One More

Surprisingly I felt fine after the 125 push press reps from the other night. Don’t sense any improvement in my left shoulder. Planned on going to 9am but woke up in the night with a headache, so I slept in. Got to the gym at 3:30 to get in the pull-up work before class.

Skill WOD “Be the Master of your Volume” Week 2 Day 3

Warm-up: 3 Rounds

  • 10 Pass-thrus (over & under grips)
  • 10 Straddle V-ups
  • 10 Back Extensions
  • 5/5 Bar Taps (tight/dynamic)

Substituted the bar taps in for wall walks and skin the cat due to my shoulder which doesn’t feel good with either of those.

Test Your Max

  • Max C2B Pull-ups
  • 2:00 Rest
  • 4 Sets
    • 60% of Max set
    • 2:00 Rest

I got 23 today, which is another PR by a rep! I actually had counted 24 when I did the set, but had video and it was only 23. Shit. So my drop sets were 14. I did the first set unbroken and then 10-1-1-1-1 for the other 3 sets. Didn’t realize it until after class, but I have a decent blister on my thumb and one on a palm.

Strength Accessory: 3 Sets

  • 10 Strict T2B
  • 20 GHD Heel Drives

Cut back to 3 so I’d have a little rest time before class and because I didn’t want to fatigue my back too much going into squats. It was a great warm-up actually.

Strength – Front Squat

  • 6×45#
  • 6×155
  • 3×205
  • 3×235
  • 3×255
  • 3×275
  • 3×295
  • 3×305

No issues; felt good.



  • Box Jump (24″)
  • Power Clean (115#)
  • S2OH (115#)

I switched to step-ups with the round of 8 and my back still got a little cramped up by the end. For every set through 5 I dropped the bar with 1 clean to go so I could finish it off going into the overheads which were all unbroken. At the round of 4 and below I didn’t put the bar down. Should have done that starting at 5 though. Did mostly push jerks but some push presses mixed in. Finished in 9:32.


Class was doing Tabata planks, so I usually go for a max hold. Didn’t have it today though due to my back being lit up. Stopped at 2:30 (hands).
