Quads of Sore-y

Sunday afternoon I spent 4 hours processing a bunch of reclaimed lumber… pulling nails, cleaning up the wood, and then cutting it down in to more manageable pieces. My back was really tight from so much bending over.

Walked 18 holes yesterday and was super sore. My legs kept giving out while walking and anytime I had to walk downhill I almost fell on my face. Quads are so fucking sore! Today I’ve started walking down the stairs backwards. I don’t think I even get this sore from “Karen.” Went to the 5pm class today.

Active Life – Shoulder Flexion 9

2 Sets Each Arm

  • 100m Single Arm OH Carry (40# DB)
  • 30s

Was supposed to be a minute rest between arms but I had to rush it to get done before class started.

Warm-up

2 Rounds

  • 15 Push-ups
  • 10 Shoulder Rolls
  • 10 PVC Passes
  • 200m Run

Strength

Bench Press (6×2 @ 80-85%)

** After each working set complete 5 strict pull ups.

  • 10×45#
  • 6×95
  • 4×135
  • 2×165
  • 2×185
  • 2×205
  • 5x2x215

I’ve definitely lost a lot from my 290 pound max. I did my pull-ups on the rope by reaching up as high as I could. Each set I alternated which hand was high.

Conditioning

20:00 AMRAP

** Alternate rounds with a partner. Finish the round you’re on.

  • 15 Calorie Row
  • 50 Double Unders
  • 15 Double KB/DB Front Squats (30#)

Partnered with Jason, who was missing his rope so struggled on the DU. With my sore quads I wasn’t going heavy on the front squats and the thirty pound dumbbells turned out to be just fine. I missed 3 or 4 times on my first set of double unders but then got 4 sets unbroken. Started out by pulling 1,400+ cal/hr and went faster each round, getting around 1,700 on the 5th round. I was probably though about 12 calories when the clock ticked over, but then we each finished out our 5th rounds.
