WOD: December 5th
You can always use MORE Power!
Today’s focus was on hip extension and power generation. Because it really is all in the hips.
To open up we worked Overhead Squats, and double unders. Everyone got showed considerable improvement in their double unders so good job. The Overhead Squats are still as much fun as they normally are (read: not fun at all.) But there is considerably more depth developing.
Then, the skillz:
Work on your High Pull. Load up close to max clean weight and extend. EXTEND! Fun Factor: Low but effective.
To round it all off:
WOD: For time
I thought I hadn’t done too badly with my time of 9:37 but I was annihaliated by the class. Damn my long and ineffecient levers!
We tried to round everything off with some Front Levers, but considering the amount of pull ups and grip frying kettlebell swings done earlier, it was more along the lines of a set of singlular front levers.
“Speed Demon”: To Naim, who can do push ups and pull ups about twice as fast as I can.
“Monster Weight”: To Ruairi, for lifting a lot of weight on his high pulls.
“What?! 9000!” To Simon, for keeping up his power output during the entire session.
Extra: My test Sunday was run by Chris Spealler.
