My legs were actually heavy last night and this morning from the cardio I did. Made Kodiak Cakes this morning to load up on carbs for the long metcon today.
An improvement over the last 5×5 in October.
- 5 Power Cleans (145/100#)
- 10 T2B
- 15 Wall Balls (20#, 10′)
The Open is right around the corner, so it’s time to start pushing the conditioning. I’ve only attempted this workout once and it was three years ago. I got through 9+12 then by doing 4-3-3 on all of the toes to bars, so my goal was 10+ rounds for today.
I got out ahead of a 2:00 pace early and gave myself over a minute to play with after 4 rounds I think. Then I seemed to hold a 2:00 pace for several rounds, before starting to trail in the last couple of rounds. I did all single power cleans again. T2B were all 5-5 and I played around with my technique. If I keep my legs tighter and really get my shoulders through in the kip they are so much smoother. I made myself zone out on the wall balls to keep every round unbroken.
Finished with 10+9 for almost a full round PR. Chalk up another 2019 PR! Amazing how the body can keep improving at 39 years old when it’s healthy. The score of 309 ranks in the 94th percentile for all men on BTWB. I don’t push like that very often. Was doing a good job of not resting much at all between movements.
