Broken Streak

Wednesday night I started to feel sore in my hamstrings from the 72 deadlifts on Tuesday. My shoulders already started to feel weird from the dumbbell overhead squats too I did that evening too.

Walked 18 yesterday and played one of the best rounds of my life, beating my best at the Sawmill by 7 strokes (did move up a tee from where I’ve been playing the last 2 years, but it wouldn’t make that big of a difference). It was a 4 over par 76!

Last night I started to get sore in my quads from the single arm OHS. Out in the garage later than usual tonight.

Hybrid Push Only

  • 3×10 Pull-ups
  • 3×20 Rack Chins
  • 3×20 Supinated Close-grip Lat Pull-downs (green bands)
  • 3×15 Hammer Curls (15-20-25#)
  • 3×20 Shoulder IYTs (CS Purple)

I had moved my car out of the garage for once, so I used the high pull-up bar, but still went 6-4 on the sets of 10. Saved the IYTs for after the metcon so I wouldn’t burn out my shoulders.

Conditioning

20:00 AMRAP

  • 10 Pull-ups
  • 5/5 Single Arm Front Rack Squats (25# KB)
  • 100m Ski Erg
  • 5/5 Suitcase Deadlifts (70# KB)
  • 10 H2H KBS (50#)

I forced myself to do all kipping pull-ups today, no butterfly. Wore my grips, but still ripped. 😦 My original plan was to try to do every set unbroken, but I only managed the first round. I was having a hard time on that bar. I broke them up to 6-4 the rest of the way until I felt my calluses in the final set of 4 and did that set 6-3-1. Too late. :’/ Ripped. I think it had something to do with how my grips were folding over and bunching up. Maybe I had them on too loose, because I wanted some slack for the front rack squats, which I probably didn’t need.

I did a quick switch of arms for the squats, though they were not a struggle at all. Should have added some weight to the kettlebell. I set the KB down after 5 and turned on the deadlifts to prevent any unnecessary strain from passing it across my body. Finished 7 rounds, the pull-ups, squats, and ski.
