Felt some fatigue in my legs when I woke up in the middle of the night. Got to CFi at 9 and warmed up with 100 walking lunges.
Pause Back Squats (1s in the hole) + Back Squats
- 4+8 @ 45#
- 2+4 @ 135#
- 2+4 @ 225#
- 1+2 @ 265#
- 1+2 @ 295#
- 1+2 @ 315#

I had planned on working up to some heavy single pause squats, but then saw the combination at CrossFit Weightlifting and thought it looked fun to try. Definitely a new challenge doing for some regular reps after the pause squat.
- 12 JM Press (45-55-60-65-70#)
- 12 Incline DB Bench Press (45°, 40-40-44-44-44#)
The JM presses felt easier today and I bumped up some of the sets. Not a lot of dumbbell options at the gym so I tried some kettlebells. Completely changes the incline pressing! I think the angle due to the KB ended up using the triceps a lot more and they were already smoked.
- 30s Muscle-ups
- 1:30 Rest
I was going to try to get a set of 6 every time through. Did it in 21 seconds the first round, but then couldn’t get another 6. Did 5-5-4 the last 3 sets.
- 5 C&J (135#)
- 10 T2B
- 200m MB Run (20#)
Went unbroken the first two rounds, then single clean and jerks and 7-3 T2B the last two rounds. Finished in 9:29. Should have pushed to keep going unbroken. Been so concerned with squats lately that my mental game and conditioning has taken a hit.
