then 5 Rounds:
25 Pull Ups
7 Push Jerks 62.5kg / 40kg
My initial thoughts were to push jerk 15 kg and I wasn't sure about my band selection but as we were short 15 kg bars I went with 20 kg and stupidly decided to push myself with my pull ups and went purple band (silly, silly girl!)
We went through rowing technique a few weeks ago and I decided to try it out. I was a little slower than normal but I was more rested as I tried to use more power in my stroke and rest totally on the way back. I think this helped me as I went into the pull ups. These were super hard and I was breaking them up almost instantaneously. I regretted my band option straight away. The push jerks were pretty good and I didn't have to break them at all, in fact, I felt quite strong in them but unfortunately with only 7 of them the pull ups came around way too quickly.
I ended up doing 3 rounds in just over 16 minutes. I most probably could have chucked another round in there but my pull ups were pretty ugly by the end of the 3rd round and border line no-reps. It's funny how after each workout I always think I could have done more, I think that's what keeps me going back ... it's that need to prove to myself that I can do better. In saying that, hanging out my sheets on the washing line was a challenge when I got home and my forearms feel like they are going to explode. I love that feeling :-)
