I had a deep tissue massage today at 1 and then worked out at 5 to get a good chunk of rest before our 1RM deadlifts.
5:00 Jump Rope Singles
After always doing DUs it’s hard to switch over and do singles with a speed rope. Seems so slow. I lost count around 70 and figured it didn’t really matter how many anyways.
Find 1RM Deadlift
My goal was to hit 400# today. A month ago I pulled 385#, but couldn’t get 395# moving at all. Warmed up with 6 at 225#, 3 at 275# and then started on my singles. Did 315#, 345#, and 365#. Kevin did 405# on his attempt so I said why the hell not and got it easily. Went one more time and got 415# too. That’s a 30# increase in a month and 100# in the last 7 months!
- Deadlifts (115#)
- Front Squats (115#)
- Over the Bar Burpees
Around the 7th or 8th minute this really hits you and I had to start breaking things up a bit. Completed 11 full rounds plus 12 deadlifts and 5 front squats. I didn’t expect the deadlifts to get so hard at that weight. Fully expected the front squats to be difficult as the rep counts increased and they were.
No way I was staying for the 6pm Olympic lifting class after this one. My lower back is wiped out.
