Feeling Extra Flexible 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.

Power Cleans Fuck Me Over Sometimes

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.

Can't Always Go By How It Feels

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.
