WOD: CrossFit 02.22.2013

Strength:

5x4 Back Squat & Glute Ham Raise

Squat: 83#, 103#, 123#, 143#, 153#

I tried for 163# after this and made it 2 reps — lost my balance and had to ditch it. I’m not intentionally working out to failure all the time, it’s just that I don’t have a baseline for some things because I had to go light in the past due to injuries (hip flexor crap last year in this case).

I’m not a heavy squatter at all, but it’s fun to work in with somebody brand new who is all, “OMG that-is-so-heavy-how-do-you-even?!”

I skipped the GHR because there were so many freaking people there today — we usually only have about 6-8 at the lunchtime crowd; today there were about 15-18. Crazy!

Then:

3 Rounds for time of:

  • 15-Back Squat @ Bodyweight
  • 15-Toes 2 Bar
  • 150ft Bear Crawl

Started at bodyweight (133#), but after 4 reps I knew I couldn’t do the whole WOD at it so I ditched to 103#. All reps after that were unbroken — GRUNTY!, but unbroken. Sounded like Gold’s Gym up in my rack.  Rarrrrr!! Ummmffpphhh!

And to make this post picturesque, here’s a re-run of a Flashback Friday pic:
