Me & Box Squats

Feel good after the rest day. Out in the garage around 1pm.

Active Life – Single-leg Bias

Warm-up

  • 10/10 Eccentric Ankle Dorsiflexion
  • 30s/30s Foam Roll Quads
  • 5 Squat Press Outs (25# plate)

Workout – Box Squats

  • 6×45#
  • 6×95
  • 6×135
  • 3x6x185

Ugh. I’ve never been strong with these. Weak hammies! This was heavy enough for a start. I didn’t want to get stuck on the box and risk bailing the weight back towards my car!

Conditioning

Warmed up jerks with:

  • 10×45#
  • 5×95
  • 5×135
  • 5×165

5 Rounds

  • 50 Double Unders
  • 10 Push Jerks (185#)
  • 1:00 Rest

Not sure what I was thinking but I stopped spinning my rope at 40 reps in the first round. Every other round was unbroken dubs. I used the jerk blocks and did all singles. Was expecting the jerks to get near failure a few rounds in, but I was able to get faster and faster. Round times were 2:04 – 2:03 – 1:55 – 1:46 – 1:36 to finish at 13:22. That was my jam. Found it in the heavy section of the BTWB Fitness Level workouts.

Active Life – Back Max

6 Rounds

  • 15 Sit-ups
  • 30s Plank (elbows)

Ended up with a nice upper ab burn starting in round 4. Finished in 5:57.
