Back in the 400s

Tired this morning. Almost backed out of the morning session I had planned, but got in the garage and did the work.

Warmed up with 5:00 on the Air Dyde (AD2) for 2.58km.

4 Rounds

  • 500m Ski Erg
  • 1:00 Rest
  • 300m Ski Erg
  • 3:00 Rest

Got this one from Chris Hishaw of Vivendi Lab (formerly NorCal CrossFit Lab). It was a row workout, but the distances and pace chart work just as well on the ski erg. My pace targets were 2:02.4 for 500m and 1:54 for 300m based off an estimated 2k PR since my only attempt is too slow. Hit every target and increased my pace every round. The 500s were 2:02.4, 2:02.1, 2:02, and 2:01.7. The 300s were 1:08.3 (1:53.8/500), 1:08 (1:53.3/500), 1:08 (1:53.3/500), and 1:07.6 (1:52.6/500).

3 Rounds

  • 15 GHD Sit-ups
  • 15 Hip Extensions

Did it in 4:17. Planned on 5 rounds, but the CFi workout has deadlifts and T2B today, so I don’t want to destroy my core. To be honest, back extensions with sore quads are pretty brutal!

Went to the 5:30 class.


  • 1,000m Row (3:58.1)
  • 2×10 Reverse Hyper (210#)
  • Bottom Squat Hold



  • 5×155#
  • 5×245#
  • 4×315#
  • 2×365#
  • 2×385#
  • 2×405#
  • 2×425#
  • 2×445#

Yeah! Haven’t pulled 400+ off the ground in months. Felt easy too. Didn’t want to push it too far though. I had a goal of 425-435 when I walked in.



10:00 AMRAP

  • 8 T2B
  • 8 Deadlifts (185#)
  • 16 American KBS (53#)

Didn’t have a go button today. I could feel my body wore out early in the day. Got 5 rounds plus 8 toes to bar and 8 deadlifts. Everything unbroken except I went 4-4 on my last set of T2B.


5 Sets

  • 12 Floor Wipers (95#)

Hadn’t done these in well over a year I think, but they were really easy. Tried to go really slow and controlled on the last set.

Figured I’d decompress the back after those deadlifts, so jumped on the RH again for 3x10x210#.
