Did this one yesterday at CrossFit En Fuego in Tampa. Worked up to 220 on the complex. Felt solid but pressed out on the jerk just a little. Then 220x3x3 front squat. Still feeling nice and light.

Then did a Mercian with their performance track. 75# ground to overhead and double unders. 50-40-30-20-10 dus with 10-15-20-25-30 ground to overhead. Finished in 10:09

10am then AR. Feeling really strong today, not sure what's going on. I wasn't here last week so didn't know how much I'd be able to jerk... surprised myself and worked up to 185 with squat clean and jerk. I'm sure it wasn't 100% beautiful but I felt like I was hitting the positions, and I should be able to go up in weight next week no problem (except I won't be here... stupid Holidays). Then I did 235x3 for front squat, which is 50# more than I've front squatted before. My rack position needs more work and getting out of the bottom was quite hard at this weight, but it went up and nothing crazy happened. Maybe I should be back squatting more than this...

AR was awesome as always. Again not sure what's going on with me this morning but I felt pretty limber, was able to do a few pistols with my problematic right leg after class, and couch stretch didn't feel like a badger tearing through my hip flexors.

It's fun going up in weight and I would love to do a strength cycle... but I just signed up for a trail marathon in DC in a few months, so it'll have to wait (north face series, anyone else doing one of these? I did the bear mountain 10k last year and it was **amazing** I hate NYRR!). Time to get some new running shoes!

Also: any box recommendations in Portland, OR? Not sure if I'll be able to go next week but if I can I'll give it a try... have never visited another box before.

oh yeah: big thanks to my partner Andrew for talking up strength cycle and encouraging me to go heavier on the squats today!

11AM with Josh and McD

Performance complex
50x1 60x1 70x1 80x1 90xF,1 95xF

Finally had some good leg drive and got under that 90, MIGHT have had 95 with a little more rest.

Front squat

Still moving good with a 10lb jump this week. Will probably back off to 5lb jumps for the remainder.

Sprint repeats home and back to get Crystal her forgotten lifting shoes. Then some DIY AR while I waited. Traps are on fire today, maybe from yesterday's heavy clean pulls.

11am class today.

Performance Clean Complex:
83, 93, 103, 113, 123, 133, 143, 148, 153f on the jerk.
-i'm not moving my feet much and not dropping near enough in the jerk. Oddly, I actually got under 153 but I just pushed the bar way out in front so didn't have a chance. It's definitely there.
-a bonus of knowing that I've got to focus on the Jerk is that I don't think about how heavy the clean is. And cleans have felt great so I'm kinda loving this.

FSQ-heavy 3
135x3, 155x3, 170x3, 180x3, 190x3
-the last one kinda felt like crap with my elbows/chest dropping. I just got lazy and tired.

Late night last night so I wasn't sure how things would go today. Overall, pretty happy I kept it together. Cool down with a nice motorcycle ride with the SBK Moto crew for some brunch and now I think I'm going to nap. Good day.

Still struggling with cleans in this cycle - the left shoulder isn't all there. Did a bunch of the fitness complex at 135.

FSQ: 205x3x3
