Ah, Mondays, how I no longer dread you. I most certainly dreaded Mondays when I worked in the “Real World!”
I worked out at 8:30 am, and was joined by
Steven Stephen Dodge Burke for the floor presses. (Nice work, Steve Dodge!)
CrossFit Surmount – CrossFit
WL: Floor Press (5 reps @ 85, 3 reps @ 90, & AMRAP @ 95% of 1RM)
I only managed 1 rep @ 190#. But that sh!t was heavy! How heavy! 1.35% of bodyweight. That heavy.
21 hang power snatches (75/53)
9 chest to bar pull-ups
I was sore from yesterday’s barbell club, particularly in the gluteus maximum region; thus, running was somewhat of a chore. I completed the first set of 21 HPS in reps of 11 (surprising myself), 6, & 5, the second and third sets in reps of 9, 5, 4, & 3. Chest to bar pull-ups were completed unbroken the first 2 rounds and in reps of 5 & 4 the final round.
Time = 12:11
The Paleo challenge continues to go well, and I haven’t knowingly cheated. It’s most difficult whilst grocery shopping, as there are so many goodies, you know, like bread and milk. Ha! I’ve settled at 142#, just 1# less than normal weight, so I’m also happy with that. I sure am eating a substantial quantity of food. We had lunch at Tribeca Tavern today, and it was delicious! Grilled salmon on a bed of wilted spinach and carrot/ginger puree. I’m getting hungry again just thinking about it.
