Setting a Baseline

We didn’t get to do the Adventure Park in the trees yesterday because there was thunder in the area. Knees are feeling the squatting from cleans yesterday but already better than they felt last night. Headed over to CFi at noon. Started with Crossover Symmetry Activation.


  • 500m Row
  • 40 Air Squats
  • 30 Sit-ups
  • 20 Push-ups
  • 10 Pull-ups

I’ve always wanted to try this. Did the row in about 1:50 or slightly under and then unbroken on all of the movements to finish in 4:33. I need to work on faster air squats.

EMOM 10:00

  • 5 C2B Pull-ups

Had originally planned muscle-ups, but don’t work the chest to bar pull-ups enough. Did each round unbroken.


  • 45# Position Work
  • 3×75# Muscle Snatch + OHS
  • 3×95# Power Snatch + OHS
  • 3×115# Snatch
  • 2×130# Snatch
  • E30S 10:00
    • 145# Power Snatch
    • 145# OHS

The every 30 second complex at the end got bad pretty early. After 4 I wanted to shorten it in half. Wouldn’t let myself though and made it all the way through. A lot of work on the wrists!

20:00 AMRAP

  • 3 Strict Ring Dips
  • 6 Deadlifts (135#)
  • 9 Weighted Step-ups/downs (40# sandbag)
  • 12 Russian KBS (53#)
  • 50m Sled Drag (25m down and back, 38# sled + 135#)

Wanted a longer workout where I could just keep moving. I wasn’t rushing anything, but kept everything unbroken. Finished 7 rounds plus 3 dips and 6 deadlifts. Walked about 400m after.

8 Rounds

  • 15s Hollow Rocks
  • 15s Rest

Managed to get 14-13-13-14-13-13-13-14 on the reps.

Finished up with Crossover Symmetry Iron Scap (blue/purple).

At night I did DDP YRG Below the Belt.
