  1. Competitors, if you’re training today then use light loads. No PRs. Maybe 85-90% 1RM just to keep it interesting. And I definitely want to see double unders going on during your rest intervals. You can’t improve your work capacity before Saturday, but you can improve neuromuscular coordination. Try knocking out 20 DUs between every set.

  2. I was encouraged that I was finally able to squat with weight since injuring my back. I didn’t go above about 80% of mr 1RM. On my last back squat, after I took the bar from the rack, something didn’t seem right so for once exercising some good judgement I reracked the weight and called it a day.

  3. OHS 165# (PR) FS 185# (PR) BS 215#. Just PRed on BS a few weeks ago. Felt really strong today. Oh yea, double unders 93 (PR). Good day at CFI!!

  4. I did 4 rounds + 33 reps of the open WOD today. I’m glad I got a chance to make peace with the pain before Saturday. I learned that my shoulders held out better when I did clean and jerk instead of power snatch. I think my plan is to do C&J the entire time on Saturday so that I can link more DUs.

  5. I really enjoyed this WOD mainly because I felt like the movements were finally clicking really well and PR’d on all three movements by a significant amount. Also, I didn’t fail, so hopefully I left some room for next time also.

    Thanks Jeff and Christina for really helping me to nail some of the mechanics today that I’ve been struggling with.
