Conversation of the morning.
Coach Dizzle: Yo, Sweeney – have you done a muscle-up yet?
Coach Dizzle: Why not?
Sweeney: Because I have no coaching.
(awww, snap, son!)
I interrupt this post for a short public service, non-Crossfit announcement / rant. Ladies. If you’re gonna wear heels – learn how to walk in them. They’re supposed to make you look sexier, not like a duck or a cowboy. I mean, seriously. <eom>
Today’s workout was straight forward:
A1.5×10 Shoulder Press
A2. 5×10 Wide Grip Ring Rows
14 Double Unders
I did 45, 50, 55, 55, 55 – the last two sets were ROUGH. Did the first four sets UB, but I barely got the 10th up on the 4th set. Had to break up the last set into 5-3-2 reps. On the bright side, I got to do some clean skill work. Ring rows were straight forward. #strictpressbehardyo
The AMRAP sucked ass. Wall balls weren’t bad, just trying to get into a rhythm with those. They were worse on the arms than the were on the legs after part A. And then the double unders. Initially was going to go for 14 of them – but ended up having to go for attempts as I couldn’t string together more than 3 to save my life. BLECH. While I did all the wallballs and RR UB, the double unders held me up big time. Only managed to get 4 rounds in.
Since I did the ring rows, I decided to do the remainder of my pull-up homework. Did 3×12 of barbell bi-cep curls at 35#. They were pretty damn heavy. Then I did the 3xME of blue band pull-ups with :04 negatives. The first two sets I managed to get two per set – but the last one, I just missed getting my chin over the bar.
