Going Overhead

Another Super Sunday! Only 45 days until the first Open workout is announced. Warmed up with a lot of stretching and mobility stuff.

5 Sets

  • 3 Strict HSPU

Didn’t use a deficit on the first set, but then went 1.5″, 2.5″, 3″, and 4″ or the other sets.

E2M 12:00

  • Thrusters (95#)
  • C2B Pull-ups

I did 12 thrusters and 10 chest-to-bar for the first two rounds and then adjusted to 10 and 8 the rest of the way because I wasn’t getting enough rest time. This was so much worse than I planning it to be. Would have been more of what I wanted by going every 3 minutes. That’s ok though; it was hard!

10:00 Rest

3 Cycles

  • 2 Rounds
    • 5 Push Jerks (115#)
    • 10 Deadlifts (115#)
    • 15 Box Jumps (24″)
  • 2:00 Rest

This comes from Open Workout 13.2. Changed from 5 cycles to 3 after the thrusters and pull-ups. Ended up being perfect and kept up the intensity. I need to get my box jumps back so I forced myself to jump everything instead of bitching out to step-ups when I got tired. Box jumps used to be one of my strengths and lately I haven’t been able to keep knocking them out in workouts. There were only a few reps during the second cycle that I didn’t rebound before kicking my ass to man up. The second round of deadlifts each cycle were a surprising burn on the hips. My round times were 1:45, 1:57, and 2:05. Happy I was able to do everything unbroken and not rest other than a few breaths between movements after the first cycle.

2x with a partner

  • 10 Chest MB Passes
  • 10 OH MB Passes
  • 10/10 Side MB Passes
  • 10 Up MB Passes

Each person goes all the way through before switching out. Used a 20# ball. Those side passes are always horrible.

A lot of shoulder work today. I only have some Air Dyne work planned for tomorrow so no worries.
