Weird Feelings

In at 3:30.

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

Warm-up: 3 Rounds

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

Test Your Max

  • 1 Set of MAX C2B Pull-ups
  • 4 sets at 60%
  • 2:00 Rests between all sets

Didn’t have it today. Got 18, which is 5 fewer than last week so 60% (rounded up) was sets of 11. I got the first 3 sets unbroken and then went for a max of 13 on the last set.

In the 2nd drop set I started to lose some of my peripheral vision and was seeing sort of 2 squiggly rainbow lines on the right some of my vision. It was weird. Lasted through the accessory work and then my peripheral was still messed up for a little while after that.

Strength Accessory: 3 Sets

  • 10 Leg Lifts (AbMat on box on jerk blocks)
  • 20 GHD Heel Drives

Cut from 5 to 3 sets again since I didn’t want to fatigue my back too much before squats.

Strength – Front Squat

  • 5×45#
  • 5×135
  • 5×205
  • 5×235
  • 5×265
  • 5×275
  • 5×285 (PR)

Wasn’t sure what to expect after the vision weirdness. Pretty solid lifting though and beats the set of 5 I did about a year ago.


Mini “Diane”

  • Deadlift (225#)
  • HSPU

I had looked back earlier when planning my week and saw a time of 5:18 from over 3 years ago for this so I was pretty happy with the 3:58 I did today. Until I got home at least. I had failed to see I later did a 15-12-9 in 4:10 over 2 years ago. Today I went unbroken on all of the deadlifts and 7-5, 5-4, and 4-1-1 on the handstand push-ups.

My neck and head weren’t feeling the greatest after this and then some of my fingers actually started going numb as I recovered. What the fuck is wrong with me today?


  • 2:00 DU

Missed more than I should have, but did a decent set of about 80 unbroken in the middle. Managed 183 reps, which is still ranked high on Beyond The Whiteboard so I shouldn’t complain too much, but I expect better.

Really not sure what was going on with me today. I’ve never had some of those issues in a training session. I did take a bunch of extra carbs in both of my workout drinks, but not sure that would have had anything to do with it. I think it’s a sign to take a full rest day tomorrow instead of active recovery.
