Hot in the Basement

My back was a little tight this morning, but much better than the previous two days and it didn’t bother me much in bed. Another 100% day on my WHOOP sleep score. Went to the 4pm class.

Warm-up

  • 2:00 Row (40 cals)
  • 3 Rounds
    • 5 HR Push-ups
    • 10/10 Arm Circles
    • 10 Air Squats
    • 10/10 Leg Swings

Conditioning

  • 10:00 Time Cap – 15-15-12-12-9-9
    • cal Row
    • DB Thrusters (20# DBs)
  • 3:00 Rest
  • 10:00 Time Cap – 10-20-30-40-50
    • H2H KBS (53#)
    • Air Squats
  • 3:00 Rest
  • 5 Rounds
    • 1:00 Turkish Get-ups (26#)
    • 1:00 Flutter Kicks

I scaled down the dumbbells from 35# and it was a good choice with my back. Allowed me to stay unbroken and finish in 7:58. I tried to row around 1,200 cal/hr the entire way.

In the second workout I scaled down from American swings and went unbroken. Took me 9:28.

In the third I moved quick on my get-ups. I’m pretty sure I did another get-up in some of my rounds. I always screw up my counting with the TGU by not remembering if I should count at the top or bottom of the rep, when I should clearly wait until I complete the entire rep to count it. I did all sets of 30 for the flutter kicks with short rests and did not do them in the hollow hold position. I logged 8-8-8-8-10 and 90-90-90-90-120 for my scores.

It’s actually kind of nice being limited in the basement while my back recovers, where we don’t have any barbells. It’s hot as hell down there though.
