5 Rep Bench

I didn’t get out golfing yesterday because I found a bunch of water in the basement and spent almost 2 hours cleaning it up. I’m sore from that today. Went to open gym at noon.

Warm-up

3 Sets

  • 1:00 Assault Bike
  • 15 Reverse Hypers (90#)
  • 10 PVC Passes

Ended up with about 45 calories on the AB.

Strength

Bench Press

  • 5×45#
  • 5×95
  • 5×135
  • 5×175
  • 5×200
  • 5×220
  • 5×235
  • 5×245

My ass came off the bench a little in my last two reps, but that ties my old PR for a set of 5, when I had gotten my max up to 290. Can I hit 300 in the next few months?

Conditioning

25:00 EMOM (40s work / 20s rest)

  • H2H KBS (44#)
  • Plank
  • Jump Rope Singles
  • Sit-ups
  • Lateral Step Overs (14″)

I was getting 22 swings and 22 sit-ups each round. Never missed on the jump rope. Perfect little workout for today that didn’t get me breathing or sweating very hard. Ready for Murph tomorrow!

I wouldn’t mind getting out to golf but I need to do yard work and a bunch of other shit, so we’ll see.

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