Hi!

Welcome to my blog where I share what I eat, how I train, and how I live a happy, healthy life!

 

a sore start to the week!

monday morning's wod made my forearms explode... 10 Min AMRAP

  • 10 hang power cleans (i did 83#)
  • 10 pull ups

i ended up finishing  3 Rounds + 10 cleans, which was a total of 40 cleans and 30 pull ups. the cleans were my favorite part by far, and the pull ups made me angry. the weirdest part was that my grip was so exhausted by the third round it was hard just to hold onto the bar! but i did feel awesome when it was over, even though i still can't really straighten my arms.

this morning i was ready for some heavy lifting!

i based my percentages off of my front squat 1RM at my old gym, which was 175#... i was nervous that i would have trouble with the weights, but by the time i did my fourth round, my coach told me to add some weight for the 5th round. i did it, no problem, and could've added some more, but i am proud of what i did! i felt good & strong!

after that, it was KB wod time... i was kind of dreading it because my upper body was still so sore from monday's wod. basically, it was a 10 minute EMOM, and if you couldn't keep up with the minutes, you were cutoff! i ended up getting cutoff after 8 complete rounds of 5 burpees and 15 catch & release kettle bell swings, plus 5 burpees and 7 swings.... so hard. so, so hard!

but here's an awesome picture my coach took of me doing it!

tomorrow is {a much needed} rest day, so mike and i just got back from taking the pups for a walk, and now it is time to relax!

hope you all have a great night!
