A Balanced Day

Upper body is kind of sore from the last couple of days. Went in at noon.

Warm-up

3 Rounds

  • 10 PVC Pass-thrus
  • 10 PVC OHS
  • 10s Triceps stretch (each arm)
  • 10s Rack stretch (each arm)

Conditioning/Endurance

1 Mile Run

Each gym is different because of their mile loop, so I’m trying not to compare today to my 6:18 from the summer at Survival Fitness. I also weigh about 15 pounds more now, which doesn’t help! I mapped out the Full Strength route on Google Maps and it’s pretty damn close to a mile, other than the fact we have to go down a big flight of stairs to start and then back up to finish. My time was 6:45. I probably started out way too fast and it caught up to me, but I’m terrible at setting a running pace. It’ll be interesting to go run a mile at the track one of these days.

Strength

5×3 Jerk

  • 5 @ 45#
  • 3 @ 95#
  • 3 @ 135#
  • 3 @ 145#
  • 3 @ 165#
  • 3 @ 185#

I started off doing split jerks and it wasn’t feeling that great in the set with 135# because of the extra time holding the bar overhead. Emily told me to do push jerks if I could handle the weights, so I did and it felt better. Makes sense to work on strength here instead of the split jerk technique. The last set was actually pretty easy, but I have no idea what I can do for push jerks now, so I had to shoot for something as a goal before I started.

WOD

3 Rounds

  • 5 Curtis P (95# – Power Clean, Lunge, Lunge, Push Press)
  • 10 Burpees

Usually it’s a squat clean in a Curtiss P, but I guess everyone had been doing power cleans in the day, so we did the same. First set of 5 was unbroken and I set the bar down once in each of the next two sets for 1-2 seconds to regrip. Short WOD so just tried to keep going. Did all of the burpees unbroken and really picked up the pace for the last 7 reps to finish out. Final time was 4:24.
