Back in the box

I came back to Berlin very late, two hours later than expected, thanks to German Train System… So I was a bit worried about going to the box and doing the qualifying for the German Throwdown

But the time is running and I have to be done by Sunday with all three wods and this week is kinda busy anyways. Today I start teaching to kids gymnastic classes at a school in Berlin which also takes away a bit of my working out time… But it is nice to teach kids and get some more experience in it…

I decided to do wod three, a letter
10-9-8-…1 Hanstand Push Ups & Snatch (15 min timecap)

Because I am actually older than 35 (:( ) I am a master at the German Throwdown. It sounds weird and makes me feel old… But the RX division is a bit to crazy on the weights. The power snatch with 45 kg (around 93 lbs)and another wod KB snatch with 24kg (around 52 lbs). This is crazy for a qualifying wod, a lot of people got mad about this weights. I do understand it because for me it would be crazy heavy and probably impossible.

aster weights are a bit lighter, still not easy:
Power Snatch 35kg, the KB snatch for the other wod 20 kg and you are not allowed to swing behind your legs – STUPID

I finished 12:01 min, I got a bit mad about the HSPU because there was this rule how to measure them out (like at the open wod), a little bit to picky in my opinion…, whatever. We will see where I finish up

Afterwards I did the regular wod and I have to admit I was a bit tired… 🙂 I cheated a bit with the warm up because I already was hot… 😀
