Build it Back

Out in the garage after 9:30am.

Active Life – Bulletproof Shoulders 7

3 Rounds

  • 10/10 Single Arm RKB Swing (35#)
  • 10/10 Single Arm Suitcase Deadlift (53#)

4 Rounds

  • 50m Farmer Carry (2×90#)
  • 10/10 Shoulder Nerve Flossing (10 palms down and palms up)
  • 45s Rest

Holy shit! Those carries got rough to hold on to. I finally figured out a good way to strap in the weights without them banging up my legs.

Strength

Back Squat

  • 10×45#
  • 5×95
  • 5×135
  • 5×165
  • 5x5x185

I don’t have my new rack installed yet and there is a big tool on one of my jerk blocks, so I took every set from the ground. The squats felt heavy, but have to build back up from somewhere.

Conditioning

Ran 2.02 miles in 20:36.

Shoulder Shit Show

Legs feel good after squatting yesterday. Went to the 4pm again, but did the Active Life stuff in my garage before heading to the gym.

Active Life – Bulletproof Shoulders 2

2 Rounds

  • 10/10 Single Arm RKB Swing (35#)
  • 10/10 Single Arm Suitcase Deadlift (35#)

Single Arm High Pull

  • 2×6/6 (25#)
  • 10/10 (30#)
  • 10/10 (35#)

Warm-up

  • 200m Run
  • 10 Push Ups
  • 200m Run
  • 15 Shoulder Rolls
  • 200m Run
  • 20 Hollow Rocks

Strength

Push Press

  • 10×45#
  • 6×95
  • 3×125
  • 3×145
  • 3×165
  • 3×185
  • 3×205

Far from the 5×225 (plus cleaning it) I did in January 2017. Maybe could have done 5-10 pounds more today.

Conditioning

21-18-15-12-9

  • Push Press (95#)
  • T2B
  • Burpees

I went 12-9, 10-8, 8-7, 7-5, and 9 on the push presses, knowing that going unbroken from the start would be a bad idea. Of course that weight is going to feel light after the strength reps, but this workout is a lot of shoulders. For the toes to bars I did 6-5-5-5, 5-5-4-4, 5-5-5, and then singles for the 12 and 9. The good news is my shoulder felt pretty good. Actually surprised I was able to get through 11 good sets before dropping to singles, so taking 4 months off the movement didn’t set me back too much. Tried to keep a pretty good pace on the burpees. Finished in 16:18.

Heading out of town in the morning for a golf weekend!

Lift Heavy Shit

I really did have plans to hit a garage workout yesterday, but I was tired and decided on another rest day. Wasn’t missing the 10am class today, except I walked in and it is actually a 9am on Saturdays! Oh well, I was able to take advantage of the empty gym and was kind of nice to do my own thing.

Warm-up

  • Bottom Squat Hold
  • 10/10 Leg Swings
  • Dead Hang
  • 2 Sets
    • 50′ Walking Lunge
    • 10/10 Single Arm KBS (35#)

  • 6×115#
  • 20 DU
  • 4×135#

Conditioning

This was one programmed at the gym during the week.

  • 10-8-6-4-2 Power Cleans (155-185-205-225-245#)

I did all single cleans. I missed 3 times in the first round of DU, did 2 rounds of 30-20, missed 5 times in the 4th round, and did the last round unbroken. Finished in 10:09. The bars sure got heavy after the first 2 weights, but it felt great to lift some shit.

  • 10:00
    • 8/8 Glute Bridges (3s hold)

  • 50 Ski Erg calories

The first set of push-ups took 40-45 seconds, the ski took 2:57, and finished at 5:02, so the last set of push-ups probably took about a minute.
