Core Galore

Last night I was exhausted from driving down state to golf in the morning and the long night run. Got nearly 10 hours of sleep. My legs are feeling some fatigue this morning but HRV was good. I’ve dropped 6 pounds since getting my diet back on point a week ago.

Warmed up for Super Sunday with Crossover Symmetry Activation, a 500m row, and some C&J with 45 and 95#.

Open Workout 13.4

7:00 AMRAP

  • C&J (135#)
  • T2B

I haven’t done this since the Open that year when I got 82 reps. Got 75 today. I guess I should have gone back and read what I did back then. Whoops! Did the first 3 clean & jerks unbroken, then all singles. Did sets of 3 toes to bars until the 12 when I did 3 sets of 4. I could have easily beat that old score by stringing together more T2B.


10:00 EMOM (alt)

  • 5 Pendlay Rows (165#)
  • 15 V-ups

I tried to squeeze each row for a second at the top. Focused on quality v-ups.

10:00 EMOM (alt)

  • 5 Deficit HSPU (2″)
  • 5/5 Weighted Step-ups (#106, 20″)

I did the first round of handstand push-ups strict and 3 in round 2 I think. Then a quick small kip. Held two 53# kettlebells for the step-ups. Actually started out at 24″, but 4 reps in I realized that was too high and flipped the box. Haven’t done them in a long time so forgot about the leg being parallel in the step. I think I might start doing these once a week to try to heal my quad.


Tabata Hollow Rocks

Horrible! Worst performance I’ve had with these that I can remember. I only made it through 3 rounds without an extra break. I think I got 119 total reps. Core was pretty shot after the T2B and V-ups.

Run Every Day

Didn’t rain all day like the forecast called for. Headed out for a run before 6pm. Went 2.71 miles in 26:50. Little on the humid side.
