OH I love to Squat!

October 1, 2012

I have been really happy with all the Oly lifting that I have been doing lately. I typically have my skill sessions on Thursday nights and Saturdays where I work Oly, but M has been adding a lot of group oly every day and there has been quite a bit incorporated into the WODs. I feel like my technique is improving and with M and K able to watch us as we break down the movements slowly it has really been helping a lot. Today we worked 3 stop snatches again. I have been trying to creep up my weight for the skill session slowly than go at the heavier weight during my skill session on other days. I want to be sure to get the technique perfect before going too heavy and not being able to turn back.

It always makes me a happy lady to see OH squats in a workout. I realize that probably makes me pretty strange amongst most people. OH squatting isnt really a "favorite" for many. Todays WOD was pretty heavy weight for them, but I was determined to Rx it and I was determined to get all 21-15-9 rounds unbroken for them. I had that in my head from the get go and thats all it took. I powered through as hard as I could. for each of the rounds I snatched the weight right up and found a focal point on the floor. Once I was locked in I got all of the reps unbroken! Felt amazing.

Another great day a CFW!  Found this image and it make me smile... when my two worlds collide!!
