A few years ago, my workouts tended to be longer, more grueling met-cons. I’ve learned how to program more effective overall programming (Focus on Strength, Technical movements, shorter met-con “finishers”), but there is still a time for grinding it out. Tuesday was one of those nights!
Rotate through 3 rounds of
Row 20 cals
20 box jumps
20 DB push press
Good overall improvement on the cleans, but we still need to work on elbow position on the catch. I was glad to see people setting up and not rushing the individual movements. We always want to focus on precise movement, then we worry about time.
Due to traffic, I didn’t make it to class on time; therefore, I was unable to do the workout during class time.
However, I did stick around afterwards to perform the workout. Needless to say, it kicked my arse! 🙂
I took my time (especially with the power cleans), and I think I finished it in about 33:00. Lately with the clean, it takes a few reps for me to get in a groove.
But it was a good workout. I left Balance Gym feeling satisfied.
CFDC’s own ODB…will be training the Olympic lifts (i.e., snatch, clean-and-jerk, and ancillary exercises) this Saturday starting around 1330 -1400. Come join him!
I really like the workout Tuesday. I left the gym feeling satisfied and couldn’t wait until thursday. And now, it’s Thursday!
I hope I don’t over-arched my back this time.
Missed Tuesday because of work commitments but saw a lot of folks yesterday doing their own things – see you all tonight. I suspect the gym will be about 120 degrees and humid.
And Tom, don’t lie! I saw you wining and dining on my way home 😉
Tuesday’s class was great, I had fun 🙂 Worked in the same group as Sara, Frances and Dawn. Everybody worked really hard. It was nice to have a long metcon as we hadn’t had one in a looong time.
