Going hard.

Hey guys! Sorry I didn't really finish off the week, I've been busy. I'm lazy but here's my WODs and results from last week!

Wednesday, October 10, 2012
Attended the Advanced 5 pm class

Warm Up: 1k run and Ero warm up

A: Power Clean & Push Jerk 5 x 3

B: 5 RFT
400m run
10 Clean & Jerks (115/85#)

I was struggling with the cleans... that's something I need to work on.

Attended the All Levels 6 pm class

Warm Up: 1k jog and Ero warm up

A: Front Squat 7 x 1

B: Weighted Pull Ups

C: 400m walking lunges

Looks easy right? HAYLLL NAH.
Results A/B: I wasn't really following the WOD, but Coach D had me up on the lifting platform (talk about stage fright, lol). We were trying to find my 1 rep max. I PRed at 195 lbs :) So I was working through the part B of the WOD while everyone else moved on to the pull ups. He told me to get a few sips of water and I made 3 attempts at a heavier weight, which I thought was 205 lbs at the time... but come to find out that Coach D got me at 220 lbs! I failed all 3 attempts but when he told me how much I was actually lifting on those 3 fails, I didn't feel so bad. A new goal to work for!

Results C: Finished at 19:03 ... TALK ABOUT PAIN. I'm STILL sore from it :(

I didn't WOD at Ero, but I did attend an all women's seminar at another local gym. It was a seminar/workshop on olympic weight lifting. It was very informative. I was able to learn about how to breathe properly, engage the entire torso and how to hold a proper form in order to prevent injury and to lift without problems.

This was my 6th time exercising in a week, and I must say... I was super dead. My hands were raw from the barbells and whew... I felt like I sucked. But improvements are always a good thing. Hopefully, I can utilize what I learned soon.

I'll post again with some pictures from this weekend!
