Memorial Weekend

Walked 18 holes yesterday. My hamstrings and hips are a little tight, probably from all of the lunges. Out in the garage in the early afternoon.

Active Life – Hips

Warm-up

  • 5:00 Airdyne (1.46 miles)
  • 15/15 Lateral Leg Swings
  • 20 Groiners
  • 1:00/1:00 Samson Stretch

Workout

  • Romanian Deadlifts
    • 8×45#
    • 8×135
    • 8×185
    • 8×225
    • 2x8x255
  • Rest
  • 60 Sumo Deadlifts (225#)

All RDLs were done with a neutral grip. For the Sumos I wanted to do 10×6 and was able to. Alternated my mix grip each set. Finished in 4:44. Wasn’t sure how my back would do coming back to these after the trip and slacking most of the week after.

Active Life – Back Max

3 Rounds

  • 60s Front Rack Hold (165#)
  • 50m/50m Single Arm Farmer Carry (70#)

That hold was no cake walk in round one. I focused on controlling my breathing to get me through. Finished in 7:24.

Don’t need anything more than those pieces for the day since I turned strength into some conditioning. Looking forward to the three-day weekend.

I'm searching for the perfect golf swing and my first hole-in-one. I'm addicted to CrossFit. I work for Automattic.
