One Extra = One Too Many

Last night my legs felt really heavy. Probably from the thrusters and single leg deadlifts, but possibly also a bit from Saturday’s work on the Airdyne and rower. Today I posted about weeks five and six of calorie counting. Our buddy Bryan was in town today, so we had a bro sesh.

Warm-up

  • Bottom Squat Hold
  • PVC Passes
  • Kip Swings

Gymnastics

E50S – 8 Sets

  • 5 Bar Muscle-ups

Wore my newer set of Bear KompleX grips today and they are much better for bar muscle-ups, which is good to know. Felt really good on every set and even better than when I did this many EMOM a couple of weeks ago. Improves my 30 rep time to 4:27 and 40 to 6:07 compared to 5:17 and 7:16 doing it as an EMOM.

After we finished I was helping someone else and did one more bar muscle-up with my grips off. It was enough to blow out my hand and I got a huge blood blister! I’m still so pissed it happened from that one rep. I hope it heals fast and there isn’t a bunch of bar work in Open Workout 19.1.

Weightlifting

Squat Snatch

  • 5×20 kg
  • 3×40
  • 3×50
  • 3×60
  • 2×65
  • 1×70
  • 1×75
  • 1×80
  • 1×85
  • 2 Misses @ 88
  • Miss @ 87
  • 87
  • Miss @ 88

Some old thing for me where I get it overhead without a problem but can’t stabilize it. Happy to make 87 though, which is 192 pounds. I haven’t done that since February 6, 2017 when I did 205.

Power Clean & Push Jerk

  • 3×60 kg
  • 3×70
  • 2×80
  • 1×90
  • 1×95
  • 1×100
  • 1×110

Squat snatches have historically aggravated my back and it was feeling tight, especially after several misses, so I didn’t even try to squat clean anything. Stay healthy! Felt pretty good with the cleans and push jerks. I did belt up for the last one, which is about 243 pounds.
