Fact of the day: Did you know that Diana Ross was originally Diane Ross, but she felt that “Diana” sounded more glamorous?
So, today’s test was Diane. 21-15-9 Deadlifts and HSPU. We did this WoD on July 7th.
I wanted to do 135#, as this is what I did in that last workout. Last time it took me 5:19. I did the bench HSPU last time with a 12-9-6 rep scheme.
I tried a couple of reps at 135# and my form was off. I HATED dropping weight, but was working out with Cat and she suggested that I drop weight. I think that I annoyed Jarrod by asking him if I should go heavy (at 135#) vs. drop weight and work on form. The answer is, always work on form. I just wasn’t too happy about it. I decided that because I was dropping weight to 125#, then I would do 21-15-9 of the bench HSPU. I used two mats under my head.
I did the first set unbroken, but it was tough. When I got to 15, I did 10 and then 5. And did the last 9 unbroken. Jarrod and Cat were both coaching me to drop my butt at the bottom and I just couldn’t get my head around doing it consistently. Add that to the list of things to work on. Glad that I dropped the weight. Would have been terrible to bork my back again because I was too proud to drop the weight and instead do bad form.
Final Time: 4:01
