Wall, Meet Face

Had my monthly Chiro appointment and then went to the gym. Warmed up with Crossover Symmetry Activation.


Snatch Balance + OHS

  • 2x2x45#
  • 2×75
  • 2×95
  • 115
  • 135
  • 155
  • 175
  • 185
  • 195

Figured maybe these will help me get the bar back into the slot. I suck at them though and get scared when they get heavy. 185 went ok, but 195 was pretty much a push press, stop, and then squat it. Maybe I should just get to 175-185 and stay there until they get more and more comfortable.


  • 500m Row

Been over 6 months since I did one for time and my rowing and leg strength have improved a lot since then. Was holding a 1:20/500m pace for 250+ meters, then ran straight into a wall with under 150 meters left. The hot start allowed me to hold on for a 1.3 second PR with a time of 1:23.5.


Rested 10-15 minutes.


10 Rounds

  • 2 Squat Cleans (185#)
  • 6 GHD Sit-ups

Alex started out with me and we just swapped movements, which meant a few seconds of rest waiting for the GHD. His back was bothering him so he stopped in the 3rd round and I was able to move between the movements without resting. Did all of the cleans touch-n-go. Didn’t run a clock so no idea how long it took.
