The WOD came first today, and I did Wendler after the workout. On the menu: every minute on the minute (EMOM) for 10 minutes of:
- 3 muscle ups
- 5 box jumps (Rx: 18")
After that, there's a 3 minute rest, then tabata abs:
- Sit ups
- Russian twists (Rx: 14 lbs)
I did 6 kneeling muscle ups instead, and used an 18" box. For the Russian twists, I used a 15 lb plate.
My scores: 10/7/8.
Strength: Back squats
So Coach Jordan shared a back squatting tip with me today because I told him I sometimes have trouble coming up from the squat (or, as I learned it's called, "getting out of the hole") when doing heavier weights. He told me to use the momentum coming down to create a little bounce when I get to the bottom... and it worked!
Warm up: 3 x 45; 3 x 65
65% x 5 = 5 x 75
75% x 5 = 5 x 90
85% x 5+ = 6 x 100
I just love the feeling of finishing a challenging strength workout!
