Come on -- I know you want to watch it again.
Having been knocked down with a fever and sore throat for a solid week, I was looking forward to getting back in the gym on Friday. We practiced weighted ring dips before the metcon was announced:
- 15 toes to bar
- 15 hang power cleans (115lbs / 85lbs)
- 15 box jumps (20")
- 12 toes to bar
- 12 hang power cleans (115lbs / 85lbs)
- 12 box jumps (20")
- 9 toes to bar
- 9 hang power cleans (115lbs / 85lbs)
- 9 box jumps (20")
- 6 toes to bar
- 6 hang power cleans (115lbs / 85lbs)
- 6 box jumps (20")
- 3 toes to bar
- 3 hang power cleans (115lbs / 85lbs)
- 3 box jumps (20")
This morning, I returned to the gym feeling like myself for the first time in ten days. (My voice still sounds terrible, but I feel fine.) Good thing, too, because I love me some kettlebell snatches. We practiced until my arms felt like they were going to pop off, and then:
- 21 power cleans (135lbs / 95lbs)
- 21 ring dips
- 15 power cleans (135lbs / 95lbs)
- 15 ring dips
- 9 power cleans (135lbs / 95lbs)
- 9 ring dips
(Clearly, my math skills are nonexistent. On Friday, I blanched at the thought of doing 45 reps of 115-pound cleans, and opted for 85 pounds instead. But today, I decided that 45 reps of 135-pound cleans sounded just fine and dandy. I'm an idiot.)
In the second round, I started no-repping. Twice, I failed to get my elbows down and around the bar fast enough, and ended up splashing the bar. Strange sounds started coming out of my throat.
On the plus side? All the ring dip practice we've been doing paid off -- I got through those fairly quickly.
Result: 10:28 as RXed.
