Thought about doing gyms programming before I hit the road on Friday, but rested instead. Got to it today in the garage after getting home.
Went 3:00 Ski Erg for about 680 meters.
I put on the belt for 235 and above. Was close to failure on those last two sets. I completely spaced out and forgot to do 12×195 (75% of heaviest) at the end. Saw it in the list after I had already put the jerk blocks away and unloaded the bar. Probably enough struggle for my back today.
- 8 C&J (135#)
- 12 Pull-ups
I warmed up my clean and jerks with 5×45, 3×95, and 2×115. Did a few pull-ups too.
This was programmed as 6 muscle-ups, which I haven’t been able to add back to my repertoire yet. I don’t have a place to do them at home anyway. I can’t do chest-to-bar pull-ups at home either, so it was scaled to pull-ups for me.
I did all singles with the barbell and 3×4 for my pull-ups, without wearing any grips. Finished in 9:49. Today was my first test of the mat setup and it worked great for the metcon. I really need to get my new rack on the wall though because squatting off the blocks is getting really old. I stacked up a couple of plates on the blocks today so I didn’t have to do a half squat to get the bar off of them.
