Fifteens

Was thinking about doing “Linda” to finish out the year just like in 2015, but we weren’t up for it today and my back has been a little rough this week so would not have been the best idea. I actually didn’t even get out of bed until almost 10:30. I can’t remember the last time I was in bed past 10. Worked out with Bryan and Doug at noon. Did some bottom squat holds and shoulder stretching to warm-up.

15:00 EMOM (alt)

  • 5 Strict Pull-ups
  • 7 Strict Ring Dips
  • 10 Pistols

Been a long time since doing a pistol. Always rough to get the feel for them again but then after 10 reps or so it comes back.

Conditioning

15:00 AMRAP

  • 20 T2B
  • 10 Bar-facing Burpees
  • 20 Hang Power Snatches (75#)
  • 10 Step-ups (24″)

Went much smoother than we expected. I surprised myself by being able to stick to sets of 4 toes to bars the entire way. Went 8-6-6 on the snatches and should have tried 11-9 or something like that. I figured I’d end up doing step-ups instead of box jumps and when I got to that movement in the first round it was an easy decision. Finished 3 rounds plus the T2B and burpees. Might have been able to get in one snatch, but collapsing to the ground felt like a better idea.

Feels good to be back into some kind of consistency. I think I’m going to join Bryan on the Hybrid Performance WOD program starting this week, though still finish out these last few weeks of the Thruster Attack.
