Moderation and easing into things has never been my strong point, for this reason Im fairly sure I over did it today for my first day back after Antarctica. For the build up to the Crossfit Open ill throw up my training day for all those who would like to follow along. First up this morning was a strength session.
Front Squat, 5 x 5rm – 105kg
Strict Shoulder Press, 5 x 5rm – 70kg
Weighted Pull Ups, 5 x 5rm – 32kg
Dips 5 x 5rm – 32kg
Kipping Pull Ups, Hand Stand Push Ups superset. 20 Pullups 8 HSPU
After Lunch I had a rings skill session practising ring pull ups, ring dips and muscle ups.
3PM (Hottest Part of the Day) NANCY Kicked my ass
5 Rounds for time
15 Overhead Squats with 43kg barbell
Now it started ok dancing with Nancy, then in the third set of OHS I was failing bad. On the fourth run the heat kicked me in the guts and I was slowing like a wounded dear. To make a long story short she beat me down to finishing with the bar before I collapsed in a pool of sweat at 14.17 min. Def not a score worthy of my personal whiteboard, but it is a great motivator for the upcoming week. Bring on Sunday and session two.
