No Lungs

After cooling off and sitting at home last night I was feeling wrecked. My back wasn’t so bad but my body just felt beat up and exhausted. Woke up feeling good this morning and a little sore, but nothing compared to the day after my first attempt.

Warm-up

  • Bottom Squat Hold
  • Pass throughs
  • PVC Good Mornings
  • Body Rotations

Conditioning

15:00 AMRAP

  • 30 Double Unders
  • 12 Wall Balls (20#, 10′)
  • 3 Muscle-ups

Was feeling really good about unbroken dubs and I think I jinxed myself because then I missed 4 times in the final set after no misses. I made it through exactly 8 rounds with about 10 seconds left but didn’t feel like picking up the rope. All muscle-ups were unbroken without a problem.

My lungs didn’t seem to want to function today after working so hard last yesterday.

Rested 10:00 and then…

7 Rounds

  • 10 Push Jerks (115#)
  • 10 Pull-ups

We scaled it and turned it into a 3 main follow-the-leader. As written it was supposed to be 10 rounds solo of 10+10 with 135#. This was plenty of work and hard as hell as it we did it anyway. I finished after about 10:15.

Had my grips on really loose due to the jerks, but then they bunch up so much on the pull-ups that they cause more harm than help. Tore them off after the 2nd round. Did pull-ups unbroken until the last set where I had so much sweat I was slipping off the rig and did 8-2.

Much harder day than it looked like. Bryan was beat too so not sure how much was due to my 2nd 17.1 try or that first 15 minutes.
