Closing in on 300

That damn “Annie” DOMS is killing my abs. I’ve had twitches and cramps all day. Walked 18 holes yesterday. It was 93% humidity in the middle of the round when I checked. Took a lot out of me for the rest of the day.

Today Bryan came over to workout. I warmed up with 500m on the Ski Erg.

Bench Press

  • 10×45#
  • 10×95
  • 5×135
  • 3×165
  • 3×195
  • 2×215
  • 1×235
  • 1×255
  • 1×270
  • 1×280 (PR)

Was supposed to work up to an opening attempt as if I were doing a push-only powerlifting meet. Since I hit 275# (my previous 1RM) for a double on Sunday, I wanted to hit 280 today and have a good idea of what I might be capable of next week when going for a max. I don’t if I have much more than that I have in me!


  • 2×10 DB Side Raises (25#)
  • 2×10 DB Bent-over Side Raises (30#)
  • 3×10/10 Bottoms-up KB Presses (30#)

There were pull-ups and rack chins programmed, but they are in tomorrow’s workout too (I actually swapped the order of the days), so no need to hit them 2 days in a row. I did add the KB presses though.


3 Rounds

  • 400m Run
  • 10 Hang Power Snatch (115#)

Meh. I did the snatches in 2×5 each set. I don’t feel comfortable cycling hang snatches from a high position with 115# so it took me a lot longer. Bryan smoked me by almost 90 seconds. I finished at 7:55.

2:00 Challenge

  • Ski Erg Calories

Since I was down 0-1 in the series I had to pick something I was 99% sure I’d win. Got 49 calories to Bryan’s 43 and tied up the series.
