15 pull ups
9 hspu
RX 6:20
This was fun, I started doing the pull ups unbroken but had to split them up in 10s and 5 in the third set, all the other movements very unbroken.

Afterwards I went to the weightlifting class and worked on overhead stuff, not too successful … 😉

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…

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…
