Back Squats 5x3
Looked like this 45, 75, 125, 135, 140, 150 (1)
I last back squated on November 4th, almost a solid 3 months ago. I was trying to hit my previous PR of 150x3, but I knew that: 1) I haven't worked hard enough to maintain it, and 2) I haven't worked hard enough to DESERVE it.
Once I got past that in my head I decided to just do the best I could today. I was working on a smith machine and, well, I did not have my usual spotters, 0515 encouragement, nor Jerry taking photos of early morning squat face...needless to say, I'm finding it hard to find the intensity I need to really push hard.
140lbs for 3 was actually pretty easy. I hit 150 for 1 and it was strong. I should have gone for two more, but without spotters, no where to dump it, and no intensity, it wasn't worth it.
Afterwards, Chip and I worked pullups. I have nowhere to do a true kipping pullup, but I worked the strict on roman chair like thing. I started in a strict position, did a mini kip with my hips then got up there. I did that for 15 reps--or failure.
Then WOD #3:
25 Kettlebell swings (35lbs)
20 situps (full sit ups)
Chip beat me, that's all that really matters. I should've smoked him...but again...I must find the intensity.
Looking forward to hitting another WOD tomorrow!
