A. Take 10-15 min to find your 1 rep max strict press.
B. It’s a b-day for coach Jay today, and to celebrate, a little met-con (metabolic conditioning) fun.
J air squats
J gym lengths suicide runs
J= Jay’s age. If you don’t know what that is… you’ll just have to wait and see. If you do know, don’t spoil it for the rest. And no, he’s not 22, sorry.
Our skipping clinic is today at 12:30 pm and runs for an hour, in case you haven’t seen my other dozen reminders.
Thanks for the WOD and everyone that came out to play on my birthday.
A) 130 which is a 5# PR
B) 6:48 still feeling the old from a few weeks go, but ot my mind right and ore into it.
Also managed to finally get a 1 hand handstand (using the wall) and holding a handstnd in the middle of he gym. It may have only been a few seconds but you have to start somewhere.
Happy birthday Jay! Great work! I’m very sorry I missed this one, but I’ll make it up next week. Been wanting to test my strict press for a while now…
A. 122.5# for the strict press, which is a 2.5# PR. This continues to be a weakness, but it’s coming along slowly. The lift was ridiculously slow, but at no point did it stop moving, so I didn’t give up on it.
B. 7:09. This was a nice little burner. The suicides got a little tiresome with all the turning, but distance-wise it actually wasn’t that far.
I hope the rest of your birthday was enjoyable, Jay! Thanks for the informative skipping clinic. It’s always good to take some time and really deconstruct a skill, and build it back up again better.
happy belated birthday JAY!
