“Cindy” Cycles

Walked 18 holes yesterday and did a long ROMWOD. I think I was feeling those Bulgarian Split Squats in my legs and hips.

Out in the garage today before lunch to get in some work I missed yesterday at the gym.

Warm-up

  • Crossover Symmetry Activation
  • 3 Sets
    • 1:00 Air Dyne
    • 10 OHS (45#, close grip)

Amazing how much easier those close grip overhead squats get after the initial set. My shoulders really open up.

Conditioning

6 Cycles

  • 3:00 AMRAP – “Cindy”
    • 5 Pull-ups
    • 10 Push-ups
    • 15 Air Squats
  • 1:30 Rest

6-cindy-3min-cyclesEach cycle starts fresh with the pull-ups.

Still no butterfly pull-ups for me so all regular kips. All go in the first 3 minutes with quick squat cycling. Squats slowed a bit in cycle 2, and then push-ups also started to slow mid 3rd cycle. Scores were 4+5, 4+1, 3+26, 3+17, 3+15, and 3+15. Comes to a total of 126 pull-ups, 240 push-ups, and 313 squats. #volume

I got a little blood blister on my left hand near the crease of the pinky and it popped. Didn’t even noticed until a rest period when I felt blood dripping down my fingers. Was no issue continuing since it wasn’t a rip and wasn’t going to get any worse; just meant I kept leaving blood on the bar. Whoops!

Strength

E2M – 6 Sets

  • 11 RDL (185#, standing on 55# competition plates)

My back was feeling pretty tight after these so decided to skip the GHD work I had planned. I’ll get in some midline tomorrow. That was enough reps for one day anyway!

ROMWOD tonight.
