Today was a great day!

Snatches felt excellent, I had no misses and each rep was crisp and solid. Overhead squats were still a bit shaky but better than last week. I also snatched 160 just to give myself a confidence boost for the competition, and it was the easiest 160 snatch of my life. Where was this confidence last Friday when I was doing the snatch gauntlet? I'm sitting on a 170 PR, it is bound to happen any time now. 

Snatch-grip deadlifts were tough but better than last week. 

Strict handstand push ups were so easy today! What the heck. They were easily unbroken every set. Toes to bar were unbroken for the first three sets, then 8/4 for sets four and five. I felt really good throughout this whole workout. 

DB external rotation kind of aggravated my right shoulder a bit, going to do some mobility and it should take care of it.

260 for a double! I am so happy with how my back squats have been progressing over the past few weeks. This is only 20 pounds under my max and it wasn't very difficult. 

The workout wasn't great, I was actually pretty disappointed with this. I thought I would be able to finish this under the time cap. Muscle ups were 5/2 the first round and 3/2/2 the second round. The problem was the wall balls. On the first round I broke them up 20/13/10/7 with way too much rest between sets. During the second round I broke them up even more. I tried to pick up the pace once I realized I didn't have much time left but I was five short before time ran out. Merrrrr. I felt fatigued on the muscle ups and my breathing wasn't great. I should be able to finish this in under 10 minutes.

Split jerks were much better than last week, shoulders were not nearly as fatigued. I worked up to 190 easily. 

The Wodapalooza workout was HORRIBLE. This was the absolute worst. OMG. I think this is the worst workout I've done in a very long time. Burpees were pretty quick. I broke up the snatches 7/5 and I was already breathing hard when I got to the thrusters. Those were really tough. Before the workout started I thought I would be able to break up the thrusters 10/5 but I ended up doing 5/4/6 and I was definitely resting too much between sets. By the time I got to the assault bike I was already feeling pretty bad, and the assault calories dragged out forever. I legitimately thought I was going to vomit at one point. This hurt so much. I rolled around on the ground for a solid five-ten minutes when this was over, and my time wasn't even that good! It took me a long time to recover from this. This was just terrible. 

I was still feeling nauseous from the workout when I started my NFT stuff. I decided to try to hip extensions instead of reverse hypers since RH have a tendency to make me want to throw up in my mouth. I did one hip extension and thought I was going to puke. I just did the side planks and then sat on the bike for five minutes.
