Spend 6-8 minutes working on overhead position with Trigger point balls only (don’t go hide by the rubber bands on the pull-up bar!) Then execute the following for five minutes, adding load to the bar progressively until at work-weight:
2 shoulder press,
3 push-press,
4 Push-Jerk



Complete as many rounds as possible in 20 minutes of:
115 pound Push press, 10 reps
10 KB Swings, 1.5 pood
10 Box jumps, 24 inch box

Compare to 100929.

6-8 minutes time spent applying the trigger point ball to the low back bits. (sit on it)

    8 rounds at 95lbs

    Glad to be back after the flu.

    9+9 rx’d

    PR by 1 rnd + 9 reps, and last time we used racks instead of cleaning from the ground as we did today.

    Thanks to Tracy for reminding me to dip into the next PP as I was bringing the weight down each time. No idea why I don’t remember those simple things that can make huge differences.

    The Book sounds very interesting. It would be great to read and discuss as a group!

    WOD: 8Rnds @ 50# & 20″
    The push press was VERY hard on my lower back towards the last half of the WOD. Lots of heat and stretching tonight!

  4. Karen says:

    At home today and not very motivated. 8+6 as rx’d. LOTS of room to improve!

  5. Karen says:

    Oh! I forgot. I had to use a 35lb dumbbell vs 1 pood kettlebell, if that matters.

  6. RyanP says:

    10 rds + 17 @ 85#

  7. katieg says:

    7+5 as rx’d … heavy for me w/o the best form, but I needed a heavy one to challenge me mentally to prep for Fran… 65# will feel light! (Ya right!)

  8. stacey says:

    8+6 @45#, 1 pood KB, and 18″ box…20″ box still scares me, haha

  9. Penelope says:

    8 + 22 (scaled to 55#, 20″)

  10. Kerri says:

    8 rds +21 as rx’ed

    PR by 1rd +14 (from the last Jack in October), but like Tye said, it was a little different last time. Women’s rx’ed weight last time was 85# in addition to PP being from the racks.

    I think the soreness of Murph is creeping in.

  11. Tye says:

    Soreness from Murph has certainly started sitting in, could also be from my dumbarse not taking a day off for 8 days.

    Is it ok for me to come in during the 6 am class and do some rowing for some active rest?

  12. Carson says:

    7 rounds, scaled to 55#.

    I did all seven rounds on the 24″ box though…first time ever jumping 24″!
