My shoulders and triceps are feeling yesterday. Last night my legs felt fatigued and I was tired in general. Didn’t seem to sleep great, but I’m also feeling tired today. Went to the 4pm class.
- 250m Row
- 10 PVC Pass Thrus
- 10 PVC OHS
- 10 KB Glute Bridges (35#)
- 20s Handstand Hold
- 5 OHS (45#, 3111 tempo)
I started with a squat snatch until 165 when I started to power it and then do the squats. We were supposed to stay with a weight for the last five sets, but I failed the last rep of the 2nd set of those. Whoops! Didn’t realize my back was so tight from yesterday until getting into these lifts.
- 30 Ball Slams (30#)
- 20 Bear Hug Lunges (30#)
Was really dreading 150 ball slams with tired shoulders. After two rounds I settled in (or went numb?) and tried to chase down Michelle and Kyle by not resting at all between movements the rest of the way. Finished in 9:47.
Had planned these muscle-ups well before knowing what today’s workout would be. A fatigued state is a good time to work on shit like this though. Makes it easier in the middle of a workout. I think the last time I tried a max sets of muscle-ups was 2015 and I’ve been stuck on a PR of 9 since doing it a couple of times that year. I was confident I could break finally get double digits, but wasn’t convinced it was going to happen after the type of workout I just finished. I did give myself 15-20 minutes to recover though.
E3M – 4 Sets
- MAX Unbroken Muscle-ups
My first few reps were all over the place before I found my swing; then I felt good. Got 10 finally and didn’t use my hips enough for the 11th. Shit like that happens when I focus on a specific number so much. Curious what I can do fresh. My other sets felt good as well and I made sure to use my hips through all of them. Surprised myself by not decreasing too much. I ended up with 10-7-6-6.
There is a storm rolling in overnight, so tomorrow will be a garage workout or maybe a rest day if I need it.
