Week Recap

10 Nov

Wow, this week been hectic! I’ve been so busy with school, taking care of a sick dog, and keeping up with CrossFit. In Oly we’ve been doing the Smolov Squat Routine but modified due to how many times we meet a week. When beginning this Routine we found out what our max back squat was. On that day, my max one rep back squat was #145. Personally, I knew that I could go way heavier but mind f*#%ed myself out of squatting anymore. Does this happen to anyone else?

As the Squat Routine progresses, I’m testing my limits and learning that I am stronger than I think. Above is a video when we did 8 sets of 4 reps which I did at #130 (and my one rep max was #145). Yep, makes no sense at all. In another week we will find out what our new one rep max will be and I’m curious to see how far I can push it.


There was a 40% off coupon at Reebok Outlet stores floating around the internet so I figured it was a calling from the Olympic Lifting gods. It was time for me to get a pair of Reebok Lifters. They are Uform so I was able to put them in the oven for a custom fit. I wore them for the first time during an all lifting WOD and they felt pretty different, seeing as I have never tried lifting in anything but my Nanos or Vibrams. But damn I love the sound of these shoes slamming on the wood paneling when doing a snatch.

I’ll end this post with a little bit of Paleo food porn…
