Another 3 on cycle. Body definitely needs a rest, then will hit the 8pm class tomorrow
Upper body feeling so strong, recovering from hard sessions really well. Legs are taking a pounding and although it frustrates me that they are so weak with squats and deadlifts, I have to progress the right way,which means slowly.
I am still a little way off group one requirements for Squat cleans and probably rowing. Not sure about about snatches and deadlifts. Needless to say I wont worry about it to much, just keep working hard in group 2.
Notes: Happy with how that went. 3rd day on . Definitely would have pushed harder if I was with other people. Felling good though, starting to recover much better and everything is feeling stronger. Have to keep reminding myself not to get impatient with my leg strength
Notes: 1st time doing sets of 12 , found them really hard. What can I say, Squats are my biggest weakness. I just have to be patient and not worry about it. My legs will get stronger if I continue training at Schwartz. No doubt about it
Ben Evans (Schwartz trainer) ran through the Group One requirements on Thursday and said I should start thinking about what I need to do to move into Group 1.
It kind of scares me a bit because I'm nice and comfortable in Group 2 , but thats not why we do Crossfit . So here is where I am at...
Things I can do (and have been checked by a trainer)
1 x Muscleup
10 x HSPU
20 x Pullups
10 x Ring Dips
10 x Wall ball
5 x OHS @40kg * Did this for Ben on Thursday
Things I 'think' I can do but a trainer needs to see
10 x Bodyweight Deadlift
*This will be a struggle with the good form that Schwartz expect
10 x 40kg Push Jerk
* Very confident I can do this
Things that I probably cant do at the moment
2km Row under 8 mins
* Not sure, I have never rowed 2kms, in fact I rowed 1200m for the first time ever on Thursday and I was pretty slow. Hopefully my rowing continues to improve.
5 x 60kg Squat cleans
* This will be the hardest thing for me to achieve. I have weak legs/hips and heavy weights crush me. Having said that my legs have only been getting stronger since starting at Schwartz. I am attempting 6 rep max front squats tomorrow which might give me an indication of how far I have to go.
5 x Snatches @40kg
* I havent done much snatching, so not sure if I will find this hard or not. I can do 5 x OHS at that weight, so thats a start.
