Tonight we did 100 DU’s for time and maxed on Front Squat.
I “have” double unders, but I am very inconsistent… one minute I’ll do 15 in a row, the next I’m doing 1s and 2s. We did 100 for time (my first time to do that) and I finished in 3 minutes, 24 seconds. My goal was below 4 minutes, so I guess I did okay there.
Then, we maxed on front squat. My previous 1RM was 120lbs, and considering how little I’ve worked on squat lately, I told myself I’d be happy just to get 120lbs. I ended up maxing at 135lbs, I never failed so maybe I could have done 140 but I guess there’s no point in what-ifs! Regardless, I didn’t feel that great about it. My knees cave in and I lean forward some when I don’t get my elbows up properly, whenever I get heavy or tired. I know that I did that rep low enough (everyone was watching), and I got back up, but I didn’t walk away feeling super strong. I suppose a PR is a PR, though. Yay for front squatting MORE than my body weight!
I think on Wednesday we are doing another max, but not sure what lift. I really want to do a clean or snatch or some sort of press, because all of those I know I’ve improved a LOT from when I first started. Looking at my PR page, I had 65lbs as my push press max…… well today I did 60 reps (sets of 6) push press at 75lbs sooooo I’m going to guess that I can do even more than that 🙂
