Passing Train

Not a great night of sleep. Probably why HRV dropped into the warning zone today, unless that run really drained me yesterday, which I doubt since it was so slow. Makes 12 days in a row of 100+ though, so not quite sure why it’s in the orange zone. Out in the garage by 7:30. Warmed up with 600m Ski Erg (2:41).

Coffee Squats

Pause Back Squats (1s in the hole)

  • 10×45#
  • 5×135#
  • 5×185#
  • 5×225#
  • 5×255#
  • 5×275#
  • 5×295#

I put the belt on for 275 and 295. Had to grind out some reps on those last two sets but feeling strong.



  • GHD Sit-ups (to parallel)
  • Ski Erg (cals)

As soon as I dropped back on the first rep I knew I was not touching the ground today. My abs are still pretty fucking sore. Finished in 7:23. Tried to keep a pace of 1,000+ cal/hr on the erg.


5 Sets

  • 12 JM Press (45-55-55-65-65#)
  • 12 Incline DB Bench Press (60°, 40-45-50-50-50#)

Swapped the order today. It made that last set of bench almost hit failure, but the JM presses felt better that way. Maybe I’ll alternate every 2 weeks. Had to get in this work today instead of the normal Sunday morning routine because I’ll be coming back from Cleveland in the morning.
