Jerk Block Squats

Yesterday I played a quick 2.5 hour round of golf riding in a cart. Earlier this week I posted some thoughts about the CrossFit Games changes. Go check it out.

Out in the garage around 11. Had to fix one of the adjustable dumbbells first, which got bent when it tipped over last week.

15:00 for quality

  • 10 Pass Throughs
  • 30s Double DB Overhead Hold (35# DBs)
  • 60m Farmer Carry (53/50# KBs)
  • 10 Push-up T

Got through 5 rounds. I thought I was going light for the overhead hold, but those were tough.

Strength

Back Squat

  • 10×45#
  • 5×95
  • 5×135
  • 5×165
  • 5×185
  • 5×195
  • 5×205
  • 5×215
  • 5×225

My back felt weird in the 135 or 165 set and I got a little worried. Things loosened up and I concentrated on my positions. Those last sets felt heavy. What a difference 2 years makes. It’ll come back though if I keep slowly increasing the weight and/or reps each squat session.

I was squatting off the jerk blocks again. Not ideal. Last Sunday I did a bunch of work compressing the gym stuff and cutting down on reserved floor space to prep for parking two vehicles in the garage. Need to get that new rack up.

Conditioning

2.09 Mile Run

Feeling better with my running. Took 19:34. Still a long way to go.

Finishing up lunch and then I’ll mow the lawn before spending more time reorganizing the garage.
