Spent 20 minutes working up to a 1-rep max front squat. I worked up 135, 155, 185, 205, 225, 255. Then, I failed 3x at 270 😕. A bit disappointed in the performance today, but such is life.


9 min EMOM:

  • Min 1: Max Front Squats (135)
  • Min 2: Front Rack Barbell Hold
  • Min 3: Max K2E

We capped each minute at :50 to allow for transition time. Here’s how I faired:

  • FS: 16, 15, 12
  • Hold: :50 all rounds
  • K2E: 20 each round

That front rack got hard!


Jumped into the noon class today. Back on a pretty solid schedule with Charlotte’s new job. She’s able to take Quinn in the mornings, which means I get to hang out and get more work done early on in the day.

We started with a little EMOM to warm up:

8 min EMOM:

Odd: 4 Push Jerks (65/95/115/135)
Even: 5 Strict Chest-to-Bar Pull-ups

Push jerks felt pretty good, which was great because we headed into:

13 min AMRAP:

6 Push Jerks
10 Knees to Elbow

I scaled the push jerk weight to 135# instead of the prescribed 185#. I still had to end up breaking up the set of six around the fifth set. I ended up getting 8+2. All of the K2E were unbroken.

Afterwards, we hit the following finisher:

100 Hollow Rocks*

*Every 10 reps, do :30 plank


Joined in on the 11:30am Sprint class today while the mother-in-law watched Quinn again. The little guy did not sleep well last night so Charlotte and I were both functioning on maybe 5 hours of sleep.

The workout was:

8 rounds for time:

200m Run
10 K2E
10 Push Press (35# DBs)

Time: 13:36

Everything was unbroken, but my grip was starting to fade on the last few rounds. It was also 20 degrees outside so a bit sprite to be running 🏃🏻

After the workout, I worked on some overhead squat strength:

E2MOM for 14 min:

3 OH Squats

I went 65, 95, 115, 135, 145, 155, 165 (f). Overall, I was pretty happy to hit 155. It felt really solid, and I should’ve hit 165 for sure. I just lost it on the third rep. Considering my 1 RM is 170# though, solid progress.
