Today marks the end of the week and the 5th day in a row I’ve made it into the box for a workout. Considering how Monday went, I won’t complain about the rest of the week. I often skip Fridays, but since we’ll be traveling this weekend I wanted to make sure to get my max time when I could. 🙂
So today was 2018 Team Series Event 7. Coach Drea had myself, Maria, Todd & Melissa, KB, and Dave, and we started with a little warm-up:
- 2 rounds
- 500m row
- 10 single-leg deadlifts
- 10 banded good mornings
- 10 banded pull-aparts
- 10 PVC slow and steady push jerk progressions
- and something else I’m missing, but it’s fine. 🙂
With that out of the way, we did a good mix of PVC and then empty bar practice through the three movements of the workout…
- Hang Clean
- Split or Push Jerk
Then we added some weight and got moving for the 10 minute workout.
- 10 minutes to determine the 1 rep max for the complex
- deadlift / hang clean / hang clean & jerk
Somehow I knew today wasn’t going to be as heavy as I wanted, but I was still happy with just doing some strength for a change… My PRs are 335/345# deadlift and 185/205# clean & jerk. I didn’t get close to that today.
My warm-ups were fine: 95#, 115#, 135#. And then I added more weight, trying to go every 2 minutes for the 10 minutes we had.
- 165# (fail on jerk)
- 165# (fail on clean)
It was interesting how this one went. I got a little wrapped up in the weight at 165# but decided to drop weight and try lower to see what happened. That seemed to be a good approach. 🙂
Great work 8:30 class and thanks Drea!
