Gut It Out

Needed that rest day yesterday. I got a massage from Cora and had laser therapy on my shoulder. I also did 4 sets of a 5:00 bottom squat hold throughout the day and some hip/couch stretching at night. Knees feel a little “creaky” this morning.

Out in the garage this morning to attack the plan early.


3:00 Bottom Squat Hold

Back Squats


  • 10×45#
  • 5×135#
  • 5×225#
  • 3×245#
  • 3×275#
  • 10:00 EMOM 2×295# (Rapid Fire!)

After I got through the 5th rapid fire set I figured there was no way I was finishing unless I increased the rest. Finished without making adjustments, but it was one hell of a grind. Writing a nice reminder on the board right in front of me helped a lot since I didn’t have anyone there to yell at me.

I went immediately into a 5:00 squat hold. :-/ Felt really good actually.

Good Mornings

E2M 12:00

  • 6×135#

Really focused on driving up be engaging the hamstrings and glutes. Did another squat hold of 3:00.

Double Under Challenge

7 Rounds

  • MAX Unbroken DU (Only count 30+ as a set)
  • 1:30 Rest

I got 60-69-75-69-90-45-71 with only 2 misses. I dad a 24 going for the 2nd set and a 5 going for the 6th set. Was good work on larger sets instead of always hitting that 30-40 range and artificially stopping. Good way to start the final week of 1,000+ double unders with 508! I’m aiming for 1,500+ this week.

Yep, another 2:00 squat hold.


3 Rounds

  • 1:00 Air Dyne (AD2)
  • 2:00 Rest

Short and sweet, but very intense! I got 60, 57, and 56 calories. Finished with one more 2:00 squat hold for a total of 15 minutes. I’ll try for a 6:00 one later to get over 20 and set a single set time record.
