I worked on my should presses today instead of the back squats prescribed at the gym since I modified my Tuesdays/Thursdays to be strength days.  Week 1 (last week) was back squats and bench presses and Week 2 is deadlifts (done) and presses.

Strict Presses
45 lbs x 8 reps warmup
55 lbs x 5 reps
65 lbs x 3 reps
70 lbs x 2 reps
I had initially tried 65 lbs as my starting weight but could only get 4 reps out so I backed off and started at 55 lbs.
Then a Mini-WOD
30 double unders (I did 90 singles)
15 power snatches 55 lbs
3 rounds
Time 8:54

I worked on pullups for a bit but it was tough, even for a deadhang pullup with a 1" wide band, I can only get 5 reps out.  So I did 5, then 3, then 2 and then did 30 second holds at the top of the pull up  four times to work on engaging my muscles for that last pull to get my chin above the bar.
