Return to Super Sunday

My lats are sore from the pull-ups yesterday. Chest is a little sore too. Out in the garage early again. Warmed up with 5:00 Air Dyne (2.38km).

Coffee Squats

2 Front + 5 Back

  • 45#
  • 95#
  • 135#
  • 155#
  • 175#
  • 195#
  • 215#
  • 235#

Far cry from the most I’ve done for this squat complex, but it’s the most weight I’ve had on the bar in over 2 months. Coming back slow and steady.

After missing the last couple of Sundays, I was glad to be back.


  • 1,000m Row (4:20)
  • CS Activation
  • Bottom Squat Hold
  • Shoulder mobility with band


3 Rounds

  • 400m Run
  • 21 American KBS (53#)
  • 12 Pull-ups

pumpsFirst run was about 1:35 so I knew I was on a solid pace. Was able to do each set of kettlebell swings and pull-ups unbroken though I had to dig deep to stay on the bar for the last 4. Got slower on the runs, but held on ok. Finished in 8:53, which is a 37 second PR and probably the most legit 400m runs I’d done with Helen as far as distance. Must have been the Pumps, which I wore for the first time. Have had running in a workout the last 3 days and it has felt decent, which is a nice surprise. Walked 200m to cool down.

4x NFT

  • 50m Sled Pull between legs (145-190-220-235#)
  • 5 Strict Deficit HSPU (2″)

The sled pull was done walking forward bent over with the straps coming through your legs.

5 Rounds

  • 10 V-ups
  • 20 Push-ups
  • 30 Plyo Lunges

I split up the push-ups into 10-10 every round and did the v-ups and lunges unbroken. Every round of lunges was a deep burn, but the last two rounds were a fight to keep going. Finished in 8:42. Walked another 200m to try to flush out the legs some. My ass is going to be sore tomorrow!

Did Crossover Symmetry Iron Scap before leaving and will do some stretching tonight. Need to get outside and do some raking if the rain holds off.
