Attack

No issues with the back last night. 🙂 No golfing this week to stay away from twisting the back though, so in at the 9am.

Warm-up

Reverse Hypers

  • 10×70#
  • 10×100#
  • 10×120#

EMOM 10:00

  • 1/1 Turkish Get-up

Did 2 rounds with 26#, 4 with 35#, and 4 with 44#. I could feel I need to be doing these more often for my shoulder stability.

Skill

Pick your own adventure.

EMOM 10:00

  • 3 MU

I had to do 2+1 on the 10th round, so then switched to 2 every minute (no extra rest going to the next part).

EMOM 5:00

  • 2 MU

WTF! 40 muscle-ups in one day? On July 5th Kevin had me do a 10:00 EMOM and I was surprised to make it through doing 2 the whole way. Since then I’ve been working muscle-ups every week with some type of EMOM work. I’ve gotten 10x more comfortable with the movement in that time and have improved a lot. Attack a weakness for a month!

Conditioning

10-8-6-4-2

  • Burpees
  • Pull-ups
  • 30 DU

Was a little worried what the pull-ups might feel like after all of the muscle-ups, but I was able to do all unbroken sets of butterfly pull-ups. I missed on double unders 3 or 4 times in the last 10 reps of the 4th round. Ugh! Finished in 5:15.

1 Mile Run – Nothing crazy. But we did kick it in gear for about the last 300m and then sprinted out the last 80-100m or so.

My calves were on fire. Don’t remember them ever feeling like that before. I think the combination of sprints and box jumps together with dubs and the run today did not make them happy. I did a whole bunch of calve and hamstring stretching before leaving the gym. Getting a massage this afternoon.

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