Thursday - Part 1

5 Two minute rounds of:

7 Push jerks (Men 165 lbs, Women 115 lbs)
Max double unders with remaining time
Rest 1 minute b/w rounds.

My double unders:  21/21/35/31/34 - total of 142
Used 85# for PJ

Fun workout.  No way I want to do this one with 115.  I am able to do the jerks unbroken at 85#.  I tried this once before with 115, and ended up dropping weight in the second round.  Today I just started with 85 and kept it.  I also tried my new "speed rope".  Not a big fan just yet.  It's so much lighter than my good ol' Buddy Lee rope.  I switched back to the Buddy Lee on round 3.  Notice the difference in my numbers?  Yeah...   I'll have to take the speed rope home and practice with it.  Or give it away.  :)

Strength today was Push Jerk (from the rack)
Rep Scheme:   5-3-2-2-1-1-1
My loads: 65-75-85-95-105-110-125

Wasn't feeling super strong, but Jennifer L. lifted with me and she pushed me to do more than I wanted. That last lift at 125 felt surprisingly good!
