Rapid Fire Squats with 285#

Went to open gym tonight to train with Brent.

Warm-up

  • 500m Row
  • 45# Clean Position Work
  • 95# Clean Position Work

Power Cleans

  • 3 @ 125#
  • 3 @ 155#
  • 2 @ 185#
  • 1 @ 215#
  • 1 @ 225#
  • 1 @ 235#
  • F @ 245#

I gave up on that last one before I even started. Would have been a power clear PR. My clean feels terrible compared to my snatch.

Strength

Back Squats

  • 5 @ 135#
  • 5 @ 185#
  • 3 @ 225#
  • 2 @ 255#
  • 10 x 2 @ 285# (rapid fire!)

Brent and I went pretty much one right after the other for those last 10 sets. Finished just under 9:00. Last few sets were a big struggle for me to get the 2nd rep.

Bench Press

  • 5 @ 135#
  • 3 @ 165#
  • 3 @ 185#
  • 3 @ 205#
  • 3 @ 215#
  • 2-F @ 225#
  • 3 @ 205#

Getting better, but right arm was still the failure on 3rd rep at 225#. Don’t think I’ve ever done more than 1 at that weight though.

WOD

5:00 AMRAP

  • 15 Ball Slams (15#)
  • 25 DU
  • 10 Pull-ups

Everything unbroken for 3+42, 8 pull-ups shy of 4 complete rounds. Haven’t done any double unders in weeks, so stoked to have done all 4 sets unbroken. The pull-ups weren’t bad either. Ball slams were terrible in that last round. Triceps were smoked from bench press.
