Hydra Movement: Strength is just the beginning!
T'was a day for martyrs and torn hands. But it was an awesome effort and today was a light day. Kudos to the 5 musketeers who attempted 15.1 twice - doesn't matter if they beat their scores or not, the fact that they showed great mental, and physical strength is nothing short of amazing. I'm proud of you guys and girls. The open has only just begun, and its looking beautiful already.
Couple of things I wanted to touch on:
Grip strength - We hang a lot, I mean a lot. So most of us did not notice the wear and tear this workout had on the people who do not hang - wear and tear on the hands, shoulders and forearms. From memory only 1 athlete had rips. Read up on hand-care tips here
Olympic Lifting - We Snatch, Clean and Jerk a lot. So again, getting through this workout was not as hard as it seemed to people who WOD a lot (I'm cheekily smiling as I write this here). So when this workout came along, they were a few 90% clean and jerks achieved for 15.1a and a bloody fair few PBs broken!
Again, to say I'm proud of you guys does not do justice to your effort. Keep up the great work and bring on 15.2
