2/3/20

Headed to New York today for a meetup, but I got in the 5AM class before flying out.

“Uppercut”

On a 12:00 running clock, perform 20 Ring Muscle-Ups. Then in the remaining time…

2 rounds:

  • 7 Power Cleans (135/95)|(95/65)
  • 7 Lateral Burpees Over Bar

into…2 rounds:

  • 5 Power Cleans (155/105)|(115/75)
  • 7 Lateral Burpees Over Bar

into…AMRAP in remaining time of…

  • 3 Power Cleans (185/125)|(135/95)
  • 7 Lateral Burpees Over Bar

I went 5-5-5-4-1 on the muscle-ups and finished around 3:40. I ended up getting 2+3 on the final AMRAP with the 185# bar.

Strength

Spend 20 minutes working up to a 1RM clean and jerk:

  • 1×95
  • 1×115
  • 1×135
  • 1×155
  • 1×185
  • 1×195 (PR!)
  • 1×205 (miss)

Nice to hit a PR! I actually felt really good in the gym today.

Metcon

3 rounds for time:

  • 10 Power Clean (155)
  • 10 Shoulder to Overhead

I scaled the weight to 105# trying to get this done with some major intensity. My goal was to do all of the 10 shoulder to overhead done unbroken, which I accomplished. First round was all unbroken. Second and third rounds were 9 power clean/break/1 power clean + 10 shoulder to overhead.

Time: 3:11

12/3/19

Quinn was still sick with a fever. Luckily, Charlotte was able to get home early enough for me to hit the 4:30pm class.

The main work was:

E2MOM for 20 minutes:

  • Minute 1 & 2: Max Power Cleans
  • Minute 3 & 4: Max Rope Climbs

I chose #205 for the power cleans knowing it would be really tough. For the first 3 sets, I went 5 power cleans/4 rope climbs. I started missing the power cleans in set 4 and ended with 38 total reps. Still, 205# felt pretty solid today!

11/2/19

Busy morning with the coaches meeting and letting Char get in a workout so I headed in at 4:45am to knock out some work.

Strength

E2MOM for 10 minutes:

2 snatches + 1 hang snatch

No dropping the bar between reps. All were squat snatches. I worked up to 135 and failed there at the hang snatch. Still, I was happy to hit that for 2 touch-n-go squat snatches.

Then, I did some back squats:

  • 65%x5 (195)
  • 70%x5 (210)
  • 75%x5 (225)
  • 80%x5 (240)
  • 85%x5 (255)

I based all of the percentages off of 300#.

Conditioning

For time:

30 muscle-ups

Kicker: Each time you come off the rings, perform 3 power cleans at 135#.

Time: 10:43

I went 5 and 4 for the first two sets. 3s the rest of the way.

Core

3 sets of:

1x 5-position snatch halting deadlift*

All done at 155#

*Perform a 2 second pause in each of the following positions: 1″ off the floor, 1″ below the knee, launch mid-thigh, high hang. Smooth tempo returning to the start position.
