My workout:
So… my toes to bars are not great, but I didn’t think they would be this bad!! I struggled getting them… I kept having no reps by not getting to the bar with my toes.. So I think I spent the first 3 minutes on the first 15 ttb :s. The second round went a bit better, but 9 minutes is not a lot of time. In the end I didn’t even finish my second round and ended with 57 total reps. The snatches are quite heavy for met at this weight as well, so they slowed me down a bit too as had to do them in singles. After these 9 minutes we had to go straight into 15.1a and find the heaviest clean and jerk. I was quite happy as I did 115 lbs. My 1rm clean (power clean, I’m not comfortable doing squat cleans yet) is 120 lbs, so was pretty happy with that! It felt quite easy too. Wonder if I could have done more..

I filmed the whole workout, but my memory ran out so actually didn’t film anything but the first few toes to bar and then a whole bunch of failed reps :S. I asked my friend to video me when re-doing 115 lbs clean and jerk though. Which I managed to do again, but technique was not as nice as when I did it in the workout. I didn’t proper split jerk so didn’t get low enough and wasn’t able to fully extend my arms under the bar, so had to push it out. Which is a no rep in official weightlifting world. Luckily in CrossFit it counts.. but it’s just not pretty….

I wanted to redo this workout as I really felt I didn’t give it my all on the amrap.. and can do better. But unfortunately I didn’t have time to do it again before the deadline on Monday.
