Double Max

The front of my right ankle feels really weird. No trip to the gym today with 0.5″ of ice out there. I hit a garage session in the afternoon.

Active Life – Back Max

Warm-up – 3 Rounds

  • 5 Cat Camel Rock Backs
  • 5 Inchworms

Workout

  • 10 Sumo Deadlift (45#)
  • 10 Sumo Deadlift (95#)
  • 10 Sumo Deadlift (135#)
  • 3 Sets
    • 16 Sumo Deadlift
    • 30s/30s Sciatic Nerve Flossing

I used 165-185-205#. After the 2nd working set I noticed it was supposed to be 18 reps. Whoops! So I bumped up 20 more pounds which I hadn’t planned on.

I haven’t been wearing a lifting belt at all lately. My thinking is that I shouldn’t rely on it as a crutch and hopefully I’ll build everything in my back a lot better to protect itself.

Active Life – Back Max

Yep, a double Back Max day because the first one looked like a good way to warm up. Between Back Max and the Hips program there has been no escaping deadlifting pretty much every day, so it’s been hard to pair up the two programs. Less than 20 workouts in each program left though.

5 Rounds

  • 30s Supinated Deadlift Hold (205#)
  • 30s/30s Single Arm Overhead Hold (53#)
  • 10 Push-ups
  • 10 Push-up Shoulder Taps (3s hold)
  • 5/5 Single Arm Ring Rows

I kept moving to give it double duty as conditioning. Took me 20:30 to finish. The deadlift hold almost fell out of my fingers in the last two rounds. I did a push-up before each shoulder tap. Made the ring rows harder each round by moving forward a bit. Those are a neat movement.
