Shoulder Pump

My hammies are feeling tight from squatting the last couple of days I think. In for the 9am class at CFi.

Warm-up

  • Bar Hangs
  • 3 Rounds of “Cindy”
    • 5 Pull-ups (strict)
    • 10 Push-ups
    • 15 Air Squats
  • Deadlifts
    • 4×155#
    • 4×245#
    • 4×315#

XWOD

7 Rounds

  • 4 Deadlifts (345#)
  • 1 Broad Jump

Bumped up the weight 10# from last week which was 8×3. No issues with the back.

Strength/Skill

8:00 EMOM

  • 6 Thrusters (135#)

The thruster attack plan is working pretty well. Wasn’t easy but not terrible either.

Conditioning

“Helen”
3 Rounds

  • 400m Run
  • 21 American KBS (53#)
  • 12 Pull-ups

First run was about 2 minutes! Yuck. Need to be faster than that. All swings were unbroken and pull-ups were 12, 7-5, and 8-4. Finished in 10:04. I think thrusters destroyed my shoulders a bit. I couldn’t even touch my shoulders after the workout that’s how pumped up they were. Not even close to my PR time of 9:30, the only other time I did “Helen” over 2 years ago. Don’t remember what we did for the runs then, but maybe it was really short (or at least I’ll tell myself that to feel better). The bottom line is I need to push myself more when running in a metcon.

Afternoon garage time just before 4pm. Warmed up with an easy 3 minutes on the Air Dyne for 1.24km.

5 Rounds

  • 1:20
    • 15 C2D Push-ups
    • Air Dyne
  • 1:00 Rest

Was able to do the push-ups unbroken every round and couldn’t believe it. Gave me pretty much exactly 1 minute on the Air Dyne each round by the time I got on it. Distances were 0.7, 0.75, 0.74, 0.74, and 0.74 km.

Walked a half mile to cool down.

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