A. Snatch: 6x1 @ 80% Effort; rest 2min
B. Wtd. Pullup: 5x2-3 @ 21x2; rest 3min (53, 55.5, 56.75, 58, 59.25 (2))
C. Reverse Hyper: 3x20; rest as needed
Notes: Snatches felt horrible today. Everything felt heavy and my brain was in a fog. Couldn't catch anything. Also have a bruise on my right hand that causes some discomfort in gripping the bar and in the catch. Will have to review videos to see what the heck was going on today.
Grace (30 Clean and Jerk w/ 135lbs.)
Cindy in time remaining (5 Pullups, 10 Hand Release Pushups, 15 Squats)
Rounds: 15 + 5 Pushups
Notes: Was pretty fried before this workout. I was thinking of all kinds of excuses not to train, but I know that this is just my brain trying to protect my body. No dice Brain, I want this to happen. I need to keep pushing in order for my body to adapt. To make 20min AMRAPs my bitch. To make lifting heavy after aerobic training no big deal. I just have to keep my head down, shut my ears to the bad thoughts, and move forward.
Planned on hitting Grace at around 85% intensity so that I could get right into Cindy. I think I paced it reasonably well since I was able to get right into the rest of the workout. Haven't done Cindy in quite some time (especially since I am much bigger than when I did 30 rounds in Sept. 10') so I didn't really know how to pace it. I did hand release pushups since this is the standard now a days and it is still a goat of mine. Low back started to tighten after a few rounds, so this seemed to be my biggest limiting factor, even over the breathing. Was able to put the hammer down on the last 2-3 minutes and crank out some good reps. Felt good once it was all finished.
