This WOD was inspired by Pat Barber and Wes Piatt from a video of their workout posted on CrossFit.com Checkout that video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BiyrDMhszUc
With a continuously running clock complete 5 thrusters every minute.
From 0:00-5:00 use 75lbs.
From 5:00-10:00 use 95lbs.
From 10:00-15:00 use 115lbs.
Continue adding 20lbs. every 5 minutes for as long as you are able.
I completed 75 total thrusters in 15 minutes. This was fun, I look forward to doing it again in the future!
Practicing the snatch at a light weight of 90lbs tonight. I need to work on this some more!
Working on a 1 rep max deadlift tonight. 405lbs is my 1 rep max deadlift as of September 2014. It’s crazy what a difference 5lbs can be! Tonight I failed but it’s all a part of the process, or should I say progress?
I’ve been doing this workout in variation 3 times now over the past 2 months. My last time was 12:43. This time I got 12:18 — a little bit faster but I was completely out of gas by the 2nd round. I skipped breakfast and did this WOD right in the middle of the day — I’m thinking the empty stomach, and 80 degree weather might have been the problem! Trying to get under 10 minutes on this at some point. Until next time…
