Yesterday, Tuesday Dec. 9: shoulder press. People were testing their 1-rep max, so I decided to do the same, even though only the day before the press did not go so well. Yesterday was better and I pressed 1 at 85 lbs. My right shoulder has something wrong with it.
The workout yesterday was 5 rounds of 2-minute intervals, with 1 minute rest in between: AMRAP 5 power snatch, 10 overhead lunges, 5 power snatch, 10 thrusters. I used 55 lbs and got three rounds plus three reps. The lunges were by far the hardest part. It felt good to work out after being sort of brittle and out of sorts the prior week. Then last night I went to karate class. I love classes where we do tons of kicks because it loosens up my hip muscles and my low back so much. Feels great.
Today I did the WOD first — 30 doubleunders + max effort pull-ups, rest same amount of time as the work took, 5 rounds. My first round, I got 16 pull-ups (kips) and the whole first round took me 54 seconds. I finished with a total of 45 pull-ups. Afterward I had a little time left for back squats and got up to 2 x 5 at 160.
