I golfed on Friday, got busy working on the truck both Saturday and Sunday, and golfed again yesterday. So with the run last Thursday I hadn’t been in the gym or garage since Wednesday. Made myself go to the 4:30 class today, even though I should be pushing to get through these last 4 Active Life workouts.
- 4 Tall Muscle Cleans
- 4 Hang Power Cleans
- 4 Power Cleans
- 8 Burpees
I did 3 sets with the bar, then 75# and 95#.
I think I did TnG through 205 and then dropped every rep at the heavier weights. According to BTWB that was a PR triple for me, which I thought might be the case. With 245# I caught with really wide feet on the 2nd rep and didn’t have my elbows all the way under with the 3rd, but was able to save it.
- 8 Hang Power Cleans (135#)
- 12 Bar-facing Burpees
Chose not to Rx with the 165# since I already had in a bunch of cleans and then I could focus more on the burpees. Michelle gave me a good push because she Rx’d with the 110# so I couldn’t let her beat me. It was neck and neck but I was able to go unbroken on the last set to get a 4 burpee lead and then held on through the burpees.
So I did the 1st and 5th sets unbroken and I went 5-3 on the middle three sets. I made myself jump all of the burpees and I didn’t take any steps before jumping over the bar, so I’d take off right from wherever I jumped up to my hands. I think I did nearly every rep without a pause between the jump up and the jump over as well. Burned like hell though. Finished in 8:37.
Golf again tomorrow. 🙂
In other news, I’ve cleaned up my eating by getting meals from Factor 75 and the food is amazing. I was down 8 pounds already on the scale this morning. I haven’t been this “light” in a year and a half.
