Area Flooding

I got some super sleep with about 9.5 hours last night and woke up to massive flooding in the surrounding areas. Luckily I’m five miles from the Tittabawassee River. My body feels pretty good. Out in the garage at 4pm.

Warm-up

  • 3:00 SkiErg (635m)
  • Steamboats

Conditioning

15:00 AMRAP – 1-2-3…

  • HSPU
  • Burpee
  • Power Clean (115/80#)

Thinking back, this is 3x as long with one more movement, compared to five minutes of burpees and HSPU last month, when I did 7+10. Definitely required more pacing today. I started out at a pretty solid pace though and was through round six around 5:00. I had done all my handstand push-ups unbroken at that point. Then I started breaking them up, going 4-3, 4-4, 3-3-3, 4-3-3, 6-2. Final score was 10+8. I was able to do every set of cleans unbroken, which felt good.

Strength / Accessory

4 Sets

  • 8 DB Shoulder Press (35#)
  • 50m Double DB OH Carry (35#)

Holding two dumbbells overhead is a real mobility test!

4 Sets

  • 6/6 Single Arm DB Bench Press (50#, w/ rotation)
  • 6 DB Bench Press (50#)

This was much harder than I expected.

3 Sets

  • 12 DB Underhand Bench Press (40#)
  • 24 Alt Seated Underhand Raise (20# DBs)

Gymnastics

Later in the evening I did five minutes of practice doing frog stands to work on hand balance. Then I also did this long hold after a bit of rest to get a video for the ‘gram.
