Skill / Strength: New Hang power Clean PR for 5RM @ 75kg

WOD: Scaled this as 60kg would have been very slow and speed was required. Used 50kg (unbroken Hang Power Cleans), and broke up the Push Press into 2 sets with scores of 12, 10, 13.


Wednesday 24th May 2017

Skill / Strength: Wall Balls (32X1), 3 seconds decent, 2 second old, 1 second accent.  The only throw is on the last rep.  Wednesday’s have now been redefined as Short Shorts Wednesday.

WOD: Medball Cleans using a 20 pound Wall Ball, Push Press used 2 x 16kg Kettlebells, time 12:03

Wednesday 22nd February 2017

Skill / Strength: Managed a 3RM Ring Dip complete with 12kg Kettle Bell.

WOD: Not sure who JT is but this WOD soon took it’s toll.  Paired with Pete (Rotten Egg Cha.sers) the 2nd round of Ring Dips failed, so had to scale it.  Next to go was Press Ups but managed to hang on to them, just.

Friday 10th February 2017

With a good nights sleep, I was raring to go and not my usual tired Friday.

Skill / Strength: Split and Jerk not my favourite lift, however with a 75kg 1RM under my belt it should be respectable.  Managed a couple 70kg 2RM,  these weren’t brilliant, but they count.  Lowering the bar makes this harder than 1RM.

WOD: In pairs with Che, we scaled the bar down from 50kg to 40kg.  Che starting with 2 Push Press, then syncro Burpee over Bar.  I then completed 4 PP. We then proceeded  to split the Push presses of 6, 8, 12, 14, and 16.  The Synchronised Burpee over Bar proved to be the killers.  Final Score 16 + 24 for Team Hello Sailor!
