CLASS WOD - 0520 Part A: I did the sport weight, but the life reps.


6 Power Snatches (65#)

40 SU's

End Result: Mentally, this workout was just tough for me. I wanted to challenge myself by using 65#, which I did, but it ended up not being as quick as I would have liked. I wasn't getting through all the jump roping, but considering it was more of a skill-focus little WOD, I wasn't too upset about it. I'm starting to feel more and more comfortable with that 65#, which means I'm certainly getting stronger with it as well.

Part B:


10 Box Jumps (24")

10 Hang Squat Cleans (85#)

End Result: 3 + 5 / Definitely a good challenge! I scaled the weight appropriately for what I felt like I could keep moving through, and was glad I settled on 85#. While power cleans are fun and all, it was good to work on the squat cleans as well!

Part C:

:20W / :10R , x8 - V-Ups = 56 total reps!

We had a talk about where sport class is going to go from here, and I'm excited for what is to come! Since I wasn't certain what we would be doing, I didn't warm up as well as I could have for Hatch. Every set felt pretty heavy and hard, and even after, my body just wasn't happy with doing the squats. After finishing my Hatch squats for today, there was handstand work!

Part A: x6 , :30W/:20R HSPU - First 2 Rounds = orange band & Last 4 Rounds = orange + small green

6 / 6 / 6 / 4 / 3 / 5

Ryan helped me to alter my hand position. He realized my hands were turned out just a little too much. We turned them in a little more, to more of a push-up/push press placement, which actually worked really well! Also, instead of trying to rep it out, he told me to rest down on my head and reset before pushing myself up.

Part B: x3 ME Handstand Walk

Get up and balance, THEN go. Only cue I focused on for the rest of my attempts.


Sleep / sleep cycle = 5:24 / Definitely not ideal. Despite being a tad exhausted from doing yard work at Matt's parents, we were both oddly wired once we were back home. This led to a much later bedtime than usual, and the alarm came quick this morning. Energy felt relatively good all day, but I hope to get myself in to bed much earlier today, even if I spend more time reading than initially falling asleep. Didn't really feel the need for an afternoon Spark, but knew it wouldn't hurt to keep my energy up for the day.

Nutrition / The hunger is real today, and I'm working on trying to stay on top of being fed. After taking the weekend off from tracking on my phone (I actually kept up with most of it in my head), it feels good to be logging. Dairy was consumed at dinner, so I definitely went to bed with bloat and a stomachache, and felt a pretty good stomachache after completing the workout this morning. I usually turn down the foods with dairy because of not wanting to deal with the consequences, but yesterday had two amazing sides and what is life if you don't give into those treats once (or even twice) a year! Note: The hunger was legit crazy all day.
