Interference

My back is a little tight from yesterday.

We got in the lifting from yesterday that was programmed for people not redoing the Open workout. Felt heavy today.

Conditioning

The programmed workout had a bunch of pull-ups and a ton more snatches. No thanks so I whipped up an idea using movements we still might see in the Open. Kept with the mash-up theme that’s been going on Tuesdays.

  • 10:00 AMRAP
    • 10 HSPU
    • 20 cal Row
    • 50 DU
  • 10:00 Rest
  • For Time:
    • 12-10-8 DB Thrusters (50#)
    • 9-7-5 MU

I went for it today on the handstand push-ups and surprised myself by doing 4 sets without coming off the wall! The first set was fast and smooth. The other sets were a bit slower with some short pauses resting on my head. Couldn’t believe it! I only missed one dub at 47 in the second round. Finished exactly 4 rounds with 2 seconds to spare.

Yep, dumbbell thrusters are still terrible. Didn’t realize how much they interfere with muscle-ups too. Did all of the thrusters unbroken. Wanted to go for it on that first set of muscle-ups, but I had to come down after 5. Went 2-2 to finish the 9. I think I got a double to start the round of 7 and then failed on the next double, so I stuck to singles the rest of the way. The thrusters got my heart racing so much I had to take long breaks to make sure I made each muscle-up. Finished in 9:50.
