After this weekend, I was looking forward to getting back to my regular WOD schedule, except that I’ve had painfully sore hamstrings since the cert! Holy moly, they wrecked our hamstrings, hahaha. It’s pretty awesome though, it’s that good kind of sore that makes you remember that you did something great.
Today was Back Squat and Front Squat Day. Week 3 Day 1. I failed big time on the front squats.. I only got my first set in of 5 at 140lbs and I called it quits. My legs and hip flexors just weren’t feeling it. I made it all the way through my back squat set, though, all the way up to 3 reps of 210 lbs. Holy jesus.
My wrist was bugging me too from the front squats, so instead of pushing myself to getting hurt, I just re-racked the bar and instead, got ready for the workout.
If I keep pushing myself to the point of getting hurt, how can I get stronger?
Tonight was a 9 min AMRAP
30-Slam Ball Tosses (20lbs)
10-Slam Ball Step Ups (5 on each leg, up onto a 20″ box)
I completed 3 rounds plus 42 reps. Yay! I only wanted to get through 3 rounds. 🙂
