Did a 20 min ROMWOD this morning before walking 18 holes of golf. Headed out to the garage after 6pm for the 2nd day of the first week of Catalyst OTM.

Split Jerk

  • 5×45#
  • 3×95
  • 3×135
  • 2×165
  • 2×185
  • EMOM
    • 5x1x205
    • 5x1x220
    • 5x1x235

Started feeling heavy in the last 3 reps. After the set with 135# I went to get the next set of plates to add to the bar and all of a sudden… crash, bounce, boom, bounce, bounce! Scared the shit out of me, I look back, and one side of the bar had fallen off the jerk blocks. Learned to roll it to the back of the blocks after each set due to the slant of the garage floor.


Push Press

  • 5x5x175#

Nice being able to go right into it without needing warm-ups after the jerks. Had the belt out, but didn’t use it at all today.

Back Squat Jump

  • 3x3x95#

Seems like pretty low volume, but no complaints from me. Fun exercise.


5 Sets

  • 20s L-sit (parallettes with knees bent)
  • 1:00 Rest

I’m so bad at these.

5 Sets

  • 10 K2E with twist (alternating sides)

Was supposed to do 4×12, but felt my grip slipping so stopped at 10, kept there for each set, and decided to add another set to make up the volume. I wore my Bear Komplex grips after the first set. They still need a fair bit of break-in.
