I’m tired today but my body feels good after yesterday’s workout. Went to the 4pm class.
- 1:30 Assault Bike (30s Easy/Hard/Easy)
- 10/10 Single Leg/Arm Deadlifts (44#)
- 10 Good Mornings (PVC)
With 285 and up I wore my belt and used a mixed grip for the first time in ages. So much easier on the grip. Deadlifting felt really good for the first time in a long time.
- 5 C&J (165#)
- 15 Sit-ups
The Rx for this was 185 pounds. Two years ago I did a heavy Grace with that load in 6:59 and it was horrible. Not sure I could keep the same type of pace with my current strength, even with the sit-ups pacing it out a lot more. Decided on 165# so I could hopefully move through it.
I did all quick singles and was able to go right into my jerk on every rep, without a full stand up from the clean. Used the sit-ups to catch my breath some. Finished in 8:01. I wore my belt, which I think helped a lot. During the first round I loosened and tightened it with the sit-ups, but after that I just kept it tight.
Should I have gone Rx though? I would have needed to take an extra breath or two before each rep and at some point probably would’ve started standing up to reset for the jerk. With a time cap of 15 minutes I’m thinking I should have tried 185#.
