Pretty early to bed again last night, was up by 7, and in the garage by 7:30. Warmed up with 50 walking lunges.
- 6:00 EMOM
Wanted to kind of take it “easy” today, but usually an EMOM like this is anything but easy. I was going to use 255# the whole way, but when I got done with the 4th set I went straight for the 5# plates and threw them on. Maybe not the best idea because in that 5th set I felt a pull in my upper back from holding the rack position. Same area that I tweaked a couple of weeks ago. Took a couple of hours before I really felt it last time, so will see how it feels this afternoon.
24 days of squats…check!
- 200 Weighted Walking Lunges (20# vest)
Relaxed pace since my heart rate was already up from the EMOM work. Finished in 9:29.
Damn I look like death in that picture. Can you tell I just rolled out of bed? Done by 8am. How did you start your day?
Was able to get tennis stadium tickets for all 3 days of the CrossFit Games when they went on sale today. So excited!!
Got to the gym at 6pm. Hit Crossover Symmetry Activation and then jumped on the rower.
- 1:30 Row @ 1:48-1:50/500m
- 1:00 Rest
Meter counts were 412-413-414-415-415-414-413-413. Not hard, just putting in work.
No B.S. Bench Press
Cycle 2 Week 2
Feeling solid. I cycled my reps pretty quickly.
I did some warm-up with the empty bar.
Power Clean + Hang Power Clean
- 3×1 50kg
Clean + Hang Clean
- 2×1 80kg
- 2×1 90kg
- 2×1 95kg
Started squatting all of these. Got rough at 95+.
Felt brutal. Looked back and I did the same working sets back in January. Here I thought that might be a PR for a set of 5. I would have gone 5# heavier! 🙂 Finished up with Crossover Symmetry Plyometric.
