John, are you saying it would have been more fun with more weight?

Wow, hadn’t done either of these is a long time.
Needed to practice – stayed light….

Great class for practice, thanks DJ!

Thanks DJ..good luck with the regionals!

A. 2 reps X 6 sets @ 105lbs, failure point = wrists
B. completed @85lbs

Felt super gassed from the warmup, bummer = me.

A worked up to 70lbs
B started at 60, worked down to 40.

At home; only did A as back started to feel tight, so decided to skip part B.
55/65/75/85/90/95/100 (f)
(It’s been a long time since I’ve had this much weight overhead. Was really hoping to reach the 100# mark to get over a mental hump. Back didn’t feel good having the weight in the rack position; still tried the lift but was too scared to get enough speed/power)

A – 95/105/115/115/115/125
B – scaled to 95#, made it through the first 7 rounds anywhere between 18-25 seconds. round 8 and 9 were closer to 30, and round 10 was around 40. Dropped the weight twice in that last round; grip was failing me.

A: 155/175/185/195 x 2 : Ran out of time.

A. Worked up to 145 – got 1st, failed on 2nd/repeated failed again on 2nd – next time!!!
PR’d back squat in afternoon – forgot about my split jerk!!! 🙂
B. As rx’d…. FUN!!! Legs fried. Thanks Laura for 9:30!! Thanks Brett for this aft!
Great job 9:30ers!! Tammy, I saw you sweat! Rhiannon You did awesome! Especially B.!

B: 135 as Rx’d
C: Bench Press – 185/205/215/225/235

Thanks DJ.

A: Stayed at 65 and just practiced..I need to bend my back leg and not over extend my hip. I also need to work on my flexibility.
B: Stayed light too because I felt like it – 75#
Thanks for the tips DJ, they are appreciated!

A. up to 135 X2 getting more confident with this lift
B. as rx’d later in the afternoon – between 11-14 secs/round…and a ‘lil back squat PR (210) 🙂
