Get ScapJacked!

Walked 18 holes of golf yesterday and feeling good. First time since coming back from Spain that my legs aren’t sore. Headed out to the garage before the 9am Survival Fitness class to get in the Smolov Shoulder Press along with an XWOD.


  • 27″ Seated Box Jump
  • 5×45# Shoulder Press
  • 33″ Seated Box Jump
  • 5×75# Shoulder Press

  • 6x6x115# Shoulder Press
  • 2-1-2-1-2-1 Seated Box Jump

I did 2×39″ and 1×41.5″ for the jumps. Tried to get 45″ in warm-up but I couldn’t make myself get up there being alone at home in the garage and so early in the morning. Good challenge. This was the first day of week 2 for my shoulder press Smolov Jr. cycle.

Got to SF and warmed up with leg swings, bottom squat holds, and some other stretching.

Really weird with such a low box and having to touch the knee to the ground. I’m used to doing these on a bench.


  • 100 DU
  • 80 Air Squats
  • 30s Dead Hang + 12 Pull-ups
  • 40 Box Jumps (24″)
  • 30s Dead Hang + 12 Pull-ups
  • 20 Burpees
  • 30s Dead Hang + 12 Pull-ups

I got the 100 double unders unbroken! Wasn’t even a struggle and my shoulders felt fine the whole way. I guess that month of dubs really paid off, plus all of the Crossover Symmetry work I’ve been doing. My air squats wore slow and controlled, but I never stopped. Didn’t rebound on my box jumps, so all step downs, but again, no stopping. Burpees were pretty slow. I did the first two rounds of pull-ups unbroken without dropping, then dropped after 5 in the last round so I wouldn’t rip. Took a short break and got back up to finish out the last 7. Still doing all kipping pull-ups to build up muscle more than butterfly. Finished in 10:39.

Got home and did Crossover Symmetry Iron Scap. Time to step it up! Rest day tomorrow to golf 27 holes and then we have a team competition Saturday against all of the gyms in the area.
