This was my first ever CF competition - totally nervous leading up to it and during it too. But I exceeded all of my expectations! So happy! Finished 10th out of 31. Totally happy with that and I nearly won the Clean and Jerk ladder (2nd place). As expected, the longer metcons were going to be rough on me since the training hasn't focused on those. But I finished mid pack on those so not too shabby.
I did the floater WOD first thing in the morning. So happy I did that then. Got hot in the afternoon and the wait was long.
4 minute AMRAP
Plate burpee wall climb (35# plate, 6' high wall)
Deceptively tough. 24 reps. Good for 13/31. Exactly the number I was thinking I could get.
7 Pull ups
7 Box Jumps, 24inch
7 Slosh Pipe Overhead Squats, 30lbs 5ft long
**7 minute AMRAP
>>>Box jumps must have FULL foot on the box and FULL extension at the hip
>>>Slosh pipe, must have hands inside the caps, no resting it on your head
I had practiced this one earlier in the week. Was shooting for 6 full rounds. Got no repped a few times on the dang box jumps since the standard was a full foot on the box. But still exceeded my goal and did 6 full rounds + 7 pullups + 3 box jumps. Good for 12/31.
Clean & Jerk Ladder
You will have 45 seconds at each bar. You may make as many attempts within that time.
Womens bars: Start at 75lbs and end at 175lbs
Mens bars: Start at 135lbs and end at 295lbs
This round is scored by bodyweight % lifted
I figured I could do well on this one since it was measured against your bodyweight. I knew I had done 195# before so that would put me in a pretty good spot I figured. I actually hit 215# for a big PR so that was sweet! Actually almost cleaned 235# on my second attempt, but since I only know how to power clean, it was no dice. Easily could've caught it in a squat (got the bar high enough - and my front squat is 260#). Just no technique doing that yet... Good for 2/31!!! If there was a 225# weight I could've gotten that. And that would've won me the event!
50 Double Unders (PLEASE bring your own jump rope if you have one. If not we can supply but please turn it back in. Last comp we had over 8 stolen!)
40 Deadlifts 95/135lbs
30 Wall Balls, 14/20lbs 10 ft line
20 Toes to Bar
150m Plate Waiters Walk, 25/35lbs (NO FINGERS IN THE HOLE OF THE PLATE!!) You may switch arms at any time, but feet must stop if the plate comes down.
50 Double Unders
**12 minute cap**
My goal was just to finish this under the cap. I was actually going pretty well until the waiter's walk. That thing killed me! Took me 7 stops and 3 minutes to complete. But I did finish it under the time cap at 11:11. Good for 17/31.
Overall finish 10th out of 31 competitors!
