I'm terrible at gym math!!

It has been a very restful weekend and I am about ready to jump back into the strength and the ring work. All I did today was my WOD and worked on my back squat, still wanting to take it a bit easy. We did cleans today and my arms began to ache again, but not as bad as they did Friday night. A whole lot of cleans and muscle-up work are the culprits for my aching arms.
I didn't do as well on my WOD this morning as I wanted to, but I think that's partly because I have a cold and am not 100%. Another reason is because I can't count! Geez!

I think I miss added my weight on the back squat on Friday. I think I may have back squatted 185 instead of 175. I am pretty sure, but not 100%. I am terrible at gym math! What happened is that I think I put 2 35lb plates on my 45lb bar and wrote it down as 105 instead of 115 and then adding from there.
Today, when we worked on our Back Squats, we were working off % of our 1RM. 5 Reps at 65%, 5 reps at 75% and then 85% as many reps as possible (150lbs). I did this last set 9 times. When my coach saw me do this 9 times, he said "I think your 1 REP MAX is a bit higher than you think." Hmmm, I think so too!
I think I will try again next week for my 1 Rep Max and make sure I have it right. Either way, the strength training I have been doing this past month has been tremendous in building my strength!

Today's WOD
7 Rounds
7 Power Cleans, 65% 1Rep Max (85lbs)
7 Burpees


On round 2 and halfway through round 3 I was doing 8 reps instead of 7! See, I can't even keep my rep count right!
