2021 AGOQ Events 1 & 2

Still no golf yesterday with the cold weather, but I did get a little time to tear apart more of the structure from the sunroom. I took today and tomorrow off work because I knew I’d be useless with the AGOQ happening. Tried to keep myself busy today with errands, small tasks around the house, and a nap. I got my garage setup early for event 1 so I could get it done shortly after the workouts were released at 3pm.

Warm-up

  • 5:00 BikeErg (2,230m)
  • 20 PVC Passes
  • Hanging
  • 10 DB Push Jerks (25#)
  • Bottom Squat Hold
  • 5 DB Push Jerks (40#)
  • Handstand Hold

2021 Age Group Online Qualifier Event 1

5 Rounds – 20:00 Time Cap

  • 15 HSPU
  • 15 DB Shoulder to OH (50# DBs)
  • 15 cal Row

My plan was 3×5 HSPU, 8-7 or 9-6 with the dumbbells, and around 1,200 cal/hr. That quickly changed on the second round of dumbbells. For the most part after that I was doing 4 sets on both movements. My average pace on the rower was probably about 1,150 cal/hr, expect for the final row when I sent it. Finished at exactly 19:00 and was wrecked!

Got to Next Level Fitness around 5:30pm.

Warm-up

  • Lay on GHD
  • Duck Walk
  • Partial Rope Climb
  • Toe Touches

2021 Age Group Online Qualifier Event 2

20:00 Time Cap

  • 60-50-40 GHD Sit-ups
  • 6-5-4 Rope Climbs (15′)
  • 60-50-40 Pistols

I hadn’t been on a GHD in well over two years and hadn’t climbed a rope using legs in about that long as well. For someone who has to be careful with low back tweaks, this is a scary workout I’m not conditioned for. My goal was to be smart and not get hurt. Wearing lifters for the pistols really affected the rope climbs and not in a good way. Just a nasty workout all around with so much interference on the low back in all three spots. Got through 28/50 pistols for 209 reps.

Starting to Squat Some Weight

Yesterday was cold and rainy, so no golf again. My upper body was sore from the dumbbell thruster and muscle-up workout. Didn’t seem to feel much of anything from the second dose of the vaccine, which was good. Sure was nice to have a rest day and I didn’t work on my living room project much either. My chest is pretty sore from the other day.

Warm-up

  • 3:00 BikeErg (1,523m)
  • 80′ Lateral Monster Walk
  • 80′ Monster Walk
  • 10 Monster Squats
  • DB Shoulder Press
    • 10×15
    • 5×30
    • 5×40

Weightlifting

Squat Clean + Hang Squat Clean

  • 5×45#
  • 3×95
  • 2×135
  • 155
  • 175
  • 185
  • 195
  • 205
  • 210
  • 215
  • 220

I belted up starting with the 175. Felt pretty good overall. The program called for two sets at 80% and three sets at 85%, but I wanted to work my way through smaller jumps.

Conditioning

Partner

  • 800/550m Row
  • 40 Double DB Deadlifts (50/35#)
  • 800/550m Ski
  • 40 Double DB Shoulder to Overhead (50/35#)
  • 1,600/1,100m BikeErg
  • 40 Double DB Squats (50/35#)
  • 1,600/1,100m BikeErg
  • 40 Double DB Shoulder to Overhead (50/35#)
  • 800/550m Ski
  • 40 Double DB Deadlifts (50/35#)
  • 800/550m Row

So I did 400 on the SkiErg or Rower, 800 on the BikeErg, or 2×10 with the dumbbells and rested while B did her share of the work. We finished in 23:55.

Midline

E4M – 4 Rounds

  • 50s Sandbag Bear Hug Hold (100#)
  • 20 DB Pull Throughs (60#)
  • 50s Plank
  • 30 alt DB Side Crunches (25#)

No work on my project tonight or tomorrow either. Stepping up the extra five pounds for those side crunches made a difference.
