3-6-10

I had a golf meeting on Thursday so didn’t end up doing yoga. Yesterday I worked on the hallway flooring for nine hours and was whooped! Took a little more than two hours this morning to finish laying the floor. Got out in the garage and warmed up with the PVC pipe.

I started out with a set of three unbroken pull-ups but then did singles every other round and usually did two quick singles, turned around and did the third. The push-ups were slowing me down the most. Got through 12+1.

Finally some nice weather this weekend so we’re going to put screen doors on, put out some bird feeders, golf nine holes, and cook up steaks.

Two Days Off

My parents came down Friday night and we needed a lazy day yesterday. Still sore from the workouts earlier in the week.

Arms

3 Sets

  • 12 Seated DB Shoulders Press (20-20-25#)
  • 12 Seated Arnold Press (20-20-25#)

  • 40 Goblet Squats (35#) + Goblet Squat Hold (35#)
  • 20 3-count V-ups + Plank

Saw this on Instagram and thought it looked fun. Brandi went first, which was a mistake because her grip was shot for the dead hangs and my grip is much better. We did 25s for the swings, 20s for the lunges, 9-9-6-6 for pull-ups, 10s for squats, and 5s for the V-ups. Took us 12:59.

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.

Chest

Bench Press

  • 10×45
  • 6×95
  • 4×135
  • 4×165
  • 4×185

Conditioning

10:00 AMRAP

  • 10 Pull-ups
  • 10 DB Hang Cleans (35#)
  • 10 Burpees

This combination really built on itself, especially after the previous work. Wore grips the entire time, did all of the pull-ups unbroken, and stepped every burpee to get 5+13.

Not Quite 22.3

Big surprise, thrusters and pull-ups for 22.3! You would think that after 10+ years of the Open they’ve give it a rest and come up with a new combination.

Warm-up

  • 80′ Lateral Monster Walk
  • 80′ Monster Walk
  • 10 Monster Squats
  • 10 Monster Toe Touches
  • 20 Trunk Twists
  • Dead Hang
  • 7 Thrusters (45#)

Conditioning

  • 21 Pull-ups
  • 42 Double Unders
  • 21 Thrusters (75#)
  • 18 T2B
  • 36 Double Unders
  • 18 Thrusters (75#)
  • 15 C2B Pull-ups
  • 30 Double Unders
  • 15 Thrusters (75#)

I sure as hell wasn’t going to do bar muscle-ups on our low bar like last year and I wasn’t going to the outside rig. So I put in toes-to-bars. Also not going to waste time switching the weight on the bar, so stuck to one weight and went light because we never really do thrusters due to our backs. I went 8-7-6 on the the pull-ups and then realized I haven’t done a double under in months! I missed many times in every round and my heart rate kept spiking. I went 8-7-6 on the first round of thrusters. Then 7-6-5 for both the T2B and second thrusters. Chest-to-bar pull-ups are my nemesis, so I did all kipping triples. Finished with unbroken thrusters at 11:49, taking a lot of too long breaks along the way. Was still wrecked after! Most importantly I made it out of the Open injury free this year without any stress.

Arms

3 Sets

  • 12 In & Out DB Curls (20#)
  • 12 DB French Press (45#)

Those French presses were hard after all of the thrusters.

Toss the Bar Around a Bit

I was really tired later in the evening, after processing wood for a bit. Today I’m feeling surprisingly good after those deadlifts. I can already feel my posterior chain though and I had still been sore from Wednesday’s workout.

Not used to tossing around weights so much, so had to get in some extra breathing at times. Finished in 23:32.

This was a lot harder than expected. I did everything unbroken, wore grips for pull-ups and was able to finish four full rounds plus through the mountain climbers. I couldn’t get myself to push the runs otherwise I might have been able to finish five rounds.
