Strength Training Tuesday – 3/29/11
Tuesday, March 29, 2011 – Strength WOD
4X 2 press + 3 push press – 53#, 63#, 73#, 78#
5X2 back squat @ 80% max – 120#
3X5 deadlift @ 60-65% max – 133#
plus… 1-3 chest-to-bar strict chin-ups @ 2012 tempo* between squat and deadlift sets
Five cool things about this workout:
1. I shared a rack with Walker, one of our coaches. She’s a great workout partner, even though I’m very envious of her unassisted chinups and gymnastics ability.
2. PUSH PRESS!
3. I was able to squeeze out a bunch of strict chin-ups with the skinny red band (and some on the wider blue band, too, when I got tired). That tempo was tough!
4. This is my third week in a row of making time for strength training. YAY!
5. I wore my badass socks.
*2012 tempo = 2 seconds down, 0 at the bottom, 1 second up, 2 seconds at the top
