Rather frustrating day today with Graham. We transitioned him out of the swaddle, which means he’s not napping well. Ultimately, as soon as I finished my warm-up today, the baby was awake, which made for a frustrating workout experience.
E2MOM for 10 minutes, complete the following complex:
2 Snatch Grip Deadlifts
2 Hang Power Snatch
2 Overhead Squat
I worked up 65, 95, 115, 115, 115. Felt meh, but this was largely because I was frustrated with Graham.
9 min AMRAP:
3, 6, 9, 12… Hang Power Snatch (95/65)
25 Double Unders After Each Set
I had tested a variation of this workout last Monday. We scaled it from 12 down to 9 minutes. This time around, I was 7 reps into the round of 21.
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:
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:
10 Push Press (35# DBs)
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.
