Today was brilliant. I mean all around, not just in the gym, but since this is a look at my training and nutrition, we'll stick with that. I trained on the 6:30pm class at CrossFit Napalm.
Build to 3 Rep Max - 120kg - This is a lifetime best.
3 Position Snatch
Build to a heavy single - 80kg - I actually missed the 3rd lift at 85 through and error, but htat's okay. All in all it went well.
5x3 at 105% of snatch 1RM - I reduced this A LOT to 60% and went with a slow tempo of 5 seconds per pull, with an aggressive finish, to really feel position.
14 Minute AMRAP:
10 Toes to Bar
20 Double Unders
1 Squat Clean Thruster 60kg*
*Add 1 rep each round
I completed 8 rounds and 4 toes to bar. To say I'm pleased with this is an understatement for a few reasons. Firstly, I suck at both toes to bar at volume, and double unders pretty much always. Whenever the two movements show up together, I usually go to shit. Today I didn't. Also, when there's a barbell combined with these movements, historically that has made the bar 50% heavier in my mind. Today it felt light. This workout became what it should have been; a test of gas! I managed to stay unbroken on the toes to bar except for 1 break in the 8th round. The double unders were unbroken throughout. Be under no illusion, the gas could use more work as always, but I'm happy nonetheless!
