Team Practice

In to the 10am class. Last time at the gym for over a week since I’m heading to Barcelona tomorrow. 🙂

Back Squats

It was choose your own strength day, but is there really a choice? You fucking squat! Or at least I do.


  • 5×45#
  • 5×135#
  • 5×225#
  • 3×255#
  • 2×285#
  • 1×315#
  • 1×335#
  • 1×345#
  • 1×355# (PR)
  • 1×360# (PR)

That’s a 10# PR. I’ll take it.

Then we practiced some workouts that are part of an upcoming team competition where team scores count towards a gym score to determine top gym in the area. We’ve won the last 3. 🙂

12:00 AMRAP (Partners)

  • 240m Run
  • 21 American KBS (53# KB) while other partner hangs from bar
  • 12 Pull-ups while other partner holds the KB

I paired up with Luke. We finished 4 rounds plus a run and 11 KBS I think. I thought that hanging from the bar would be taxing for the pull-ups so we broke the KBS down to 12-9 for a quick drop from the bar each round. Could have gone unbroken because the grip didn’t really become an issue. Did pull-ups unbroken. Holding the KB was no big deal.

Tabata Thruster Ladder

  • 20s AMRAP Thrusters
  • 10s move to next bar and rest

The weights were 75#, 95#, 105#, 115#, 135#, 155#, 165#, and 185#. I went conservative and did just 3 reps at each station, but made it the whole way. I had to rest a second or two in the rack position between each rep at 185# but the rest were all one rep right into the next. Could push it a little more at the beginning weights.

Got home and did Crossover Symmetry Recovery.
