Four Wheels For Five

I had planned to do some active recovery yesterday, but when I woke up I knew I needed a full rest day. That row-burpee combination has been destroying me. Had a chiro appointment tonight so went to the 5:30 class right after. Doc says things have been loosing up well each time I go in and my low back and transition to my mid back looks a lot better lately. Knock on wood, I haven’t tweaked anything in months either now that I’ve been doing some accessory work and taking things slow.

Warm-up

  • 3×10 Reverse Hyper (210#)
  • Inch Worms
  • Zombie Kicks
  • High Knees
  • Butt Kicks
  • Arm Circles

Strength

6 Sets

  • 5 Strict C2B Pull-ups

I did a couple sets before class started and the rest in between my early deadlift sets. Felt really explosive with them today and that’s an extra set from what I’ve been doing.

Deadlifts

  • 10×45#
  • 5×155#
  • 5×225#
  • 5×265#
  • 5×305#
  • 5×335#
  • 5×365#
  • 5×405#

Don’t really like to make a bigger jump than previous jumps, especially at the end like that, but everyone else was waiting on me. Did 405 for a triple recently so wanted 5 today. Feels good to be pulling 400+ again. Wore the belt starting with 305#.

Conditioning

E2M 12:00

  • 3 Bear Complex (135#)
  • 10 Wall Balls (25#, 10′)

Nice quad burner. Rounds were 42-40-41-41-41-40 seconds with all touch-n-go reps.

Gymnasty

5 Sets

  • 30s Handstand hold + 2 Strict HSPU

I wanted to increase the difficulty of the handstand holds that were programmed so I thought trying to do some handstand push-ups after would be a good test. Nearly failed in the first set. Was getting some nasty over extension in sets 4 and 5 but I completed them all without coming off the wall after the hold.

Accessory

10:00 EMOM (alt)

  • 12 Weighted GHD Sit-ups (20# MB)
  • 5 Russian Dips (heels on ground out front)
