Feeling pretty good today - Monday off - Tuesday CrossFit total - minimal aches and pains.
Started with the Jerk 3 - 3 - 3+ at 70% - 80% - 90% of single rep max
My single rep max is currently 95k but I know I've got more than that - just haven't taken the opportunity to go after it recently. So I upped the loads just a bit and rounded up the weight - didn't say anything to Zach because I knew it would stress him out. He might even make me do burpees! :)
70k - 80k - 90k x 3
I was planning on repping out 5 at 90k but catching that weight on my chest was brutal and on the 3rd rep, I lost my balance bringing it down out of the press and dropped it to the floor. Regardless, 90k wasn't too bad - I figure I have a 105/110 jerk easy! I suspect we'll see a max effort in the very near future.
SDHP @ 50k
Box Jumps 24"
I was a little worried about the pushups since they've been my achilles heel of late but the WOD went well. I was able to rep out all the movements more or less unbroken. I lost my rythm a couple of times on the sumos and box jumps but never really stopped moving.
Finished 5:53 - Pete finished later in the day at 4:55. Thought I might have had him on this one - no such luck. I expect maybe he transitioned between movements faster - that could have made the difference. I usually spent a few extra seconds setting up on the sumos. I'll be curious to see how Matt finished.
