Split Annie

The other day I did a 1rep max Split Jerk, Here it is!!

I am pleased that I was able to get 225# over my head. Now all I need to do is get that weight from the floor to my shoulders and we are in business!!

I did Annie tonight not a PR, 602, my PR was 549. I missed in every set of the DU, I have stuffed up sinuses and bouncing up and down then swinging my head around did a number to my head.

Take it or leave it

2026 my new PR for the Filthy Fifty. Could it have been sub 20, you bet it could. The burpees were terrible i had at LEAST 26secs in break time just on the burpees. I love this WOD but at the same time am frustrated with it. It seems so easy but it just breaks you down. I beat myself up alot with this one. What is 26secs actually 27 to make it an official sub 20. That many secs is nothing but then again every thing. I am glad for my PR but peeved about my lack of drive in the burpees. Just gotta keep get the time lower and lower each time this one comes around.

Health and Longevity

New habit to get into...Keep this blog up to date.
I am coming to realize that to keep me going and healthy I need to listen to my body and tonight was one of those nights. The WOD
25KBS 2pood

I went through 2 rounds and stopped. This is only the 2nd WOD that I have stopped on and tonight was not because I could not do it but to save my back. If you can remember I have tweaked my back 3times and I do not want to do it again. I have a home made GHD machine, it moves and is not sturdy. So high rep, high velocity are a no go. So I was taking my time when the right side of the box shifted forward without the left and put me into a sideways GHD. I felt it in my back in the same place as before. I straightened it out and finished the reps and into the KBS when I started to realize 2 more rounds of this would not be good. I decided to stop after 2 rounds with a time of 1554. Am I upset or frustrated that I stopped? Not in the least. I want to walk normal tomorrow and I definitely want to kill "Filthy Fifty" on Friday. I am realizing that my body cannot do what I could 5-6 years ago and I am making some good gains with a Snatch PR of 160# and a Clean and Jerk of 200# I feel I am getting smarter with listening to my body. Now I do not intend to make a habit out of this. 2 out of the many I have done in the last 2years I think is good.

Again Faster WOD #16

It is hard to tell in the video but all pull-ups were chest to bar.
Towards the end my butt started to pop up with the push-ups, not sure on the legitimacy of those if they were in competition.
I feel I did great with the pistols, definitely hard WOD but I feel I did good.
8rounds + 2 reps for a total of 122 reps

Modal Domains

This is a little longer workout today than usual. Did it on purpose.
50-KBS @2pood
20-30# DB HPC

My runs, both of them, were actually really good, first one was right at 3min and the second around 300-320. The 2pood is getting better and my shoulders were tight and sore on the last 800. Good WOD

I am stoked about this go around with "Fight Gone Bad" A huge PR, last attempt was 266 and this attempt 315.
Round 1
Round 2
Round 3

I was gunning for 100 or higher on each round. My average was good but still want to be in the hundreds each round. Just need to push more. I was trying to pace this time around and now that I know the numbers to pace with I can push harder for a higher score

Let lift something heavy

10 DL @ 185#
100M suicide run (in 25M increments)

I was excited that I used 185 and that all 3 rounds were unbroken, in hindsight should have gone for 200#. The run was all mental total distance ran on each run was 500M almost a mile. Good WOD just should have used heavier weight. I am getting there though
