Four By Three By Four

I walked 18 holes each of the last two days, during our end of the season tournament. Then rested up on Tuesday. My Dad came down on his way to Ohio yesterday otherwise I probably would have done something last night. I did get in a 45 minute ROMWOD though after skipping on Tuesday. I’ll do 2 today to make up for it.

Headed to the track after 10am and warmed up with a 400m easy jog.

Aerobic Capacity – Lactate Threshold

4 Cycles

  • 3 Sets
    • 400m (target – 1:53)
    • 30s Rest
  • 5:00 Rest

Finishes up 5 weeks worth of the AC programming. It still blows my mind how bad my “fatigue factor” is. Hinshaw says Rich’s 27% (when he started working with him) was one of the worst he had ever seen and mine is 34%. How close can I get to the 20-21% average?

The weather was great for running, about 65° with a nice breeze. I think this was my favorite workout so far. Felt good getting into a rhythm since there was only one distance and one pace. My splits were:

  1. 1:49 – 1:50 – 1:50
  2. 1:51 – 1:51 – 1:51
  3. 1:52 – 1:50 – 1:51
  4. 1:50 – 1:49 – 1:49

After resting a bit at home I did a 21 minute ROMWOD to catch up on the missed day.

Got to the gym a little before the 4:30 class started and did Crossover Symmetry Activation.

Snatch Push Press + OHS

Pause 3 seconds in the squat.

  • 1+5 20kg
  • 1+3 40
  • 1+2 50
  • 1+2 60
  • 1+1 70
  • 1+1 80
  • 1+1 85
  • 1+1 90
  • 1+1 95
  • Got down with 100 but lost it before getting up

I’ll take it. Wasn’t supposed to go any higher than a max snatch and I almost matched it. Needed to stay a little tighter. I put on the belt at some point, maybe with 70?

Tall Power Snatch + OHS

  • 3x20kg
  • 3×35
  • 3×40
  • 3×50
  • 3×55
  • 3×60
  • 3×65

I put on lifting straps for the 4 working sets. Saving my hands in this final week of the Vaughn program. Was able to get the power triple at the end, unlike last week where I had to get a little below parallel on the 3rd rep.

Snatch Deadlift

  • 5x90kg
  • 5×95
  • 3x5x100

Pause 3 seconds above knees on descent of each rep. I wore straps and the belt for every set. All that time under tension wiped me out. I’m glad these tempo deads are finished.

I also had the bright idea to do 20 GHD Sit-ups after each set, which was a deadly combo. After missing GHDs last week I wanted to make up for it this week by getting in both weighted and unweighted. We’ll see if that was a good idea or not.

Midline

  • 5×20 GHD Sit-ups

I’ll do another 21 min ROMWOD tonight and be caught up.
