Deload week – not for me 1/6/15

I am not so happy with the current cycle and the deload week because I don not think it is helpful for me and my progress,so I have to do some extra work next to the classes. I am also not so happy with the kinda easy wods because they don’t challenge me and I feel lazy…

My brother is in the city. He just started CrossFit. So we trained a bit together. I looked at his movements and gave him some tipps. We did shoulder press, backsquat, deadlift, some handstand work and practiced pull ups.

Monday and Tuesday after the competition 4/5715 5/5/15

On Monday I felt a bit sore, actually not too tired. I went to the box for a little afternoon session. No barbell was involved… We did the first part of the wod which included mobility and turkish get up (sets of 5 with 8kg, 12kg, 16, kg and one set of 20kg). Afterwards we did some strict muscle up. I did my first weighted MU- using a 2.5kg plate. We practiced butterfly pull ups and finished with a strict pull up ladder: 8/7/6/5/4/3/2/1

On Tuesday I did a 5km run, active recovery. I felt really tired during the run and was kinda slow, so it was good to take the day off.

In the afternoon we met for a team training.
In teams of three, four teams

60 hang power clean 45kg/
80 front squat 40/

I worked with one guy and one girl. The challenge was not let the bar down during transitions. It worked pretty well. I rx the weights, the guy, too. The other girl used some lighter weights for deadlift, clean and squat, so we had to change the weights more often but it worked fine. We finished third, which was fine and fun…

WOD 22/3/14

Another benchmark Sunday but not manageable with RX weight, 24kg Kettlebell for girls…, now way… It was shoulder and arm wod in combination with technique, not very fun actually but I think good for working on strength and skills.

I used 12kg KB for the get ups and the squats and 20kg KB for the swings, pain in the ass…. :O Lol as you can see from the results some people did not write their weights. I think no one was using RX weights, the girls except me and another one used between 4-8 kg for the squats and get ups and 12kg/16kg for the swings, lol all the early finishing girls did, that explains the good time as well 😉

Afterwards I did a bit weightlifting but was more focusing on getting ready for repeating the 14.4 open wod, my goal is to hit the 180, I m not getting a muscle up done but I wanna finish the cleans. I am a bit scared because it is very exhausting. My rowing is not very good and the cleans are really heavy at the end, so fingers crossed for another try…
