Kind of a back off week before the four week metcon cycle starts next Monday.

Fran (30kg thrusters): 7:57
Six months ago, the pull-ups would be unbroken in a grown-up Fran. This time around I was doing mostly doubles in the second and third rounds. In a month my time on this workout has increased by 1:13. I guess that's to be expected with the pull-up and metcon absence.


Was planning on front squats and push jerks. My stomach was killing me the whole day, though, so I decided to skip it.

Overhead Squat: 3x50kg, 3x55kg, 3x60kg, 2x65kg, 3x65kg (PR for 3s)
- Three rounds for time of:
- 10 reps each arm Kettlebell Clean and Jerk (24kg)
- 20 Kipping Pull-ups
- 18:49
On the fourth overhead squat set, my left hand slipped. There's a dent in the safety pins on the squat rack from the very much awkward drop.
Horrible time on the metcon, lack of pull-up strength holding me back, wasn't really gassed at all after finishing.



Front Squat (1RM): 1x100kg, 1x110kg (PR)
Knees-to-elbows: 3x10
Back Extension: 3x10
This was supposed to happen on Saturday but... it didn't. PR'd on front squats by 7.5kg.
Did some shoulder mobility work afterwards.

Body Weight: 84.15kg
