Push Jerk 5-5-5+ 65%-75%-85% of 1RM
Some of Gattone's cues really are paying off - have the bar higher on my chest and elbows a bit forward of the bar - take a deep breath and use that shelf I've created to push the bar into the air. Solid performance today - should have stuck it out and got 7 on the 85k!
60 - 70 - 85 x 5
Another sneaky WOD - figured it couldn't be too bad going in? I've done 200 kettle bell swings and I've done 180 pushups so been there done that. The combination of the two turned out to be toxic!
50-40-30-20-10 reps of
KB Swings at 24k
I got thru the first set of KB swings unbroken and the rest looked like 20/20-15/15-11/9 and 10 to finish them off. Grip started to suffer in round 3 big time but sucked it up and kept going - focused on pulling the kettle bell down on each swing.
The pushups were a lost cause - didn't realize kettle bells took so much out of the chest! Pure agony - started with sets of 5 but quickly degraded to 3 then 2 then single reps as I struggled thru each round.
Finished 18:29 - glad that one is over! :)
