5 At A Time

Had day 1 of the Club Championship this morning. Weather wasn’t that hot until the end and we actually got rained on a bit. Need to score a lot better tomorrow to do something in which will most likely be the 3rd flight. Out in the garage at about 5:30pm.

Hang Power Clean + Front Squat


  • 5×45#
  • 3×95
  • 3×135
  • 5×160
  • 5×170
  • 5×185
  • 5×200
  • 5×210

All reps were from the hang above the knee. After 170 I actually had to get out the chalk. It was so humid out after the rain last night and what we got during the day. I was sweating everywhere. In the last two sets I dropped the bar after 3 reps, real quick breath, and picked it back up to finish the final 2. Sets of 5 are fucking nasty!

Clean Deadlifts

  • 2×225#
  • 2×255
  • 2×275
  • 3x5x285
  • AMRAP 285

Used a hook grip through the first set of 5. No chalk on any of the deadlifts though. Then used lifting straps the rest of the way. Stopped after 15 reps in the AMRAP. I was starting to feel it all over in my legs.

Pause Split Jerks

Pause in dip for 2 seconds and pause in split for 2 seconds.

  • 2×45#
  • 2×95
  • 2×135
  • 2×175
  • 2×185
  • 2×195
  • 3x2x205

I turned on the clock and went every 2 minutes. Felt a lot more solid than last week, when I was taking a lot more rest. Getting used to the weightlifter’s volume.


28:00 alternating EMOM

  • 6 Strict Chin-ups
  • 30s HS Hold
  • 6 Strict Ring Dips
  • 8/8 Barbell Side Bends (95#)

Was expecting it to be more brutal due to the heat but it wasn’t bad at all. First time trying side bends with a barbell and I think they are a keeper. They seem to make use of a lot more muscles.

Will make time to get in a 20 min ROMWOD.
