We were planning on doing some barbell work all morning, but we got sidetracked hanging Charlotte’s pull-up bar. So, we ended up working out when the kids were in bed for naps, which meant no barbells. No worries – the latest Street Parking Vault workout (Nix) to do.
Feeling pretty good from yesterday. My triceps are the main pieces sore from the clean and jerks. Out in the garage at 1PM.
E2MOM for 20 minutes:
Max Burpees in remaining time
I went 19, 18, and then 8×15 reps for a total of 157. My original goal was 150 so I was happy with this! 200m runs took between 48 and 52 seconds.
I was doing 10 burpees every :50 for the first 200. Then, I slowed down drastically. For next year, I’ll probably try 12 EMOM for the first 100, 11 EMOM for the second 100, and 10 EMOM to close it out.
Headed into the 11:30AM class because Charlotte was working from home and able to watch the baby. My legs are feeling a bit sore after yesterday’s pistol accessory work.
3×4 min AMRAPs with 2:00 rest between:
8 Cal Bike
8 Hang Power Snatch (95#)
8 Burpee Over Bar
This was a “continue where you left off” kind of AMRAP so we ended with a running total. My individual rounds though were 2+20, 2+5, and 2+3.
Overall, I felt good throughout. I tried to keep a moderate pace on the bike so I wouldn’t burn out. The snatches were all unbroken. I maintained a very fast pace on the burpees for the first 5ish rounds but slowed down towards the end where I would take a quick breath before hopping over the bar each time. The bar definitely started to feel heavy towards the end!
Out in the garage to work out with Charlotte today around 11:45AM while Grandpa watched Graham. I ended up riding the Echo Bike for an easy 20:00 yesterday, which I thought would handle any leg soreness, but my left hamstring was still pretty sore from all the deadlifts on Wednesday. We warmed up pretty extensively and then hit this one.
10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 reps for time of:
Overhead Squats (115#)
To my surprise, I ended up going unbroken on all the overhead squats without much trouble. Finished in 11:01. I really enjoyed this one. We’ll probably program something similar in the upcoming months at CFU when looking for something overhead + below parallel at a lighter load.
Finished with some BTWB handstand walking accessory:
