Dec 5 WOD: Goats + Wendler

Strength: Dead lifts

Today's the start of deload week. Coach Jordan said I could try getting my 1RM for the lifts when I'm done deloading. I know for sure that my shoulder press has improved, but I'm not sure about my dead lifts and back squats.

Warm up: 5 x 50

40% x 5 = 5 x 70
50% x 5 = 5 x 85
60% x 5+ = 10 x 105


It was all body weight exercises today. I'm so glad they didn't make us do wall balls or burpees, though. The workout was 12 minutes long, and it was EMOM of:

- 20 double unders
- Max reps push ups

My 2 goats! I did the workout as prescribed, and at the beginning I had trouble getting even one DU. There were around 3 or 4 rounds that I wasn't able to finish, which meant I wasn't able to do push ups, but around half-time I started to get it. My score at the end of the 12 minutes: 68 push ups. So happy I stuck with doing full push ups and I could put a little "Rx" beside my name on the board.


  1. Is Coach Jordan your personal trainer?

    1. Hey, Russ! :) He's the coach for the class I attend. There aren't any personal trainers at my gym because the classes are small so the coach is able to pay attention to each class member.
