Shoulder Carnage

Feeling good again today, so glad the head cold moved through quickly. In around 5:30 to get half of the Team Series workouts done.


  • 3×8 Reverse Hypers (160#)
  • Crossover Symmetry Activation
  • Muscle Snatches

Team Series #5

  • Karen: 150 Wall Balls
  • Grace: 30 C&J
  • Diane: 21-15-9 Deadlifts & HSPU
  • Randy: 75 Snatches (75#)

Each person on the team does one benchmark. I got to do my first Randy. Went 15-10-10-7-8-8-5-6-6. After 25 my shoulders felt like they were going to explode. Took me 5:01 in the splits (and 4:57 by video) but sure didn’t feel like that long. Our total time was 20:49 with splits of 5:47, 8:41, and 15:48.

Team Series #8

  • 200 toes-to-bars, while 2 teammates hold loaded barbells overhead
  • 200 shoulder-to-overheads (135/95 lb.), while 2 teammates hang from the pull-up bar

Horrible! For T2B I think I did 4 sets of 10 and then maybe 7 and 7, maybe? Not sure. We finished those at 7:41 and literally took about a minute to peel off wraps and shit before we started on the S2OH reps. We paired up doing 5 and 5 the whole way and then switched with the hangers. Just kept moving. Hanging wasn’t a big deal, especially using a mixed grip. We finished at 17:23.

Shoulders are absolutely destroyed! Events 6 & 7 tomorrow.
