Today’s WOD was:
1. Work up 1 1RM Snatch (Option: Power Snatch + OHS)
2. Using 50% of 1RM, perform 3 Snatches + 3 Pullups OTMEM for 10 mins
3. 5 Rounds of 1 min Farmers Hold @ Max Weight + 1 min max situps
Part 1: I got 75# for my 1RM Snatch. I was positive I could get 80# but it just wasn’t in the cards today. No PR for me.
Part 2: I used 45# for the second part of the WOD and found it quite difficult to get the snatches and pullups in before my one minute was up. My kipping pullups are getting better on the rings but using the bar today revealed that my kip from the bar simply sucks. I have to find a way to fix that ugly and ineffective kip.
Part 3: Farmers hold - I hate that movement. Hate it. Because it is difficult. I started with 15# dumbbells but drop them like 4 times the first round. Next round, I dropped to 10# dumbbells and was able to hold them for the full minute for the next 2 rounds. I dropped once the 4th round and none the 5 th round. I got this many situps each round: 33, 31, 28, 28, 29.
All said and done for this week, the only parts of me that need attention are my hands and forearms (quite sore). I managed to do 30 snatches + OHS and 30 pullups with no real issues with my shoulder. I like.
