Thanks, Derek, for the focus on bench technique. I think I finally used my glutes and legs the second attempt at 80# but then too tired to try again! And thanks, Joanne, for showing me!! Great to push each other today 🙂 esp on the KB.

Guess this WOD is in my wheelhouse.
A1 finished set 6 at 190 3.5 reps with spot. Stayed focused on form and blocking energy leaks.
A2 didn’t record time. Kept losing place on clock. Worked on form with fast feet. Keeping up with Joe and Don. I’m improving.
A3 worked from 1p to 2p for sets 4/5. Did full 20 reps for all sets. Felt great.

Thanks T and D

A1:185/205/225/230, 3 reps
Amazing how bench feels good until it doesn’t.

A2: 23 sec/ 22 sec / 22 sec / 22 sec
Longer strides and fast REBOUNDING transitions are the key.

A3: 1.5 pood / 2.0 pood / 2.5 pood / 2.5 pood
Yeah, this sucked. That 2.5 was throwing me around.

Thanks Tania! Fun lifting with you Derek P! Great job 10am.

Bench: 55/65/65/70 for 4 ugly ones/70 for 4 better ones
Shuffle: no idea. Was focusing on moving fast and keeping the butt down
Kettlebell: 0.7/0.7/0.7/1.0 all unbroken for 20

Thanks for coach derek for the push to go heavier with the kettlebell and tips with the bench press, made a night and day difference! Tripped over a set of dumbbells left out from the warm up while trying to stay out of the way of the side shufflers and ate sh*t with an armful of 10lb plates. Luckily lots of padding available on this butt and only my pride was hurt


Bench – Up to 80lbs
SS – 30sec
KB – 20 unbroken at 0.7/1.0/1.0 / then 2 sets for 1.25/1.25
