More Snatching

Went to the 4:30 class. Not doing any single-leg bias work today.

Warm-up

  • Bottom Squat Hold
  • PVC Passes
  • Air Squats
  • Stretching
  • 3 Sets
    • 3 Hang Power Snatch
    • 3 Hang Squat Snatch
    • 5 Burpees

I used 20-25-30kg for my sets.

Weightlifting

All power snatches for me (or at least for heavy reps) until my back is feeling much better.

  • 3x40kg
  • 3×50
  • 3×60
  • 65
  • 70
  • 75
  • 80
  • 83
  • 3 @ 80

Wasn’t feeling the greatest with the 83 (183#), so I dropped off a bit and did some drop sets.

Conditioning

3 Rounds

  • 20 Hang Power Cleans (95#)
  • 20 Front Squats (95#)
  • 20 Push Presses (95#)

Wore my belt. My sets were all over the map. Rested more than I should have and finished in 10:47.

Active Life – Back Max

12:00 for quality

  • 10 Alternating Bird Dog
  • 10 Alternating Dead Bug
  • 20 Alternating Side Plank

Each rep was counted by doing a 2 breath hold and then switching sides. Harder than expected. I can see how this stuff is supposed to help with core stamina. Got through 10 side planks in the 2nd time through.

Match Me

Quads and triceps are sore from “Coe” yesterday. Unsure if I should go to the 4:30 class with so much barbell but I’ve been feeling pretty good, so I went.

Warm-up

10:00 EMOM (alt)

  • 8 Burpees
  • 3 Push Press + 2 Press from Split + 1 Split Jerk

I used 45# for 2 sets, 75 for 2, and 95 for the last.

Weightlifting – Split Jerks

  • 3×95#
  • 3×115
  • 3×135
  • 3×155
  • 3×175
  • 3×195
  • 3×215

Felt good to put up a bit of weight.

Conditioning – Partner

  • 8:00 AMRAP
    • 50 Front Squats (115)
    • 50 Front Squats (135)
    • AMRAP Front Squats (155)
  • 3:00 Rest
  • 8:00 AMRAP
    • 50 Hang Power Cleans (115)
    • 50 Hang Power Cleans (135)
    • AMRAP Hang Power Cleans (155)

Small class today. Partnered with Brandi and we both scaled back from the Rx, which was 135/155/185 for men. Especially since this is a modification of the CompTrain Class workout today but was programmed for teams of 3 as 7 minute AMRAPs, so going with only 2 is half as much rest before it’s your turn again.

I started off both times. Did 25 unbroken front squats with 115, 15-10 with 135, and 10-10 with 155. Brandi held on at the end for 14. On the cleans went 15-10 with 115, 7-9-9 with 135, and 7-9 with 155. I tried to hold on until time ran out but had to drop it with 10-15 seconds left. Brandi got in another rep.

Definitely wouldn’t have wanted to go heavier as a partner workout or the sets would have gotten really small.

Weight Wednesday

I was a lot more sore in my lower body than expected the last couple of days. At first I was thinking it was the thrusters, but it could have been from the deadlifts I did Saturday. Went to the 4:30 class.

Warm-up

  • 3 Sets
    • 7 PVC Passes
    • 7 Good Mornings (PVC)
    • 7 Supermans
    • 7 Power Snatches (PVC)
  • Shoulder Stretching
  • Power Snatch
    • 2x3x20kg
    • 2x3x40kg

Weightlifting

E90S – 15:00 (10 Sets) – 3 Power Snatches

  • 45kg
  • 50
  • 55
  • 60
  • 64
  • 67
  • 70
  • 72
  • 74
  • 76

I haven’t done a lifting EMOM in a really long time. Pretty happy getting up to about 168# and every set was touch-n-go. I did start pausing at my hip on the way back down with the last 3 weights.

Conditioning

3 Cycles

  • 4:00 AMRAP
    • 25 cal Row
    • 20 Power Cleans (60-52-44kg)
    • 15 Burpee Box Jump Overs (24”)
  • 4:00 Rest

Weight decreases each cycle. We actually started each cycle where we left off instead of from the top. Even with the different starting points I did the exact same number of reps every round, getting 10 of the burpee box jump overs along with all of the calories and all of the cleans. In the first cycle I did 7 power cleans and then went to singles. In the 2nd I did 5-5 and then singles. At the end I was able to do 7-7-6. There was a fair bit of travel between stations, which I was glad to have. I did strap on my belt for all of the cleans because my back was already getting tight during the snatches. No tweaks, but I’ll have to take it easy the next couple of days.

 

Get This Halloween Candy Out of Here

Upper back and biceps are sore. Was a few minutes late to the 4:30 class because my cleaning lady held me up.

Warm-up – 3 Sets

  • 10 Russian KBS (35#)
  • 5 American KBS (35#)
  • 4 Pause Power Cleans (45#)
  • 3 Hang Squat Cleans (45#)

Weightlifting

Pause Squat Clean + Hang Squat Clean

  • 95#
  • 95
  • 115
  • 135
  • 155
  • 175
  • 185
  • 195
  • 205

Been quite a long time since I squat cleaned that much. Last time I tried 175 in a complex I threw out my back.

Conditioning – Partner WOD

  • 150 American KBS (25/20/15/10/5 reps)
  • 150 cal Row
  • 150 Burpees (25/20/15/10/5 reps)
  • 75 MB Chest Pass (3-5 yards apart, 20#)
  • 75 Synchro Sit-ups

Partnered up with Weston. The first 3 movements are one person working at a time according to the rep schemes and then we split up the row into 45-30 each to keep switches to a minimum. I paced the 45, but felt good and was keeping 1500+ cal/hr on the set of 30. I recovered well for the 25 burpees and went out hot. Lost some gas and was a bit slow on the 20, but then cycled really well on the 15-10-5. The chest passes are just weird, but I think 30# would have been fine. Took us 25:08.

Seemed Minor

Sore from the pull-ups yesterday. Last hot day. Hopefully. Went to the 4:30 class.

Warm-up

  • 3×10 Reverse Hyper (140#)
  • Bottom Squat Hold
  • Dad Hang
  • 9:00 EMOM (alt)
    • 100m Run
    • 10 Glute Bridges (w/ pause)
    • 15 Hollow Rocks + 20s Hollow Hold

Strength – RDL

  • 10×45#
  • 10×95
  • 10×135
  • 10×165
  • 5x10x185

I put on the belt for the sets with 185 just to be extra safe. On rep 7 in the final set I felt a little something.

Warmed up with 6×45#, 6×95, and 3×135 cleans.

Conditioning

16:00 AMRAP

  • 5 Broad Jumps
  • 4 Burpees
  • 3 Cleans (165#)

I felt my back on the first two broad jumps, but then was fine through the workout. Made sure not to get sloppy with the cleans. I was 1 clean shy of finishing the 14th round.

Jumped back on the Reverse Hyper for another 3x10x140#. I better feel good to golf tomorrow!

Ugly Combo

Another got one! Went to the 4:30 class.

Warm-up

  • 3×10 Reverse Hyper
  • Bottom Squat Hold
  • Dead Hang
  • 5 Sets
    • 5 Clean Pulls
    • 4 Power Cleans
    • 3 Front Squats
    • 2 Squat Cleans

I used 45# for 3 sets and 75# for 2 sets.

Weightlifting

Clean Pull + Power Clean + Squat Clean

  • 1 @ 95#
  • 1 @ 115#
  • 5 @ 135#
  • 5 @ 155#

Stayed light. I’m not going to rush back and fuck things up again, especially since a 175# clean did me in on the last tweak.

Conditioning

4 Rounds

  • 25 Deadlifts (135#)
  • 25 Wall Balls (20#, 10′)

Ewww! I cut back from the 165# Rx and wore my belt, loosening it up during wall balls. I went 10-8-7 on each round of deadlifts. 15-10 on the first 3 rounds of wall balls and then 25 unbroken to finish in 9:37. Went much better than I expected.

All 40 Minutes

My outer pecs started getting sore early afternoon yesterday, must be from all of those push presses. Had a fun day and got some sun. In with the crew at noon today.

Warm-up

  • 3×10 Reverse Hyper (140#)
  • Bottom Squat Hold
  • 6 Power Cleans (45#)
  • 6 Power Cleans (95#)

Conditioning

40:00 AMRAP

  • 6 Power Cleans (115#)
  • 8 Box Jump Overs (no touch, 18″)
  • 10 Ring Dips
  • 8 Box Jump Overs (no touch, 18″)
  • 6 Power Cleans 115/75#
  • 400m Run

I’ve been wanting to program something really long for a couple of months and was finally able to fit it in. I did fast singles on the cleans the entire workout. Ring dips were 2×5, except one round I lost focus and did 6-4.  Was watching my splits and kept a pretty steady pace right from round 1. Finished 8+18, which makes 102 cleans, 136 jump overs, 84 ring dips, and 2 miles of running. I have a feeling the effects of this one will hit me in a few hours.

Midline – 5 Sets

  • 5 Evil Wheels
  • 20 Leg Lifts
  • 40 Flutter Kicks

For the last 3 sets of flutter kicks, I held a hollow while doing them. I had been keeping my hands under my ass for the first 2 rounds.
