Back in the Gym After a Lot of Golf

It was a fun golf weekend and then I walked 18 holes yesterday as well to play four days in a row. Should have exercised yesterday instead because I couldn’t string together good shots! Out in the garage during lunch today.

No B.S. Bench Press

  • 9×45#
  • 6×95
  • 6×135
  • 3×175
  • 3×205
  • 3×225
  • 5x3x240

Haven’t got in a workout from the program since last Sunday, but did get a little benching in during a metcon least week. This second cycle doesn’t seem to be progressing as well, which may have something to do with my inconsistent training lately because of so much golfing. Today’s working sets should have been in the 240-245 range but I stuck with the low end and it was plenty difficult. I’d probably feel more confident with a spotter instead of just spotter arms on the rig.

Went to the gym at 4pm. Hadn’t been there since Thursday!

Warm-up

3 Sets

  • 10 Reverse Hypers (160#)

2 Rounds

  • 5 Strict Pull-ups
  • 10 Box Jumps (20″)
  • 15 Sit-ups
  • 20 PVC Pass Throughs

Strength

  • 5 Split Jerks
  • 5 Weighted Pull-Ups (15#)

Since it was set for 5 working sets, I did the pull-ups after the first five sets of jerks to get them out of the way. All TnG sets on the jerks where I went right in to the dip when lowering the bar. Wore my belt for 155# and up, doing 45-95-115-135-155-175-195#. Obviously could have gone heavier since I was still able to TnG them, but that was enough after bench pressing earlier.

Conditioning

15:00 AMRAP

  • 8 Pull-Ups
  • 8 Alt. DB Snatch (50#)
  • 8 Box Jumps (30″)

The Rx was a 70# dumbbell for the snatches, which we don’t even have and isn’t necessary unless you’re a Sanctionals type athlete.

I wore grips and didn’t use the holes so I could easily flip them around for the snatches. Was able to do every set of pull-ups unbroken. I bitched out on a set or set and a half of snatches during the first half of the AMRAP and changed hands at the ground for those. Otherwise I switched hands in the air for the rest. The box jumps were just slow because I was stepping down and then would take a step back from the box as well. Got through 8+18.

I thought about doing one of the Year of the Engine workouts in the evening, but I was tired.
