Still Got ‘Em

When I workout late, I’m hyped up and can’t get to bed, so I was up until like 1:30 last night. Made it to the gym at 10am though. Hybrid had a bunch of heavy snatches programmed today because they didn’t adjust after 17.3 was announced and some long AMRAPs, but we didn’t feel like doing any of that stuff.

12:00 EMOM

  • 10 Pistols
  • 7 Strict HSPU

Have had doubts about pistols lately because my left quad has been bothering me a bit during squats. Once I got in a few reps they were feeling great though. Went for an increase on the handstand push-ups from what I’ve been doing and made every set. Was fun doing these two movements back-to-back.

Back Squat

  • 10×45#
  • 5×155
  • 5×205
  • 5×245
  • 3x5x275

Felt heavy and I could feel my low back a little bit so didn’t push the weight.

Bench Press (pause)

  • 10×45#
  • 5×95
  • 5×135
  • 5×165
  • 5×185
  • 5×205
  • 5×225
  • 5×230

I couple of weeks ago I did 225 for a triple with the pauses so this was a big jump. My 5RM without pauses is 240, so wondering where my max is these days.


  • 500m Row

It’s been too long since I did this for time. Had it going good with theĀ average pace down to 1:22/500m at one point, but diedĀ in the last 150 meters. Finished with 1:24.1, which is only 0.6 seconds off my best.
