I’ve put in a ton of work this year. I’ve made progress on the peg board, gotten leg-less rope climbs, and gotten the muscle-up! So I was definitely excited to see how I would do in the Open this year. My goal is high 60th percentile (67-69%), which might be too ambitious, but gotta have goals, right? Here’s how it went:
Complete as many rounds as possible in 15 minutes of:
19 wall-ball shots, 14lb ball, 9ft target
I had attempted it three times. I didn’t feel like I did my best any time, but I did continuously do better and, in the end, I’m happy with my score. My initial submission was 216 reps, then I upped it to 217, and then I ended with 219 reps. My goal was 6 rounds and I fell 9 calories short. However, I still ended up in the 71st percentile, so goal accomplished!
Beginning on an 8-minute clock, complete as many reps as possible of:
15 squat cleans, 85 lb.
13 squat cleans, 115 lb.
And continue… (but I didn’t)
This one was tough! 115lbs is my max squat clean, so I was really hoping to get to that round of squat cleans and get… one? My toes-to-bars and double-unders have massively improved since last year. In my first attempt, I did my dubs on the wooden platform and that was… a mistake. Did it again, but I still got in my head with the toes-to-bars and only finished the first set of dubs 30 seconds faster. But I still got 8 more TTB in my second attempt. Just not enough to get to the second set of cleans. I ended up with a score of 103 which was REALLY not where I wanted to be, but I do feel like that is my best for right now. I think, maybe if I could have done it outside, I might’ve done better because I ended up getting way too hot in the gym. Ended up in the 67th percentile, which is MUCH higher than I thought with that score.
