WOD 25th April Easter Monday….nothing better to do

26 Apr

then be in the gym!?!?!?

After a busy weekend in Cambridge visiting relatives I spent the day on the sofa.

Only come 5pm I had to peel myself off the sofa to get down to the gym for evening classes!

I had a few at 5.30 and then none at 6.30 and a few at 7.30.

Nothing better to do then hit the gym………………….I needed something to peel me off the sofa so I am not complaining really!

Having had a lazy day I asked my 5.30 lot if I could join in. With no beginners in the class I felt able to do a few sets.

I had decided for today to program a whole strength day. I had to stick to the squats as it was part of the main programming but as for the format I played around with that.

We still worked up with 3 warm up sets of 5 but our output was working toward working sets of 90%.

As we were working close to the mark we needed a full 3 minute min rest between sets and defiantly a spotter!

Some top marks for team work. What a great bunch of people I work with!

Although it’s my job to whoop you lot on a big thanks lads for the spot and encouragement when it got to my turn.

Keeping with the strength theme next up was push jerks.

Warm up sets with the bar to make sure technique was cool then 2 sets adding some weight before working on2x4 working sets at  90%.

Since the jerk has come up in WOD’s recently it made sense to practise some heavy jerks. Besides it always clicks more with heavy weight.

I finished strength by doing 2×4 push press. No need to warm up just needed to adjust the weight accordingly.

On such a lazy day it was quite nice to have a session that didn’t require running around like mad-men.

Well Done crew good job from all!
