Keep it Solid

Thursday is not my favorite morning of the week. At least not until squats are over because it’s Super Squats day. Warmed up with 5:00 Air Dyne (2.28 km).

Coffee Squats

Back Squat

  • 20×45#
  • 10×135#
  • 5×185#
  • 5×225#
  • 20×245#

Went up 20# from last week. My drive up and back positioning felt really good. I’m the most excited about being about to keep that solid back through all of the reps. 25 days in the books.

Over to CFi for the 9am.

Warm-up

  • Crossover Symmetry Activation
  • Bottom Squat Hold
  • 10 Air Squats
  • 2x 15/15 Band Side Steps
  • 15 Toe Touches (last 7 reach up too)

Strength

Romanian Deadlift

  • 8×45#
  • 4×135#
  • 4×205#
  • 4×255#
  • 4×285#
  • 4×305#

I felt something pull on the left side of my middle back on the first rep with 305#. WTF! Tightened up and was able to do the other 3 reps. Better just be a little muscle tweak or I’ll be so pissed at myself. I’ve been working so hard to be smart with all of the squats and it couldn’t be going any better. If a stupid RDL messes me up…grrrr.

Conditioning

  • Run 1 Mile

Nice and easy. Did it in 9:13. When did I get so bad at running?

  • 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 Burpees
  • 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 Air Squats
  • 30 DU

Steady pace. Had 2 misses on dubs, after 7s and after 3s. Finished in 9:10. Did Crossover Symmetry Iron Scap and got out of there.
