'Cause I'm wanted... DEAD or alive...

Today's musical selection!!!! Until I get the time to write you're just going to have to GUESS what we did today... ;) Enjoy your six degrees of Kevin Bacon! :P

This was one NASTY little metstrength wod. Jerry is just so good at putting together these little bits of nastiness. I shudder to think about what he is really capable of. The wod looked a bit like this.

5 rft
5 deadlifts (165)
10 push-ups
20 air squats

This really is a deceiving workout. The numbers are relatively low, and so are the rounds, but still this smoked me. To go from air squats right back into deadlifts? Ugh. Not nice. To be fair though, the push-ups didn't feel too bad, and the squats were fine. But for whatever reason, deadlifts and I just can't seem to get along. Maybe we're like oil and water? Maybe we just don't mix. My arms are so disproportionately strong when they're compared to my legs. It's frustrating sometimes. I know I should work my weaknesses, but I just can't seem to get a good feeling on deadlifts.

I'm fine on 1 rep maxes, but when I try to tie reps together, I don't keep the same posture, and then I round out and end up with a sore back. You know... with CF there's always something to work on...
