I dragged myself to the box around 630pm.

I slept 7 hours, worked 10 hours and was not interested in lifting.

I knew it was my last chance before the meet on Saturday, so I did what had to be done.

Snatch Balance
1X3 @ 15#, 35#, 45#, 55#
1X1 @ 65#

Snatch
1X1 @ 65#, 75#, 85#, 95#, 100#, 105# (f), 105#, 110#

Full snatches are feeling better. Mr days I am still dropping under the bar a tad too slow, so will work on that.

Clean
1x1 @ 110#, 125#, 135#, 145#, 155#

Rest Day tomorrow. Thank goodness!

I felt like throwing up.

I did not throw up. Score.

I am not used to woding so late. I usually Wod on an empty stomach so today was not fun.

TFW you slept for twelve hours, woke up and still felt tired.

Rest Day.

Work will be hectic.

I am at weight, 68kg, so I’m glad I don’t have to worry about that. I just need to maintain until Saturdays weigh.

Snatches
I had two bars set up. Not really, I just used Mr’s bar. Ha!

Anyways. He had a 45# bar with plates and I had a 15# bar with plates.

I warmed up with singles at 15#, 35#, 45#, 55# and 65# on the 15# bar.

Then I did one snatch with his bar and then one with mine. Since the weight distribution is different it forced me to focus on technique. His bar has the lower weight. If I missed either lifts, I had to do the set over. I ended up attempting 65/75 six times and five times for 75/85 and 95/105.

4X1 @ 65# and 75#
4X1 @ 75# and 85#
4X1 @ 95# and 105#

The video shows misses at 65# on the 15# bar; 65# on the 45# bar; and 85# on the 15# bar. The last snatch was 105# and I fought hard to save it. Hence the laughter.

OHS (pause)
1X3 @ 45#
1X3 @ 65#
1X3 @ 95#
1X3 @ 115# (video - failed third)

OHS
1X2 @ 135#
1X1 @ 140# (f)
1X1 @ 140# (video)

"Only do one. Don’t pause at the bottom" he said. I obviously do not listen. #OHS at 135. @crossfitsiege

Monday 9/15/14

3 Snatch PP + 3 OHS (from floor)
15#, 35#, 45#, 65#, 75#, 85#, 95#

I really wish we had jerk boxes. I had to clean the bar each time and it was tiring.

BTNJ
3 @ 45#
3 @ 65#
3 @ 85#
3X1 @ 115#

I am right handed however my left foot dominates in Jerks. Today I forced my right foot forward to see how it felt. Each set felt great, however one set of the 115# I forget and habit kicked in and before I knew it, my left foot was in front. Muscle memory. I have no plans to change what comes naturally, I just wanted to see how it felt.

Snatch Balance
3 X 5 @ 15#
3 X 5 @ 25#

Zoom Whole Foods 9/14/14
Spent $6.01. Got back $9.50.
The Beyond Meat is on sale at Whole Foods for $3.99, down from $5.49. I used $1 off manufacturer’s coupon and $1 off Whole Foods coupon to pay $1.99 a bag. There is $1 rebate in Ibotta and BerryCart so each bag will give me $2 back.
The Runa was priced at $2. I thought I picked up the flavors that were on sale for $1.50, but I was wrong. I used $1 off Whole Foods coupon to pay $1 a bottle. There is $1 rebate in Ibotta and Shopmium. There is also $0.75 rebate in BerryCart. So each bottle gave me $2.75 back.
The clif bar was $0.99 and I used $0.50 off manufacturers coupon and $0.50 Whole Foods coupon. I also brought my own bags, so I saved an additional $0.20 (I did two separate transactions).
Ibotta, Shopmium and BerryCart are some of the apps I use that give cash back on purchases for specific items.

Decisions.
Me: Should I sign up [for the Soul Open] as a 69 or 63?
Mr: If you sign up as 69, but weigh in at 63, can you compete at 63?
Me: Yes.
Mr: Then do that then.
Me: My problem is, if I sign up as 69, I have no "reason" to drop to 63.
Mr: Well, you know yourself. Sign up as 63.

Nice drop getting under the bar in your jerk. Cleans look smooth


¬†Thanks! I spent the last two months focusing on my jerks and I am happy with the progress. After 55 and 57, I told her “61”. Then I thought about it and decided to push it. When I told her “change to 65” she said “THANK YOU! Your jerks are solid.” which I took to meant she thought I was shortchanging myself on the weight. gettingtorx
