I’ll keep this brief because I am indulging in a Saturday night movie with my dad, mum and Mrs Nomad. (yes, I’m writing about Friday on a Saturday). It’s the movie “The Imitation Game” and I love it.
This was a superb WOD to end the week on. It covered my favourite movement, the Clean and a tasty little heavy chipper.
And so, as it always is on a Friday morning, I got up, grabbed my coffee and towel, and headed in to the box.
A. Every Other Minute, 20mins
Work up to a 2Rm Clean
70 / 75 / 80 / 80 / 85 / 85 / 90 / 95 / 90 / 95kg
A new PR for me in the Clean at 2 Rep Max. Not only that but I know I could have smashed 100kg today for a 1 Rep. I even think 102.5 would have been quite possible. Next time, Krapotkin, next time!!! (90s comedy reference 😉 )
B. For time
- 50 Wall Balls 9kg to 10′
- 40 Box Jumps 30″
- 30 TTB
- 20 KB Swings 32
- 10 Cleans (Squat) @ 75% of A – (72.5kg)
Time: 11:16 Rx
This was a top chipper to work through. Wall balls were unbroken to 35 and then a further 15. I could have done all 50 unbroken but chose not to, readying myself for the Box Jumps. Unbroken. TTB – 20+5+5. KB – 3×10. Cleans – 10×1.
All in all, a great way to end the week; I’m still feeling the Tabata Push Ups from Thursday and need some rest now. I’ll perhaps go for a walk on Dartmoor tomorrow but then it’s back in to it on Monday!
Now, back to the film…..
