Wall Meet Face

Didn’t feel like a very good night of sleep again, probably something to do with the change it diet yesterday. Made it to the gym early to get in the first rowing session of the week before 9am. Didn’t have time for a warm-up though.



  • 500m
  • 1:00 Rest

This is supposed to be a good estimation of 2k potential by adding up the row time plus another 10-15 seconds. With that in mind, I set an aggressive goal of 1:37. Made the first two intervals at 1:36.4 but hit the wall hard at the end of the 3rd, and then had nothing left in the 4th. Averaged a 1:38.7 which would still work out to a solid potential PR. Rank of 95 on BTWB for this workout so good shit.


Update: I actually forgot that I tried an increased drag factor. I can’t remember exactly what it was, but pretty sure it was something between 135-140. I’m sure that had something to do with how much I was destroyed by the end. Going to try sticking around 132-133 for this next phase and see how it goes.

My legs were smoked and I was out of it for the entire class. Tried to get in some solid work though.

Strength: 3 Shoulder Press + 3 Push Press

  • 45#
  • 65#
  • 95#
  • 105#
  • 115#
  • 125#
  • 135#

Took it slow and easy.


4 Sets

  • 5 Good Mornings
  • 5 Pendlay Rows (Supinated Grip)

Went with 115-135-155-155# for the good mornings and 135-155-165-175# for the rows.


5 Rounds

  • 5 Curtis P (45#)
  • 10 Wall Ball (14#, 10′)
  • 75 Jump Rope

Scale city! My goal was to just move because I knew I didn’t have any intensity left in my tank. Yep, those are singles on the jump rope, which are not easy. Can’t keep a rhythm at fatigue. I had to break them up into a lot of sets after the first round. Went unbroken on the other two movements though and just tried to keep moving even though it was slow. Took me 14:34.
