Every so often, I just want to play with heavier weights in a WOD. I have a few saved just for the purpose that look like the right rep scheme and combination to do that.
I’ve been somewhat lazy recently with WODs. Today I wanted to do one and challenge myself with the weight. I dug up an old one that would be a good one to use the fifty pounders for the WOD.
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..
Today I did last Monday’s WOD but used the RX forty pound dumbbells. I’ve been wanting to get out of my comfort zone with the weight of the dumbbells in WODs when appropriate and that seemed like a good one.
