Stay On Target…

It’s funny how a simple question from Jillian can evoke such
work ethic, utter panic and in some cases (mine), a bit of shame. “Are we on
track for January?” Doesn’t seem dangerous or scary, but that little sentence
caused a whole bunch of reaction. I have been eating poorly since American
Thanksgiving (and I don’t regret most of it). While I haven’t totally fallen
back into McDonald’s 3 times a week, it hasn’t always been pretty. As a result
my weight loss has stopped. Well, it will be starting again NOW. With the 49ers
on TV and Mike and Barb visiting, I was a cooking machine. Lunches and dinners
for the week. Check. Jillian, we are getting back on track (just in time for
the Open).
500m Row
3×5 Squats + 1×10 second hold in the hole
3×5 Push-ups + 1×10 second Plank
3×5 Beat Swings
The #530Crew was packed to the rafters like it hasn’t been
in a long time and there were some familiar faces playing tonight. We were
going to be doing a 12 minute strength portion followed by 2 super crispy mini
WODs. I paired up with @Keilshammer for the 12 minute session (alternating
every 2 minutes) of Back Squats (1×8 @205lbs, 1×5 @205lbs and 2×3 @215lbs) and
ME Pull-ups (Strict to start then Kipping). Big news was I did the Pull-ups
with no band and managed rounds of 6, 7, 4 and 8 reps. YAY! The Back Squats
were not so nice. I had trouble getting into the hole and I dipped a few times
as I looked down. Ugh.
“For Matt”
9 – 7 – 5
Power Cleans (@135lbs)
Ring Rows (Double Reps per Round)
Ring Dips (Double Reps per Round, Green Band)
3 minute Rest
WOD 2 (10 minute CAP)
4 Rounds of
10 Shoulder to Overhead (@100lbs)
20 Knees to Elbows
150 Single Skips
Coach Z’s Assistant
The first part was a burner as expected. I managed to get
through it in 5m26s and earn a little extra rest. We changed weights and got
WOD 2 started. Originally it called for 50 DUs instead of Singles, but I
couldn’t string them together for the life of me. I Finished 2 Rounds + 5 skips.  We were all trying to get through the 4
rounds and get to Burpees, but no one was successful.
10x100m Rowling
We had quite the little game for Cash-out and @SarahBassels,
Carling and @CADPRO00 and I got it done. Row and try to have your distance stop
at 100m. Every meter over/under counts as a Burpee. Hit 100m and you can cancel
a round of Burpees. @SarahBassels was on a hot streak and ended up winning by 5
Glute Stretch
Hip Stretch
Calf Smash (with Lacrosse Ball)
Forearm Stretch(s)
Back Stretches
There wasn’t a whole lot left after all of that and with a
full class behind us, GHD homework will have to wait for a later day. The body
feels ok after actually doing overhead work, but I didn’t want to tax it too
hard. Next week I’m headed to Core Strength to try Muscle Activation Therapy to
see if it can fix my issues… All of them.
