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…

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…

Two more days until my summer break. It is time. I feel tired and exhausted also my CrossFit training enthusiasm is not there anymore, so I guess I also need a little break from my CF routine.

Tuesday5/4/16

Only couple of day until The Berlin Throwdown this weekend…

Berlin Throwdown – Your Fitness Event in Berlin

The team competition will be on Saturday, the individuals will compete on Sunday. I am in a team. It is more kinda a partner thing because we are only two persons… 😉 The wods are not announced yet, so we just play a little bit around, practice skills and we’ll see what happens.

Today I started with a fun part – strict muscle ups: 5×4 – whohooo – felt good. I have to try 7 unbroken in the next days 😉 Afterwards I worked on bar muscle ups, they still suck and did some handstand work practice. The it was time do sth for me:

back squat
8×66
8×72
6×77
2×6 83kg – was heavy but okay…

snatch grip press behind the neck 5×10 15kg, 1min rest
I started it as a new cycle…

snatch high pull 5×4 48kg

Partner Wod

1)buy in 800m run :/
100 partner wall balls men height
80 box jump overs
60 pistols
40 t2b
20 handstand push up
buy out 800 m run

The run is the most difficult part for me because I am not the fastest… The partner wall balls were okay, we got a couple of no reps because of me, I first had to get used to the men’s height in combination with the partner work.

2)you go – I go
10-9-…1
thruster+pull ups 30kg

I did all sets unbroken which seemed to be fine after all the work I have done before

Class – I only did the deadlift part:
Deadlift
3×3 107kg, 2min rest

Let’s see if I can hit 110kg next week…
