Bottoms Up!

Yesterday my abs were a little sore from the 100 sit-ups on Wednesday. I walked 18 holes on the course. Got a bunch of yard work done today and finally got out to the garage around 6pm.

Bench Press

  • 10×45#
  • 10×95
  • 5×135
  • 5×175
  • 5×195
  • 5x5x215#

Why does this day always seem so heavy? Maybe not warmed up as much as the higher reps on that first day of the “week” in the program or possibly fatigued from it? Seriously… sets of 12 with 200 feel easier than this. This was a 5# increase over the last time.

Shoulder Press

  • 5×45#
  • 5×95
  • 5×115
  • 2x5x135
  • 5×140

My plan was to do 1 set at 135 and 2 at 140 but evidently I didn’t pay close enough attention to my notes. Last time I did 2 sets at 130 and 1 at 135, so I guess I ended up lining up with that.

Accessory

  • 3×30 alt DB Bench Press (50#)
  • 3×12/12 Half Kneeling Single Arm Bottoms Up KB Press (25#)
  • 3×15/15 Tricep Kickbacks (15-20-20#)
  • 3×15 Landmine Twists with 45# bar + 15# plate (video)

Fucked up here too and did these kickbacks instead of extensions. I get too used to remembering previous workouts on the program.

That was a lot of lifting. Took just over an hour. First time doing those twists and shit, they are deceiving. Counted left, center, right, center as 1 rep.

Performance Plus

3 Rounds

  • 30s Left – Bottoms Up KB Marching (25#)
  • 30s Rest
  • 30s Right – Bottoms Up KB Marching
  • 30s Rest

This bottoms up KB marching is similar to the presses on a difficulty level. My left arm starts to lose it but my right side is pretty solid. Program also calls for:

  • Foam Roll Lats – 30s/side
  • Thoracic Spine Extension Mobility

I’ll get these in tonight after dinner.

Conditioning

  • 15-10-5 Squat Clean (135#)
  • 150-100-50 DU

Was going to do some running around the block, which is about 700m, but I got rained out again. Thought about doing burpees again but figured the double unders would fatigue the legs more for the squats. I did the cleans 6-5-4, 6-4, and 5 unbroken. Finished in 9:22.
