Another night with Jason at SISU
Ugh bear crawls on the warm up… I really do hate these things. But I found out something that I hate worse. Crab Crawls…. I am NOT good at them at all. And I am super slow and I need to get out of the gate sooner with them so I can actually finish them without everyone looking at me going WTF?!?
I did pretty good with the handstand walk. I took a few steps and I actually didn’t crash hard or break anything. I feel more and more comfortable with these things… The funny thing was I was at lifetime yesterday and I decided to take a few minutes and practice them, what a coincidence.
The Toes to bar actually were REALLY hard with the slow down. I could do two sometimes three a few times one…. Slow controlled down… ugh!
For the skills we were working on a 3 rep max push press, I wanted to murder this lift…. It was six sets of 3 and he wanted to get into weight right away!
3-3-3-3-3-3 Work to a 3 rep max Push Press
My ladder looked like:
95, easy — 135, easy — 155 easy, — 165 medium, — 185 hard, 205 max
I thought I would just try 225 since I had some time, I failed, I got it moving but just didn’t finish it. On to the workout.
5 Rounds for time
15 Push Press (Pick Weight)
20 Box Jump (24/20)
Score – weight / seconds
Picking a weight knowing determines my score is hard, it makes me nervous especially after last weeks hell… But you know what I am going to go for it and I am going to do 135.
So diving into this with a strategy of getting some sets of push press unbroken and breaking out box jumps into 10’s then 5’s. Start out good but slower then two others in the class and I did it unbroken, both box jumps and push presses.
Second set I break my push presses into 5’s. That worked well actually and box jumps again unbroken, am I really doing box jumps unbroken?!? Am I really putting weight down?!? So thrid set same thing 5’s and unbroken. Fourth set was a bit odd…. I did six push presses, then four, then three then two… odd.. The box jumps I broke out a bit after 10 and took a small break.
Now I am seeing people finish, I am thinking I was killing this but I am a bit on the slow side for my liking. I finish up the 5th set with a push press set that causes me to swear when I no rep my last rep and drop the bar…. dam you barbell… Do it again and then I PLOW through the box jumps thinking I am trying to finish in front of a few people….Turns out they still had sets left…
I feel really good about this workout, I really felt like I did it well and that its suited for me this type. I can’t wait to do this again sometime, I can and will do better.
My Time 14:24 @ 135 = 156
