    WOD Fathers XLR8 this morning!

    I must admit I enjoy playing with the tyres but it’s the other stuff that goes with it that makes it hard, like clapping push ups and loads of running! Todays XLR8 prescription was:
    3 RFT of
    – 1.6km run
    – 12 tyre flips
    – 21 clapping push ups
    Managed to get it done in 27:44. Awesome work every one else, a great work rate was displayed by every one.

    Don’t forget if you want more of this stuff XLR8 has been added in to the timetable on Mondays and Fridays as well!

      Good job Cath. Really impressed with your squat progress too.

      Get this PR in your training diary now. Whoop!

    A) Hit my current 1RM of 52.5, but arms did the ole press out on me at 54kg. Must get more angry on those jerks!
    B) Think i should’ve gone heavier on the Front Squat – scaled back the 80% as it would have ended up being my 1RM Clean weight so went to 37.5kg which was possibly a bit too comfortable in hindsight! 12kg KB for push press.
    Time: 10:45 – all unbroken sets :) Thanks Janelle for the push at the end of my last run to get me in the door!

    XLR8 – Those Tyre warm-ups were great for my heals, set me up for nicely some good running!

    Tyre Flips – 1st round chose a small tyre as I was worried about the clapping push-ups! 2nd round got directed by Alex to use a tractor tyre because if you are doing it right it shouldn’t tax your arms too much…

    Clapping push-ups I can do but slowly. I have to break them up into sets and refresh my arms.

    Enjoyed the running, energy levels returning in that department on Paleo :)

    XLR8 – The tyre warm-up was a good warm up for the legs

    Felt good on all of the runs. Did the tyre flips with the bug daddy tyres for 2 rounds (that shit got heavy) then thankfully badger took my spot so i got the next one down. Clapping push were not great at all so after the first round subbed them for normal push ups.

    Ended up doing the 3 rounds in 25:58

    Today is a good day to lift!

    C& J finally broke through 50kg and PR’d at 53.5kgs. I reckon I could’ve gone slightly heavier, maybe even get up to 55kg, but 53.5 was already quite heavy for me. The Jerk, interestingly enough, wasn’t the issue – it’s cleaning that weight off the floor! Me and Tila did a racked Split Jerk last week, and got my new 1RM for that, which was 60kgs, so I know I can handle more overhead, it’s just getting good technique and explosive power for the clean.

    Metcon 12.10

    Did about 60% of my FS, which was 40kgs. Like Asuka, my 80% is very close to my 1RM clean (which I also just did this morning!) So scaled back to a bearable weight. MTL did notice a bit of weight going front, need to consciously get weight on heels. 12kg DBL KB PP – also a bearable weight. Scaled back on the run to 200m. Overall a good WOD for me, Still dislike running though :)

    Enjoy your Thursday everyone! Day 7 on Paleo, keep it up folks!
