Over these 8 weeks I PRed on Crossfit Total by 50#s.
- Back Squat went from 195 to 225(used to be my least favorite, now its one of my very favorites#BOX SQUATS)
- Deadlift went from 255 to 270
- Shoulder Press went from 95 to 100 Congrats to my teammates Jess and Nyki Nyk! Great work ladies! I also understand my friend Diego Rafael Centeno will be in the next session - CRUSH IT like you do everything else!
Every Wed. from 6:30am to 7:30am over the past month I have also had the privilege of training Oly Lifting w/ Coach Zachary Thiel at RedBlack Gym. I feel more confident in stepping up to the platform, and approaching the bar. I am learning the rituals and the rythms I do before each lift(just like shooting a free throw). I am also learning the cues that resonate w/me and the ability to watch my classmates and the cues they respond best to. Instead of THINKING way too much and overanalyzing in my head, I have confidence in really listening to Zach... then attacking, "BE AGGRESSIVE!" I am finding power that I didn't know I had. I look forward to stepping up on the platform and doing everything in my power to execute that lift. Its right NOW or never. Its gotten in my blood and I am discovering a LOVE FOR BARBELLS. Thank you Zachary!
....One last thing... I got my first muscle up!!!!
THANK YOU TEAM!!! Week 2 of Crossfit open!!! 3-2-1 GO!!
