C2B and American KBS Back in Action

Surprisingly I’m not all that sore from the leg killer workout yesterday. I can feel some in my upper glutes, but my scaps are more sore than anything.


  • CS Activation (at home)
  • Shoulder Stretching
  • Arm Circles


Bench Press

  • 10×45#
  • 3×95#
  • 3×95# wide grip
  • 3×95# close grip
  • Speed Bench w/30-35s rest
    • 3x3x135# wide grip
    • 2x3x135#
    • 3x3x135# close grip
  • 8×185# close grip

First time putting any significant weight on the bar for that set of 185# and it felt pretty good. No struggle with the weight.


  • 20 C2B Pull-ups
  • 30 American KBS (53# KB)
  • 40 SDHP (53# KB)
  • 50 DB Push Presses (35# DBs)
  • 20 C2D Push-ups
  • 30 American KBS
  • 500m Run
  • 20 Burpees
  • 30 V-ups
  • 15 Ring Dips
  • 50 DU
  • 20 C2B Pull-ups

First time doing C2B and American KBS. My kip kept turning into a swing after about 4 reps in that first set of 20 though. Scaled down the push presses from the Rx 45# since I’m still trying to take it a little easy, especially with adding back in 2 movements in one day. Got my 50 DU unbroken, which is sweet at that point in a workout. Finished in 21:34.

Went back at 8pm for barbell club. Did CS Activation again before leaving home.

45# Snatch Position Work

  • Snatch Deadlifts
  • Muscle Snatches
  • Snatch Presses

5:00 EMOM

  • 135# Snatch w/ 3s pause in the hole
  • 2 OHS

Was supposed to go 10:00 but my wrists couldn’t take it. Not used to holding weight overhead yet.

Power Snatches

  • 2×145#
  • F-1×155#
  • 1×165#
  • 1×175#
  • 3x1x155#
  • 1-F-1-1×165#

Feet were getting too wide, which really sucks for squatting with it. After 175# figured it was more worthwhile to drop down and work on some fixes. Also allowed me to work on keeping my arms relaxed and try not to bend my elbows early. When I don’t pull early with my arms, the bar just flies up. I nearly lost a few reps behind me.

Grabbed the empty bar and did 5 OHS with a jerk grip. Lost some mobility with the time away from OH.
