Walked 18 holes of golf today and then got to the gym by 6pm. Warmed up with Crossover Symmetry Activation.
2 Snatch Push Press + 2 OHS
There was a 3 second pause in the bottom of each squat. Might be the most I’ve dropped down to my back with the push presses at 185. I started dropping the overhead squats to the ground with 145 I think because of the time overhead I didn’t want to try it. I put on my belt with 145 or 155 and the rest of those sets. The squats felt good and stable; no risk of dropping any reps.
Tall Power Snatch + OHS
Final rep may not have been a power. Previously a squat triple with 145 was a struggle and these are powers plus an overhead squat after standing up. Wore straps starting with 105. So many OHS on this day of the program. Seems to be paying off with overhead stability though.
- Sit-ups (anchored)
Michelle challenged me after she got a 5:48 today. Hadn’t done this one since March so went for it. Couldn’t believe how easy it felt spinning the dubs after using the Zeus rope a few times. Missed once after 9 reps in the set of 20 from lack of concentration, but still managed a 6 second PR with a 5:53. The sit-ups are much easier after all of the GHD work I’ve been doing. I think I could even push the pace more on them. Crazy to think I’m still able to PR this workout after almost 5 years and all the times I’ve done it. Also happy to be able to when I should be out of conditioning shape.
Had a 3 second pause above the knee on the descents. Wore straps for all sets. Heavy with the pauses!
Did Crossover Symmetry Iron Scap before leaving the gym and will do a 19 minute ROMWOD tonight.
