What a tough night! OMG! I am pretty sure my coach is trying to kill me and tonight was just 1 example of it! I decided to do the regular WOD before Powerlifting and it wasn’t any easier/better!
4×4 – ¼ Speed (3 counts down, hold 1 count, and up ~1 count) <–60Kg
15 min AMRAP
10 Push Press (95/65)
10 OHS (95/65)
In the middle of the WOD my wrists started to REALLY ache so I ended up spending way too much time fiddling with my wrist wraps. I did manage to finish with 2 reps shy of 5 rounds, 4 +28. SO CLOSE to 5 rounds! And I was NOT moving quickly at all! OHS and burpees are my SLOW gear.
After the WOD I really had 0 desire to back squat or lift heavy but I pushed myself. It was one of our tougher classes, too:
Ramp to 70% (2×6), 75% (2×4), 80% (2×4)
I got to 90Kg and it was HARD! I realized afterwards when I get to 90Kg usually I’m only doing 2 reps not 4 so it was good that I was able to push out 4 reps but definitely not what I would consider easy!
Ramp to 70% (2×9), 75% (2×6), 80% (2×3)
Definitely couldn’t hang for this. I couldn’t even complete the sets of 9 but I did go to failure with each set ending at 55Kg for 1 rep on my last set.
Do sets unbroken and increase load with each set.
This was challenging! We started at 60Kg and finished at 120Kg and I had to get my Powerlifting belt out for the last 3 reps! Without it, I couldn’t pick the bar up!
Needless to say I am sore today. I even dreamed about back squatting last night! ACK! But it was nice to have actually completed the full Powerlifting WOD since I’ve been lackluster about it since the Powerlifting meet.
