Part A was an EMOM of 5 front squats. I went fairly light today and tried to work on my squat technique. It has been noticed that I favour my right side when squatting as my hip flexors are very tight (the joys of having a desk job). I am working on my mobility as well as getting massages but I also need to train my body to squat evenly. I started the workout at 25 kg and increased my weight every 3 minutes finishing at 32.5 kg.
Part B was Jackie. I can safely say that I wasn't looking forward to the row and thrusters after Part A but I was reasonably happy with how I went. Rowing is not my forte but I tried to maintain a consistent stroke rate. I broke the thrusters into sets of 10 until I got to 30 reps and then broke them into 5's. I tried to minimise my rests but I think this is something I can continue to improve.
I hadn't recorded my last attempt at this WOD into my phone therefore I had an old time and scaling to go off. I chose to use the purple band with my pull ups not realising that we did this WOD a few months ago and I did an orange band that time. The pull ups felt okay, I know I wasn't getting into the superman position particularly well as I have mobility issues in my back and shoulders and my forearms tightened up as they are doing everytime I do pull ups which affects my grip.
I finished the WOD nearly 50 seconds faster than my last attempt with the same scaling. Got to be happy with that!
