High & Heavy

Not feeling very energized this morning, but in for the 9am at CFi.


  • Crossover Symmetry Activation
  • Band Pulls & Pass Thrus
  • 20 Air Squats
  • Shoulder Press
    • 5×45#
    • 5×95#
    • 3×115#
    • 3×135#


  • 3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3 Shoulder Press (150#)
  • 2-1-2-1-2-1-2-1 Wall Balls
    • 2s: 20# MB to 13′ target
    • 1s: 25# Slam Ball to 13′ target

That’s a new 3RM on my shoulder press again and for 8 sets! Took some getting used to throwing the 25# ball so high, but was getting the last couple.


2 Rounds

  • 2:00 AMRAP
    • 10 Burpees
    • 10 Box Jumps (24″)
  • 1:00 Rest
  • 2:00 AMRAP
    • 10 Goblet Squats (53# KB)
    • 10 Russian KBS (53# KB)
  • 1:00 Rest

All GO in these little AMRAPs. I went unbroken through everything, never having the kettlebell touch the ground. I got 2+5, 3+11, 2+3, and 3+8, so only fell off the pace a little the second time through.


3 Rounds NFT

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

Hit an afternoon snatch session in the garage. Warmed up with

  • 5×45# Muscle Snatch
  • 5×45# Snatch Press
  • 5×45# OHS
  • 3×75# Muscle Snatch
  • 3×75# Snatch Press
  • 3×75# OHS
  • 3×95# Power Snatch

Then I did a little complex of:

  • Power from floor w/ 2s pause at knee
  • Squat from hang at knee

I started at 115# and went up 5# at a time until I hit 160, so 10 sets.

Then I was planning to do an EMOM with a double squat snatch with 165#. Missed the second attempt in the first minute and then missed another attempt at it. So I started over. 🙂

10:00 EMOM

  • 2×155# Squat Snatch

I had one miss on the 2nd rep in round 6 but took a breath, concentrated, and hit a second make right after the miss. From that point on I really had to focus. My thoughts were on being explosive through the second pull and finishing strong to punch the bar overhead. I think a lot of my misses are because I’m not aggressive with the bar at the end and I lose tension.

Walked about a half mile after.
