3/5/17

Not feeling great today. The whole house is sick. Still, got out to the dog park with Tucker and rucked 3 miles with 30#.

I was going to wait until tomorrow to give 17.2 another go, but Todd and Heather were headed back to the gym tonight so I decided to do it at 7:30pm with them.

12 Min AMRAP Of:

2 Rounds:
50′ Front Rack DB Lunges (50/35#)
16 Toes 2 Bar
8 DB Power Clean (50/35#)

2 Rounds Of:
50′ Front Rack DB Lunges (50/35#)
16 Bar Muscle Up
8 DB Power Clean (50/35#)

This time, I got 12 muscle ups in the first round. I did two things differently. On the T2B, I went in 4’s so I didn’t blow out my core. On the DB cleans and lunges, I did 7 reps, rested, did the 8th and then started lunging immediately. I didn’t rest at all on the lungs this time around. My split time was 4:50 so I was about on pace for last time.

When I got to the bar, I did a set of 4 right away and thought, “this is what it should feel like!” Then, I did a set of 3 and some 2’s. Unfortunately, I lost them after about 11 and had to struggle for that 12th. Such is life. I still know I should be able to do 16 and get to the next round. 

3/3/17

CrossFit Open 17.2! I was pumped to see the bar muscle-ups in this one as I thought I would do well. The workout didn’t play out like I had hoped though.

12 Min AMRAP Of:

2 Rounds:
50′ Front Rack DB Lunges (50/35#)
16 Toes 2 Bar
8 DB Power Clean (50/35#)

2 Rounds Of:
50′ Front Rack DB Lunges (50/35#)
16 Bar Muscle Up
8 DB Power Clean (50/35#)

Jeremey – 85 reps (7 muscle-ups)
Charlotte – 78 reps

I started off pretty strong. My T2B were sets of 8 for the first set. Then, I went straight into the DB cleans and knocked those out. I rested before doing the lunges and repeated that whole cycle again. When I got to the bar for the muscle-ups (roughly 6 minutes in), I thought I had a good shot of at least getting to the second set of bar muscle-ups. For whatever reason though, I couldn’t get them going. I missed my first attempt, then did 2, then 3, then 2, then I couldn’t get back up. One of the most frustrating experiences I’ve had.

I’ll be repeating this one again on Monday!

Warm-up

20 Lunges
10 Burpee Broad jumps
10 Goblet Stretch
10 Tricep Extensions (bar)
10 Front Squats
At the bottom of your 10th front squat do 10 “got it, lost it”

-Banded Front Rack
-1st Rib Stretch

WOD

5 Rounds

3 Bar Muscle-ups
4 Power Cleans #135
5 Front Squats #135
6 Push Jerks #135
7 Bar-over Burpees

Jeremey: 22:12

135# on the Push Jerks is still pretty heavy for me. Started doing sets of 3, but ended doing sets of 1 and 2 to get through the set of 6. Progress though! I would’ve scaled this one previously.
