Sometimes when you put too much pressure on yourself to perform well, it ruins the fun of everything. The fun of crossfit and weightlifting for me is being around people who think the same way I do: they want to bust ass, get stronger, and take things seriously; but they don’t take it too seriously. Lately, I have been taking things way too seriously and acting like the world will end if I don’t make some significant gains. Dealing with rough training days is really difficult and it’s hard to bounce back. I’ve been mixed up with my program these last couple days… I’ve had to adjust weight, what I’m doing, etc. because I’m just not feeling well and my head isn’t in it. Today was another very “blah” day, which I’m leaving behind me and never looking back at!
Clean and Jerk: Work up to a heavy single, take a little bit of weight off, and did 5 sets of doubles
Deadlift: 1 set x 3 reps at 70%, 1 set x 3 reps at 80%, 1 set x AMRAP at 90%
Strict Pull Ups: 60
Then messed around with some empty bar tabata bottom to bottom thrusters and pistols and burpees/air squats with a 50 pound weight vest. That shit was heavy!
Jerks felt pretty strong. And Deadlifts felt strong-ish. I just really didn’t feel like doing anything. Yesterday and today were no-metcon days, so tomorrow will be a metcon day plus of course some snatching and squatting.
