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 I’d do Street Parking power WOD today. It called for 8 heavy back squats with 90 seconds in between and increasing weight a little each time.. warming up felt heavy as hell. 185 felt like 90% but I knew I couldn’t have lost 100 pounds in that time. Started working at 235 adding 5 pounds each rep. All except for the sixth rep where I got a bit out of position felt very explosive.
