A. 165/190/202/220/230 8reps@ 202
B. Thrusters scaled to 115 + T2B 19:25

Looking at the other scores my weakness is obvious. Thrusters felt heavy at the beginning, and T2B are still being worked on, can’t get more than 3 in a row

A. 170/195/210/220/235 4@180 (felt like I got lazy here when I put the bar up and should have gone for more. Working on form in the squat and felt like I was starting to roll my back, but still disappointed in myself with the 4)
B. Scaled to 115. 5:41 – this was a good round. Thrusters intimidate me and I pushed myself on the weight.

A1. BS 205-235-255-270-285 // 9 x 255
A2. EMOM Press singles 95 to 160 (makeup from yesterday)
B. 10:35 Rx
Most that time was spent sucking wind on thrusters. Probably should have scaled, especially after the strength double whammy. But feeling stubborn today.

A.
All percentages as prescribed, 11 reps @ 80% (155)
B.
Rxd both thrusters and TTB 9:25
Did thrusters in sets of 3 for the first round. Then 3-3-2 and 3-2. That was tough! Didn’t think I could do it!
Hit a wall with the TTB last round and could only do 2 at a time, then singles by the last 4-5 reps.
Great wod!!

T2B are still being worked on, can’t get more than 3 in a row. But was happy I didn’t modify them today.

Barbells today instead of sand. 

A: 165/185/196/225/235 + 1×8 @ 205

B: 95lb at 6:30…focused on form. couldn’t find a rhythm on kipping T2B

Low back feels much better after a few minutes in deep caveman squat

Great job with sticking on all of that mobility! I know it’s not the most exciting thing to do but it sounds like you’re seeing results.

What is the basis of the %age above? Based on the new 1RM set last Monday or when the cycle started?
