Thursday night with Jason M at SISU
Start with a 400M run outside of course because its 40 and snow is melting. Then we dive into some shoulder smash, Whitney was my partner and she was doing OK, and it was a bit uncomfortable shes getting better at it, learning to center her weight. But Massie sees this as an opportunity to be a good friend. He gets on there and is crushing me. Whitney said he was popping up handstands on me… it was destruction and awesome. And my shoulders felt great all night, first time in awhile. We then start these little mini groups to go across the gym and do planks and jump overs. Someone jumps gets to the end gets in the plank new end jumps etc etc. The planks wrecked me… Then we did it back… ugh. Then we did some crawl unders and bridges…. I am working hard at these.
Working on power cleans today, I decide to help a couple people and not focus so much on me, which is OK because I was still able to get a few sets in and also help people out with their cleans. I did do a 3 rep 195, that was pretty good. Whitney is going to be good at these when she can attach all the movements together. Chris is well Chris and is good at everything but a few finer points and he will beast things.
Workout of the Day
Find your 3 rep max.
20 Min AMRAP
10 Power Cleans
15 Ring Dips
Getting after this wod I decided I was going to do the doubles the day I read this workout. I knew it was the deal and I knew I wouldn’t do FANTASTIC. So I also loaded up the bar with 185 for my cleans, I may as well get some good work in there on these.
The first round was hard, the ring dips were hard the cleans were hard I guess the situps went fine… But the dam double unders I just couldn’t get em. I got one 9 in a row a couple 7’s and a few 5’s otherwise it was onesy twosy the whole way. FRUSTRATING. I spent OVER half this workout on doubles alone.
Ring dips I did strict and I did them OK. I guess there may have been one or two questionable ones, but honnestly I felt great about these. THough they did take a little longer then I wanted.
Cleans were heavy but I managed I made good form and got them going in doubles and sometimes triples. First round I think I did 5.
Overall I am disappointed with my day. But I have to get better, the only way I am going to get better is to do these workouts. It shows me what I need to work on and it shows me that when I dont’ work on them I get punished. Workouts like this are a punishment for me for NOT doing things like double under work. So I lick my wounds go home and come back to fight another day.
My Score: 2 +20 dubs.
