Dripping

I’ve been sleeping in lately, though going to bed later a few times too. Wasn’t planning on going to 9am this morning anyway though. Out in the garage around 11.

Warm-up

5:00 Air Dyne (AD2)

Nice easy pace for 1.94km.

Strength

Back Squats

  • 20×45#
  • 5×135#
  • 5×185#
  • 3×205#
  • 3×225#
  • 3×245#
  • 3×265#
  • 3x3x285#
  • 3x5x205#

Debated going for more than 285, but didn’t want to push it and tweak my back again. Also though about doing 5 sets with it, but the 3rd set started to feel weird so I dropped the weight and did some speed drop sets. No reason to push it and end up with a set back again.

Conditioning

IMG_4884Ski Erg

  • Easy 600m, including a few surges at the tempo to be used for the 400s
  • 2:00 Rest
  • 5x400m w/ 30s rest between
  • 5:00 Rest
  • 4x400m w/ 30s rest between
  • 5:00 Rest
  • 3x400m w/ 30s rest between

* Target pace is 5-8 seconds slower than a 2k pace. Works out to 2:05-2:08 for me.

I went 2:45.9 on the warmup and here are my work sets:

  • 1:40.8 – 1:41.1 – 1:40.6 – 1:40.7 – 1:40.2
  • 1:40.4 – 1:40.4 – 1:40.1 – 1:39.5
  • 1:39.8 – 1:39.6 – 1:38.5

Humid as a mother fucker in the garage, even with the door open.

Went to the 5:30 class at CFi. Was there early so did Crossover Symmetry Activation and some bottom squat holds.

Warm-up

  • Shoulder Pass-thrus
  • 30 Mountain Climbers
  • 20 Jumping Jacks
  • 10 Push-ups
  • 5×45# Shoulder Press
  • Plyo Push-up (12″)
  • 5×95# Shoulder Press
  • Plyo Push-up (14″)
  • 5×125# Shoulder Press

Pass-thrus are iffy on the shoulder again. 😦

XWOD

  • 5-5-5-5-5-5-5 Shoulder Press (137.5#)
  • 2-1-2-1-2-1-2 Explosive Push-ups
    • 2s: Clapping Push-ups
    • 1s: Plyo Push-up (18″)

That was 2.5# up from the 7×5 I did last week. I decided not to start another Smolov Jr. cycle since I want to cut back on the shoulder pressing a little. I’ll wing it going off recent weights.

Accessory

8 Rounds (Tabata)

  • 20s Wall Balls (20#, 10′)
  • 10s Rest

Never stopped during work time and caught the ball and rested leaning up against it on the wall to let my arms drop. Got 10 every round. Not in danger of having to stop at all.

Conditioning

7:00 AMRAP

  • 10 Air Squats
  • 20 American KBS (53#)
  • 30 DU

Did everything unbroken throughout. Finished 4 full rounds plus the 10 air squats and 20 swings. Didn’t have enough time to grab the rope.

Midline

3 Rounds NFT

  • 20 Russian Twists (53#)
  • 20 Sit-ups

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