CFT - Day 79

Today is another lifting day. CrossFit Total day to be exact. This WOD is a great way to measure improvement/progress. Here is my last time doing it.

5 min. jog
5 min. jump rope
10 push-ups
10 jumping pull-ups
20 ball sit-ups
10 KTC's
10 HSPU progressions (shins on bench)

10 Burpees
+ 9 Burpees from yesterday (forgot to do them!)

Back squat, 1 rep
Shoulder Press, 1 rep
Deadlift, 1 rep

Total: 275
BS - 75
SP - 65
DL - 135 (PR!)

I'm super pumped after doing this. I had a 60# improvement over the last time I did the CFT. And to top it all off, I am SOOOO close to a dead-hang pull-up. I used a little momentum by popping up on my heels, but other than that, the pull-up was ALL me!!! :) I was even able to do it a few more times to show Adam.

Adam decided to throw some weight around and do deadlifts when he got home. He threw 265# on the bar and pulled it no problem. His form was not the best, but he could lift it relatively easy. I have to repeat to myself that I can only compete with myself...and I didn't let this dampen my sense of accomplishment. :)

Side note: I could not figure out the total weight on the bar tonight for some reason. The ability to add the numbers was beyond me... maybe I didn't eat enough protein today??

Congrats on your DL PR! :-) That's awesome.

I like your quote, too. It's important not to get lost in comparing ourselves to others. (it's hard not to, I know).
