Notes from Coach: Weight is 135/95. Be prepared for a week full of a$$ kicking WODs…I don’t want to feel guilty eating my pie 😉

Scaling: 55#, leg raises

Score: 14:28

Maaaaaan, those overhead squats just killed me!!! I was bummed that I couldn’t do more weight, but I tried 65# in the warm up & had to dump it. OHS just feel so awkward. I get unbalanced & can’t get back up. I felt my back straining a lot when my form was off. Lowering the weight to 55# helped with that. Better mobility in my shoulders would help me – I don’t know that I’m getting the bar back as far as I should. The 55# cleans were super easy, and the thrusters weren’t too bad. I think I’ll go up to 65# thrusters the next time they show up in a WOD.  I’ve been doing 55# for a while now. On a positive note, the toes to bar were by far the best I’ve ever done, my toes were maybe an inch from the bar in some of them. Definite progress there.
