A. 265/275/280/285/290/295/300 (that’s my personal best)
B. 75/95/105/115/125 – F/125 – F/120 – F (115 is my personal best too)
dropped one of the snatches on my water bottle – reminder not to leave the water bottle so close next time 🙂
Thanks Kris and everybody at the 9:30 class!

Back Squat – worked up to 210# cut it there in order to have some more time for the power snatch. Def. have more as it’s 10# off my PB.

Power Snatch – worked up to 102# which ties my PB. Makes a huge difference using the smaller diameter bars. Ran out of time or would have tried 107#.
Next time for sure!

Nice work to everyone in the 9:30 class!

A. 125/130/135/145/150/155/157.5 new PR 🙂
B. 36/41.5/45/50…ran out of time. Definitely, could’ve gone higher – felt pretty good. Thanks, Kris.

Nice Job on the PBs Don!!!!!

Did yesterday’s WOD along side Krista. 23:08. Tried to get it under 23 but those darn toes to bar….. I want to be ALI! Good job everyone is 9:30 class and thanks Krista for not showing us the contents of your stomach.

I second Stacey’s comments Krista. MUCH appreciated!

nice work Don and Ali!

hee hee girls!!! I seriously felt ill for HOURS after!! oh dear…
great job this morning everyone! Ali – wow… I want to be you too!! thanks Stacey for keeping me going!! (posted yesterday too 26:38)

Worked up to 175 on the backsquat – felt surprisingly strong here so could go higher I think but was short on time.
For snatch only got to 62 due to no time – this felt good too but need to continue working on form for this lift.
Nice work in the 9:30 class – it was a treat to have a morning class! Ali- wow!! Krista, I’m glad you contained the contents of your stomach too;)

A) 275×2/315/345/355/357.5
B) 135/155/165(f)/165/175/185(f)/185(f)/185(f) need to work on re-bending at the hips and dropping under the weight

thanks DJ

A) 95/105/115/120/125/130/135 Felt I could increase more but ran out of time. First time and didn’t know what I could do.
B) 33/45/55

A) 185/205/215/235/240(f)/240/245(PR)/250(f)
B) 95/105/115/125/130/135(f)
Thanks DJ for freshening up before the hump/spotting on the back squat

A) 95, 125, 145, 150, 155, 157.5(f) then DJ told me to stop there since I literally crumpled under the bar, need to work on this weakness.
B) 42, 52, 62, 72, 77, 82 (f)- was at my forehead but still scared to get under the bar, also need to work on this.

Did WOD from August 19 at home, and posted there.

Don’t have a rack yet, so decided to do “the Bear” instead. Haven’t done it in quite some time, and I’ve been wanting to do it for a while now.
Wrists were really hurting after the last set, so decided to call it a day; didn’t want to cause any damage. Plus, I would have had to go up by 10# since i don’t have any 1.25# plates yet; I don’t know that I could have done 80#. Either way, it is a 10# PR for me.
Was planning on doing some light power snatch practice after, but again, the wrists…

oops, meant to say “would have had to go up 5#…”
Apparently “the Bear” did not just mess with my wrists… looks like the brain got damaged too!
