A Lot of Step-ups

My shoulders finally feel “normal” again after 21.1. Out in the garage at 4pm.

Warm-up

  • 3:00 BikeErg (1,515m)
  • 80′ Lateral Monster Walks
  • 80′ Monster Walks
  • 6 alt Back Rack Reverse Lunges (45#)
  • 5 Barbell Hip Thrusts (45#)
  • 6 alt Back Rack Reverse Lunges (95#)
  • 5 Barbell Hip Thrusts (85#)
  • 6 alt Back Rack Reverse Lunges (125#)
  • 5 Barbell Hip Thrusts (105#)

Legs

4 Sets

  • 12 alt Back Rack Reverse Lunges (145#)
  • 10 Barbell Hip Thrusts (125#)

Conditioning

20:00 EMOM

  • 12 alt Single DB Box Step-ups (24″, 50# on shoulder)
  • 4 Hang Power Snatch (115#)

I did 6×45 and 5×95 hang power snatches to warm-up before the EMOM. For the step-ups I switched shoulders every other round so didn’t have to switch in the middle of a set. Those step-ups really added up and my legs were really heavy through the second half of that.

Add More Reps

Out in the garage after 2:30 for a quick one.

Warm-up

  • 3:00 SkiErg (681m)
  • 40′ Lateral Monster Walks
  • 40′ Monster Walks
  • 5 C&J (45#)
  • 10 Step-ups (24″)
  • 5 C&J (75#)
  • 10 alt Single DB Step-ups (24″, 35# on shoulder)
  • 5 C&J (95#)

Conditioning

15:00 EMOM (alt)

  • 10 Bar-facing Burpees
  • 12 alt Single DB Step-ups (24″, 50# on shoulder)
  • 6-6-6-8-10 C&J (115#)

Six was too easy so I increased the clean and jerk reps for the final two rounds. I think eight all the way through would have been pretty good or ten if I really wanted to suffer.
