I just realized that this blog is turning out to be more of a workout diary.
Anyway, yesterday's WOD was simple:
- Squat cleans (35 lbs)
- Ring dips (modified)
The catch: we had to do it in sets of 20-18-16-14-12-10-8-6-4-2 in 25 minutes.
I guess it was good timing (?) that we had squat cleans because I'd just done Foundations Class last Sunday, so I was able to practice what I'd learned (??). Except that I always got berated by the coach for not having the correct form and not going low enough for the squat. But what can I do if my coordination sucks? I probably shouldn't overthink the steps to follow when executing a squat clean because I kinda do it in slow motion -- I count the steps in my head like when learning a dance step. And the coach says it has to be more explosive.
Now I know what my students must feel like when they have difficulty grasping a grammar point.
Please let me get better at this soon...
