Get Out Front

On the rower by 8am with no warm-up. πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ

Engine Builder – Anaerobic

5 Rounds

  • 400m Row (high intensity)
  • 5:00 Rest

Was thinking maybe 1:40/500m before I started, but I quickly felt that was too slow. Results were:

  • 1:18.8 – 34 cals
  • 1:18.5 – 34 cals
  • 1:18.2 – 34 cals
  • 1:17.9 – 34 cals
  • 1:17.5 – 34 cals

Looking at some other’s results on BTWB I probably should have gone harder. It’ll take me some time to get the feel for my different rowing paces. I haven’t done this stuff in a couple of years.

 

Went to the 4pm class.

Warm-up

  • 10 Shoulder Rolls (PVC)
  • 10 Overhead Squats (PVC)
  • 10 Snatch Balance (PVC)
  • 5 High Hang Snatch (PVC)
  • 5 Hang Snatch (PVC)
  • 5 Snatch (PVC)

That got me warmed up!

Weightlifting

High Hang Squat Snatch + Hang Squat Snatch + Squat Snatch

  • 45#
  • 75
  • 95
  • 115
  • 5 Sets 135

Wore my lifting shoes for the first time in two years. It was programmed for the working sets to be at 75% and if I go off my lift from a couple of weeks ago that would be 145. My right shoulder is feeling a little weird though so I stayed lighter and tried to work on a few things like a wider beginning stance and my speed. Started feeling snappy a few sets in to the 135.

In one of the sets I somehow hit my nose on the way back down. That was a first! Good thing it was a bar without center knurling.

Conditioning

15:00 AMRAP

  • 9 Deadlifts (155#)
  • 12 Hand Release Push-ups
  • 15 Sit-ups

I knew this one would be quick with no real reason to rest other than in the push-ups, so I started off hot out of the gate. It’s fun to do that from time to time and see how many people will follow along. πŸ™‚ Deadlifts were all unbroken. I went 7-5 every round of push-ups and they slowed down but I never hit failure. Sit-ups felt fine the whole way. That’s another 180 reps today after doing 200 on Saturday! I got through 12 rounds the deadlifts and 2 push-ups.

Skill

Worked on handstand walking after class for about 15 minutes. Got a few good attempts in, but was really working to keep my legs together plus get the forward lean going.
