Today' s WOD:
Overhead squat 5-5-3-3-1-1-1
65-75-80-85-90-95-failed on 100
AMRAP in 10:00 of:
5 squat cleans 65#
I got 6 rounds. Had to fly on that last set of burpees! I was hoping for 5 rounds, so I was very happy with 6. Kind of questioned whether I should have gone with 75#, but that probably would have slowed me down a lot. I don't know, I think it was the right call to go lighter.
The overhead squats were a little disappointing. I got 95# easy but just couldn't get the 100# overhead. If I could have gotten it up there, I know I would have had no trouble squatting it. Not sure if it's a mental block or a strength issue, but I find jerking from behind the head very difficult. The most I've jerked in the normal, split-jerk from the rack fashion is 110 (did that once) so I guess I shouldn't be surprised that 100# is tough from a weird position.
Blogging may be sparse over the next week, as I'll be on vacation. Need to recharge!
