Heavy Russians

Walk 18 holes yesterday in some great weather for golf. Went to the 4pm class today.

Warm-up

2 Rounds

  • 200m Run
  • 10 Pass Throughs (PVC)
  • 10 Overhead Squats (PVC)

Strength

Front Squats

  • 6×45#
  • 6×95
  • 3×135
  • 3×165
  • 3×185
  • 3x3x205

Feels much heavier than it should. I guess that’s what a year and a half of not squatting does for your legs and midline. I keep telling myself, “Slow and steady progress.”

Oh, I did these front squats instead of a complex of 1 snatch push press + 2 OHS. My shoulder still does not like that deep position of the overhead squat.

Conditioning

4 Rounds

  • 30 Russian KBS (70#)
  • 30 Sit-ups
  • 30 Calorie Row

Good one with the heavy kettlebell. Did everything unbroken without any trouble. Started with around 1,450 cal/hr in round 1, then got a little slower each round. Finished in 14:21.

Little weird that the women’s scale for the row was 21, but then Casey told me it came from CompTrain instead of the Krypton affiliate programming, which seems to always use a ratio of 5/4.

Active Life – Bulletproof Shoulders 11

Skipped the special warm-up since I was plenty warm.

3 Sets (each arm)

  • 8 Single Arm Shoulder Press (50# DB)
  • 45s Rest between arms

All aboard the struggle bus!
