In for the 9am because I have a massage at noon and want to rest after that. Back is tight from the last couple of days.


3 Rounds

  • 20 PVC Pass-thrus
  • 15 Jump Squats
  • 10 Zombie Kicks
  • 5 Burpees


5×3 Shoulder Press

  • 10 @ 45#
  • 3 @ 95#
  • 3 @ 115#
  • 3 @ 125#
  • 3 @ 135#
  • 3 @ 145#

I did 3 reps at 145# a couple of months ago, but I’ll take it after doing HSPU last night. Some days you have to just take what you can get because it’s better than going for 150# and not getting any reps. It took me a long time to realize this.


3 Sets

  • MAX Ring Dips
  • 90s Rest

These felt good today. The weighted dips Kevin and I have been doing really helped out I think. I did 16, 12, and 10 in my sets. All reps were strict with no kipping.



  • Modified DB Curtis P’s (hang clean, lunge, lunge, push press)
  • Manmakers (DB push-up, row, row)

It was a good change of pace to do a WOD dominated by DBs. The push presses were easily the worst part of this for me. I had to take my breaks mostly because I couldn’t press out any more reps. Finished in 19:44, using 40# DBs.

Decided to try my first 2k row at night. Didn’t quite know what to expect and started too fast. It pretty much sucked after the first 500m. Final time was 7:38 so I’ll have something to shoot for next time.
