5/6/14 WOD, Photo Shoot, and Coach Shadowing

Last night was fun! First, I did a little photo shoot with my Dad at the gym because, yes, I am that nerdy and I embrace it. I wanted to get a cool photo for my Coach’s bio on the webpage and I didn’t really feel like I had one. My Dad, who loves photography, agreed to practice his skills with me at the gym and here are just a few shots that I liked:

This was so fun to do! It was hilarious trying to get the 50# dumbbell into position and it was hilarious getting these shots! I’m not sure which I like the best!

After that craziness was the WOD:

Overhead Squat
7 (4-4) 2(2-2) 1-1-1-1

~ Then

On the Minute – 6 minutes
6 Alternating pistols <– red box
Max Rep: Hanging Power Snatch (115/ 75) <– Rx

I haven’t done heavy OHS in SO LONG! I know I have 115# recorded on here but I honestly don’t know when that was from. I just decided to go light and make sure my technique was solid and if I had time (which I didn’t) see how heavy I could go. Unfortunately I only had time to get to 82#. But it was a SOLID and easy 82#! So I know I’m no where near my 1RM 🙂 Next time I’ll go more aggressive with the ramps.

The mini WOD after was brutal! I misread the hanging snatch. I thought it was hanging cleans. 75# was no joke. And usually I use a red box AND a 45# plate on top for pistols but I didn’t have time to gather all of the equipment so I just grabbed a box and started. That was really challenging! much lower than with a 45# plate on top! But I did manage to get 17 HP Snatch over the 6 rounds.

My night ended with my first ever class as a Coach! (ok assistant coach is more like it) I got to help explain the OHS and then work with 3 guys as they ramped together. I also got to wrap up the mini WOD at the end and it was so much fun!! It was cool to realize I did learn a lot from my Level 1 Certification Course and I know how to communicate and help others with their fitness goals! I’m so excited to shadow again on Friday and hopefully start coaching on my own soon!
