Gymnasty Thrusting

Out in the garage around 11. I warmed up with a 3:00 row (750m).

Engine Builder – Anaerobic

10 Rounds

  • 20s Row
  • 1:40 Rest

Didn’t even break a sweat and got 31 meters more than last month with 116-116-118-119-119-119-119-119-119-119 meters. I don’t remember it being this “easy” the other times I’ve done it.

Went to the 4pm class.

Accessory

  • 3×15 RH (90#)

Warm-up

  • 500m Row
  • 2x Tabata
    • Air Squats
    • Front Rack Stretch w/ PVC
    • Kip Swings
    • PVC Passes
  • 5 Thrusters (45#)

Gymnastics & Strength

  • E2M – 3 Rounds
    • 10 Pull-ups
    • 3 Thrusters (95-115-135#)
  • E2M – 3 Rounds
    • 8 C2B Pull-ups
    • 2 Thrusters (155-175-185#)
  • E2M – 3 Rounds
    • 3 Bar Muscle-ups
    • 1 Thruster (195-205-215#)

This was fun! No extra rest between the extra transitions other than what’s left in your two minute window. I was able to do all of the gymnastics movements unbroken and felt really good, especially not having done a bar muscle-up since the open. Thrusters were a little heavy since I haven’t squatted anything like that in a long time. I put the belt on for 175+ I think.

Conditioning

E2M except not at 0:00 – 7 Wall Balls (20#, 10′)

  • 100 DB Snatches (40#)
  • 50 DB Hang Power Cleans (50# DBs)

It was programmed as wall balls EMOM but we didn’t do that because I guess it was too much for the morning folks with a 16:00 time cap, so they made the change for us and put a 12:00 cap on it. I scaled back the snatches from 50# and actually wore my belt through this entire workout too. I did 20-20 snatches before the break, then 20-10, 20-10, and just rested extra by my wall ball every time it came around. The cleans were a bitch! I did 10-10, 10-10, and 10. Finished at 10:38.

This week was a lot of lifting for me and it seems my back survived.

Max Dubs

I did a bunch of yard work yesterday after the workout. I could feel my left shoulder when I was turning the mower around, so hopefully I didn’t do anything to it. At night I was feeling rocked and my upper back was already getting sore. My hands even started aching up through early afternoon. I’m pretty damn sore in my lats, shoulders, and biceps today.

Went to the 4pm class.

Warm-up

2 Rounds

  • 1:30 Machine (30s Easy / 30s Hard / 30s Easy)
  • 10/10 Single Leg/Arm Deadlifts (44#)
  • 5x
    • Inchworm
    • 2 Air Squats
    • 2 Push-ups

Strength

Deadlift

  • 10×45#
  • 6×135
  • 3×205
  • 3×255
  • 3×295
  • 3×325
  • 3x3x335

The working sets were programmed at 90%. Since I don’t really have any recent max, each week I’m starting based off an estimated max and then trying to push a little past that to keep making steady progress back to my strength levels.

Conditioning

5 Cycles

  • 2:00 AMRAP
    • 15 cal Row
    • 10 DB Hang Squat Cleans (40# DBs)
    • Max DU
  • 1:00 Rest

I got 39-45-58-57-46 with 2-2-0-0-1 misses. Kept around a 1,400 cal/hr pace and did the cleans unbroken each round. Not as hard as I was expecting, so maybe I’m getting some legs back.

Surprising Deadlift

Walked 18 holes yesterday. Went to the 4pm.

Warm-up

  • 1:00 Assault Bike
  • 20 Air Squats
  • 1:00 Assault Bike
  • 15 Push-ups
  • 1:00 Assault Bike
  • 30s Partner Front Rack Stretch each arm

Was getting about 10 calories each time on the bike.

Strength

Deadlift

  • 10×45
  • 5×135
  • 5×185
  • 5×215
  • 5×245
  • 3×275
  • 3×295
  • 3×325

Debated if I should deadlift and had been thinking about doing some suitcase deadlifts. My back has felt better yesterday and today so gave it a go. Felt really good actually. I put on the belt with 215+ I think and used a neutral grip for all sets. Stayed with the 5s and 3s instead of doing three heavy singles which was programmed.

Back in February I did some sets of 305 for doubles and remember it feeling heavy. Other than that, the previous time I lifted over 300 was in March of 2017 before I tweaked my back really bad.

Conditioning

10:00 AMRAP

  • 5 Bench Press (165#)
  • 10 Dumbbell Hang Power Clean (50# DBs)
  • 20 Air Squats

The Rx on the bench was 185 and I wasn’t confident I’d be able to hold that very long. Scaling back to 165 was the right choice and just close enough to a struggle as the rounds progressed. When I did the first round in a minute I knew it was too fast and slowed my pace a bit. Got through 7 rounds and the bench press.
