lame weightlifting session and a satisfying 15.2

Saturday

Went to the weightlifting gym. My coach was on vacation, so I had to improvise. That, combined with the fact that my shoulders, back and quads were really tired made it for a difficult and dangerous training session.

Snatch:
warm-up sets, 2×70, 2×75, 2×80(f), 2×75, 2×75, 2×75, 3×65

Clean & Jerk:
warm-up sets, 2×90, 2×90(f !!), 2×90

Front Squat:
3×100, 3×100, 3×100

Snatch Pull:
3×90, 3×90, 3×90

Clean Pull:
3×110, 3×110, 3×110

The front squats felt solid, so I guess the problem was the general body fatigue.

The CrossFit Open Workout 15.2

For as long as possible:

From 0:00-3:00
2 rounds of:
10 overhead squats (95 / 65 lb.)
10 chest-to-bar pull-ups

From 3:00-6:00
2 rounds of:
12 overhead squats (95 / 65 lb.)
12 chest-to-bar pull-ups

From 6:00-9:00
2 rounds of:
14 overhead squats (95 / 65 lb.)
14 chest-to-bar pull-ups

Etc., following same pattern.

Completed the round of 12s, finished the overhead squats from the 14s round and managed 9 chest-to-bar pullups for a total of 111 reps. Before I saw the video, I never realized that my overhead squats are actually not extended fully and for many of the reps I didn’t go below the knees. My goal was to finish the round of 12s, so I’m happy with the result.
