Next Qualifier Beach Throwdown

Woohoo, it kinda never ends with these qualifiers… We registered for the Beach Throwdown in the Netherlands and the results must be online until Wednesday night. So we did two of three today. I had a wod appointment with one of my fav wod buddies, so I decided to do number 3 another day (I did not know that the deadline is already Wednesday…), so I have to do it somehow on my busy and long working day 😦

https://www.leaderwod.com/en/website/event/22/Beach-Throwdown-2017

QUALIFIER WORKOUT A
With a clock counting up complete as many rounds as possible in 8 minutes of:
16 Box Jump Overs (24”/20”)
8 Deadlifts (regular 100kg / 65kg)
Add 10kg to the deadlift weight when both athletes have completed a full round
Tiebreak there is tiebreak after the last fully completed round of boxjumps.
– We will do that tomorrow

QUALIFIER WORKOUT B
A combined total of 10 attempts (5 attempts per athlete) in a ground to shoulder, shoulder to overhead.
Each athlete has to make exactly 5 attempts at a lift.
The total weight of the lifts is your end score.
You are free to choose in wich order you and your buddy make the lifts.
If an athlete fails an attempt at a lift, the lift counts as 0kg. Every missed lift will count as one of the athletes attempts.
Both Athletes use the same single bar throughout the workout
Athletes are not allowed to deload the bar once the 8 minutes start: the weight must either stay the same or go up at each attempt.
Athletes are allowed to start with a loaded bar and may assist each other in loading the bar.

QUALIFIER WORKOUT C
FOR TIME 27-21-15-9*
Calorie Row
Wallballs 20/14lbs 10/9ft
Pull up
*Both athletes have to complete a full round of every movement before switching to the next.
Each buddy pair will use one rower and wallball.

It was kinda stupid to do Murph on Monday. I was sore, my pull ups felt not that easy and the wall balls sucked because of my legs from squatting and running. We will see how it turns out…

Haha, it took forever but it was fun. 😀 I have to get back to my welded athlete trainings plan to really work on fitness soon. I really like the structure of the wods and I am feeling a litte bad not taking time to do the workouts. 😦

Bitch Work Sunday 14/5/17

Today I went to the box and get some cardio done. Well, it was not fun. Afterwards I did the back squat from last Monday. That was all for today. I enjoyed my evening at a good Korean restaurant in Berlin, getting ready for the next Berlin Throwdown Qualifier wod this week

Berlin Throwdown

So, the next qualifier is already on and I am not sure if I am ready…

Our box started this competition last year and this year they give another shot. I am in the same team as last year. My strong and daily getting better friend – and me…ohoh. They announced the first wod on Monday and even the cycle in our box id totally different right now, they decided to it as today’s wod. So I skipped the class because I wanna do it on Friday or Sunday.

My performances were not that good but they are okay for a team to qualify, Mostly upper part stuff, almost no legs (just rowing and burpee box jumps- both not my fav after being not so tall and my ankle injury), nothing long just short and things I am not the best in 😉

Yesterday I just did the class and the welded athlete metcon which hurt… 😉

Today I did a little more than expected and it was awesome… 😉

Before class
back squat 6×2 85kg
It is so weird, I don’t think my squat is getting better anymore. For almost a year now I feel like I am doing the same weights and it still feels heavy. As soon as I stop squatting for a couple of days or squat less I feel it. It is annoying… I will start a new cycle after Christmas to see it it will give me some more strengths… The same with my deadlift, I feel it got worse…

Class
Still testing… I did one set of a heavy deadlift, 115kg, 10kg away from my PR but it felt so heavy. 😦 I hope, it is just because of my foot injury. I also deadlift less than before. My focus is more on weightlifting and gymnastics…
