“Don’t do what you want. Do what you don’t want. Do what you’re trained not to want. Do the things that scare you the most.” ― Chuck Palahniuk
Pausing Front Squats – 5 x 3
*Hold for 3 seconds at the bottom of 1st rep
*Rest 60 seconds between sets
Completed: at 85lbs., 95lbs., 100lbs., 105lbs., 110lbs. Working with most awesome partner Lynn, pushing and cheering each other to the very last rep.
50 Thrusters (45)
Completed: in 11:40. Thrusters at 35lbs. Sprinted through the row, and then proceeded to get swallowed up by the Thrusters. Regardless, here is an instance where I allowed myself to get scared away by the fear of not being able to complete the movement, the 50 thrusters, and so went with a lighter weight. Should have gone RX at 45lbs. Would have been tough, yes, but would have been able to complete it, no question. You are always more capable than you think.
