Call an Ambulance

I just killed this workout! Was up later than normal, so slept in a bit. Headed out to the garage around 11 to sweat. Knocked out CS Activation to start. Still not having any aggravation in the shoulder so I’ll keep working it slowly. Getting a massage tomorrow and will have Cora focus a lot of time on it.


  • 300 DU
  • 5:00 Bottom Squat Hold

Set a new record with 3:59 for the double unders.


Muscle Cleans

  • 3×95#
  • 3×115#
  • 3×135#

Rested about a minute between each set.

Cleans (blocks at knee)

  • 2×135#
  • 2×155#
  • 2×175#
  • 2×195#
  • 2×205#
  • 2x2x215#
  • 2×225#

Took 90 seconds of rest between each set like clockwork. Last time doing these on the blocks I kept hesitating with 225# and I did it for a double without a problem today. Confidence is rising!


Back Squats

  • 5×225#
  • 3×255#
  • 7x5x270#

Not a lot of warm-up was needed since I’d been squatting every clean. Kept to 2 minute of rest between each set. Those 7 sets were a challenge. This was the 3rd squat session from the Smolov program. I’ll probably finish out week 1 on Saturday, slightly over a week since I started last Friday. Went right into a 5:00 squat hold.

10 Rounds NFT

  • 10 Incline DB Bench Press (20# DBs)
  • 10 GHD Sit-ups

The first set hurt my shoulder holding the dumbbells oriented as if they were a barbell. I rotated them so my palms were facing for the rest of the sets and had no problem. GHD sit-ups are no issue anymore since I’ve been doing at least 100 a week.

4 Rounds

  • 50 Bicep Band Speed Curls
  • 60s Squat hold

I started out with the thin blue, which was death, so I switched to the red band for the last 3. I switched up the type of curl each round. I got the idea from this video.

Finished off with CS Recovery and just in time because it was started to get pretty warm. I had opened the garage door during the squats for some fresh air. Supposed to be 80° today.
