200M Run
20 Front Squat (135/95#)

Result: 13:16

I was flying through the sets of 5 and 10 on the front squat. The runs felt easy (800 in roughly 3:10). I went 8/7 on the round of 15 with a 10 second break between sets. The last round really got me. I was planning on doing 2 sets of 10, but the short run break didn’t do me any favors. I ended up going 8/5/4/3 to finish up the last set. Not the way I wanted to finish, but I was still relatively happy with my time overall. I think realistically I should’ve been 12:30-12:45 if I hadn’t broken up the last set so much.

Did a 20 minute ROMWOD tonight while drinking a tasty IPA I picked up from Kokopelli Brewery right around the corner. This is the way to do a ROMWOD!

Death by Burpees

Result: 17+14

I felt really comfortable through round 14. I was utilizing a step up until that point. Then, I had to start adding in a hop and the cardio aspect kicked in pretty quickly. Realistically, I should’ve gotten 18+.

Worked on several sets of butterfly pull-ups after the workout. Still not using enough hip motion!

ROMWOD this evening!​

The wall ball + burpee combos weren’t bad at all. I was able to go all sets unbroken although I did step back for the burpees to maintain a constant tempo. Didn’t rest at all. I was out of the gym at 6:45. I started with sets of 25 on the lunges, but I quickly had to change to 10’s and 5’s with a quick 5 second break in between sets. Quads were really feeling it towards the end!

ROMWOD this evening.

Pretty frustrated with my time. My grip was the main weakness. I went unbroken for the first 2 sets and then had to go 15-6 for KB Swings and 4-3-3-2 for pull-ups on the final set. Not my best performance!

ROMWOD this evening.

I felt really good through the first 5 minutes. I finished 4 rounds + 2 push-ups which set me on pace for roughly ~9 total rounds. I ended up slowing down on the SDLHPs though. Instead of doing 10 straight. I was breaking them up into 5’s. Push-ups were into 5’s during the last two minutes. Jumps were straight through.

Felt good at the very start. Didn’t have to break in the first round of strict presses. Broke the first round of push presses down into 10, 5, 5. The push jerks started catching up to me. I went 6, 5, 4, 5, 5, 5. Should’ve gone 6×5 throughout. The second round of push presses were sets of 5’s. That last set of strict presses were in 2’s though. Really collapsed in that set. Rope climbs were all fine. Rested 5-10 sec between each rep.

Lats were really sore today for some reason. Spent some extra time on shoulder flexibility.
