Wednesday's Workout

Strength Skill:

Zercher Squats

I tried for a new PR today, but ended up dumping the bar. Still, I matched last week's weight, and was able to crank out more reps today, so I'm not too bummed out.



7 rounds for time:
  • 7 barbell snatches
  • 7 plyo box jumps
Result: 8:05

My legs and shoulders are still creaky and sore from Monday, so I dialed down the weight on the bar for my snatches (I used 65 pounds instead of 95) and scaled down the height of the box (24 inches instead of 30). It was a fun workout, but completing 49 snatches and 49 box jumps wasn't easy; my transition times (from bar to box and from box to bar) kept getting longer as I got increasingly winded.
