You Got It, Chief

Still feeling some soreness from the pull-ups, but shoulders seem fine after all that pressing volume last night. Maybe the DOMS hasn’t kicked in yet. I hit the quad with the TENS unit before going to the 9am class. It was a packed house this morning.


  • Crossover Symmetry Activation
  • Bottom Squat Hold
  • Jumping Jacks
  • 10 Air Squats
  • 10 Lunges
  • 10 Air Squats


Back Squats

  • 10×45#
  • 6×135#
  • 6×165#
  • 6×195#
  • 6×215#
  • 6×235#
  • 6×255#

Got to relax at home this morning since it’s squat day in class. Used a belt for the last set. Felt solid.


“The Chief”
5 Cycles

  • 3:00 AMRAP
    • 3 Power Cleans (135#)
    • 6 Push-ups
    • 9 Air Squats
  • 1:00 Rest

* Restart the AMRAP for each cycle

I did 5+1, 4+16, 4+16, 4+9, and 4+9 (23+15 total). Did the majority of the cleans going straight back to the floor instead of coming back to the thighs. My air squats are soooo slow. Need to bump up the volume on them so I can handle quicker reps and be ready to crush “Murph” this year.

The only other time I’ve done this was in November of 2012 and I’m pretty sure we didn’t restart every cycle. I managed 21+12 total then with 115#.


4:00 Plank (hands)

Class was doing Tabata, so I went for a hold the entire time. Had big puddles of sweat under my hands when it was over. Didn’t think I’d make it through today, especially at the halfway point.


4 Sets

  • 15 Reverse Hyper (210-260-300-320#)
  • 10 Weighted GHD Sit-ups (20-20-25-25#)

Got this done after class and took my time. Did Crossover Symmetry Iron Scap before heading home.

I'm searching for the perfect golf swing and my first hole-in-one. I'm addicted to CrossFit. I work for Automattic.
