Since yesterday was such a frustrating experience, Charlotte let me sneak out into the garage at 6AM to get a workout in while she watched Graham and Quinn slept.

3 rounds for time:

  • 200m Weighted Run (45#)
  • 20 Overhead Walking Lunges (45#)
  • 5 Bar Muscle-ups
  • 200m Run
  • 30 Squats
  • 10 Pull-ups

Time: 16:13

First time feeling comfortable knocking out bar muscle-ups on my rig at home. Success! Everything was unbroken, and I PRd from last time.

Still no baby yet! Yesterday was the official due date. We have a doctor appointment scheduled for later today. Given that the baby is going to come any moment now, I’m cherishing the workouts while I can still get them in.

I roped Zach into coming to the gym with me to knock out this week’s Monster Mash series from CrossFit Linchpin. We started around 10:45AM.

Part 1

7 rounds of:

  • 7 Burpee Box Jump Overs, 24″
  • 3 Bar Muscle-ups

Time: 6:56

Part 2

2 rounds of:

  • 35 Med Ball Cleans, 20 lbs
  • 15 Push Jerks, 115 lbs

Time: 6:39

Part 3

3 rounds of:

  • 25 Kettlebell Swings, 53 lbs
  • 15 Toes-to-bars
  • 15 Ring Dips

Time: 12:05

I’m not sure if it was because of the order, but these definitely progressed from most to least favorite! I was pretty out of gas by the final piece. Rested 5 minutes between pieces.

We were over at the Wilson’s house to discuss some gym stuff so Zach and I got after a partner WOD in his garage. Felt good to get on a barbell again!

With a partner for time:

  • 60 Deadlifts (265)
  • 80 Pull-ups
  • 400m Run (2x100m Run Each)
  • 40 Deadlifts
  • 60 C2B Pull-ups
  • 400m Run (2x100m Run Each)
  • 20 Deadlifts
  • 40 Bar Muscle-ups
  • 400m Run (2x100m Run Each)

I can really tell that I haven’t touched a barbell in quite some time. All of my calluses are gone! I didn’t quite feel normal when I was kipping on the bar either. Towards the middle of the muscle-ups, I started to tear in both my hands so we switched to toes-to-bar, which worked out fine. Time was 19:11.

9/24/19

Dropped into the noon class. I tried eating before the workout today to see if that would leave me some more gas in the tank. I felt a bit empty yesterday having fasted all morning:

For time:

21-15-9

  • Russian KB Swings (72#)
  • C2B Pull-ups

Straight into:

15-12-9

  • American KB Swings (72#)
  • Bar Muscle-ups

I went 7-7-7, 5-5-5, 5-4 on the C2B pull-ups. They felt pretty solid. The bar muscle-ups, however, were pretty blown up. I did sets of 3-4 the entire time, and ended up hitting CAP + 6 Rx.

8/30/19

Went to the 8AM class to get this one out of the way. We did a WZA online qualifier workout, which was fun although “AMRAP” was a misnomer in this case 🤣

16 min AMRAP:

  • 40 Alt DB Snatch (50/35)
  • 40 Pull-ups
  • 30 DB Burpees
  • 30 C2B Pull-ups
  • 20 Devil’s Press
  • 20 Bar Muscle-ups

I did all 40 snatches unbroken. Then, I split the pull-ups into quick-ish sets of 10. The burpees were in sets of 5 and the C2B in sets of 6. The Devil’s Press is where all hell broke loose. I was doing 2-3 the entire way having to hook grip the darn DBs so I wouldn’t drop ’em. I got to the bar with maybe :45 to spare and knocked out 5 bar muscle-ups for a total score of 165 Rx.
