Barbell Blitz (A very short recap)

Best moment: Power snatching 160, therefore clearing the ladder and hitting a PR power snatch at the same time. Also, it was awesome doing this with Megan. 
Worst moment: Fucking thrusters, man. I felt so awful during this part and I didn't hold up my end for my teammates. I wasn't supposed to do any less than five reps but by the end I was down to sets of four. This was terrible. I tried to make up for it on the cycle speed during the deadlifts. This workout was horrible. 
Best communication with a teammate: KB snatch/pistol squat workout with Brandie. I thought we did a really good job of moving quickly, transitioning, and talking to each other throughout the entire six minutes. We would always give each other plenty of notice when we were about to pass off the KB or pistols and we were always talking about how many reps we were going to do, how many we had left, etc. 
Worst communication with a teammate: N/A, because all my teammates are fit as hell and we work really well together. TRICKED YA. 

Closing thoughts:
  • They need to hold this in a different venue. It was impossible for spectators to see anything and the teams were extremely crowded during the workouts. Just bust out some extra scratch and rent out a bigger venue. 
  • I really liked all the events of this competition (except for the thrusters) 
  • Overall a very good day of competition. Disappointed with a few different things here and there (my lack of hustle on thrusters, slow cycle time during the STO/BBJ workout) but also really happy with a lot of things (160 snatch, bar muscle ups, pistols). It was a really fun day with an awesome team and I'm very proud of us. 

Time to get ready for The Open. 

Onward.

Power clean was slow today, 180 was probably one of the uglier power cleans I've done. 

Movement prep went pretty well, I focused on thrusters and bar muscle ups. I did a few snatches with an empty barbell as well. 

The rows at :10 were kind of awkward, as soon as you get going then you're already done.
