I was so done after the first wod… My friend, who is really strong and fast was right behind me. I finished my first round right in front of her and this kept me motivated to push even harder. The shoulder to overhead are not my strongest movement anyways, so amrap 2 was horrible, the barbell felt like 5kg heavier, I could not really cycle a lot of reps. Two weeks ago when I did a partner metcon with a friend of mine, we had to do 21 reps, using 35kg. This weight was fine to do one set unbroken and then go for 10/11 reps and 5-6. Well, at least I did it. Work on your weknesses… 😉

Monday 19/6/17

I could go right back into training…, just a little sore in my triceps, probably the ski erg. I had a meeting today at school, so I was not sure which class I will make but I was done earlier than expected, so weightlifting and afterwards I just did the workout from the reg. class. I did ghd sit ups instead of toes 2 bars because I ripped some of my fingers on the weekend…

weightlifting: SNATCH day (nth new here)
wod:
3 rds for time
30 ghd sit ups
30 mountain climbers
800 m run

This one hurt… Official box timecap was 15 min, nobody made that time. I decided to finish anyways and needed around 16:54. It was horrible exhausting, there was this one athlete chasing me all the time and I did not want her to pass me, she was a really good runner, I am quite sure the run did not bother her. I almost felt down… Good to be pushed but horrible on the other side as well.

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…

Saturday 22/4/17

I still train on a regular base: 6 days a week but it i so hard to keep track on all workouts and write about them. As I am using behind the whiteboard to log my results I sometimes just skip writing my CF blog because of time issues. 😉

Last Saturday I went as usual to the morning class and did the 9am class with my favorite Saturday buddy. Unfortunately it was a little chaotic with the workout or the explanation ( I am not sure who’s fault it is).

Warm-up
40 burpees
*partner holds empty bar overhead
40cal row
*patner holds dead hang
40 wall balls
*partner holds deep squat

Metcon (Time) in teams of 2
*barbell is not allowed to touch the floor, every time you drop it is 5 synchronized burpee over the bar for the team

40 hang power clean 50/35
300m run /w barbell
40 s2o 50/35
300m run /w barbell
40 ohs 50/35
300m run /w barbell
40 thruster 50/35
300m run /w barbell
40 burpees (partner holds barbell. Don’t drop it…. You’re almost there!)

So the goal was to hold the barbell all the time and not putting it on the floor. But if you have 2 barbells because male-female you also were supposed to hold the barbell the whole timen and both supposed to run with one barbell. There is kinda no rest for one of them, while others just share one barbell?”!?!

So we started with one barbell, using 50 kg. We did the hang clean, the run, the s2o. Then it started to rain, so one held the barbell while the other was running. I ran. The I started OHS but realized they would be too heavy to do more than 3-4, it was stupid because the RX weight for girls was 15 kg less. It would have taken too long. So I set up another barbell. Then we had to keep them both away from the floor and had kinda no rest in between, so we dropped them a couple of times and did the burpees. In the middle we were told it supposed to be burpees over the barbell… What a chaotic start into the day…

In the afternoon I came back. I am always looking for a new program I can follow because I feel the box program is not right for me, we hardly do things I am not good at. Right now the getting stronger and work on your strengths, doing less metcons and barbell cycling doe not help me getting better. Lindsey Velenzuela, one of the strong CG girls from the US posted on her instagram account sth about “the welded athlete”. I googled it and gathered some information. For 20 dollars a month you can join them. There is an app you can work with, to compare, log your results and see the daily wod. I looked at the test program and really liked it and decided to give it a shot. So I did the first session on Saturday. It was not an easy one… 😉

Monday 27/3/17

New cycle at our box, I am not so happy about it…, less metcons with cardio stuff and barbells, instead more focusing on basic gymnastic work and skills. Not so good for more advanced athletes…, I am still thinking about joining the brute strengths program(after my bad open workout 17.3). But if I do so, I kinda have to train on my own, stick with the plan and also find times to do so, open gym is not so flexible with my working schedule. On the other hand, there are a couple of free spaces also after 5pm because bodyweight will take place outdoor during spring, summer and early fall.

Warm-up
