Today was a nice day. Cooler and much less humid than it’s been in quite a while so I went for my Crossfit total. No PRs but it all felt good.
As the title says today’s lifting in the home gym was absolutely brutal for me. Once again I woke up extra early and have been tired. My brain says it’s time to get up then once I am fully awake it says nahh fuck you, you need more sleep. To add to that all my lifts today were heavy. Starting as always with the back squats which were set to be 260 pounds for today.
For today’s strength in the program it’s squat, bench, good morning and pull ups. Probably my least favorite day of the three but it’s still good to work on things I don’t like or care all that much about even if it’s just for balance. Don’t get me wrong, I do stretch if I feel the need to and I’m in the minority that I am pretty flexible at my age but I prefer if anything to be a little tighter while lifting.
Today I ended up not doing a metcon. I’m just feeling a little burned out on them from the rough time I had on Friday. I normally don’t do Street parking’s “Oly” program. (BTW that word “oly” is fucking stupid.) Today it looked interesting enough I thought I would play today. The first part was work up to a heavy single power clean. This felt really good. I made it up to 195 which felt easy and looked easy.
I decided to go for a Crossfit total this weekend. It’s been well over a year since I’ve had current numbers and I thought I needed to see where I stand. We’re going to do it again in September but I did it today. I wasn’t really feeling it today but went for it anyways and I am happy I did. I wasn’t going for all out maxes but instead I was going for heavy for today singles.
