Good Monday!

As many rounds as possible in 15 minutes of:

5 Thrusters (Men 95 lbs, Women 65 lbs)
7 Hang power cleans
10 Sumo Deadlift High Pulls

My rounds: 5 + 4 SDHP, as Rx'd

I liked this WOD, but I have really lost the ability to do SDHP in rapid succession. I got so winded on them. They used to be one of my favorites. Still enjoy them but I really had to split them up this morning.

Today's warm up included a "tabata mashup" of pull ups, sit ups, push ups and squats. Here are my numbers from that:

pull ups: 7-6-6-6
sit ups: 10-10-10-10
push ups: 7-7-7-7
squats: 11-10-10-10

And, after 6 cycles of Wendler, we got to go for a new one rep max on Shoulder Press. My original 1 rep max at the beginning was 80. Today I set a new PR of 90 lbs!

I have to say, I am continually amazed at some of the athletes at our box. Anthony is just crazy fit...crazy!! He had a one rep max shoulder press of 225 lbs and from where I was standing, he made it look easy. Then there's Christina. I kept up with her for 5 reps and then she was finishing round 2 before I finished round one. Incredible! There are so many more people that are amazingly strong and fast...really encourages me to try harder seeing them doing so well.
