I was having a very bad day yesterday. It was a super stressful day at work and I was eating horribly. I also felt a little bit like I was starting to get ill.. low energy, chills, stuffy nose. I thought about not going to the box, but since I only have a few days left before I leave for a month I convinced myself to go anyway. And as always, that was a good decision :).
I signed up for the barbell class at 7:15 and decided to not join the WOD at 6:15 as I really needed to get my squats in for the Wendler schedule.
3 x 45.4kg / 100 lbs
3 x 49.9kg / 110 lbs
6 x 56.7kg / 125 lbs
(I decided to start reverting everything to kg’s. These lbs weights.. even though we use them at the box, really don’t mean anything to me.)
After that I did two tabata’s (8 rounds of 20 sec work and 10 sec rest). One with kettlebell swings and one with kettlebell lunges. Both with a 16kg kettlebell. I did 7 swings each round and 6 lunges each round. (Didn’t push myself too hard.)
I wanted to check my form when doing power cleans so filmed a few practice reps. (Did 2 x 3 reps.) But somehow I managed to film it upside down lol. There were kids running around with a football too. Very distracting! (Not to mention not very safe..) I will try and fix the video and upload it later.
I think I want to try and add power cleans to my strength schedule. Would be nice to train with heavier weights on that movement. But will have to see how much strength training I can do in the next month anyway as I’m not sure the box in Lelystad has open box hours.. So might wait until I’m back in Spain to add that in.
After my own training I joined in on the barbell class (will really miss this class!!).
So this time we practiced the split jerk. Started with some footwork and timing on when to “split”. After that we did 7 sets of 1 power clean, 2 shrugs, 1 split jerk and 1 split jerk from bar on back. I did them with 55 lbs (24.9kg).
For strength we did hand stand push ups. I used a 25 lbs (11.3kg) plate and one abmat and did 3 sets of 5 hand stand push ups.
Nice class again! I will miss these technical classes!!!
