Friday lifting

Very challenging WOD today involving some heavy lifting. From the CrossFit Connection site:
We decided to finish up the end of the week with a nasty grind of a workout. MAKE IT HEAVY means make it worthwhile. Do it with intensity and you'll really see gains.

Training with intensity is how you see positive results in a short period of time. Unfortunately, training with intensity also sucks, hurts alot while you're doing it, can make you puke, has made some catch my drift... so not a lot of people can gut it out on a regular basis. Huge kudos to all of you who stay consistent! You know who you are!
Five rounds of:
  • 15 x Deadlifts
  • 12 x Hang Cleans
  • 9 x Front Squats
  • 6 x Push Jerk
Prescribed weight was 135lbs, but there's no way I can consistently clean that weight. Instead, I did 115lbs and it turned out to be a good idea. A couple of guys in the gym tried to do it fully prescribed and either did not finish or could not finish the required number of reps. And for those guys who successfully did it prescribed, it was a considerable challenge.

My time: 19:12. Very happy with that, and very happy with my mental approach to this one.
