Grippy Snatches

My triceps and upper back were still pretty sore yesterday, but it’s almost gone today. Out in the garage at 4pm.

Warm-up

  • 3:00 BikeErg (1,562m)
  • 80′ Lateral Monster Walks
  • 80′ Monster Walks
  • 10 Monster Squats
  • 20/20s Bottom Pistol Holds
  • 10 Toe Touches
  • 5 Hang Power Snatches (45#)

Legs

3 Sets

  • 20 alt Pistols
  • 10 Barbell Hip Thrusts (95#)

I’m not sure what was going on with my last week and even warming up today, but I was really hesitant to do pistols. I buckled down and found my technique again though.

3 Sets

  • 10/10 Staggered Stance RDL (barbell, 95#)
  • 15 DB Goblet Squats (50#)

I don’t think I like these staggered stance Romanian deadlifts.

Conditioning

12:00 EMOM (alt)

  • 15-15-12-12-12-12 Hang Power Snatches (75#)
  • 10 Bar-facing Burpees

Ewww! 78 is a lot of snatches after zero in three months. Originally I wrote this to be 10 powers but switched to the hang at game time to save my back. Since they’re quicker from the hang and the first round was feeling good I went for 15 reps. In round two I knew that was a bad idea as my rest time was quickly being eaten up. So I dropped to 12 reps in round three and told myself to survive the 4th set and then I could quit the workout. I got through the fourth and knew I could suffer through two more rounds. My grip almost had other ideas and those final two rounds were rough!

Shoulder Doubled

I thought about doing some BikeErg intervals yesterday, but went with a complete rest day. My right calf is still no good, so limited it what I can do. Workout at 4pm.

Warm-up

  • 2:00 BikeErg (1,053m)
  • 80′ Lateral Monster Walks
  • 80′ Monster Walks
  • 10 Monster Squats

Legs

3 Sets

  • 10/10 Pistols (band support from bar)
  • 10/10 Single Leg Glute Bridges

The last couple of times I’ve attempted pistols I’ve been hesitant for some reason. Then when I got in to position today my hips kind of felt weird. So I went with the band, which is a lot different than alternating legs!

3 Sets

  • 10/10 Staggered Stance RDL (70#)
  • 10/10 Single Leg Stability Ball Hamstring Curl

Tried something different with the staggered stance.

Conditioning

Warmed up with 10×45#, 6×95, and 4×115 clean and jerks.

8:00 AMRAP

  • 4 C&J (115#)
  • 8 Burpees
  • 16 Air Squats

Got through 6+3 with a steady pace throughout. I was starting the 4th jerk when the time went off. It was my only attempted double through the workout, doing all singles. I really should have tried to do at least doubles. Easing back in to shoulder work though.
