Monday our WOD was “Jackie.”
Back Squat 2×12
50 Thrusters (m-45#, w-35#)
Compare to 10-5-10.
Back squats were at 85# and were pretty challenging. I should have gone up to 90# but decided just to keep it at 85. My form felt good and I’m doing a much better job of keeping on my heels.
I was excited when I saw rowing…then I realized we were doing thrusters. Crap! The bane of my existence! (next to running…) I have never done a workout well or a workout I’ve enjoyed that included thrusters. (Especially that time Lindsey made us do a tabata thruster WOD. OMG) Well, I did the scaled which was a 750m row, 30 thrusters @ 15# and 20 pull ups (I used green & red bands). I finished in 5:55 and I blasted through the thrusters, only stopping to rest my legs once. The pull ups were unbroken. I really should have done the thrusters at 35# and the pull ups with either green/purple or just the green. I did Jackie back in October but I did not record my time so I have no idea how or if I’ve progressed. Who am I kidding? I know I progressed. I could barely even do a thruster back then…
So, overall, pretty happy with my results! Will definitely push myself further next time!
