Tracking progress

For the longest time, I've been using this blog to log my WODs and track my progress. But after some nosing around the net, I decided to get the myWOD app and it's sooo useful! All I have to do now after the WOD is open the app, retrieve the WOD feed from the CFMNL site, and enter my score.

I really haven't been working out as often as I used to. There are still a lot of things that I wish were different in the new box, but there's nothing I can do to change those so I just have to work around them and learn to tune out the bad.

June 30 WOD: Bergeron beep test

A. Strength: Front Squat

5 sets of 2 reps:

Set 1 - 65%
Set 2 - 75%
Set 3 - 85%
Set 4 - 90%
Set 5 - 90%

B. Metcon

Bergeron Beep Test

EMOM as long as possible:

7 thrusters (75/55#)

We'd already done this last February, and I remember it being super bad. I used the same scale I did last time (35# bar, jumping pull ups) and I did a wee bit better than last time.

My score: 100# (front squat); 2 + 4 burpees (35#; jumping pull ups)

Good to go

I got these rips from last Friday's cleans and I was pleasantly surprised to see these heal in less than two days. Bactroban is a life saver. Now they're good to go!

June 27 WOD: Clean all you can


Take 15 minutes to work up to a 1RM power clean

B. Metcon

In 12 minutes, complete:

As many ladders as possible from 1 to 5 reps of hang power clean (65-75%)

One ladder is:
1 HPC; drop the bar and rest as needed
2 HPC; drop the bar and rest as needed
... etc. up to 5 HPC

If the bar is dropped before you achieve the number of reps needed to complete the set, you start from zero.

I didn't get a PR on my power clean but it felt sooo good to clean heavy again.

My score: 115# (power clean); 5+3 (75#)

B. Metcon (20 minute cap)

30 overhead squats (95/65#)
30 toes to bar
20 power snatch
20 TTB

June 23 WOD: Row and thrusters

A. Strength and Skill

4 sets of:

5 front squats (65-80%)
Rest 10 seconds
5 high box jumps (rest 5 seconds between reps)
Rest 3 minutes

B. Metcon (20 minute cap)

1000m row/run, then:

3 rounds:

15 thrusters (95/65#)
30 double unders

It was raining out so we all rowed for the metcon. Coach Jordan wanted us to be done with the row in 5 minutes since we were doing the WOD in 2 heats. I finished in 4+ minutes but it took a couple of minutes before I could stand properly again. Another DNF under my belt!

My score: 85#/26" (FS and BJ); 1+22 DUs (55#)

June 13 WOD: Friday the 13th partner WOD


Strict press

Set 1 - 5 x 50%
Set 2 - 5 x 60%
Set 3 - 5 x 70%
Sets 4, 5, 6 - 3 x 85-90%
Set 7 - 10 x 55-65%

B. Metcon

Partner WOD
4 RFT:

10 thrusters (95/65#)
5 burpees
10 hang power snatch (95/65#)
5 burpees
10 front squats (95/65#)
5 burpees
10 shoulder to overhead (95/65#)
5 burpees

Partners alternate rounds to complete a total of 8 rounds.

I partnered with Tere for both the SWOD and the metcon. My wrist is still healing (or injured?) so I went light in the strength WOD and we only used 40# in the metcon. Tere was able to complete 3 rounds while I made it to 2 rounds and 7 thrusters.

Our score: 55# (heaviest strict press); 2 + 7 thrusters (40#)

June 11 WOD: Tumilson

A new Hero WOD!


8 RFT (30 min cap)

200m run
11 burpee dead lift (135/95#)

The burpee dead lift sounds weird, but you simply do a burpee and instead of jumping up, you do a dead lift. Glad the weight wasn't very heavy. My wrist has been bothering me since last week's The Chief though, so I did the burpees carefully.

My score: 29:35 Rx
