So it turns out this Wendler thing works. Because I checked my log and saw that what I could only do 5 reps of last month, I was able to do 7 reps of today.
65% x 5 = 5 x 80
75% x 5 = 5 x 95
85% x 5+ = 7 x 105
Assistance 1: Walking lunges (15 lb plate)
5 x 10
Assistance 2: Overhead squats
1 x 10 x 35
2 x 10 x 45
2 x 10 x 55
The heat was suffocating! I really felt those beads of sweat dripping off my nose in that last set. Summer has truly arrived.
I sucked at the WOD! We had to do 3 rounds of the following against a 3 minute running clock:
- 400m run
- Max reps wall balls
- Rest 3 minutes
That means you'll have to finish the run faster so you can do a lot of wall balls. I was able to finish the runs in 2 minutes or so, but I always had to take a breather before going at the wall balls. Hence, my very poor score: 35.
In other news, Open workout 13.2 will be announced tomorrow! I'm excited about it because I can't wait to see how my boxmates do, but at the same time I dread it because I know it's not going to be a walk in the park. Either way, there's no escaping 13.2.
|Um, actually, 13.1 crushed me. But whatever.|
One down, 4 to go!
