Friday 12.6: Cleans, 15min amrap

Friday. Hang power clean triples (max 80kg). Metcon, 15min amrap of: 10 db thruster (2x12.5kg), 10 burpee, 10 t2b. Result, 220 reps

We were going for a dinner and Escape Room with my colleagues after work so we planned together with Jouni to leave early so we'd have enough time for a workout. There wasn't too much time so it was quick cleans and then a metcon we hit together. Got to say I'm proud of this guy making his way to the gym again. He's taken a good step further in his fitness, and I'd like to be there with him on his journey!

  • Hang power clean triples (50, 60, 70, 75, 80kg)
Didn't remember it anymore that the knurls on the barbells at our work place's gym are very sleek. They are downright slippery, especially without chalk (which I naturally forgot home). So yes, I had good excuses for keeping the weight light =) Took some triples up to only 80kg, and then one set of 10 touch'n'go reps at 60kg. It was more difficult to hold the grip on the bar but for these weights it was still okay with hook grip.

Fastest kid ever?

Metcon. Result, 220 reps (7 rounds + 10 thruster)
  • 15min amrap of:
  • 10 dumbbell thruster, 2x12.5kg
  • 10 burpee
  • 10 toes-to-bar
Jouni had a bit of a different style metcon but the time domain was identical. He had burpees, thrusters and lunges. It was good to have a friend hit it at the same time to share the pain. He had done squats before so it was no doubt his legs would take a lot of hammering in the workout.

The dumbbells were light for sure, and the thrusters were actually the easiest part of the entire wod. I wanted to keep it intentionally low so that this would resemble totally of a bodyweight workout. My shoulders were a bit tired from yesterday which I realized only when having done couple of rounds burpees / t2b's. It felt heavier than normally to push myself back from the ground, and the stretching movement when lowering toes from the pull-up bar, and simultaneously pushing head through the shoulders also burdened shoulders.

After the 15 minutes were done, we had to get going right away as we were about to drive to downtown Helsinki for a dinner and Escape Room. The idea is that you get locked into a room, and with the help of various hints you have a certain amount of time to get out of the room. It was 60 minutes in our case, and we finally made it with 30 seconds left in the clock. What an adrenaline doze to make it in the last moments! Fun day!
