Showing Up Can Be an Accomplishment

Woke up late. Almost 8am by the time I rolled out of bed. Wasn’t feeling motivated to make it to the gym for 9am, but did because I have to pick up Mom from the airport tonight.


  • 500m Row
  • Bottom Squat Hold


Stiff-Legged Deadlifts

  • 5×45#
  • 5×135#
  • 5×185#
  • 5×215#
  • 5×245#
  • 5×265#
  • 5×285#

Back squats were on the menu, but still no squatting for me. Sucks! Allows me to focus on a weak part of the legs though, so that’s a positive.


5 Rounds

  • 5 HSPU
  • 7 Power Cleans (135#)
  • 9 Box Jumps (24″)

Didn’t have the energy or motivation to go very hard so I set a goal of doing the cleans unbroken every round. Success! Finished in 7:47.


4 Sets

  • 5 Evil Wheels
  • 8/8 Kroc Rows (62#)

Tried not to get the body into the rows and focus on making the correct muscles do all of the work.
