Go Unbroken

Yesterday walked the golf course and the app said I was close to 7 miles. I guess I spent more time than usual walking back and forth trying to find my ball. First time of the year where we really got to feel the heat of the back 9 at Sawmill when you get out there in the trees with no breeze. Drank a lot more water than I have been and wore my Oakley’s instead of cheap sunglasses. Seemed to help prevent getting one of those sun headaches I often have trouble with. Also did a 45 minute ROMWOD at night. My legs were feeling a little tired all day after the Sunday workout and run.

Pre-workout

I was coaching this morning so got in early for my warm-up and snatches before class started.

Warm-up

  • Crossover Symmetry Activation
  • 2 Sets
    • 5s of StrongFit Tricep & Bicep Openers (10#)
    • 10 Reverse Hyper (210#)

Weightlifting

E2M – Squat Snatches

  • 4×45#
  • 4×75
  • 4×95
  • 2×115
  • 2×135
  • 2×155
  • 6 sets of 2×175

I wanted to get in 10 total sets, so planned on 4 sets with 175#. Set the clock for 12 rounds just in case it was feeling good. It was, so I kept going. Of course then I rush the 2nd rep in the 5th set and don’t get it pulled into the slot. Stepped right back up and hit it though. That was the only miss. When I exaggerate those knuckles down it really helps me keep it close and feels so much more solid. I did power snatch the final rep, but then stood up and did an OHS with it. Feeling a lot more solid snatching lately.

With Class Warm-up

3 Sets

  • 20 Push-ups
  • 10 Band Pull Aparts (green)

Gymnastics

  • Max Set – Pull-ups
  • 2:00 Rest
  • 3 sets
    • 50% of Max
    • 2:00 Rest

Regular kip again and wore the leather grips. I’m going to look for some new type of grips at Regionals this weekend. I knocked out 30 reps much easier than the 26 a couple weeks ago. That was good, so dropped off the bar; I’ll take the 4 rep PR. Did the 3 drop sets at 15 reps without any trouble. Really happy with how fast pull-ups came back. I think spending some time on ring rows when I was scaling helped out, not to mention more of the Pendlay and landmine rows lately. Wish I could butterfly though. 😦

Conditioning

4 Rounds

  • 200m Run
  • 10 Power Snatch (95#)

Holy shit did I underestimate this one. Went out running fast thinking it would be a quick one. Goal was unbroken on the snatches every round and that jacked my heart rate sky high, making it difficult to push the runs. Really wanted to put the bar down in the last 2 sets but held on. Finished in 7:20 and I guess I ripped open a finger in the process. Dammit!

Cooled down and did Crossover Symmetry Plyo.

Out in the garage for a quick afternoon session to catch up on Monday’s strength work.

Warm-up

  • 3 Rounds
    • 1:00 Air Dyne
    • 30s Bottom Squat Hold
  • 10 Back Squat (45#)
  • 8/8 Landmine Rows (45#)
  • 10 Back Squat (135#)
  • 8/8 Landmine Rows (55#)

Strength

E3M – 6 Sets

  • 12 Back Squats (185#)
  • 8/8 Landmine Rows (65#)

It’s hot in the garage now that summer has finally arrived. This combo wasn’t easy today but not as hard as I was expecting.

Murph Work

7 Sets

  • 20s Push-ups
  • 30s Rest

Went 20-20-17-17-13-12-12 for 111 total with all reps being chest-to-deck. Might as well do the extra work now so it seems easy during Murph on Monday. Already had done 3×20 this morning too.

Need to ROMWOD tonight after all of that work.
