Redid 15.1
Decreased metcon from 192 to 184, but increased wgt from 172 to 180 for a PR…that felt easy. Annoyed with the decrease, balanced out w a PR… onward + upward.

15.1 143 reps/280# C&J. This revealed a glaring weakness in my core. Toes-to-bars smoked my core quick and I completely lost them. Had more in me than the C&J but ran out of time.

15.1: 160/227. Lost the jerk at 242 at last second. Would have been a 2# PR.
Tested this by doing 5 rounds on Friday and my abs didn’t recover to where I wanted them. Dissapointed but its still a whole lot better than I was last year. Overall though I felt very prepared for this workout thanks to this program.

A. Work up to 1RM Jerk
Worked up to current 1RM on Split Jerk. Hit 265# 2x. Failed 275# (bad fail — came down on my head and screwed with me)

B. 15.1
Warmup on all movements
159 reps (4 more than last time. Grip sucked on T2B, unlike last time)

15.1A
Hit 238#, failed 253# 2x.
My score from Friday is better I think: 155/247#
Any thoughts? Missed jerk each time on 253# . . .

Disappointing day. Back at it tomorrow.

Did the open workout for the first, and only, time. 5 reps short of the goal I wanted for 15.1 but overall it went well. T2B finally clicked today and all were done in sets of 5 (plan I had) and easy, except for last round where I just couldn’t hold on!

4+25 (damn those 5 reps!)
155 … 5# PR!!!
Weighed in at 132 … great day!

Redid 15.1
Friday: 6 and 270lbs
Today: 6+5reps and 275lbs
Only 5 more reps and lbs, but I think it’ll go a long way. Also weighed in at 199! Just made it.

Friday: 169 / 291#

Today: 190 / 276# (failed jerk at 296#)

Going to submit score from Friday because my CJ on 15.1A will contribute to top 3 in my gym for the regional team, whereas 190 on 15.1 will not contribute to top 3 on team.

Super frusturating day missing that jerk.

Reply to  Charles E.

I did 10/5 for two sets of T2B, then switched to 5s, instead of 5/5/5 the entire time. Over paced the workout on Friday.

I also paced my dead-lifts more today, trying to get slower, deliberate good unbroken sets that didn’t raise my HR as much as blazing through them.

I also experimented with singles on snatches on Friday … all unbroken sets today, was better for my overall score, at least on 15.1
