrusters
18 Pull Ups
I always find DB thrusters hard. I much prefer barbell thrusters…but hey you can’t always do what you like.
I split my Pull ups in to 8’s and 5’s using a blue band and the coupling it with a red band.
I nailed it in 14 minutes 40 seconds.
I am sure I am clawing back my pull ups strength Whoop Whoop!
