Today’s wod to Coca CrossFit was:
21 15 9
Hang Power Clean
Toes to Bar
The rx’d weight was 95lbs and the weight wasn’t what worried me. What worried me was my decision to use a men’s bar. why? I have little baby hands and a hook grip on a men’s bar over a women’s bar is a SIGNIFICANT difference. I describe it as being comparable to adding 30lbs to the lift.
My forearms were already cramping before I got through the full set of 21…. it was down hill from there. By the end of the workout I was practically in tears my forearms were so tight. I’m not even above saying I dropped a tear post workout I was so cramped.
Lesson I learned……. no more training with women’s bars. I dont even know what a women’s bar is anymore. When I find a kink in my armor I do what I can to attack it. Training with a men’s bar is my new staple.
