With one minute of rest between rotations:

Partner fight wod.

Partner A rows 500 meters while partner B does 3 95lb thrusters and max du for duration of the row.

Then switch.

5 rounds, decreasing distance by 100 meters a round. Scored as total double unders. Greater number between partners wins.

Fun noon class with Coach Jeremy. Learned a LOT about the snatch, which remains a mysterious and elusive movement.

WU: 53x3, 73x383x3x2, 73x3x3. Scaled back the weight because my form was falling to crap. As I recall I got up to 75 for 3 last time we did this, so I feel OK.3x3 snatch pulls @93. These felt great.3x10 GHD situps.3x10 white band strict pullups.

I like Dan's workout, except I'd modify it to be 10 thrusters and make them heavy--50/30 or something.

I like DMG's WOD, except I think the DUs should be 42-30-18.

First time taking the noon class. Nice to take with McGrath and Charlotte. Thanks for the progressions Jeremy. They helped clean some stuff up.

(44x3,49x3,49x3) 53x3x5 Starting to get the sense of this movement. I have an idea of how I want it to feel, just need to be patient I guess. Hard to find that balance between thinking it through and getting out of your own way.

snatch pull at 58x3x3

GHD 3x10. Liked the GHD as a means to help find that 2nd pull moment in the power snatch.

Alright, the captains back! happy to hear that your clavicle is continuous again.

I like the penalties Gabrus incorporated, the novelty and wrench from willy and the fun competition and scoring of Malcolm's workout. mine was no way near as original.

Snatches: progressions @33, 53x3, 63x3, 73x3, 83x3x5, snatch pulls 103x3x3, snatches 83x3.

Great to have Katie back! Even if she is a slave driver and makes me do extra sets of snatches.

Lots of fun snatch practice tonight.

After a good warmup did these across at 95. If I am staring intently at a single point I can avoid my awful head duck. If I look away even a little I doge with my head.

Did the snatch pulls at 145. Felt good. Did a couple of single snatches after at 115 which didn't have the head duck and felt light as could be. Nice. I think so long as I can stare intently at an object I may have finally kicked the dodge tick.

Fun with snatches, 115x5 then 125 across for the remaining 4. Still pretty wonky with my form, muscleing/willing the bar overhead. The heavy pulls helped a ton. Happy to have this in the rotation for this cycle, super fun movement.

So I didnt read my log before I went today and had a tough time.

I did warmup at 75, 95, then jumped to work at 105 which got a lot tougher quickly. Despite struggling a bit I went up to 110 and that was a failure.

I thought I had gotten up to 125 last cycle so I was basing it off that. However my last cycle max was at 110-115--so I was basically there today--duh.

Guess I have something to work on next week.

snatch pulls at 98x3x3

then went back to the snatch and got 83 which is a PR (i believe)

3x10 GHDs

handstand practice, feeling more comfortable doing free standing handstands

handstand push-up practice, a bunch of sets of 2 and 3 w/ 2 abmats.
