13.4 is 7 minute AMRAP of:
3 Clean and jerk
6 Clean and jerk
9 Clean and jerk
12 Clean and jerk
15 Clean and jerk
18 Clean and jerk
It is a timed workout. If you complete the round of 18, go on to 21. If you complete 21, go on to 24, etc
Since it was announced on Thursday morning (Manila time), I have no choice but to do the workout on Monday morning to make it in time for the score submission deadline.
Compared to the previous workouts, I don’t have that much issues at the movements. It is a combination of weightlifting and gymnastics. For the clean and jerks, I only need to work on a 55lb-bar for my category. I can opt to do knees to elbow instead of toes to bar. I decided to stay with toes to bar as I feel more comfortable with the movement.
It was tiring! Seven minutes of work and your heads just floating as you drop on the last rep. After a few seconds on the floor, I recovered and thought it was the most awesome WOD in the OPEN.
On Tuesday morning though, as I was dressing up for my workout and feeling the burn on my core from the 13.4 workout, I realized that I didn’t log-in my score! Now, I have no record that it was AWESOME!
PS. At the back of my mind, I am actually happy to be on the low end of the scoreboard. As a competitor, I already got my shirt and my wrist wrap is on its way. I would love to be an spectator on the final throwdown. Trust me, it’s a scary feeling out there, “competing”. (It looks bad ass though, like you’re in the Actual Crossfit Games)
