CrossFit Open 17.5

Met Con

10 rounds for time of:

9 Thrusters (95/65)
35 Double-unders

Jeremey – 16:24
Charlotte – 38:20

I really should have been 15 minutes or slightly less on this one. I broke up the thrusters far too much. I did 9 the first set, but then, I did 5/4 the last 9 sets. I only messed up on double unders once and then stopped once because my shoulders were on fire. All other sets were unbroken. I should’ve pushed to get more unbroken. Another CrossFit Open done!

CrossFit Open 17.4

This was a repeat of 16.4. I knew I was in better shape, and I thought I had handstand push-ups down. While I had much much more time on the wall, I couldn’t meet the standard and kept falling off the wall!

13-Minute AMRAP:

55 Deadlifts, 225# / 155#
55 Wall-Ball Shots, 20# / 14#
55 Calorie Row
55 Handstand Push-ups

Jeremey: 166 reps (10:21 tiebreak)
Charlotte: 115 reps

I guarantee you I have the fastest split of anyone that did 1 HSPU. So much wasted time on the wall!

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.

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!

Time cap: 20 minutes

Jeremey: 19:39 (rx)
Charlotte: 166 reps (rx)

My goal was to finish so I guess I have to be excited about my time. I really thought I had a shot to go mid 18’s though. I was certainly on pace through the round of 30. I finished the set of 10 in roughly 2 min. The set of 20 was at 5:00 or so. The set of 30 was about 9:00. The set of 40 is where I fell apart. My split time going into the last round was 13:32, and I knew I had to hurry if I was going to get this thing done. I did the set of 50 snatches in 10’s, 8’s, and 7’s. I should’ve just stuck with 10’s, but I was absolutely crushed by that point.
