Veterans Day “DT”

Was feeling weak and tired yesterday after some yard work. Hopefully it’s not from the diet being a lot fewer calories than eating fast food. Up for the 9am class.


  • 500m Row (2:02)
  • Bottom Squat Hold


Back Squats

  • 10×45#
  • 5×135#
  • 5×205#
  • 5×235#
  • 5×255#
  • 5×265#
  • 5×280#
  • 5×295#

Felt good. Those back tweaks are really making me focus on technique through all of my heavy reps.

I did a quick complex of 6 deadlifts, 4 hang power cleans, and 2 push jerks with 135# to get a feel for the workout.


5 Rounds

  • 12 Deadlifts (155#)
  • 9 Hang Power Cleans (155#)
  • 6 Push Jerks (155#)

I was shooting for under 10 minutes and was on pace until I died in the last round. I did 11 deadlifts to start every round. Got 1 deadlift + 8 power cleans in the first two rounds, but fell apart with the cleans after that. Lost a good 5 seconds or more too when I miscounted for a second at the end and dropped the bar with 1 rep to go. Dumb! Finished in 10:35, which is good for a 1:13 PR, so I’ll take it.
