We then went onto bench press. A few weeks ago I pushed out 6 reps at 37.5 kg but couldn't record it as we were doing 7 reps. Today I smashed out the 37.5 kg and also did 4 reps at 40 kg. Another PB for the day!
The finisher was a partner WOD and I partnered up with a lovely girl, Gabby. The WOD was:
Partner AMRAP – 12min
6 Front Squats
3 Push Press
I was planning on doing 25 kg for this and Gabby was thinking 27.5 kg. She was willing to go down to 25 kg but I thought it was a good opportunity to push myself and we went with 27.5 kg. I found it quite tough but also doable and I finished with a score of 7 rounds + 9 DL and 4 FS. It's great to be paired up with someone who is a bit stronger as it pushes me that little bit harder.
I also got a nice compliment from one of the coaches, he commented on how I was killing it lately and have really stepped up a notch. It's always nice to get such positive feedback :-)
