Wall Ball Squats

Woke up again! Went to the 9am.

Warm-up

  • Bottom Squat Hold
  • Ring OH Stretch
  • 10 Good Mornings (15#)
  • 10 Back Squats (15#)
  • Calf Stretch
  • 10 OHS (15#)

Strength: Overhead Squats

3-3-X-1 Tempo

  • 3×45#
  • 3×95#
  • 3×115#
  • 3×135#
  • 3×155#
  • 3×175#

The closer grips are feeling better and better. Empty bar with a jerk (or even closer grip) is no issue now.

Conditioning

10:00 AMRAP

  • 5x
    • Wall Ball (20#, 10′)
    • Goblet Squat (20#)
  • 15 Russian Kettlebell Swings (70#)
  • 30 Double Unders

The double squat wall balls (not 2-for-1s) were a little confusing. I think I did an extra squat on the 5th “rep” a few times. Kept a pretty steady pace. Missed a few times on dubs. Finished 6 rounds plus the wall ball squats and swings. Picked up the rope but didn’t have time to get any.

Accessory

5 Rounds

  • 10 Decline Push-ups (16″)
  • 6 Ring Rows

All unbroken sets and unbelievably no struggle.

Back to the gym around 6pm

Rowing WOD Week 13 Session 2 – Engine

  • 300 cals at 20s/m
  • 5:00 Rest
  • 200 cals at 22
  • 4:00 Rest
  • 100 cals at 24
  • 3:00 Rest
  • 50 cals for time

Results:

  • 18:40 – 4,616m – 962cal/hr
  • 12:14 – 3,057m – 979cal/hr
  • 5:54 – 1,509m – 1009cal/hr
  • 1:32 – 537m – 1847cal/hr

The distances all include some run off after finishing since there isn’t a way to set a calorie workout on the Concept 2. Total comes to 9,710 meters for the session. In the 50 calorie row I started out holding over 2,000cal/hr through 30 but the burn started to kick in and I was losing power. Not sure why I didn’t think to kick in for a sprint in the last 10 calories or so like I would try to in a distance sprint. Felt pretty smoked after that but would have been a decent 500m time after having spent 36+ minutes on the rower.
