Gettin’ Bar Muscle-ups

Quad is a fired up again after the squats last night. 😦 I was in before the 9am class to get in some rowing and bar muscle-ups.


  • 14:00 @ 5k pace (1:57)

Was on pace until I took off my hoodie, which sent my average up to 1:58.5. Got it back down to 1:57.7 by the end so should have been pretty close during actual rowing time. Crazy what 10-15 seconds can do. Went 3,569 meters.


E90S for 12:00 (8 sets)

  • 2 Bar MU

I did 2 singles in the second round because my hands were sweaty and I was going to fall off the bar. Chalked up the rest of the way and had no problems. Decided to go for it in the last round and got 5! I’ve never attempted 3 before. Stopped because it felt like my thumbs were going to peel off. These are definitely a different feel from ring muscle-ups. Less energy used, but much harder on the hands.

We did some light stretching and shoulder warm-up to start class.

Muscle Snatch

  • 5×45#
  • 5×75#
  • 5×95#

Power Snatch

  • 3×115#
  • 2×135#
  • 2×155#
  • 1×165#
  • 1×175#
  • 1×185#

Definitely wasn’t going to get down into the squat with any today. It was hard enough just getting into the setup position without favoring the left side too much. More than happy to hit 185 on basically one leg.


10:00 EMOM

  • 3 Power Snatch (115#)
  • 3 OHS (115#)

All touch-n-go reps. The overhead squats were definitely a challenge with the leg.


Tabata Mash-up 5x

  • Hollow Hold
  • Plank
  • Russian Twist (45# plate)

Plus a bonus 20s of Russian Twists at the end. The hollow holds got pretty rough since I just did all those hollow rocks last night.

Reverse Hypers

3 Sets

  • 10×210#

Figured it would be good to do some after the squats last night and OHS in the workout. All that in about 90 minutes. That’s enough for today.
