Friday Night at SISU with Jason
The warmup was double unders some pushups situps and then wall facing overhead squat.
Here is some insight on my feelings about looking at this —- hell. Its going to go so bad, I am not good at any of these movments. I can’t do doubles, I can’t over head squat, I am just straight up bad at everything this workout stands for and I am going to be disappointed in myself, thats just the reality of tonight when I first looked at the board.
The warmup with the wall actually helps a lot, I can’t believe I wasn’t using it before. Something so simple helps me so much. Helps keep my chest up, helps me push my hips out, push the knees out, its great.
For skills we worked on you guessed it, over head squat. Doing a little set to work up to a heavy set. I am not going to push myself too much on these because of two reasons 1) I am not strong at this 2) combo that with sore shoulder = injury that I dont’ need / want.
My ladder looked like this:
The 135 wasn’t too bad actually but I was working with Colin, otherwise I probably would have just done 95 over and over again. The good news is 95 will feel light when its time for the workout. I am doing a lot right, but a lot wrong too, just need more practice.
5 Rounds for time
100 Double Unders
15 Overhead Squat (95/65)
So for the double unders I am not good at them so I figured I’ll just do singles, oh no its a workout to practice these get them down, working on them is the only way to get better, yes thats Jason talking, yes he’s right. So instead I get an option to do 3-4 minutes of work then move on, yes per round so right there is 15-20 minutes of my time. Not leaving a lot for the over head squat but its only 15 how hard can it be?….
Well the jump rope doubles isn’t going well I am doing good work on them, finding the occasional one that I get and then the over head squats, god awful. I am trying to get 7 or 8 reps but not happening.
So I work through this thing. I spend 3- 3:30 seconds per round on double under work and the amazing thing is there were points where I am super tired and I string two or even three together, thats pretty awesome. Too bad I can’t do it consistently.
The over head squats I had points at which I think they went good, but more that weren’t good. I do however love the feeling when you do one of these right. Most of them I was either on my toes, too much on my heels, not getting my knees out etc etc. Just a lot of work.
Yes as predicted I am very frustrated. Last workout of the year, nice ending. fml
