Wendler Cycle C Week 2 Bench Press and WOD 17 November, 2014

Third day in a row. I think I’m back on track!! :D Rich started programming Wendler into the normal program, which is great for me, because now I don’t have to do it next to the WOD’s, which saves me time and also it means that the WOD’s he programs next to it will probably match with the strength bit better than when I pick and choose which WOD/exercises I would do after.

Bench Press 5-3-1

5 x 70 lbs (31.8kg)
3 x 80 lbs (36.3kg)
7 x 90 lbs (40.8kg)

My rep goal was 9, but I’m quite happy with 7, keeping in mind that I haven’t done any strength workouts for almost a month.


For time: 21-15-9 reps of

  • Ring dips
  • Toes to bar

My workout:
I scaled the ring dips to jumping ring dips and I did knees to elbow instead of toes to bar. My time was 5 min 28 sec.


For time: 21-15-9 reps of

  • Row (calories)
  • Jump over rower burpees

My workout:
My time was 8 min and 57 seconds. And boy was that hard!! The jumps over the rower were the hardest part… but managed to keep on going :). I felt like I pushed my limits on this one and it felt good!!
