Up early to start Super Sunday at CFi at 8:30 with Alex and Brent. I did Crossover Symmetry Activation and then some light stretching.
- 10×45# Back Squat
- 2×24″ Box jump
- 5×135# Back Squat
- 2×30″ Box jump
- 5×185# Back Squat
- 1×38″ Box jump
- 5×215# Back Squat
- 1×41″ Box jump
- 5-5-5-3-3-1 Back Squat
- 2-1-2-1-2-1 Box Jump
I wasn’t even thinking, but that’s a standing box jump PR. I’d done 47.5″ seated, but never that high standing. Squats felt good with my back. Slowly building it back up. Haven’t attempted 300+ in weeks.
Weightlifting & Gymnastics
Did 5×45#and 3×95# muscle snatches, then 2×135# power snatches.
- 2 Power Snatches (155#)
- 4 C2B Pull-ups
Both movements back to back every minute. Felt solid. Butterfly is getting easier and easier. Figured I’d switch up the chest to bar work today by pairing it up with a lift and kill 2 birds with one stone.
- 3:00 Tabata
- 20s Thrusters (45#)
- 10s Rest
- 1:30 Rest
I think last week was much worse, so hopefully means this work is paying off. I really enjoy being able to think about improving different parts of the squat and press during all of these reps. Pushing the bar back on the press in having a good carryover to my other overhead lifting movements. I did 8 reps every work period except for the final one when I busted out 10.
Brent talked me into going over to Survival Fitness for the 11am class for a partner workout with him. Sure, why not! It was a big class with 30 people. We formed 2 lines and did a dynamic warm-up of stuff like zombie kicks, lunge & twist, butt kicks, bear crawls, power skips, and I don’t remember what else. Then teams split up into the different areas and we rotated between 3 different 10 minute workouts.
- 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 OHS (75#)
- 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 Ring Rows
* Partner A does a round of 10 and then partner B does a round of 10. Same with 9 and so on. After the round of 1, start again with 10.
We were cruising for the most part with ring rows slowing us down a bit. I started us off, we got through the entire ladder, both did another round of 10, I got through the round of 9, and then Brent got 8 of 9 OHS.
- 15 cal Air Dyne (AD6)
- 80′ Burpee Broad Jump
* One partner working at a time. Split up work however you want.
I started off on the AD, Brent came at my from the other side of the building for 40′ of the burpee broad jumps, and then I did the second half. Then he was ready to go on the AD and we kept using that same strategy throughout, which worked really well. We got through 9 rounds of the AD (so I did 5) and then Brent was one burpee broad jump short of getting us 40′.
- MAX Prowler Push
- 50′ High Push
- 50′ Low Push
We got in 2 attempts each. I did 270# on the sled (which weighted another 20# or so) and then 360#. Pretty brutal after all the work I’d done so far for the day.
Off to golf 18 (with card) this afternoon. I should sleep well tonight!
