Fun Garage Sesh

Slept in again. Out to the garage around 11.

Weightlifting

  • 5 Squat Snatch + 5 Snatch Press (45#)
  • 4 Squat Snatch + 4 Snatch Press (75#)
  • 3 Squat Snatch + 3 Snatch Press (95#)
  • 2 Squat Snatch (115#)
  • 2 Squat Snatch (135#)
  • 1 Squat Snatch (155#)
  • 1 Squat Snatch (165#)
  • 10:00 EMOM
    • 5:00 – 1 Squat Snatch (175#)
    • 5:00 – 1 Squat Snatch (185#)

Planned all 10 minutes at 175# but it was feeling pretty good, so after 3 I decided I’d bump it up for the back end. Got a little iffy on the last couple with 185#, but no misses = a good day. I miss doing stuff like this.

I wish I had set the camera better so I could get the full bar path. It looks like it gets out a few inches from the starting point, but pretty good for not working on it in months.

Conditioning – “Flight Simulator”

5-10-15-20-25-30-35-40-45-50-45-40-35-30-25-20-15-10-5

  • Unbroken Double Unders

I’ve been wanting to test this one out for a while since I haven’t done it in more than 2 years. Perfect day for it. Went all the way up with no misses. Started taking breaks after sets around 30 or 35. On the way back down I missed once on the 40 and twice on the 30. Cruised home with no rest when I got to 25. Finished in 9:30 which is a PR by 4:05!!

That was a fun session.

Went to the chiropractor at 5 and then to the 5:30 class at CFi.

Warm-up

  • Bottom Squat Hold
  • 400m Run
  • PVC Pass-thrus
  • PVC Good Mornings
  • Air Squats

Strength – Deadlift

  • 10×45#
  • 5×155#
  • 5×225#
  • 3×265#
  • 3×295#
  • 3×325#
  • 3×355#
  • 3×375#
  • 3×395#

Haven’t really pushed the weight with deadlifts in months. Wore my belt for the last 4-5 sets and figured I’d see how it felt. I survived.

Conditioning

  • 100 Wall Balls (20#, 10′)
  • EMOM – 5 Burpees

Also known as Wall Ball Kalsu I guess. First minute was free for all wall ballin’ this time, compared to starting with burpees back in March, when I did 5:54. My minutes ended with 28-45-62-80, so I had to bust my ass with 20 reps left in the final minute. I usually get 10 reps in a Tabata round so I knew it was possible, especially if I was already descending into the squats as the ball hit my hands. The 100th rep was in the air as time hit 5:00 so that was good enough for me. 🙂 My rep counts during burpee minutes were 2-3 reps higher than that version we did earlier in the year.

Accessory

3 Sets

  • 14/14 Kroc Rows (70#)
  • 14 Ring Push-ups (feet on short box since rings were up about 6-8 inches.)

14 Kroc rows at a time is rough if you’re trying to keep a solid back position. I was sweating more from these than the metcon.
