The Crossfit Open 2015 is just over a month away and I’m definitely looking forward to it. Last year there were movements I couldn’t do (65# overhead squats, kipping pull ups) which I can now do but even better there is a scaled division which means it’s more likely I can complete all the Open WODs.
This means I need to get more serious with my training. And I think I have been. I’ve definitely been pushing myself more with the WODs and trying to lift heavier on all my Olympic lifts.
Snatches are still my hardest lift. I can comfortably lift 70# for a power snatch but need to practice dropping more underneath the bar.
And last week I actually confidently clean&jerked 110#! Felt great! I actually felt that I could have gone up a bit more with the jerk but it was my clean that I struggled with. Again I need to drop under the bar more so that I can go heavier.
Looking forward to the next month of training. Can only get stronger right?!
And new PR for me: 6 unassisted strict pull ups 🙂
Back… must get wider!
Every now and then a post-WOD selfie is needed.
