    B - 500ml Ice Lemon water, 4 eggs with lemon and cinnamon. AGG

    L - AGG + 1/2 whole chicken


    WOD
    “Cindy”
    Complete as many rounds as possible in 20 mins of:
    5 pullup
    10 pushups
    15 squats

    Result
    12 rounds + 7 Pushups

    Post WOD 20g Whey Protein

    Pick up Game of Touch (40mins)


    D AGG + 2 fish fillets (450g ish), 1 head of brocolli

    PAGG before bed

    Burpees 18

    Sleep 8 hours 45 min

    Cindy + Touch + Burpees absolutely destroyed me, Quads especially due to front squats the day before. Re injured old shoulder injury that is always the result of too many pullups. Not the best sleep either, Hot + Sore + think caffeine in Green Tea extract is disrupting sleep. Might not have it tomorrow before bed.

    B - 500ml Ice Lemon water, 4 eggs with lemon and cinnamon. AGG

    L - AGG + 300g assorted cold cuts (chicken, ham, pastrami)

    Gave Blood (600ml)

    D AGG + Whole Organic Gluten Free Roast Chicken, 1 head of brocolli

    Chilli Beef Biltong 100g (all natural except worchestershire sauce)

    PAG before bed (Dropped Green Tea Extract to try improve sleep)

    Burpees 0 need to do 39 tomorrow

    Sleep 8 hours 30 min

    Was still wrecked today and gave blood so I felt a day off CrossFit was necessary, Had to get cold cuts so I could eat on the run on the way to blood donation. Was super tired when I got home, didn't feel like cooking and bought a chicken. Had a moment of super weakness at 9pm and almost bought chocolate/icecream/lollies as I was going to the local store to get cash out. Had to physically tell myself to get out of there, ended up getting biltong instead as a compromise. Sleep was much better without Green Tea extract although i'm not completely convinced that was the culprit. Won't take it before bed tomorrow but will Friday and will see what the difference is to see if that's the culprit. Got a lot of Burpees to do tomorrow, plain forgot yesterday. Pumped for 2nd CrossFit Open workout on Friday.

    Way to go on all your burpees! I only got 33 LOL

    Tomorrow night we do workout 2 as well. How do you think you will do?
    I am new at snatches, but I should get the first set of 30 and maybe some of the way into next hopefully

    I'm 2 hours away from doing the snatch workout and it's all i've been thinking about all day. My PR is 45kg so the first 30 at 35 should be fine to do in about 3-4mins. Then I'll have 5 or so mins to try and get 62.5kg. Well above my PR but i'm feeling strong with 2 days rest so who knows.

    B - 500ml Ice Lemon water, 2 eggs with lemon and cinnamon, 2 rashes bacon, 5-6 breakfast sausages, 1 bite of hashbrown. AGG

    L - AGG + half Roast Chicken


    D AGG + 12 mini Organic beef patties (500g total), 1 head of brocolli, 1 red pepper.

    S- 100g 85% Dark Organic Chocolate

    PAG before bed (Dropped Green Tea Extract again to try improve sleep)

    Burpees 39 (split over 2 hours)

    Sleep 8 hours 45 min

    Was still pretty sore today, decided to bump up the carb intake a little bit and spent a solid 40mins rolling and stretching out. Used a large full soft drink bottle as a roller which worked awesome although very painful, used a lacrosse ball for my chest.

    Getting lots of sleep is easy as long as I don't want to play COD or watch TV.

    Have the snatch workout tomorrow, comments on that are above.

    Will try the Green Tea Extract at bed tonight again to see if that is causing the problem.

    goodluck! I am about to head off.
    We practiced last night and the 35 kg was not good LOL. But then I dropped the weight and changed to the split snatch and it felt much better, so will see how I go tonight.

    Thanks. Everyone feels they are horrible at burpees, myself incuded. That's what makes them an awesome test of endurance as it's easy to end up in a dark place doing them.

    FYI the top guy in the world did 161 in 7mins, link to the video is below.

    B - 500ml Ice Lemon water, 4 eggs with lemon and cinnamon, rash bacon, AGG

    L - AGG + half Roast Chicken, handful of mixed nuts


    WOD
    OPEN WORKOUT 12 . 2

    MEN – includes Masters Men up to 54 years old
    Proceed through the sequence below completing as many reps as possible in 10 minutes of:
    35kg Snatch, 30 reps (30)
    62kg Snatch, 30 reps (0)
    75kg Snatch, 30 reps (0)
    95kg Snatch, as many reps as possible (0)


    Finished with 3-4 Power snatches at 50kg (PB)

    D AGG + 3 Free Range chicken thighs 1 head of brocolli, 1 red pepper.


    PAGG before bed

    Burpees 21

    Sleep 9 hours

    Didn't make the 62.5kg snatch, don't think I was overly close either. Smashed 30 at 35kg out in around 2mins 30 then rested for about 90 seconds then made 3 or so attempts before my coach cut me off. Finished with some 50kg power snatch which was good. Got some good sleep in in preperation for the weekend which will be a dance festival, alcohol, poor eating decisions and general chaos.

    Weekend was a blow out
    Saturday
    B- 4 eggs with cinnamon

    Early L 3 chicken thighs, 10x vodka soda limes

    D- Hotdog on a stick

    Late Night bad decisions- Ice Cream, Licorice, Pizza, Mousse, Soft Jubes. All were awesome at the time but certainly paid for them Sunday.

    Sleep 8 hours 30 mins- although wouldn't be good sleep as it was 4am to 12.30pm in a daylight room

    Sunday
    B- Finished off Pizza
    D- 1/2 Organic Roast Chicken, 1 head of Broccoli, 1 Icecream, Bag of Lollies, Cadbury Creme Egg (EASTER!)

    WOD
    80 Pressups (4x 20 every 20 mins while eating lollies to try and shuttle insulin away from fat storage)

    Burpees- 22 Saturday 23 Sunday



    I'm going to try be more honest with myself with what I eat by trying to track my weekend consumption, jumped up like 5lbs over the weekend, I know that most of it will be excess water retention due to the increase carbs and salt but it's still not a good feeling when you jump on the scales.

    Will work my butt off this week and try and get back on track.
