Friday's Workout

Gah -- 115-pound push-presses are on the menu for the Open WOD 12.3 at CrossFit Palo Alto tomorrow, along with a crapload of box jumps and toes-to-bar. That's a purdy heavy weight for me. I have a feeling that those eighteen minutes are going to be a punch in the face.

Good thing we had a chance to practice today.

Strength Skill:
  • Push-Presses (5-5-3-3-3)
I paired up with the Terminator, who has a bum shoulder, and therefore at less than full cyborg strength. We did the presses from a rack, and finished with 115 pounds on our final set. Tomorrow, we have to do 'em from the floor. Twelve at a time. Between box jumps and toes-to-bar. For eighteen minutes straight.

Again: Gah. Guess who's going to be doing some jerks tomorrow?


At least we had a nice barn-burner of a metcon today.

2 rounds for time:
  • 40 double-unders
  • 30 kettlebell transfers (24kg / 16kg)
  • 20 Abmat sit-ups
  • 10 ring rows
I tripped up a few times with the jump rope, but otherwise, this one blazed by.

Result: 5:04 as RXed.
