Mini vacation – drop in @ Rams Training

I had one week off and we decided to do a three day trip to Poland, it is about a 3-4 hour ride to Kolberg, a town right on the Baltic Sea. There is even a gym that is doing wods and CF orientated stuff but they are not an official affiliate because the yearly fee you have to pay is really expensive for them. the drop in was only 7 Euro and the program and the gym were really cool. The weather was perfect, we walked along the beach, rented bikes and cruised around…

Snatch Day

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.

Monday-Funday 8/5/17

Finally back to my Monday routine, three classes in a row felt good. The bodyweight wod was fun, my wall balls still suck, I always tell myself to practice them more often but of course, no time at all, al toes to bar were unbroken, the hspu I did on an ab mat with plates which makes it more harder because you go deeper than with a normal mat, what it makes it more to a deficit haspu, good to practice.

I am not very happy with my snatch progress, wait…., what progress?!? I am stuck with my weight, it even feels harder and less consistent, I know it is all in my head and I also really struggle with the technique, it sucks…

Monday

It is quite hard to get a spot for a class right now because we have so many new members in the gym, at least I could do the regular wod today…

Weightlifting class was full, it is okay for this week because we have to do the qualifier for the French Throwdown, so I have to be careful with my trainings session.

I did the WOD 2 as a trial last Friday, 1 RM Squat Clean, 75 kg. 77.5 kg did not work because I sat under the bar but could not get up. Annoying, my 1 RM front squat is 90kg… But I squatted before, so I guess, that was the reason. Still, I probably won’t do it again because of 2kg. I am not a big fan of doing 1 RMs anyways… Tomorrow I ll do WOD 1:

Back in the gym…

It is always the same, coming back after the holidays is hard. You have to motivate yourself to go back to training and the first couple of days suck…, even after only 2 weeks with little sessions in between… Strict pull ups suck, strict muscle up suck, handstand walk sucks, weights feels so much heavier and and and…

We came back on Wednesday and I went to the box the same night to do the class and weightlifting:
