2,263

Planned to go at 9am, but didn’t get up until 8:30 and that was only because I got a text from my Dad after DnD turned off on my phone. Guess I needed the sleep. Went to the 4:30 class instead.

Warm-up

  • 300m Row
  • Shoulder Pass Thrus
  • Bottom Squat Hold

Strength

Deadlifts

  • 6×155#
  • 6×245#
  • 6×315#
  • 6×335#
  • 6×345#
  • 6×355#
  • 6×365#
  • 6×375#

Hadn’t done anything more than 205# since September 12th, especially with the back tweak in the middle of that period somewhere. Felt solid.

Conditioning

Thruster Attack!

thrusters-are-coming

Every 1:30 for 5 sets

  • 15 Thrusters (95#)

It was a fight, but made every round unbroken. It was actually easier than on Sunday when it was every 1:45, so that’s 1:00 of less rest overall. Shows how sick I must have still been. Really felt a burn in the quads, which were probably working a little extra after the deadlifts trashed the posterior chain.

That completes the 10 week thruster program. I’m glad it’s over! Next up is to test out “Fran”. I was planning to do it Sunday, but might wait until next Sunday to let my body fully recover. We’ll see how the next two days go. Over the 10 weeks I did a total of 2,263 thrusters (not counting warm-ups).

Midline

  • 100 Sit-ups

Went unbroken in 3:34. Not blazing by what I’ve done before, but was pretty tired after the deadlifts and thrusters.

After class I jumped on the Reverse Hyper for 3x10x230#.

Back to 9

Got a solid night of sleep and was up around 7:20 without needing to go back to sleep. So made it in for 9am.

A Late Super Sunday

Super Sunday at 4pm today since I was coming back from up north. Switched things up a bit…

Warmed up with some snatch work at 45# and 95#. Hit some at 115# too.

10:00

  • 5 Snatches
  • Increase weight and continue with 5 reps at each weight.

I went 115-135-145-155-165-175. Did 115# as touch-n-go reps. Had one miss at 165# Had about exactly 1:00 left on the clock after loading up 175# and finished them with a second to spare. That was really fun.

XWOD

  • 5-5-5-5-5-5 Good Mornings
  • 2-1-2-1-2-1 Kneeling Jumps

I didn’t want to push it with the good mornings, but need to be doing them to strengthen my lower back. Went 155-155-155-155-175-185. For the kneeling jumps I used 10.25″ for the doubles and 13.5″ for the singles.

  • 3 Rounds (Tabata)
    • 20s Thrusters (75#)

I got 6 reps for the first 3 rounds, but started dying and got 4 reps the rest of the way.

Alex had a bar out with the reds still on it, so I jumped on it to drill my cleans a little.

Got in a little order from Rogue today, in which I picked up a set of the safety straps for my rack.

IMG_4908

Went to the 5:30 class at CFi.

Warm-up

  • 3x10x120# Reverse Hypers
  • Double Squat Jumps
  • Explosive Squat Jumps
  • PVC arm/back stretching behind back

Skill

Single Leg Standing Box Jumps

Had never tried these before. Pretty weird and different feeling. Started at 20″, then 24″, and slowly worked up from there. Hit 31.5″ on both legs and ended there. Will have to come back to these once in a while. Nice change from using both legs.

Conditioning

5 Rounds

  • 5 Hang Power Cleans
  • 5 Front Squats
  • 5 Push Press
  • 5 Back Squats
  • 5 Burpees

I used 115# because I figured I’d be able to hold on to the bar through an entire round. Worked out too. I wouldn’t have made it with 135#. Finished in 6:49.

15:00 Row (easy)

Kept pace between 2:10-2:15. Went 3,383 meters.
