Every 2:00 for 8:00, perform:
2 Push Press + 2 Push Jerk
I worked up 135, 145, 155, and 165 today. I was aiming for 155 coming in so I was happy to hit 165. Felt good! Could’ve probably hit 175 if I really pushed it.
5×3:00 AMRAPs with 1:30 rest between:
- 4 Clean and Jerk (135)
- 8 Pull-up
- 12 Box Jump
Continue AMRAP each time.
I made it a total of 10+14 today. The box jumps were the main problem! Not difficult – just got me breathing. Pull-ups were unbroken the entire time.
I felt pretty beat up this morning. Not sure why I was so sore! I did have 3 drinks last night, which didn’t help my sleep I’m sure. After a morning with the boys, I was out in the garage at 10:30AM for a workout.
21-15-9 reps for time:
- Shoulder to Overhead, 115# (I did push jerks)
- C2B Pull-ups
This was a CrossFit Games Teens Qualifier in 2017 so it was actually programmed at 135/95. I knew that wasn’t going to be appropriate for me even if I was feeling absolutely dynamite. I ended up scaling to 115# hoping I wouldn’t need many breaks.
I ended up breaking everything down with 8/7/6 for the first round, 6/5/4 for the second, and 5/4 for the third. Even my C2B pull-ups felt terrible. I’ve done 21 unbroken before (butterfly) without much problem, but today, I had to switch to a typical gymnastics kip after the first 21 reps. No bueno!
Finished in a disappointing 7:24.
Dejectedly, I ended the workout with some combination of the accessory work I’ve missed this week:
2 rounds not for time:
- 20 Alternating Pistols
- 10 Windshield Wipers
I feel like I should’ve done more today, but I just wasn’t feeling it. Going to focus on fueling up and getting two good nights of rest so I’ll feel ready to go on Monday.
Headed into the 11:30AM class today for some strict pressing. My calves are feeling pretty sore from yesterday’s running and double unders. Compound that with a lack of sleep due to kids, and I wasn’t feeling 100% today.
- 1+@125 (Got 3 reps)
Felt good on the strict press actually. I probably could’ve eeked out maybe 1 more rep if I really pushed it. Got soft in the legs and stopped at 3.
3 rounds for time:
- 15 Cal Bike
- 15 Push Jerks (115#)
- 9 C2B Pull-ups
This felt like a classic CrossFit triplet. I originally wrote it with 20 cal row, but I did bike because I was in the side room. The push jerks were originally set to be at your strict press 1RM, but that was too heavy for me so I scaled to 115#.
I went 9/6 on the first two sets and then 6/5/4 on the last set. C2B pull-ups felt great, and I went unbroken pretty easily. Used the bike mostly as a recovery between efforts. Final time was 9:57.
Out in the garage at 11:30am with Charlotte to knock this one out. Graham watched as he decided he wasn’t going to nap.
Shoulder press 1-1-1-1-1 reps
Push press 3-3-3-3-3 reps
Push Jerk 5-5-5-5-5 reps
We last did this one in November of 2017. Back then, I hit 135/155/155. I hit the exact same today. My shoulders were pretty sore still from Saturday. Actual numbers:
After taking both kids to Starbucks so Charlotte could workout, she took over the kids so I was solo around 9am to lift.
To prep for the workout, I worked up in some push jerks.
4 min EMOM: 3 Push Jerks
Then, I hit the workout for the day.
18 min AMRAP:
- 12 Cal Bike
- 9 Push Jerks (135)
- 12 PVC Sit-ups
Did all the push jerks in sets of 5/4.
Back in the gym today! Headed into the 11AM class. As much as I love training at home, it’s always nice to get to train with other folks, especially during a workout I enjoy.
Today, we repeated 13.2, which I actually did a few weeks back. Previous scores were:
Back on 7/7/20, I had only slept a few hours the night previous so I knew I could do far better and probably PR.
10 min AMRAP:
- 5 Shoulder to Overhead (115#)
- 10 Deadlift (115#)
- 15 Box Jump
I moved consistently through everything and ended up PRing with 8+14! Really stoked about that. Rebounded each box jump and took a quick breath between the S2OH and deadlift each time instead of trying to hang on to the bar.
Headed into the gym for this fun little double AMRAP:
6 min AMRAP:
- 5 Push Jerk (115#)
- 10 T2B
- 20 Double Under
Rest 3:00. Then, repeat starting where you left off.
I went out of the gate hot on this one unbroken on the T2B for the first two sets. Obviously, I knew that wasn’t going to last so I dropped down to 6/4 until my very last set. Ended up going:
For a total of 10+12.
Still no baby yet! Yesterday was the official due date. We have a doctor appointment scheduled for later today. Given that the baby is going to come any moment now, I’m cherishing the workouts while I can still get them in.
I roped Zach into coming to the gym with me to knock out this week’s Monster Mash series from CrossFit Linchpin. We started around 10:45AM.
7 rounds of:
- 7 Burpee Box Jump Overs, 24″
- 3 Bar Muscle-ups
2 rounds of:
- 35 Med Ball Cleans, 20 lbs
- 15 Push Jerks, 115 lbs
3 rounds of:
- 25 Kettlebell Swings, 53 lbs
- 15 Toes-to-bars
- 15 Ring Dips
I’m not sure if it was because of the order, but these definitely progressed from most to least favorite! I was pretty out of gas by the final piece. Rested 5 minutes between pieces.
5 sets of the following complex:
- 2 Push Press
- 1 Push Jerk
- 1 Split Jerk
I worked up 95, 115, 135, 145, 155, 165.
10 min AMRAP:
- 6 Push Jerks (115#)
- 15 Cal Assault Bike
5 sets of:
- 2 Push Press
- 1 Push Jerk
- 1 Split Jerk
I worked up from 95 to 155. Felt pretty solid.
12 min EMOM:
- Min 1: 7 Push Press then max push jerks (95#)
- Min 2: 5 Burpees then 40 unbroken DUs
I was getting anywhere from 15 (first round) to 5 (last round) push jerks.
