Baby Swings

My shoulders and arms are in rough shape today. I couldn’t fall back to sleep last night, so by 6am I was fed up with it and got out of bed. Turned out to be a 2 coffee day and I’m still dragging ass. Went to the 4pm class.

Warm-up

  • Bottom Squat Hold
  • Dead Hang
  • Mini Ring Swings!!!
  • 2 Rounds
    • 1:00 Assault Bike
    • 10 Kip Swings
    • 10 PVC Good Mornings
    • 10 PVC Passes

First time I’ve been able to swing on the rings in months!! Could still feel my right shoulder when I got really deep in the swing so I only did a few. Making progress finally. Looking forward to being able to do ring muscle-ups again.

Weightlifting

  • 5×45#
  • 5×95
  • 3×135
  • 3×165
  • 3×185
  • 3×205
  • 3×225
  • 3×235

I did TnG through 185 and put the belt on for 225 or 235. The bar was feeling really heavy and it didn’t dawn on my until after class that I was feeling so terrible from a lack of sleep last night. The reps with 235 were harder than I can remember in many years and then I went for 245 and “Clarked” the first rep. Wow! For comparison, in June I was able to hit 245 for a triple, shortly after I started lifting again.

Conditioning

15:00 EMOM (alt)

  1. 12 cals Assault Bike
  2. 10 Power Cleans (115#, unbroken)
  3. 4 Pull-ups + 3 C2B Pull-ups + 2 Bar Muscle-ups

As soon as I saw this workout I knew I’d scale back from 135# and definitely glad I did with how I am feeling. The gymnastics minute was 5+4+3, but I wasn’t confident I could hold on to that, so I cut back. Possibly could have made it, but this was plenty hard enough. I dropped off the rig between every movement. That bike really blows up your legs. I need to use it more often because it’s a lot different from my Airdyne.

Hopefully I can get a good night of sleep and hit the gym tomorrow because I have a busy Saturday and probably won’t have time for a workout.

I'm searching for the perfect golf swing and my first hole-in-one. I'm addicted to CrossFit. I work for Automattic.
