It was rough rolling over in bed last night, but not close to the worst it’s I’ve had it. Could barely walk when I got out of bed. Iced my back and used the TENS unit this morning and it felt good enough to go to the 10am class.

I was squatting off the jerk blocks because it was a packed house and all 6 racks were being used. Heading in to the gym I figured I’d be happy to git a couple sets at 225#. Other than picking the bar up off the blocks, I didn’t feel anything from my back because I really made sure to keep it tight. Excited I was able to get up to 265# when 2 hours earlier I wasn’t sure I’d even be able to go in.


25:00 Partner AMRAP

  • 50 Push Press (75#)
  • 50 Air Squats

Worked with Weston. We each did a set of 15 and then a set of 10 with every movement. When we were in to the second round I wasn’t even breathing hard yet and said it was much easier than I expected. We then got faster each round. I had jokingly said 5 rounds before we started and we almost got there! Only 41 reps shy of that 5th round for 959 total reps. If we had done the lunges and air squats in a set of 25 each we would have been able to make it. Was a fun workout to cycle the lighter weights.
