Gettin’ Flexy

My hamstrings are a little more sore today. Shortly after waking up I did the 2nd video in the ROMWOD welcome path, which focused on hamstrings, hips, and low back. I’m so inflexible! Feels better than other yoga stuff I’ve done and you can definitely feel things opening up as you hold the poses for several minutes. Went to the 5:30pm class.

Warm-up

  • Crossover Symmetry Activation
  • 3 Sets
    • 10 Toe Touches
    • 20 Hollow Rocks
    • 30s Bottom Squat Hold
  • 200m Run
  • Back Squat
    • 8×45#
    • 8×135#

Strength

E3M – 5 Sets

  • 8 Back Squats (185#)
  • 8/8 Kroc Rows (53#)

I used a controlled descent on the squats and put some focus into driving my knees out. Really tried to pull the rows with my lats and started each one from a dead stop at the ground. Worked up a nice sweat.

Conditioning

8:00 AMRAP

  • 10 Push Press (75#)
  • 30 DU
  • 10 Hang Snatch (75#)
  • 30 DU

Bryan based this off a recent Outlaw workout he did. I really liked it. Missed 1 double under in the middle somewhere and then missed right at the end with 2 seconds left as I was trying to speed them up to finish the set of 30 I was on. Ended up with 4 rounds plus the push press and 24 dubs. Snatches started to burn at the end of rounds 3 and 4.

Midline

  • 4:00 Plank (hands)

While the class did them in a tabata I just kept going. The last 2 was a mental struggle after the shoulder focused metcon and I was really shaking. Finished up with Crossover Symmetry Recovery.

Did another ROMWOD while watching TV later.
