Closing in on a Power 200

My HRV recovered back up to 109 this morning and my resting heart rate was down 10 beats to 43. When the HRV was in the orange on Thursday morning, I should have probably held back a little in the workout that day. Active recovery to the rescue! I was up earlier than normal so chilled with my coffee before hitting the garage. Warmed up with 3 minutes on the Ski Erg (616 meters).

Coffee Squats

Pause Back Squats (5s in the hole)

  • 10×45#
  • 5×135#
  • 5×155#
  • 3×175#
  • 3×195#
  • 3×215#
  • 3×235#
  • 3×255#

I only planned on hitting 235#, but it was feeling so good I had to go another set. I first put 245# on the bar, but bumped changed my mind before going and was glad I did. Felt good!

Then to CFi for the 10am class.


  • Crossover Symmetry Activation
  • Bottom Squat Hold
  • PVC Pass-thrus
  • 5 Hang Muscle Snatch (45#)
  • 5 Snatch Press (45#)

Power Snatch

  • 3×95#
  • 3×115#
  • 3×135#
  • 2×155#
  • 1×165#
  • 1×175#
  • 1×185#
  • 1×195# (PR)

Knew I wanted to go for that PR today when I saw snatch work on the board. Felt solid.


14 Rounds (Partner)

  • 12 Burpees
  • 12 Air Squats
  • 12 Pull-ups

Killed it with Bryan by going 6-6-12-6-6 every round. We picked up the pace in the last 2 rounds to finish at 13:51. Great workout and was nice to be able to knock out quick air squats.


2x with a partner (20#)

  • 10 Chest MB Passes
  • 10 OH MB Passes
  • 10/10 Side MB Passes
  • 10 Up MB Passes

Before heading home I did Crossover Symmetry Iron Scap for those shoulders.
