Great Monday

I felt a little twinge in my back a few times as I moved around the house. Otherwise feeling good after yesterday’s workouts.

Warm-up – 3 Sets

  • 10 Air Squats
  • 8 Strict Chin-ups


Work up to a daily max power clean + squat clean.

  • 4 @ 45#
  • 2 @ 95
  • 2 @ 135
  • 185
  • 205
  • 225
  • 245
  • 265
  • 275

Wasn’t sure how my back would hold up, but was able to hit a PR on my power clean and this is only 11# under the most I’ve cleaned!


20:00 EMOM (alt)

  • 5 Strict HSPU
  • 5 Power Cleans (185#)

Programmed as 10-12 strict handstand push-ups! Yeah right. I was able to hold on and do every set of power cleans touch-n-go. I probably could have done 6 HSPU each set, but not much more. Really good EMOM though. Was drenched in sweat at the halfway point.


10:00 EMOM

  • 3 MU

Figured this would be rough after all of the bar muscle-ups in 17.2 yesterday. Working on jumping into the first rep like I was able to get going on the bar. Usually I grab the rings from right underneath and then lift my legs up. The jump is must faster and more efficient. I was also working a little bit on using the back swing of my legs to drive me up through the dip motion. Made it through every set unbroken but didn’t have much left.

That was a lot of muscle-ups over 4 days! My hands need a break. Leaving for Austin, TX in the morning.
