  1. rest day yesterday back at my crossfit gym at school and im so happy! the programming is the best. cheaper at my home box but definitely little structure... one day our coach scheduled a volume deadlift workout the day after finding a heavy deadlift???? anyway... work to a heavy back squat triple. got up to 140 and finally got even more depth thanks to better coaching. happy w it! spotter helped me on the last rep then strict pull up work, striving for a rep. obviously didn't get one but i felt slightly stronger while trying it if that makes sense. then 8 rounds of 4 burpe
  2. thursday deadlift. worked up to 2x5 @170 and 1x2 @185 then did 3x6 strict press @50. then push press 1x3 @75 (rep pr i think) and 1x1 @80. then jerked 80 and held it up for 30s. 20-15-10 kettlebell swings, wall ball, ring rows did three rounds. took ~9 minutes. then bear complex stuff. did 1x3 and 1x5 reps at 50 and it felt super difficult. today back at school gym... don't even know the amount of weight used on these unfortunately. definitely using a men's bar but don't know exact weight. just went by feeling rather than weight numbers which is probab

  9. overhead squat work... worked to 70lb triple then worked to a heavy clean and jerk. hit 95# again. managed to sloppily clean 100# but there was no way i could have jerked it. then 21-15-9 of russian kettlebell swings (44#) and ring rows. finished in 6:00. the ring rows were what killed me. and finished off w 6 minute amrap of heavy kettle bell farmer's carry (62# per hand) across the gym and back (one way was ~25 steps) and 5 burpees. got 4 full rounds + 1/2 a walk.

  14. a workout at my crossfit box today. i often come here and do my own thing because it seems like the metcons always would hamper my recovery if i did them. today my lower back is sore from deadlifting yesterday but today's metcon featured lots of deadlifting. boo. my box is v small so i actually had the entire space to myself fortunately :-) did some overhead squat work and worked to a 65 triple. wasn't testing myself that much though. then practiced clean and jerks without any sort of structure. i LOVE clean and jerks. snatches? not so much. i hit a new pr today of 90# though! unexpected
