No B.S.

Yesterday I walked 18 holes on the golf course and was pretty tired from being up late the night before to see Dark Phoenix. Didn’t get enough sleep last night either, but feeling pretty good. Out in the garage to start close to 10:30.

Year of the Engine – Interval

15 Rounds

  • 30s Row
  • 1:00 Rest

Started at 1:32/500m and wanted to see how it went. Felt right, so I stuck to that pace. Definitely a tight back as I got deeper into the intervals, which meant I couldn’t get out of the gate as quick as I normally would and then had to catch up to the pace I wanted. I got 163-164 meters every round.

 

Strength

Bench Press

  • 5×45#
  • 5×95
  • 5×135
  • 5×165
  • 5×195
  • 4x5x215
  • Max 215 (8)

I’m starting up a cycle (probably two) of the No B.S. Bench Press Program, which has always worked really well. My goal is to bench 300 pounds before I turn 40 at the end of the year. Two weeks ago I matched the 5×245 I did a few weeks before hitting a 290 PR, so I should be pretty close.

The weight felt a little heavy as I worked up and the working sets were a struggle. Maybe I’m fatigued from benching in the workout on Thursday. Was able to get 8 reps on the max set, when it was feeling like 5 or 6 might be today’s limit. Even with the spotter arms I still like to stay away from failure when I’m lifting alone, so 1-2 more reps isn’t out of the question.

Conditioning

12:00 AMRAP

  • 4 Strict C2B Chin-ups (fat bar)
  • 8 Box Jumps Overs (27″)
  • 12 Hand Release Push-ups
  • 16 Reverse Lunges

Good little workout where I was able to get right in to the next movement and keep a steady pace through the entire workout. I got 6 rounds, the chin-ups, and 2 box jumps.
