We kicked off the Throwdown with Fight Gone Bad. We'll finish it with FGB as well to see how much we've improved.
Monday, Feburary 7
Fight Gone Bad
Push Press (75/45)
We did Ball Slams instead of Wall Balls because we don't quite have the room to do Wall Balls yet. I started with a 20# ball but had to switch to 15# quickly because my back started yelling at me immediately. I used 45# for SDLHP and did step ups on the 20 inch box. I used 45# for Push Press and rowed between 6 and 7 calories per round. This isn't bad considering we have to go to the top level to get to a rower which wastes about 30 seconds. My overall score was 246. It is not as good as my previous core but SDLHP were killing me. The most important thing to remember, I have found, is that you need to have a wide stance in Sumo Deadlift High Pull. They are called SUMO Deadlifts for a reason. Also, people tend to forget he shoulder shrug at the end, especially when they get tired. You can do them wrong and get by OR you can do them right and get better. Choose to do them right.
