Hundreds of ’em, Fifty Two

Have been resting on Fridays, but really wanted to get in another squat session today, so I’ll rest tomorrow or maybe drag the sled.

  • 3:00 Bottom Squat Hold
  • 200 DU
  • 3:00 Bottom Squat Hold
  • Crossover Symmetry Activation

I guess I left my RPM rope at Survival Fitness, so had to use my backup, the RX rope. Managed to get 70+ and then 100 unbroken during the first 200. That got me to 1,508 for the final week of my personal Double Under Challenge. In 4 weeks I racked up 5,200+ double unders!


Muscle Clean

  • 3×95#
  • 3×115#
  • 3×135#

Hip Clean

  • 2x3x135#
  • 3x2x155#
  • 3x2x175#

Trying to work on speed under the bar. Kevin also pointed out that I was banging some instead of driving the bar up so I tried to work on pulling the bar in to me and driving it up off the legs.


Back Squats

  • 5×155#
  • 5×205#
  • 4x9x245#

I’m going to start pulling some of my extra squat days from a Smolov squat cycle, so that’s where the 4×9 came from. It was supposed to be at 240#, but I didn’t feel like messing with the little plates. Wasn’t as hard as I was expecting.

Good Mornings

  • 5×135#
  • 5×155#
  • 2x5x175#
  • 5×185#

In between some of the good mornings I knocked out 3 sets of 50 band pulls. Finished with another 3:00 squat hold. Ended up with 29 total minutes in the squat hold today, so tomorrow and the rest of the 30 days will be 30 minutes a day.

I'm searching for the perfect golf swing and my first hole-in-one. I'm addicted to CrossFit. I work for Automattic.
