Medicine Ball Cleans Are The Devil

Feeling the squats. Small class with only me and one other person this morning, but Matt worked out with me too.

Warm-up

It was all shoulder stuff on the board to prepare for behind the neck snatch presses. Since I wasn’t doing those, I did a bunch of leg stretching and mobility.

Strength

Seated Good Mornings

  • 5×45#
  • 5×95#
  • 3×135#
  • 3×165#
  • 3×175#
  • 3×185#
  • 3×195#

Skill

12:00 EMOM

  • Odds: 30 DU
  • Evens: 20 Hollow Rocks

My DU were terrible today. One round I was missing after 1 or 2 and it took me 45 seconds to get 30 done. First and last set were unbroken. Maybe my legs are just that fatigued. Hollow rocks are getting easier. Was able to hold arms over my head today, so shoulder is improving too.

Conditioning

12:00 AMRAP

  • 75 MB Cleans (20#)
  • 50 Box Jumps (24″)
  • 25 Deadlifts (225#)

I put the MB cleans in for wall balls. Holy shit! It was like 2 squats for every rep. Getting that first box jump was scary. I stepped down on them all, but never stopped. Did 20 singles with the deadlift and then a set of 5 to finish. I scaled the weight back from 275# because the back has been feeling good and I want to ease back into heavy deads. I finished 1 full round and then 14 more MB cleans. My legs are going to be feeling this for a couple of days.
