Walked 18 holes yesterday. Was getting sore, but I’m not sure if it was from the back squats on Saturday or the Sunday workout. Shoulders and lats are tight, my back is weird, and feeling my hamstrings. Went to the 4pm class.
- 200m Run
- 20 Hand Release Push-ups
- 200m Run
- 15 Good Mornings (PVC)
- 200m Run
- 10 Fat Bar Strict Pull-ups
Wasn’t even sure I’d go to class today for deadlifts when I woke up this morning. My back turned out to be fine though. Looked at the chart and I had done 3×325 a few weeks ago, so I worked backwards from the estimated 1RM for that and got to 265 for today’s recommended 75%. Just think… it would be 385 if I went off my all-time max. I can’t even remember the last time I pulled that for a single.
Warmed up my bench press with 10×45#, 5×95, 5×135, and 5×165 in between some of my last sets of deadlifts since everyone else sped through and I used up the full 25 minutes. We had plenty of time.

- 5 Bench Press (185#)
- 10 Strict Pull-ups
Really had no idea what to use for the bench press, but the 165 warm-up felt pretty good, so I added tens on the bar. The last 2 sets of these benches were tough but I did every round unbroken. The pull-ups disappeared quick! I did 4-3-3 for the first 2 rounds, then maybe 4-3-1-1-1, I don’t remember round 4 (4 and singles?), and all singles in round 5. Was breathing hard and soaked with sweat!

Since I was already warm and due to time, I skipped the warm-up, which would have been…
- 10/10 Single Arm RKB Swing
- 10/10 Single Arm Suitcase Deadlift
Then the workout was supposed to be a two arm Farmer Carry using what I had established for a 1RM 100m single arm carry. The heaviest kettlebell we have at the gym is a 40kg though, so I never really got to max out.
- 90m Farmer Carry (32kg + 40kg)
- Nerve Flossing – 10 palms down and palms up
- 45s Rest
Went 45 meters down, put the KBs down and turned around, which ended up swapping arms for the offset bells, then 45 meters back. Wasn’t as hard as I expected it to be.
