Today was a stength day for me. My back felt so much better this morning! I redid my 500 meter row and got it under 2 minutes -1:56! a PR for me! I was in such a great mood! We had a great group there this morning, the music was pumpin' and we were having fun! I love my box, I really do!
BUT, during my last set of cleans, as I was pulling the second one, I felt my back twinge again, same place! Damn IT! So, I rolled it out with a ball and finished the set but the clean pulls just weren't happening for me today.
STRENGTH WOD (all percentages are based on 1RM)
Front Squat: 60%, 5 reps (83lbs), 70%, 4 reps (98lbs), 80%, 3 reps-4 sets (113lbs)
Clean: 60%, 3 reps (83lbs), 70%, 3 reps (98lbs), 75%, 3 reps(103lbs), 80%, 3 reps-3sets (110lbs)
Clean Pull: this was supposed to be 3 reps at 95% then 3 reps at 105%, but I could only do 2 at 95%. I was just too nervous about my back today. Me really hurting my back is NOT going to help me train. Train smart, leave the ego at the door!

Spent about 20-30 minutes on just muscle-up progressions. Using my feet on the box and shooting my head through. Did 30 of these. Next week I will start working on transitions while sitting on the floor. Only 20 days left for the Muscle-Up challenge!
