For my birthday this year I decided to go with my Crossfit total since I was long overdue on that. I got a lifetime PR on the back squats. Later, I did a brutal sled and strong man sandbag WOD in the heat.
It was really a surprising day for me today. I attempted my twenty rep back squats at 250 pounds the other day and aborted at one rep. Today after not sleeping super well due to alcohol I made the PR at the 250 pounds and they didn’t even feel that bad.
It was another week of twenty rep squats and another PR. THe PR felt pretty good too.
It’s nice that I can do movements now that I was never really comfortable with in the past. Today I did dumbbell step ups. I’m still not thrilled with the Movement but I was able to do them!
I had some good things and some disappointing things happen in the garage today. I can’t really complain though. I got out there and did things.
I like some hero WODs from Crossfit as benchmarks. Dt was one that I really liked. It was a tough fight the first time I did it. This time I did it with 135 pounds instead of 95 pounds and much more quickly too.
Grace is one of my favorite benchmark WODs. probably because it’s the first one I really tried and did so poorly at very early on in Crossfit up at Mike Jenkin’s Crossfit Gamma. Today we re did it and i got a big PR on it.
