Rough Morning, Solid Night

Got plenty of sleep, but had a hard time getting out of bed. Made it for 9am though.

Warm-up

  • Bottom Squat Hold
  • Arm stretching
  • Band pass-thrus
  • 2 Rounds
    • 20 Mountain Climbers
    • 20 Jumping Jacks

Strength

Shoulder Press

  • 6×45#
  • 6×95#
  • 6×115#
  • 6×125#
  • 6×130#
  • 6×135#
  • 6×140#
  • 6×145#

Meh. Would have liked to get 150 or 155.

Midline

4 Sets

  • 5 Evil Wheels
  • 10/10 Side Bends (62# KB)

Conditioning

12:00 AMRAP

  • 50 Burpees
  • 50 Wall Balls (20#, 10′)
  • 50 American KBS (53#)
  • 50 Air Squats

Settled into a pace of 15-16 burpees per minute, which got me finished around 3:15. Did my wall balls in sets of 10. Too much rest between the sets. Moved on to the swings around 6:10. Did two sets of 15 and two sets of 10. Then the air squats unbroken but slow. Had about a minute left and managed 15 burpees for 215 total reps. Not sure why, but I did not feel very good after this one; I didn’t even push hard. Maybe it’s a nutrition thing or having a hard time waking up was a sign.

Break at night to get in some work in the garage. Warmed up with an easy 5:00 on the Air Dyne for 2.63km.

Back Squat

  • 10×45#
  • 5×135#
  • 5×185#
  • 3×225#
  • 3×255#
  • 3×275#
  • 3×295#
  • 3×315#
  • 3×330#
  • 3×340# (PR)

After 100 squats this morning I was unsure how I’d feel tonight. Wasn’t feeling very good as I worked up and even at 315#. Knew I had to change my attitude after that and just attack each rep. Could definitely feel my quad, though it obviously didn’t hold me back. Hopefully I can walk tomorrow.

Accessory

5 Rounds

  • 30s OH Holds (15# Training bar w/ 15# plates on bands)
  • 30s Rest
  • 30s Hollow Rocks
  • 30s Rest

Big difference from using the earthquake bar, but not a bad substitution. Still get some movement out of the bar and weight. Was able to go non-stop through each set of hollow rocks, which I wasn’t expecting.
