My pecs are still sore if I press on them. Legs feel good though. In at 10am for open gym.
- 3×10 Reverse Hypers (160#)
No B.S. Bench Press
Yeah! Doubles next week and then I’ll start another cycle of the program instead of testing a max.
- 30 Snatches (75#)
- 30 Thrusters
- 30 C&J
** 100m run each time you drop the bar
This was inspired by a workout Brooke Wells did with the Buttery Bros, but I moved the thrusters from the end to the middle and added the running penalty to force large sets.
It went better than expected. I was able to do the snatches unbroken. My runs weren’t anything fast because I was trying to recover before hitting another large set. I did 20 thrusters before breaking. Then 10 thrusters plus 15 C&J because they were getting slow and my shoulders were getting tired. This allowed me to fly through the final 15 thrusters and finish in 8:01, while running three times.
- 6x Tuck-up, V-up, Straddle-up
- 30s Rest
Got this from Kari Pearce and decided on the 30 second rest on my own since she didn’t say. At the end of the 3rd cycle it get tough and then the second half of the last cycle was a bit of a struggle. The v-ups were the hardest by far because of the increased range of motion. Only took 3:07 to complete, but it was intense.
Year of the Engine – Endurance
I was hoping it would cool off in the evening, but it definitely didn’t. I headed out at 7:45pm. It was 84° when I got done. Ran 3.63 miles. Spent too much time in zone 4, so maybe I should switch my Garmin to alert me when I go out of zones 2-3 instead of concentrating on averaging under a 10:00/mile pace. The WHOOP heart rate data shows that it just keeps rising over the entire run.
