Row PR

Tuesday, January 29, 2013

Today's WOD:

"For time:
500 M Row

9-6-3 Reps for time:
Back Squat (245/173)
Power Snatch (155/113)

This workout will be completed on one bar. Athletes will be responsible for changing their own weights out. Bars must be clipped before athletes lift on them. Back squats will be taken from the squat racks."

The last time I did a 500m row for time was in October during testing week for Strength Class. I remember it was the last thing we did, so I was probably a little worn out from lifting heavy. My time was 1:53. Today? 1:45. Eight second PR! I'm sure it's not 100% fair to compare it to a time I when I was more tired, but whatever, I'll take it ;) I was also the fastest woman in the class. Okay...I was the only woman... :)

The backsquats were supposed to be at a weight we could to them unbroken. I couldn't decide between 103 and 113. I knew 123 was probably too much since I've used that weight in some recent WODs doing sets of 5 and it was pretty tough. I ended up going with 103, but I think I could've handled a little heavier. I did the power snatches at 63. I really tried to remember the tips I learned at Oly class, but I could tell my form wasn't quite there on all the reps. I need to get back to a snatch Oly class soon! Anyway, my time was 5:47.

The WOD for tomorrow is already up. Deadlifting! I haven't done that in a while, so I'm excited! Hopefully my new Oly shoes help me to PR :)

    That's an impressive time on the rower!

    I hate when I underestimate my weights for a WOD, but the good news is that it wasn't too heavy and you had a great time. 63 power snatch is AWESOME!

    Keep up the awesome work, I love hearing about your WODS.
