Walked 18 on Friday in some perfect golf weather. I planned to bench and do a metcon yesterday but got busy doing other stuff. Since I’ll be gone Monday to Monday, it’s not bad to delay my benching until today since I won’t be able to get in the next one until the following Tuesday. Worked out early at 9am with the crew because the girls had places to go be. Wasn’t excited about the early morning, but it worked out well since I had a lot to do around the house.
- 3×10 Reverse Hyper (140#)
- Bottom Squat Hold
- Dead Hang
- 5 Back Squat (45#)
- 5 Shoulder Press (45#)
- 5 Back Squat (85#)
- 5 Shoulder Press (85#)
- Back Squat (135#)
- Rest 1/2 as long as it took
- Air Squat
I went 9-6, 10, 5, 10, 9-6 on the HSPU and they felt good. Would have been interesting to try all sets unbroken. I took my time on the back squats, but didn’t drop the bar during any set. Finished in 9:16, so my rest period was 4:38. I wanted to go for more push-ups than I usually do so went 15-10, 10-10, 10-5, 10-10, 10-10-5. They were getting hard, but I was happy with that after the handstand push-ups. Took me 6:38.
Accessory – 6 Rounds
- 30s Double DB/KB OH Walk (40# DBs)
- 30s Rest
- 30s Superman-Banana (Banana Rolls)
- 30s Rest
In the afternoon I got in my bench workout.
No B.S. Bench Press – Week 5
It called for 5×4 at the base weight + 15-20#, so I added 15. I’ve been staying on the low side of the increases and barely making it through my sets.
Last 3 sets were a grind. I shouldn’t try this after burning out my shoulders earlier in the day.
