Toes To Bar

I found a picture that totally describes my life:

Yesterday's WOD was good but my shoulders and arms are very tired today.

Thursday, 29 April


Bench Press


DB Push Jerk 20
DB Push Jerk 18
TTB 2...
DB Push Jerk 2
TTB 10

So Bench Press, my greatest friend and worst enemy, went alright. I am plateau-ing with that though. I can't really seem to get past doing 105 properly. I can do 115 was iffy. I hope I can move off of it soon!

RDLs (Romanian Deadlifts) went alright but they hurt my back too. I only used 65lbs but it hurt. I really dislike Deadlifts. The rest of the WOD was good. I used 20lb dumbbells for the Push Jerks. Boy did they tire out your shoulders! The Toes To Bar were rough but I was able to actually do them at first. They were slightly farther away from the bar towards the end was better than usual! This WOD was not timed.

Rule #28

Don't fwhap yourself with the assistance band while doing Ring Dips. I did and got a nice bruise on my thigh. It shows up nicely through my pasty pale skin.

It has been awhile.

Tuesday, 28 April



AMRAP in 15 minutes of:
10 Box Jumps
10 KB Swings
10 Ring Dips
10 Overhead Plate Lunges

I went light on the Deadlifts because I am tired of hurting my back and not being able to run well for days afterward. I was up to 135. I know I can do way more but it just isn't worth it to me. What is the point of being able to Deadlift 200lbs when you can't move the next day?

The rest of the WOD went alright minus the assistance band fwhapping. I am not sure how many rounds I got through but it was at least 5. I used the tallest box for Box Jumps, 16kg for Swings, switched between Ol' Blue and Lil' Red for the Ring Dips, and used the 25lb plate for OHL. Overall it went well.

In other news, this picture is kind of ridiculous:
