This year, my first WOD of the year involved something which still fairly new to me and very uncomfortable. I thought I did pretty well with it, though.
This year, especially the latter half, I’ve been pushing myself with the dumbbell weight’s in WODs. For most of the movements, I am comfortable enough with them to go to the RX or RX plus weights.
Some things I can cycle fast and others not so fast as far as dumbbells are concerned. Today I tried doing them in a death by WOD, and was cycling through the bigger sets easily and much more quickly than I imagined..
I’ve been wanting to, when it’s appropriate work out of my comfort zone with dumbbell WODS. The Rx weight is typically 40 pounds which I have the strength for but I am just not super comfortable with performing many movements with that weight at this point. The dumbbells are a fairly new tool and stimulus for me. Last Saturday we did a partner version of a WOD which I chose to use the 40 pound Rx weight for.
