A Griptastic Return

Monday was a rest day and yesterday was a travel day. After I got home my legs were feeling rough from the dance floor and long night on Monday. I was exhausted and decided not to workout. Out in the garage during lunch.

Year of the Engine – Time Trial

20:00 Airdyne

My best, though not as a test, was 11.94 km. Figured 80 RPM throughout would be a good goal as a first trial for this length of time. Was probably short of that overall, but could have gone harder. Got 12.73 km and 656 calories.

Went to the 7pm class because I was busy with a project at work all day.

Warm-up

  • 400m Run
  • 2 Rounds
    • 10 Good Mornings (PVC)
    • 10 Pass Throughs
    • 5 Kip Swings
    • 10 Lateral Hops
  • 5 Hang Power Cleans (45#)
  • 5 Deadlifts (45#)
  • 5 Hang Power Cleans (115#)
  • 5 Deadlifts (115#)

Conditioning

2 Rounds

  • 4:00 EMOM
    • 15 cal Row
  • 4:00 EMOM
    • 10 Hang Power Cleans (115#)
  • 4:00 EMOM
    • 10 T2B
  • 4:00 EMOM
    • 10 Deadlifts (185#)

No extra rest other than when you’re done with a movement each minute. I felt good at the beginning and pulled ~1700-1800 cal/hr. Then I did each movement unbroken. The second time through was a different story! I pulled ~1400 cal/hr. I did 2×5 on each minute of cleans, then 3 minutes of 2×5 with the final set of T2B unbroken. I picked up the deadlifts and my grip was shot! After doing the first round through all with a neutral grip, after doing 5, I started doing a mixed grip. I was able to go 2×5 for the first two minutes, but then I just couldn’t hold the bar, so I went 2 and 8 singles, finishing with 10 singles.

Rough one after not touching a bar since the previous Sunday.
