All Tens

My shins started to feel the broad jumps about an hour before today’s workout. Did 60 Arm Circles and a bit of hanging to loosen up.

Starting a Yoga Program

We’re going to start doing more yoga and the woman we followed on Sunday has a 30 day playlist which we’re going to progress through, just not in 30 days because we’ll try to do them on rest days and maybe on the weekends. Yesterday we did day one, which was 29 minutes long.

I’m posting this the next morning and realized I don’t really look things up in BTWB anymore, so I cancelled my subscription and will stop double posting my workouts.

  • 10 Renegade Rows (50#)
  • 10 Incline Back Fly (20#)
  • ~190m Row
  • 8/8 Lateral Step-downs (12”)
  • 12 Reverse Lunges

Parter-ish workout with B, so the distances are rough estimates of what I was getting. Took us 21:59.

Gymnastics

We did some spotting and worked on not relying on the wall for handstand kick-ups.

Midline

Tabata

  • 10 alt Single Arm Single Leg V-ups (8# DBs)
  • 9 Leg Raises
  • 20 Russian Twists (45# plate)
  • 14 alt Side Crunches

Pump the Brakes

I’m definitely feeling some fatigue and head fog from the booster shot. So I went easy on the workout.

Back

4 Sets

  • 12/12 Single Arm Incline DB Row (25#)
  • 12 Incline Back Fly (15#)

4 Sets

Burpees and Push-ups

Walked 18 holes yesterday and mowed the lawn at night. My legs are getting sore in some new places from that DLB stuff.

Back & Arms

3 Sets

  • 12 Double Handle Lat Pulldown (104-104-115#)
  • 12 Dumbbell Curls (25#)

3 Sets

  • 12 Straight Arm Lat Pulldowns (60#)

    • 10 @ 35#
    • 10 @ 30#
    • 10 @ 25#
    • 14 @ 20#

Much better starting out heavier for this drop set type stuff. Still nasty though.

Conditioning

5 Rounds

  • 50m Sandbag Carry (100#)
  • 12 Burpee
  • 16 OH Crunch (40# DBs)
  • 20 Push-up

Fell in to a pace and picked it up at the end. I went 10-5-5 on every set of push-ups, which was tough. Finished in 14:28.

Then we spent an hour digging the final post hole for the outdoor gym area.

Unbroken 20s

We were going to go out for an easy run and do push-ups throughout, but it started raining. Out in the garage around 4:30.

Conditioning

4 Rounds

  • 2:00 TrueForm Run
  • 20 Push-ups
  • 2:00 BikeErg
  • 20 Push-ups

Started out standing on the bike in the first round but we quickly decided that was not a good idea to continue. I managed to do every set of push-ups unbroken, which was surprising. My distances were 0.38 – 0.41 – 0.43 – 0.45 km on the TrueForm and 1,032 – 1,056 – 1,059 – 1,086 meters on the bike. That has hard!

Back

3 Sets

  • 15 Lat Pulldown (104-93-93#)
  • 15 Lean back Lat Pulldown (104-93-93#)

3 Sets

  • 15 Straight Arm Pulldown (49#)
  • 15 Incline Back Fly (20#)

Friday Hour

My abs are finally not sore! My shoulders, upper back, and triceps are feeling the Murph prep though and my knees feel a bit odd today. Out in the garage at 4pm. I did some PVC passes to loosen up a little.

Back

3 Sets

  • 15 Seated Wide Grip Horizontal Row (93-104-104#)
  • 15 Incline Back Fly (20# DBs)

3 Sets

  • 15 Seated Double Handle Row (104#)
  • 15 Incline DB Row (30# DBs)

Higher rep back work to help with Murph volume.

Conditioning

  • 50 Sit-ups
  • 50 Handstand Push-ups
  • 50 Sit-ups
  • 50 Push Press (95/65)
  • 50 Sit-ups

Heavily modified Mayhem workout, which was 30 GHD sit-ups throughout and had the push presses first. I knew doing the HSPU second would have been a disaster. I hoped to be able to do 5×10 on the HSPU but in the second set I quickly realized that would be a bad choice. I did 10, 5×6, and 2×5, taking over five minutes to get through them! For the push presses I was able to gut out 5×10. Nice to get a barbell back in our hands for pressing when it feels like we’ve used the dumbbells a lot lately. Finished in 14:29.

Everything done in under an hour and it was one of those workouts where lifting my arms in the shower after was a struggle.

1:09 Better

Out in the garage after 4pm, late for a Sunday.

Conditioning

15:00 AMRAP – Partner

  • Partner A:
    • 5/5 Single Arm DB Thruster (50#)
    • 10 alt DB Hang Snatch
    • 5/5 Single Arm DB Hang C&J
  • Partner B: BikeErg

I started with the dumbbell first and Brandi was on the bike. I completed 5 rounds with the DB, she had 8 more to go, and we totaled 5,950 meters.

Back

  • 10 Lat pull downs w/two handle (115#)
  • 10 Straight arm, palms forward, arms out incline back flies (15# DBs)

  • Big Hollow Flutter Kick (single leg raises)
  • Oblique Heel Touch
  • Russian Twist
  • Lying Leg Lift (w/o hip raise)

First round done in 3:32 and 7:08 overall, which is a huge PR by 1:09!! We decided not to do the round of 10 today.

More Double Dumbbells

Was thinking about doing some rowing intervals, but I wasn’t feeling well in the afternoon, so it became a complete rest day. I had today off work to prep a bunch of stuff for work on the living room and sunroom all weekend. Out in the garage just before 4pm.

Warm-up

  • 3:00 SkiErg (669m)
  • 80′ Lateral Monster Walks
  • 80′ Monster Walks

Conditioning

6 Rounds

  • 12 Double DB Hang Power Cleans (50/35s)
  • 12 Double DB Push Press (50/35s)
  • 24 Sit-ups

My plan was to split the push presses up to 6-6 or 7-5 from the start but they felt good so I went for it. Finally had to break for the last 5 of them. Finished in 11:10. Really happy with how this went. I thought the push presses were going to be really bad after the way there were in that Qualifier workout I had tried.

Back

3 Sets

  • 12 Lat Pulldowns (115#)
  • 12 Pendlay Rows (95#)

This was a really tough superset after the workout.

3 Sets

  • 12 Straight Arm Lat Pulldowns (60#)
  • 12 Incline Back Fly (25# DBs)

Midline

  • 10s Rest
  • 20s Plank DB Pull Throughs (50#)
  • 10s Rest
  • 20s Hollow Rocks
  • 10s Rest

I did 15 toe reaches, 36 bicycles, 12 pull throughs, and 20 hollow rocks every round. This was rough after 144 sit-ups!
