Kiss My Ass Barbara


Warmed up with some stretching, 10×45# shoulder press, 5×95# thruster, and 3×135# clean thruster.

E3M 15:00

  • 1.1.1 Clean Thruster
  • 3 Evil Wheels

* Take 5-10s between clean thruster reps.

Worked out to about 2 minutes of rest between rounds, which is what I was going for with the design. I used 155, 175, 195, 205, and 225#. That was fun. My max clean thruster was 240# the last time I tried, so 225# for 3 reps was tough.

5 rounds

  • 20 Pull-ups
  • 30 Push-ups
  • 40 Sit-ups
  • 50 Air Squats
  • 3:00 Rest

Went out hot, which turned out to be really dumb. My rounds were 3:37, 4:12, 4:29, 4:59, and 5:07 for a total time of 22:24. That’s 9 seconds slower than the only other time I’ve done this benchmark, though I was 22 pounds lighter back then. I went 20, 20, 20, 14-6, and 12-4-4 on my pull-ups and I think I did 3 sets of 10 for the first 2 rounds of push-ups. If I had broken up the pull-ups and push-ups more in those first two rounds I think I would have been able to keep a more consistent pace. Last time I did “Barbara” my rounds were almost all exactly the same time (4:23, 4:26, 4:26, 4:33, and 4:27). My head was a little too big today.

Wore gymnastics grips but they don’t protect the thumb. Glad it’s not very deep. Better to have it there than somewhere on my palm.
