Deal With the Devil

My quads and hamstrings were even more sore yesterday, but it was a rest day anyway. Spent all day working in my basement shop, which wore me out. My back was really tight at the end of the day, probably from a combination of that work and all of the hang cleans on Friday.

12:00 AMRAP

  • 6 Burpee Box Jump Overs (24/20″)
  • 8 OH DB Lunges (Right arm – 50/35#)
  • 12 T2B
  • 8 OH DB Lunges (Left arm – 50/35#)

Was able to do 2×6 for every round of toes to bars and didn’t wear grips. Good combination of movements. Finished 5+2.

Took a good deal of rest to recover.

  • EMOM 20 DU
  • Until 50 Devil Presses (40#)

My goal was sub 10 minutes, but after only 6 in the first round that seemed out of reach. Especially since I was missing a double under in the first few rounds. Finished in 10:34.

Started doing some handstand walk practice, but my back and shoulders were too burnt.

Devil is in the Details

My calves were still pretty sore yesterday. Enjoyed a good day with the family and just chilling today.

Active Life – Single Leg Bias

2 Rounds

  • 1:00/1:00 Sciatic Nerve Flossing
  • 1:00 Cat Camel
  • 20 Box Hamstring Curls
  • 20 Alternating Reverse Lunges (15# DBs)
  • 10 Alternating Kossacks

I’m terrible with my mobility for getting my leg up on those flosses. I liked the reverse lunges better than a forward lunge.

Conditioning

I saw this one from Miranda and saved it to my list as on option for the holidays.

5 Cycles

  • 2:00
    • Buy-in: 30 Hop Overs
    • AMRAP Devil Press (15# DBs)
  • 1:00 Rest

Those are the heaviest dumbbells here, which was fine with me. It took a couple of rounds to get the rhythm of the movement and it turned out to be “easier” than I thought, so I was able to push at the end. My reps were 16-18-18-19-21.

Active Life – Back Max

6 Rounds

  • 15 Sit-ups
  • 30s Plank

Little different using a rolled up towel for an AbMat, but it worked. Beat last time by 4 seconds with 5:53.
