hump day PR!

After assisting Big Mike's 0530, 0615, and 0700 indoor classes I continued with my strength work focus.

My legs and shoulders are still a bit tight and sore, so I rolled out and then eased into a long warm-up with rowing, OHS, pvc rotations, and pull-ups. Then did a few light sets of strict press, push-press, and 3x3 split-jerks.

I'm really starting to enjoy this lift. I asked Big Mike to watch my 165 attempt - and with tips on getting under the bar a little faster - 175 and 185 felt solid. Actually wanted to go for 195lbs but self discipline got the better of me. Gotta stick with the program! Feeling great though - any day with a PR is a good day!

Dutch Lowy split jerks 245lbs at CrossFit Central back in early 2009.

Happy hump day y'all! Peace.
