Howdy! Day 14 of Whole30 and still going strong. I’m trying to stay within macro limits as well. It’s easy on the weekdays because the day just zooms by, but when the weekend comes and we are left just hanging out, I tend to think about food too much and graze. Then I have to adjust my macros to make it all fit. Anyways, fit girl problems right?! Onto more important things, like PR-ing FGB!
Fight Gone Bad
- 3 Rounds, As Many Reps as Possible, 1 Minute at each station
- Wall Balls(20#/14#) to 10′ Target
- Sumo Deadlift High Pulls(75#/55#)
- Box Jumps 20″
- Push Pres(75#/55#)
- Calorie Row
- 1 Minute Rest
I wasn’t expecting this WOD today. With some back pain, I’m glad it wasn’t deadlifts or anything like that. For warm-up we practiced walking up and down the wall into a handstand, trying to get as vertical as possible. I had some trouble with coordination, but it definitely helped warm up the shoulders.
By the time we got ready for the WOD, I decided to start on Wall Balls. Why not right? Start with my nemesis and get it over with. I got 17 wall balls consecutively with good form on the first round. I ended up with 21, so that definitely put a smile on my face. Of course, I was gassed in the next round and only got 12 or 13. All the other stations felt good except for SDHP. I could feel the bar drifting away from me. Definitely due to exhaustion. Push presses felt light and fast. They burned, but I definitely tried to not put the bar down within that minute.
Take away from this WOD…Must learn how to keep good form while under extreme exhaustion. I don’t know how the elite’s do it, but they do it, so it can be done.
Score: 226 RX’d…12 reps more than last January.
I got to work and did some back squat reps, 2 sets of chin ups, and goblet squats. Back squats were 95#(5)-115#(5)-125#(3)-145#(2)-155#(1). I guess 155# is a new PR, since I’ve never done 1 rep max back squats. At least I know I’ll get that at the competition. I BETTER GET THAT!
