    OHS (5) 15-35-45-55 and then my wrist starting getting really weak

    Humbling Monday morning WOD. Adding strict pull-ups to my long list of things to get better at.

    WU

    3 x OHS
    65-75-85(x2) – 70-70 My OHS’ have not improved in the last year, and I would even go to say they have gotten worse? I think I need to work on the shoulder position more.

    WOD 3 rounds:
    -15 Shoulder to Overhead (Push Jerk) 85#
    -15 Strict chin up with black band – did chin ups because I have a hard time to do pullups without kipping
    -15 situps

    Time: 10:23

    Wall stretch 3 x20 secs

      1. Lora

        Congrats on your PR! Great job!

        Regarding your OHS’s, have you tried doing them with a dowel but facing the wall (and close to the wall, of course)? Really helps you get that upright position. I’m not sure what part of the OHS you are struggling with….so the unsolicited advice I’m giving you is kind of a shot in the dark. 😉

    So that was…difficult. Pullups – even with the band – are just not getting easier for me.

        Re: pullups… What are you doing in your warmup for pullups? Can you talk to one of us about a plan to get better at them? We can help!

    @Home (noon)

    EMOTM 5 mins HSPU (kip) = 23 (7-7-3-3-3) … fell middle of 3rd set… rest were tough.

    WOD “Burping Angie” (scaled to 50 reps instead 100)
    – 50 each: burpees, pushups, situps, squats = 9:30

    (Arms were toast after HSPU, pushups took forever could easily sub 8 this…)

    ———————————————————-

    @CFM (645pm)

    Deadlift WU 5-3-2-1 (135-225-275-315)
    EMOTM 5 mins Deadlift 365# = 6 (2-1-1-1-1)
    Deadlift PR attempt 415# = not even close!

    WOD scaled (R1&2 Tuck Pullups, R3 Kip+Situps) = 12:25

    Very humbling WOD, strict pullups in a WOD are already tough, without the “L” thing in there. Liked the “tuck” scale, first time I see this. Good job everyone! Thanks for the coaching Amanda!

    Sorry for accidently taking your bar Eric!

  23. Amanda

    WOD with 75#, first round of pullups strict, 2nd & 3rd were kipping.

    Time = 13:36

    Last January was 10:55, with 55# and all my pullups were kipping. I’ll take it as a small improvement, I guess?

    1. Lora

      Small improvement??? Stop being so modest! That’s a big jump in weight and strict pull ups are freakin’ hard! Well done Amanda 🙂
