Body of Lies

Slept like shit and was up at 6am. My legs and especially knees are aching this morning. First time that I don’t feel my abs the day after doing “Annie” but I did it last night so maybe I’ll start to feel it later. Finally headed out to the garage after 7:15. Warmed up with 5:00 on the Air Dyne (2.3 km).

Super Squats

  • 20×45#
  • 10×135#
  • 5×185#
  • 5×225#
  • 20×260#

I was stalling as much as possible. Took a nice long rest of about 5 minutes before doing the 20 and I could feel my heart rate rising. I was dreading that set. The human body always has a fucking surprise though, doesn’t it? Might have been the best set of Super Squats I’ve done as far as feel goes. I was still breathing like a mother fucker, but my legs felt good and the set only took me 1:35. It took longer to finish with 245# last week! Can’t believe it. I had to check the plates on the bar to make sure I didn’t load it wrong. The body lies to us!

That just makes the rest of the day easy. Mentally gets you going too. Fueled up with a quick breakfast skillet and went to the 9am class.

Warm-up

  • Crossover Symmetry Activation
  • Bottom Squat Hold
  • PVC Good Mornings

Strength

Deadlift

  • 4×155#
  • 4×245#
  • 7:00 EMOM – 4×295#

Wasn’t going to push it and tweak the back again, so I focused on being explosive with my reps.

Conditioning

14:00 AMRAP
2-4-6-8…

  • Burpees
  • American KBS (70#)
  • Wall Balls (25#, 10′)

Felt like going Rx+ today. Good excuse to slow down. 😉 I broke the swings and wall balls up in 7-5 on the set of 12 but everything else was unbroken. Finished the 14s plus 16 burpees. Walked 200m after.

Midline

  • MAX Plank (on hands)

Made it to 4:30 which is a 24 second PR. My wrists, arms, and shoulders couldn’t take any longer. Don’t get me wrong my core was shaking like an earthquake but that’s not what stopped me.

Did Crossover Symmetry Iron Scap and got out of there.
