Ups and Downs

Was in Cleveland last night for a wedding. We got up early and made it back to my place around noon. Had pushed back Super Sunday to 1pm to give me enough time to make it home.


  • Crossover Symmetry Activation
  • 1,000m Row
  • Bottom Squat Hold

Strength + Explosive

  • 2 Front Squats + 5 Back Squats
  • Rest 30s
  • 1 Broad Jump
  • Rest ~2:00

Went 45-135-185-225-255-280-300# for a 5# PR. Felt really good squatting. Didn’t pull out the tape measure for the jumps so no idea how far they were.



  • Thrusters (95#)
  • Pull-ups

I pretty much called it in on this one during the first set of pull-ups when I broke it up to 11-10. Barely any sleep, 4 hours in the car, and just wasn’t feeling great this morning. I really fell apart going 5-5-5 on the 15 thrusters with way too much rest between picking the bar back up. Then 9-6 pull-ups and unbroken 9s to finish in 4:44. Not even close to my 3:30 best. Rested while second group went.

At an easy pace…

  • 1 Mile Run
  • 100 Walking Lunges
  • 1 Mile Run

It took 25:10 with some walking around in the gym during the transitions in and out of lunging. First mile was about 8:55 and second one was about 9:35 (I had RunKeeper going the whole time). Nobody else ran the second mile with me, but I made myself do it since I didn’t push on Fran. I need the extra running anyway.
