“Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.” ― Benjamin Franklin
3 Sets of the Following:
5 Bent Over Row (Supinated Grip)
* Heavy As Possible Without Sacrificing Technique
Max Effort Push-Ups
** Rest 60 Seconds Between Sets
Completed: Bent Over row at 85lbs., 95lbs., 105lbs.
5 Rounds for Total Repetitions of:
1 Minute to Complete: 5 Power Cleans (155/105)
– With the Remainder of the Minute Complete Max Effort Split Jerks
1 Minute Max Effort Burpees
Completed: at 85lbs. This was a creeper, much harder than it first appeared. I avg. 2 jerks per round, until the last round, when I completed a total of: 0. whomp. whomp. whomp. Was not channeling Hulk today. Perhaps Strongman pre-WOD was not a good idea. But today was a day I just wanted to get lost. Lost in the Crossfit workout, any workout. 2.5 hours plus spent at ACF is a good way to get lost. Still disjointed, head not on straight. More work to be done.
James did challenge me to start using the men’s bar: 45lbs.
It’s thicker, and, well, intimidating. It is the heaviest bar available in the triple wide. I’ve accepted the challenge and now will be reaching for the 45lbs. bar for WODs. Go Team.
