The gym schedule has changed again for the fall and will probably remain this way until we transition to the new gym (we are moving locations late November/early December down the road to an even bigger place!). So this means Powerlifting is Monday and Wednesday from 6:30-8pm and classes start on the half hour vs the hour in the evenings. It sort of cramps my style a little since the 6:30pm class is the Rookie class (the class time I would most want to go to) and there is no 7:30pm class, just an 8pm class, but oh well.
Tonight I went to the 5:30pm class before Powerlifting and that wasn’t too hard to get to. The WOD was:
Clean & Jerk
1-1-1 <– PR at 147#!!
Then For time:
7000 / 5000# – Ground to Overhead
Choose your Load from the following:
7K = 135 x 52 reps / 95 x 74 reps / or 75 x 94 reps
5K = 85 x 59 reps / 65 x 77 reps / 55 x 91 reps <– Did 85# x 59 reps
First was the Clean and Jerk work. I got to 140# and knew I could clean that per Saturday’s class. Nailed it! Went for 147# and got that too! I grabbed 3 more pounds for an even 150# and couldn’t get my brain to mentally wrap itself around squat cleaning it! I had the height and I have cleaned that weight before but I just couldn’t get it last night. I was still happy with a 147# C&J! A PR from the floor for sure!!
Then I decided to do 85# for 59 reps for the 5k ground to overhead WOD. I also decided to alternate between 5 reps of snatch and 5 reps of clean and jerk to complete the volume. It paid off going a little slower because I managed to still kick some tail and finish in 7:45! I had hoped to finish in 6min since I was around the 3 min mark half way but I started to have to break up my sets a little bit.
After the WOD it was back squat and bench time! We split up into smaller groups this time and had 3 bars to work on. I think it worked better because I actually felt like we finished squatting at a decent time. I ramped to 105Kg and it felt kind of easy. Next week I want to do 110Kg.
With bench I wasn’t as organized with rep scheme but I tried to do the same format as I do for squat. I ended up hitting 70Kg for a paused single!!! before calling it a night. It’s been a while since I hit 70Kg so it felt good to know I can still hit that and maybe finally more soon! I want to be able to bench my body weight! (I also want to one day clean my body weight…soon grasshopper, soon)
That was about it for the night. 🙂
