From Your Knees

Felt a little tight when I woke up this morning. Went to the 9am class and I’m off work for the day to attend a wedding near Detroit.


  • Crossover Symmetry Activation
  • 2 Sets
    • 5s of StrongFit Tricep & Bicep Openers (10#)
    • 15 Reverse Hypers (210#)
  • 3 Sets
    • Banded shoulder stretch
    • 15s OHS Hold (45#)
    • 5 Burpees
  • 2 Kneeling Jumps (4″)
  • 6 RDLs (45#)
  • 2 Kneeling Jumps (8″)
  • 6 RDLs (155#)

Went closer with my grip on each OHS hold.



  • 6-6-6-6-6-6 RDL (225#)
  • 2-1-2-1-2-1 Kneeling Box Jump (2 x 12″ & 1 x 13.75″)

Been far too long since we did some of this stuff. Was nervous with the jumps but made them all. Double overhand grip is a lot tougher with that extra 40# on the bar. Tried one set with a hook grip, which sucked.


E5M – 5 Rounds

  • 200m Run
  • 10 OHS (95#)
  • 20 GHD Sit-ups

Fast runs since there was plenty of time to recover. Was taking about 45 seconds each time to get into the gym and run across to where my bar was. Snatched into the first rep each round. First few rounds were done in about 2:15, but was closer to 2:40 in the final round because the GHDs got slow. I came up with this last night and it worked pretty well. Nice to do some faster runs.


3 Sets

  • 12/12 Kroc Rows (53#)

Not enough time in class, but Ashley was staying after to do these, so I did too. Otherwise I probably would have skipped out on them even though I really need them.
