Going Heavy

Workout of the Day

WOD 1 – In the morning

Back Squat 3, 3, 3+

Floor Press 5, 5, 3, 1

Ring Dips 15, 15, 15

Good Mornings 20, 20, 20

WOD 2 – In the evening

Handstands and L sits

Wasn’t sure how the legs were going to feel today after yesterday’s hill workout but when I woke up to meet John for a session, things weren’t too bad actually. We got after the squats, working up to 385 for 5 and 275 for 5 respectively. The floor presses topped out at 285. Honestly the best part of this morning’s session was the dip/good morning assistance superset at the end. I lowered the good morning weight from 165 to 115 and doubled the repetitions. It was a completely different feel and hopefully I’ll provide a different type of strength.

This evening I wanted to play around a bit and wound up doing nearly an hour of various handstand drills and L-sits from different positions. The best of these was on the rings. Holding an L position on the rings is really tough—blows my mind to think of the Olympic gymnasts doing all that and more. Maybe one day… HA!

Tomorrow morning is the Barbells for Boobs charity event at CrossFit West Sac. Looking forward to getting a good sweat in and hang with a lot of the other crossfitters from the area. Squat clean Grace might not feel so fun.
