Apologies for the late post.
A few weeks ago we had a “Glute Death” kind of day, to make up for it, today we had an “arm death” kind of day.
However, first things first: The 50 Burpee Challenge. It’s coming up (October 19th) and I know that everyone avoids Burpees like the plague, so we did a quick little practice session of 50 Burpees for time as a warm up.
50 Burpees for time (5 min cut off)
Once that was done, we moved on to part 1 of arm death, which was
Strict Press: 5-5-5-5+ at 77.5% of Working Max
followed almost immediately with
Clean & Jerk 3-3-3-3-3-3 at 75% 1RM Every 90 Sec
Unfortunately, just to top it off, we had a workout at the end.
Weighted Pull ups 24KG/Dead Hang
Heavy thrusters have a special place in my heart because I dislike them so much, and trying to get 60KG overhead is a strugle on a good day. However, by some strange miracle, I was able to throw out consistent thrusters as Rx’D and even managed to finish the workout before the cut off time. My elation was very quickly destroyed when I realized that my 20KG weighted pull ups were actually 4 KG short of Rx’D, because I hadn’t paid enough attention to the board.
I’ll just have to do it again.
Excellent job to everyone and I’ll see you all Sunday.
