My back did seem to loosen up for the rest of the day yesterday. Legs were feeling a little tired from the machines.
- Bottom Squat Hold
- Dead Hang
- Shoulder Stretching
- 7 Thrusters (135#)
- 14 Bar-facing Burpees
My goal was unbroken on the thrusters, keep a good pace on the burpees and not stare at the bar too long. Probably took more rest before each set of thrusters than I should have, but I almost got stuck in the last set, so maybe I wouldn’t have been able to stay unbroken. This had the feel of an Open workout and I’m very happy with a 6:25.
Can we get some heavy thrusters in this year? I’m extremely proud of how I’ve converted bar-facing burpees from a weakness to a strength over the last 11 months. It was always a movement I dreaded and led to some of my lower Open placements.
Was surprised how well I recovered and was able to start the accessory work 10 minutes after.
- 10 Supinated Pendlay Rows (95#)
- 10/10 Single Leg Deadlifts (95#)
- 10/10 Half Kneeling Bottoms Up KB Presses (26#)
Single leg deadlifts burn! The kettlebell presses were more stable than I ever remember them. Could have been because I was really warm from the thrusters or maybe not that my shoulders are healthy and I’ve been able to work them pretty hard.
E90S – 4 Rounds
- 6 Floor Wipers (3 each side, 45# plate)
- 20 Russian Twists (45#)
- 30s Hollow Hold
Only 6 floor wipers each round was too few if you ask me. Didn’t think I would be able to hold the hollow for 30 seconds every round, but I was able to suffer through it.
Worked on my handstand walking again. First I did some holds near the wall, trying not to touch it. I feel like that gets me warmed up and used to the positioning. Then I did some walks up to the wall and finally some on the open floor. I came close to getting five feet a couple of times. Still work to do!
8 Rounds (Tabata)
- 20s Double under
- 10s Rest
Had one miss in round four or five. I feel like I’ve gotten slow with my dubs and that was evident when I only got 32 in the first round. After that I worked on speeding it up. Finished with 280 reps, which is a common number for me in this. My best is 286.
