Next Qualifier Beach Throwdown

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*
Calorie Row
Wallballs 20/14lbs 10/9ft
Pull up
*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…

10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 power clean (we made that up, instead of sled push because it just rained, I started easy with 45 and went up to a medium weight 55)

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. 😦

French Throwdown – we made it…

Saturday- Challenge makes you Bääääm- 14/2/15 Valentines Day…

I rested in the morning to do the 3rd team challenge WOD afternoon. It was:

one athlet has to do one of the following WODs for the total amount of time:
21-15-9

a) Full Snatch 30/45kg
Bar Facing Burpees

b) Thruster 35/50kg
Bar Facing Burpees

c) Full Clean 40/60
Bar Facing Burpees

d) Deadlift 45/70
Bar Facing Burpees

I did the cleans It was quite hard. I started doing seven or eight unbroken but it hurt. Going into the depth was harder than I though and the burpees afterwards, it was though… I soon started to break the sets in threes/twos. The last set I did one by one. It felt like the fastest way. Dropping the bar, breathing and going back to it. Our total time was 27:36 min, the time was too good I guess because the judges wanted to see a video. We filmed it but is was a huge file so I hope it did not take too long to upload it on you tube… We’ss see if they are happy with our performance and will accept it. I hope we fulfil all movement standards. If so, we are on position 13 in the ranking right now…

Afterwards I did the deadlift from the morning 5×5 with 77.5kg. They felt really good. I looked for a good form and they really felt good as well… 🙂 I think I did some skill training but I did not keep track what I have exactly done… :O
At night I enjoyed a nice vegetarian cheat Valentine’s Dinner at a really great restaurant in Mitte…
