Murh Murph Murph…

What a coincident we did Murph today during bodyweight class, 30 degrees by the way… It is Memorial in the US, CF boxes in the States mostly do this wod on that day. So I am not sure if it was planned or not.

I was thinking about going slower than usual because I was also signed in for the regular class and weightlifting (my usual triple Monday)… Well, did not work that well. I actually did not go too hard during the run and I slowed down the squats a bit. My push ups were kinda slow, also my pull ups should have gone better. Well I worked around 85-90 % most of the time. It took me 42:52 minutes. I still wanna have a under 40 minutes time one day, it is possible with rest and a little bit less heat and rest beforehand.

Afterwards I did the regular class but I slowed down and canceled weightlifting…

Find your 1 RM back squat & amrap @ 85%
I skipped this part because it makes no sense to 1rm during my vacation without lifters and a belt. I actually wanted to do my bsq program but I had my plan not there, so I just did 4×3 175 lbs with my new metcons 2. It felt not easy, oh man I hate that feeling during vacation…

wod for quality
4 rds
7 strict pull ups
7 strict hspu
7 ring dips
7 evil wheels

The 2nd time hspu…,well I would have prefered a barbell wod but it is also good to work on my gymnastic skills…
Overall the box was nice, the floor a bit dirty with dog hair everywhere and a bit dark. Some of the back squats I have seen were questionable, technique wise…
