Bronze was 20 reps, Silver 30 reps and Gold was the RX 50 reps of each exercise.
So … my attitude was ‘yeah right, like that will ever happen!’ I’ve decided to give myself some time off box jumps. I’ll tackle them again in April – at the moment they are all I can see, and they are stopping me seeing any other progress because I’m locked into getting back into doing them. Unfortunately my synapses have other ideas and aren’t playing along! Given that, for me, the WOD was going to start below the scale I decided I might as well take it easy – I used a 4 kilo medicine ball, a 12 kilo bar and an 8 kilo kettlebell – hindsight says I could probably have taken a 12 kilo kettlebell for the swings.
My time was 20:06 – one second faster than OH who did the WOD later in the day! It was tough though and some exercises were deceptive – why were the back extensions so hellish? Usually I bang those out with no problem, but after the knees to elbows they were really, really, really tough to do.
I watched Camo and Razor Rx the WOD and it was epic to encourage them to beat previous times … can’t imagine myself ever making the 50 though!
• Bruises – front squat markings
• PB – got a x4 on my front squat at my previous one rep max!
• Wishlist – that in April I will be able to do box jumps without fear.
