Deads & Dubs

Yep, my shins are still a little sore today. My shoulders are wrecked from about 200 burpees in the last two days, so didn’t feel up for doing “Helen” at Intuition. Worked out in the garage at lunch time.

Warm-up

  • Crossover Symmetry Activation
  • 2 Sets
    • 5s of StrongFit Tricep & Bicep Openers (8#)
    • 250m Ski Erg
  • 10 Deadlifts (45#)
  • 20 DU
  • 5 Deadlifts (135#)
  • 20 DU
  • 5 Deadlifts (225#)
  • 20 DU

Conditioning

Felt like doing some double unders, so found this from the BTWB Fitness Level workouts in the Heavy category.

3 Rounds

  • 10 Deadlifts (275#)
  • 50 Double Unders

Goal was unbroken deadlifts and there really wasn’t any though of stopping. Those went smooth. Missed at 44 dubs in the first round, unbroken 2nd round, and then heart rate was getting up there, which let to 2 misses in the final round. Finished in 3:31, which was good for a ranking of 95 on BTWB. Definitely one that falls in with my strengths.

Accessory

E3M – 6 Sets

  • 6/6 Landmine Rows (75#)
  • 10 Weighted GHDs (20#)

Conditioning Part 2

  • 500m Ski Erg

Wanted something quick and this fit. Hadn’t really ever done it other than during some intervals for a 1:45. I quickly fell into a 1:34-1:36 / 500m pace and held there. Tried to go faster in the final 200m but couldn’t seem to get that pace to drop. Finished in 1:35.3, which ranked as a 91 on BTWB.

I tend to procrastinate a lot when I workout solo in the garage. I don’t know how people do it all the time. I wouldn’t get anything accomplished if I didn’t go to the gym with other people.
