My hamstrings were getting sore yesterday too. My quads, hammies, and glutes are all still sore today.

Since we’re obviously not running outside we did a minute run around in the gym instead of 200 meters. Generally I don’t like when a cardio movement is subbed in as a timed piece, because there is no real incentive (other than improving your running) to run faster because a minute will always take a minute. I’m really good at sandbagging runs. 🙂 I’d rather work on my endurance with the barbell anyway since the Open has never had any type of running.
I did eight hang power cleans, dropped it, did the other two and transferred it to my back for all ten squats. Wore my belt the entire time, so was tightening and loosening it. Got through 6 rounds, the run, and the cleans.
Midline & Skill
- 6 Evil Wheels
- HS Walk Practice
Got some good tips from another member. My hands are too wide, probably from being used to wider stance for HSPU. Need to keep practicing with the Open coming up.
