I had a friend take some video during our CrossFit strength session yesterday. I established a new PR for my front squat, 125 lbs! I took it easy yesterday, but I think I can add another 10 lbs and still maintain form so we’ll see later in the week after a bit of recovery. Afterward, I was on a total high, so at the last minute, I decided to try Rx for the WOD:
The prescribed weight for Rx was 75 lbs, 5 more than I’d done for push-press in our Skibinski Roast WOD. It was tough, but I managed to finish 6 rounds! I finally feel like I’m making some ground with increasing my weights, but I definitely still feel lacking in a few areas, mainly body weight exercises like strict pull-ups, and toes to bar. Hopefully getting stronger elsewhere starts to help my progress there.
Have you charted new fitness ground lately?
Note: I’m trying to make a better effort to catch little pieces of our CrossFit/workouts. I’m just not good about dragging the camera/phone with me.
