Thanks Josh and Tex for making it out!

Tex said...

3 reps - 45-50
2 reps - 55-60
1 rep - 65-70

Jerk was not good today. I maxed out at 155. My legs are just so sore that I am having a hard time getting down under the weight. Another day. Really small crew this AM. Probably the smallest I have ever seen.

Pull-ups (here's a goat)...
3rps 10-15
2rps 20-25
1rps 35-45(f)-40


Tex, I think all the different schedules right now add to the low attendance at 0530 62room. There were about 8 at the MWR gym at lunch today. We'll get the big B&G crowd again in August.

Pullups: 25-35-40-50-60-70(PR)
Push Jerk: 115-135-145-150(f)-150(f). Didn't feel comfortable dropping under the bar, went back to 115 and really focused on getting under the weight.

I made up yesterday's WOD first: 11:04 as Rx'd. The burpees destroyed me at this altitude. Tex, how long did it take you at USAFA to acclimate?

3 x 25-35
2 x 45-55
1 x 60

I ran out of time so I didn't get to do the jerks.

Pull ups: 30 40 50 60 80(f) 80
Push jerk: 135 155 185(f) 185(f) 175(f) 175

It took me a bit to get enough confidence to get under the weight in my jerk.

JWhips, I was mostly acclimatized within 2 weeks, but some things can never be done at the same intensity at altitude. There are limits to your body's ability to process oxygen in a low-pressure environment.

First time doing the Push Jerk for weight. A few were more press than jerk, I'll continue to work on it.
