Berlin Throwdown

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

http://www.berlin-throwdown.com/

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.

Friday

When I saw the open announcement in the morning I decided to do (at least) partly the wod at my box today. It just kicked right into my face, I do have one big weakness: squat snatch-heavy squat snatch, and this is all the open wod was about… 😦 A sad moment for me…

Prior to 8:00, complete:
3 rounds of:
6 chest-to-bar pull-ups
6 squat snatches, 95 lb.
Then, 3 rounds of:
7 chest-to-bar pull-ups
5 squat snatches, 135 lb.
*Prior to 12:00, complete 3 rounds of:
8 chest-to-bar pull-ups
4 squat snatches, 185 lb.
*Prior to 16:00, complete 3 rounds of:
9 chest-to-bar pull-ups
3 squat snatches, 225 lb.
*Prior to 20:00, complete 3 rounds of:
10 chest-to-bar pull-ups
2 squat snatches, 245 lb.
Prior to 24:00, complete 3 rounds of:
11 chest-to-bar pull-ups
1 squat snatch 265 lb.

*If all reps are completed, time cap extends by 4 minutes.

The snatch is my weakest movement since I started CrossFit…, if you compare my development, everything went up or became easier (some slower but still okay) but not the snatch. I am sooooooooo far behind with this lift, made rarely progress in the last years. I am scared to put weight above my head, I still don’t get the technique, pull too early, not close enough to my body, jump to wide when catching the bar, it is a big issue. My one RM is 50kg which is a joke for the time I’ve been doing CrossFit.

So when the wod was online I knew I am gonna be suck anyways… I decided to do the Friday class instead resting to practice my snatch, chest to bar pull ups and do a light metcon:

Friday 16/12/16

I had to hurry to the box right after work because I will go on a weekend trip tonight, Vienna here we come. I did the 12pm class but because of my foot and now my left arm as well, I had to modify the wod. It really pissed me off because it was a good one…

Thursday 8/12/16

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…

Bodyweight Class
Warm-up 2x
5 burpees
15 du
5 strict knees to chest
15 sec handstand hold

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…
😦

I made up my own wod:
emom 2 muscle ups for 20 min

Afterwards I did a little calm down wod:
3 rounds
30 call assault
40 push ups
30 ghd sit ups

Haha, then I felt ready to go home… 🙂
