4:15 @ 85#
I am learning a lot from Robertlee (o god what a name) already. Have never done a triple under in my life. Didn’t string any together but definitely got some today! And whipped myself badly in the process!
This guy trained extensively with USAW people, so we are in good hands.
I decided to scale Grace because honestly, 95 is a lot to push jerk for 30 reps for me, and I wanted to make sure I was cycling the cleans correctly and not rounding my back when doing TNG. Stuck to 3s. Felt good. (Last time I did Grace was 6:26 RX)
Not condemning Hangry Coach but I would have never scaled down 10# ever if he was there…I think with him it was a ‘you need to lift this heavy to debunk your self-doubts’ thing, and it never mattered how slow the time was. I needed that some days and probably will need it more in the future. But today was all about scaling to a level that would allow high intensity under 5 minutes.
Scaling when appropriate, resting and recovering are things that I’m about to get really vulnerable about. We are actually starting over here in terms of athlete/coach relationship and I’m going to try to be as open as possible. Strong people don’t have weak bases. :)
