- Zercher Squats (5-5-5-3-3)
I got nowhere near my previous PR (of 225 pounds) today, but by the time I finished the last set, I was feeling solid, and think (hope?) I have a shot at besting my previous record by the end of this cycle.
- "CC Flyers" -- 3 rounds for time of:
- 400-meter run
- 12 overhead squats (95lbs / 65 lbs)
- 21 box jumps (20")
"You're going RXed, right?" Steph asked. "You just did twenty 95-pound overhead squats during Air Force WOD, and you won't be doing all the other lifts."
"Uh, no," I replied. "Too many reps today." There's no way I'm doing 63 overhead squats at 95 pounds, I thought to myself. I'm sure Steph thought I was nuts.
So I scaled down to 75 pounds. And did 21 overhead squats per round. And finished slower than a sloth on pot.
It wasn't until an hour after class -- after we'd returned from guzzling coffee and I cracked open my log book to enter in today's workout -- that I realized I'd misread the workout.
Perhaps I need to drink coffee BEFORE my workout instead.
