WOD #1: “DOUBLE UP”
5 Power Cleans 125#
10 Bar-Facing Burpees
25 Unbroken Double Unders
*8:00 time cap*
My Time: 12/25 double unders (9)
Really thought I’d finish this one. Damn, was I close. Fucked up the first set of double unders. Got to 20 and tripped up. FML. And had one no-rep burpee in my last round (I think) because I jumped over the bar sideways. Whatever. griddelman blames me not finishing on only touch-and-going the first set of cleans. Fine, maybe should have connected more, but whatever. If I didn’t fuck up I had a good shot at finishing. But, what are you gunna do?
WOD #2: “IT’S OVER YOUR HEAD”
6 Minute Clock:
Build to a 1 Rep Max Overhead Squat
My Max: 165# (2T)
Killed the shit out of this. This put me in 4th place from 9th. Not that it matters lol. Thank the jerk gods for giving me an amazing jerk today. Because that is my limiting factor in overhead squats. Maybe all this Outlaw Barbell programming is paying off more than I think. Honestly, wish I had time to try heavier, because this felt awesome. I usually don’t split jerk for overhead squats either, but my mind/body speaks to me about which jerk I should do. And for some reason, today it told me split jerk. Is this weird? I literally get senses telling me if I should push/split/squat jerk. Okay, usually squat jerk isn’t an option. But whatever. It’s so weird. And I felt it the first time I went for 160# but I went for a push jerk instead. And I missed it. Went for it again and split jerked it. Easy. I have a sixth sense, and it is the jerk sense. Be jealous.

Also, I think this officially closes the argument that my crossfit strength is strength. LOL.
WOD #3: “DON’T DROP THE BAR!”
8 Minute AMRAP:
4 Chest-to-Bar Pull-Ups
8 Shoulder-to-Overhead 115#
*10 air squat penalty if you drop the bar*
12 Box Jumps 20”
My Score: 76 reps (3 + 4 pull-ups) (8)
Pull-ups weirdly got better as I went on. My judge was super surprised when I went for alternating grip. “Wow you must have flexible shoulders.” You don’t even know, buddy. Did two air squat penalties. Once in the second round and once in the third. First round I did unbroken. Second was 4 - air squats - 4. Third was 5 - air squats - 3. Box jumps I took easy. Probably too easy. But whatever. Had a chance to make it to the final WOD (top 5 went), but obviously that didn’t happen. This entire WOD my throat was so fucking dry. I would swallow to no avail. I was dying. Also, getting over some bullshit throat cold shit. But I don’t think that affected anything I did today. So whatever.
P.S. Thank you to the lovely crossfit-cupcake for wishing me good luck! luh you!
Also, the one and only Mr. Beautiful (Kenny Santucci) was there. I’ve seen him at a few crossfit events, but I’m too pussy to go say anything LOL. Don’t know who that is? Look it up IDC. LOL.
