I’m still feeling my left calf/achilles. My back is pretty tight from yesterday. Out in the garage at 11.
- 10:00 Airdyne (5.1 km, 205 cals)
- 6/6 Seated Single Arm Shoulder Press (25#)
- 6/6 Seated Single Arm Shoulder Press (40#)
10:00 EMOM (alt)
- 45s HS Hold
- 6/6 Seated Single Arm Shoulder Press (50#)
Planned on 5 power snatches here, but decided to substitute with my back feeling how it does from yesterday. No pain, but no reason to risk it by cycling a barbell.
I focused on pushing through my shoulders in the handstand holds to help translate into walking. It was terrible and I nearly failed the shoulder presses in rounds four and five. Got the stimulus I was looking for though when I designed this combo.
- Squat Jump
- 2 Plyo Lunges
This is “LEGS GONE BAD” Volume 2 from Craig Richey. One of the worst workouts I’ve ever done. Over the course of the first 25 times through you can get an idea for how bad it’s going to be. I did singles nearly the whole way, with a brief pause before my next squat. I had six poker chips out and moved one every 25 reps, so got a slightly longer break there, but I tried to get right back in to it. When I got done with 75 reps the clock was at 6:30. I was able to pick up the pace over the last 25 reps and even did a fair number of doubles, which were absolutely horrible at that point. Snuck under 13 minutes with a time of 12:50. I have a feeling that walking will be a challenge for a few days.
- 8 Tricep Press Downs (rope handle on cable pulley, 35#)
- 10 Barbell Curls (65#)
