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 😦
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*
Wallballs 20/14lbs 10/9ft
*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…
Heavy Metcon with a partner
200 cal row
10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 (you go, I go) bench RX bodyweight (I did 50-52.5)

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. 😦
I started my day with snatch practice…, because I suck in it… Still very sad and disappointed with my open score. Afterwards it became more fun when we did pr heavy metcon:

Haha, this time I kinda programmed the wod and it was a lot of work… Afterwards we ordered Burrito, this was the fun part 😀
Haha, this time I kinda programmed
I started the hatch cycle for my bench and strict press again because I feel I have to work on them, otherwise I will get weaker immediately in this areas. Today was week two, day one. It felt good. Furthermore I still kinda use the misfits back squat cycle, even with my own timing: Build up to one heavy rep around 90% and then 5×3 with one weight. Today it was 1x95kg and 5×3 87,5 kg. I feel more comfortable now squatting heavier sets. Next week I’ll probably repeat the same sets again.
