Friday night my hamstrings started to get sorer. Maybe I’m using them more when I squat now after so much time off from heavy lifting, where I was really quad dominant before. Maybe some is from the step overs though?
Yesterday was a long and exhausting day playing in a scramble where the temp never got above 50°. Went to open gym for noon today.
24:00 EMOM (alt)
- 10 Thrusters (95/65#)
- 50 Double Unders
- 6 Burpee Box Jump Overs (24/20″)
- 12 T2B
After flying through my first set of the burpee box jump overs I thought about increasing to eight reps. I figured things would get rough and decided not too. Boy was I glad I made that call! In round four I started questioning why I had to make this a six rounder instead of five. I was cruising along pretty good but the thrusters were getting slower and slower and I was missing one or two double unders every round. My toes to bars were holding well with 6-6. Then in the 5th round I had to do 6-3-1-1-1, which really cut down on rest going into the thrusters. I was hurting at that point, but wasn’t putting the bar down. My final set of the burpee box jump overs had to be almost twice as slow as my other rounds. I had been doing so well at jumping up off the ground and rebounding right into the box jump until that point where I resorted to doing everything I could to finish. I had to do 3-3-2-1-1-1-1 to finish out the T2B. I thought I was going to puke and it took me a long time to recover. Worst workout I’ve created in a very long time!

- 7 Good Mornings (45#)
- 8 Evil Wheels
Tried doing good mornings with the same weight, but my back was really tight.
