Tonight I learned a hard lesson, something I THOUGHT knew. I always kind of believed I knew how to scale and how to do what was best for me....I was/am wrong. Let's get into the workout.
3 Rounds of:
10 x wall squats
10 x push ups
10 x scorpions
10 x sit ups
*I had to use the "mummy" method because of lack of front rack
65#, 75#, 95#, 105#, 125#
15 x Deadlift
20 x Jump over bar
Rx - 135#
L3 - 115#
L2 - 95#
I know...I know.
135# is easy...sooo easy....too easy....135# deadlift...all day right?
My left side lower back...blasted. DONE. I was in so much pain I couldn't walk. I have NEVER felt that before. For an old fat ass, I have been pretty lucky. I have never had any problems with back or knees which are pretty common places where people age and experience pain right?
I kept my form nice and tight...correct. But after my 2nd set....I couldn't even walk. FAIL.
After the workout I rolled my back and as I am typing this, I am feeling much better.
After wards...Coach came up and simply said I went too heavy. TOO HEAVY? Come on son!
Yes...for AMRAP...the weight is light...but the volume should of made me go lighter. Maybe L3 or even L2? I dunno...
I let me ego, over confidence...I truly didnt even think about the WOD. I just saw 135# deadlifts and didn't even think about strategy or how to get it done. I let my brain fart and go away. SO STUPID.
Even if Coach told me in the beginning...I WOULD NOT HAVE LISTENED. No way...dont tell me 135# is too heavy! DONT TELL ME!
I learned today...I learned to always WOD with your BRAIN first...I should of really thought about it and scaled it accordingly to finish. I was stupid. My back...gave up when my engine was able to keep going.
