Sans-Squats

Busy weekend and didn’t get a workout in.  Started back up today.

I am really tired.  Lots of stuff outside of Craic going on in my life and hard to focus in class today.  Class was poppin’ full of people.  Dizzle was coaching.  The workout was:

A) work to a heavy single Clean + Jerk
B) Take 80% of A and do 5×2
+
5 RFT – 12min cap
Run 200m
10 Power Clean + Jerk

I, obviously, didn’t do the jerk.  For part A: 95, 115, 125, 135f, 135f, 135.  I couldn’t squat clean to save my life.  I’m not sure where the mental block was with me.  There seemed to be some fear of squatting.  The 135 that I did get was a really messy power clean.  I don’t know what my problem was today.  I just couldn’t focus and get out of my own way.  Was awesome to see Callahan PR this morning with a 140# clean and jerk. I then dropped to 110# for part B.

The RX weight for the 5 RFT was 65# so I stuck with that.  Ankle is still a bit wonky so I did 10 cals on the AD.  Jarrod had initially suggested 15 cals, but after the first round, I knew I wouldn’t be able to maintain that and finish under the cap.  It was hot as hell today and I was struggling.  I managed to finish in 10:15.  Went the first 2 rounds UB for the cleans and 3rd and 4th round did it in two sets of 5.  Last round I went UB.  I was toast at the end of this workout.  Blargh.

I wish I could have squat cleaned today.  Not sure what was going on.  Ending on a positive note, here’s an amazeballs video of Kendrick Farris killing it at the 2013 World University Games.
