Bagel Bites Beat

My shoulders are feeling something today. Not sure if it’s from so many snatches and/or bar muscle-ups on Wednesday or the double overhead holds yesterday. Went to the 4pm class.

Sing it to the tune of the Bagel Bites commercial!

Warm-up

7:00 AMRAP

  • 50′ Front Rack KB Carry (35# KBs)
  • 8 Up-Downs
  • 10 Plyo Lunges

Wasted some time putting pants away and another time putting my sweatshirt away. Still made it through 4 rounds plus the carry.

Strength

3 Sets

  • 50′ Front Rack KB Lunges (53# KBs)
  • 1:00 Rest

Conditioning

3 Rounds

  • 500m Row
  • 30 Walking Lunges
  • 20 Burpees
  • 10 cal Assault Bike
  • 1:00 Rest

I averaged around a 1:49 pace on the rower and took right off on my lunges. Felt good on the burpees and tried to push on the bike a little. My rounds were 4:33, 4:34, and 4:35. Good one to just go and don’t stop.

Gymnastics

E90S

  • 3×5 Toes to Bars

As I’ve been doing with the gymnastics volume lately my plan was to go until I had to break. I made 3 rounds taking 35-40 seconds to get through and then had to do 5-5-3-1-1 in the 4th round. Sixty T2B in just over 5 minutes ain’t too bad.

Uneven Dumbbells

Back to work yesterday and it was a rest day. My lats and biceps are sore. Went to the 4pm class.

Warm-up

  • 3 Rounds
    • 1:30 Row (1:00 moderate / :30 recover)
    • 10 DB Sumo DL (30# DBs)
    • 20s DB Front Rack Hold (30# DBs)
    • 10 Up Downs
    • 20s Dead Hang
  • 9 DB Deficit Push-ups
  • 9 Ring Rows
  • 7 DB Up Downs (30# & 40# DBs)
  • 7 Jumping Negative Pull-ups
  • 5 DB Burpees (30# & 40# DBs)
  • 5 Strict Pull-ups

Conditioning

8 Rounds

  • 250m Row
  • 10 DB Burpees (30# DB & 40# DB)
  • 5 Strict Pull-ups

The Rx was 35#, but we only have one dumbbell that weight. Tried out kettlebells but that was no bueno. Settled on using a 30# and a 40#, then just swapped hands every round. Worked out well actually and as a bonus got in some unilateral movement. I started off in the low 1:50/500m on the rower and then settled in at 1:55-1:57 the rest of the way. Did all singles on the bar so I didn’t have to waste energy on the negative or take long breaks between doubles or triples. Finished in 21:10.
