Back to Work in 2016

Back to work today after 2+ weeks off for the holidays! Went to the 4:30 class.


  • 2×8 Reverse Hyper (210#)
  • Bottom Squat Hold
  • 3 Rounds
    • 30 Jumping Jacks
    • 4 Inch Worm Push-ups
    • 15 Ball Slams (30#)

Was warm after that!

Strength – Back Squat

  • 6×45#
  • 6×155
  • 3×205
  • 3×255
  • 3×285
  • 3×305
  • 3×325
  • 3×345

Didn’t feel as solid in my leg drive as the 350 triple last week. Back was fine though. Would have liked to try for 355 coming into today but I don’t think I would have gotten it and didn’t have time anyway.


4 Rounds

  • 300m Row
  • 20 Russian Kettlebell Swings (53#)
  • 20 Wall Balls (20#, 10′)
  • 20 Sit-ups
  • 2:00 Rest

I didn’t notice that he increased the rest from 1:00 due to the size of class and the number of rowers available, so I thought I was getting a bunch of extra rest. Turned out to be pretty close to 2:00 each round. My rounds were 3:43, 3:56, 3:59, and 3:40 which included a nice walk across the gym after getting off the rower. Rests were 2:03, 1:50, and 2:26. I guess that extra rest helped my last round because it was my fastest even though it was my slowest row. I did transition right into each movement though instead of taking a couple extra breaths so that helped.

Stuck around and did a partner workout with Bryan, Michelle, and Weston. We did it I-go-U-go with each movement for quick work and short rest.

  • 60-40-20 Double Unders
  • 15-12-9 Toes through Rings
  • 15-12-9 Overhead Squats (75#)

I missed a lot on dubs. Too heavy to get myself off the ground? 🙂 The other movements were unbroken. We decided to go light on the OHS for a change and so we could speed through them. Took Bryan and I 7:17 and they were only 10 seconds behind us.
