Spending Some Time on Cleans

Slept in until 10am this morning. I don’t think I’ve done that all year. Guess my body needed the rest. Did training in the garage today by myself starting around 4pm.

Warm-up

3:00 Air Dyne

OLY

Time to finally start working on the cleans again. I’ve neglected them for too long.

  • 10:00 65# Clean Position Work
  • 2:00 E30S: 2 x 95#
  • 2:00 E20S: 1 x 135#
  • EMOM: Started with 155# and did one rep every minute, increasing by 10# each time. Stopped at 235#.

Had to really save my elbows with 235# and sat in the hole for a few seconds before standing up. Figured that was a good place to end it.

Strength

Front Squats

1 Set E3M

  • 5 x 135#
  • 5 x 185#
  • 3 x 225#
  • 3 x 235#
  • 3 x 245#
  • 3 x 255#
  • 3 x 265#
  • 3 x 225#
  • 3 x 235#
  • 3 x 245#

I felt parts of my legs I’ve never felt before in the squats. Maybe it was all of the cleans I’d already done. A lot of volume! My legs are toast.

Incline Bench Press

  • 10 x 95#
  • 10 x 105#
  • 10 x 115#
  • 6 x 125#
  • 6 x 135#
  • 3 x 145# (F on 4th)

Since I’m such a pussy with my upper body, I’m able to incline bench by myself because I can easily stand up with the weight in the rack position, like I had to do after a failed attempt at a 4th rep with 145#.

WOD

4 Rounds

  • 10 GHD Sit-ups
  • 20 Russian KBS (70# KB)
  • 50 DU

Finished in 9:03 and then an easy 5:00 cool down on the Air Dyne.
