Better Back

Went out and walked a quick 9 holes late last night in the heat and then got a decent sleep again. Back was stiff and had a few pain shots getting up and just after waking up. Feels pretty good once I get moving though. In for Super Sunday after missing last week.


12:00 EMOM (alternating)

  • 8 Step-ups (2×35# KBs, 20″)
  • 10 Reverse Hypers (210#)


  • 50 C&J (135#)
  • * 1:00 work/rest until finished

I did the first 10 touch-n-go and then got 5 more in that first round. Did 5 touch-n-go in the second minute and then 7 more. Dropped all the rest, going 12 and 11 in the last two, to finish at 6:49, including the 3×1:00 rest. I did wear the belt to help with my back and it felt good.

I was trying to think of what would be a good time for this and kept coming back to 5 rounds. I thought the pace would drop off a lot more after the first round, so I was pretty happy to get done in 4 rounds with time to spare.


  • HR Push-ups
  • Goblet Squats (53/35#)

I did sets of 6×5 push-ups, 20-10 squats, 5×4 push-ups, 12-8 squats, 6-4 push-ups, and 10 squats to finish at 5:47.


10 Rounds

  • 20s L-sit
  • 25s Rest

We did 8 rounds a couple of weeks ago, but it was the first thing of the day. Tough going today. I did the first 5 on rings, then 2 hanging from the bar, and finished with a fight for the last 3 on the rings.
