A. Take 15 minutes to find your 1 rep max thruster.
B. For time, 4 rounds of:
25 wall balls
C. 100 GHD hip extensions. Partition as needed.
**Just a note of caution/common sense regarding the squat challenge — if you have existing issues (knee/hip/whatever), ease into this. Fixing a squat can do a lot of things, but it won’t fix everything.
***Tank tops – We haven’t had a lot of agreement thus far, so I’ll list off some other options people have suggested. Incidentally, the initial style was suggested because another gym had some shirts made in that style, not because of any considerations of material or technical characteristics of the shirt. We may end up just having people choose their own shirt and then have them printed. If anyone currently has any shirts they’d like to suggest or bring in as a demo, feel free.
Here are the other styles suggested so far: Bella lightweight flowy tank
Bella triblend racerbank tank. Keep in mind that the initial cost of the unprinted Bella shirts will be less than quoted on the website.
Reebok CrossFit bonded racer tank – A style like this may be difficult to source cheaply. There may be other brands out there that are more reasonably priced.
A. Thruster 120lb
B. Rx’d in 16:41, Wall Balls done in sets of 5 (a nemesis)
Fun morning! Jackie got her first double-under. Hillary is so strong. 🙂
thrusters PR’d!!! #145 …im as strong as Hillary!!!
I can do double unders!!! I can skip!! I can skip!!! this is huge!!!
all that scapular stabilization is paying off!!!!
I wish there was a like button here…
I love your excitement Trevor, nice work!
A) 145#. Didn’t feel bad but failed at 150#.
B) 20 something. Double unders felt good after battling with consistency for months. T2B remain a challenge. I still don’t have the last strength to string these together. One day…..
C) 55 reps with 25# plate, 45 reps no wt.
Thanks for all the encouragement from the noon people.
It’s been a long time since I’ve been able to work out in a structured weekday class… thanks, Robin!
A. 160# – 5# PR. Gotta stay at least a little bit ahead of Hillary. I’ve asked her to maintain a respectful distance from my PRs, but she just doesn’t listen for some reason.
B. 14:32 Rx – My conditioning isn’t where it should be because I’ve been focusing more on strength recently, so I spent too much time resting.
Congrats to everyone on the PRs today!
Think I’ll have to do this one Friday, as I think my last thruster 1RM was years ago. Took an unscheduled perfectly lazy rest day. It was awesome.
I haven’t posted on here in a loooonnng time. But even though I’m prego I am still surprising myself at my weights and times. Here is my accomplishment today:
A: 125# I haven’t done a 1RM before. It was a challenge but mostly cuz fatigue set in and my body was done.
B: 11:11 I think was my time. I did singles and knee raises
C: couldn’t get around to it
Congrats to everyone’s hard work today!
A. 75#, a PR toooooo!!
B. 24:57, WOWSERS!! This was a doooosy. DU’s were not pretty at all, they are so frustrating!! Wall ball was 14# – thanks to Robin 🙂 Really didn’t want it, hehe, but ended up being better than I thought. And did leg lifts, instead of T2B.
C. Had to run out early, will do later this week.
Was a great morning!!
A) 190 which is a 15#PR for me…plus the first time I put that much weight over my head…maybe I’m finally getting some pressing strength.
B) 12:18 RX’d T2B’s were all over the place and got in the way of my brain.
C) missed it as I needed a few minutes to recoup before tonight on-ramp
A) 80# – no PR, but happy my form was improving as I worked through this piece
B) 16:36 – Mostly single skips as the double unders weren’t consistent enough. Although I am able to do wallballs with a 14# ball I really struggle with this movement, so I chose to be conservative and use a 10# ball for this volume – I was able to keep my form a bit better and I didn’t feel utterly defeated by them. Full T2B – yay!
