Fitness Friday

May 3, 2013

This was a quiet week on the fitness front. Monday was a terrible day in our house with a baby who screamed his face off the entire day. Because of that I ended up missing the mommas class. Tuesday was the usual yoga (no gliding yoga this week) and then I ended up fueling up with some ENERGYbits and hitting the 8pm Crossfit class. I kind of felt like having an impromptu dance party in the middle of Crossfit.

Strength
Power Clean – 75% 4×5 I just rolled with 55#

WOD
3 rounds:
– 500m row
– 12 Overhead Squats @ 65% Power Snatch
– 50 Double Unders (x2 skip)

For my overhead squats I just used the 15# training bar because I’m terrible at them and 12 is a lot. I really wanted to do all double unders, but 50 is a lot and the rowing and squats tuckered me out quick so I just stuck with double the amount of skips.

I finished in 12:41

Wednesday I had registered for the baby food making class so I wasn’t able to hit the mommas class either. I decided to wait until the Thursday 8pm class. It’s so much easier to go to that class without Liam and I enjoy that hardly anyone goes to it.

Strength
Sumo Deadlift – 85% 5×3 – I rolled with 105# and felt good. I’m still working on the knee issue, this will be ongoing.

WOD 
AMRAP in 10 min:
– 5 Push Press
– 7 Hang Cleans
– 9 Deadlifts

*use one bar for all movements @ 30% of your Deadlift

I just used an empty 45# bar. It actually felt pretty light throughout. The only thing that was dragging me down was my wrists. They were just burning. I might have been able to get in another round or two if I didn’t have to stop to shake my wrists out so much. I still managed 9 rounds which was a bit higher than average. Coach Melea said I should probably retest my 1RM deadlift soon. She suspects my 1RM is higher and that I could have used a bit more weight for this workout.

My calluses are coming along nicely.

Hopefully next week I can get a few more workouts in!

How did you workout this week?

    Good job on the workouts!

    I’ve done my workouts this week but they haven’t been great. I think I need to change my diet because I feel so sluggish each day/night.
