Still No Strict Pull-ups

Feeling a little fatigued this morning.


  • Crossover Symmetry Activation
  • 3 Sets
    • 15s Bar Hang
    • 10 PVC passes
    • 10 Squat Jumps
  • 8 Shoulder Press (45#)
  • 6/6 OH Reverse Lunge (45#)
  • 8 Shoulder Press (75#)
  • 6/6 OH Reverse Lunge (75#)


E3M – 6 Sets

  • 8 Shoulder Press (95#)
  • 6/6 OH Reverse Lunge (95#)

Last two sets got rough with all that time overhead.

Gymnastics Strength

E2M – Ring Rows (4 Sets, feet elevated)

Start with a max reps set and then the other 3 sets are at 50% of that number. I got 16 so my drop sets were 8s. Tried to do strict pull-ups while warming up and still a no-go for my shoulder. I was able to do a couple of chin-ups, but still don’t feel the greatest. I’ll keep resting it and working on rehab stuff. :-/


  • 5-4-3-2-1 Cleans (165#)
  • 5-4-3-2-1 Deadlifts (165#)
  • 10-8-6-4-2 Pull-Ups

My goal was to pick a challenging weight to go unbroken. Original thought looking at this workout was 185, which I think is doable, but would require more rest between the pull-up bar. I did everything unbroken with 165# even going straight into the deadlifts with my hook grip, which sucked and made holding the bar for pull-ups more challenging. I had to do kipping because butterfly make it feel like my shoulder is going to fall off. Finished in 3:26. Should have moved faster between barbell and rig and back.

Did Crossover Symmetry Iron Scap and will hit ROMWOD tonight.
