Happy Monday! It’s Monday all darn day, isn’t it? HUMPH. I started my Monday off with an early morning workout, so I’m feeling like this week will be manageable, but before we get into that, let’s talk about last week’s workouts.
Spend 15 minutes working up to a heavy 5 rm
I worked up to about 205 and then called it a day. I find that I don’t lift as heavy in the mornings as I do in the afternoons, but generally perform better with metcons. Weird. Anyway.
*Complete 35 double-unders before each round
The Rx’d weight was 105, but I scaled and did 95lbs. And thank god, because that ended up being HARD. My grips strength sucks, so after dead lifts and then doing pullups (which I scaled too!) my grip strenth struggled with 95lb cleans. This was one was harder than I thought it would be.
I had an early am teleconference so I couldn’t get in at 5am. And then honestly after a long day when it was still 80 degrees at 5pm, I just didn’t feel like doing the workout. The weather is ready for tank tops but my arms are NOT. I’m going to have to wrap my brain around tank tops no matter what here shortly because it’s getting too warm to workout in sleeves.
Hang Clean 3-3-3
Power Clean 3-3-3
Squat Clean 3-3-3
I started these sets around 75lbs and worked my way up to 135lbs.
7 min AMRAP
Row for Cal
Box Jumps (24/20)
(3, 3, 6, 6, 9, 9, 12, 12…)
10 wall walks
Thursday was pretty much the same story as Tuesday. I had a pretty intense week at work this week, and on week’s like that if I’m not hitting 5 or 6am, I’m not working out. By the time I get to the end of the day I’m just mentally worked!
Work toward a 3RM
Once found, 3 x 3 @ 60-65% of your 3RM weight
I had never done floor presses before. Super different! I think I worked up to 115lbs.
Max rounds in 3 minutes:
3 power clean (95lbs)
6 push ups
rest 1 minute (Our coach says “The “Rest” portion just means breathe really hard for 60 seconds” And that about summed it up.)
Repeat 4 more times for 5 total cycles.
This was AWESOME/AWFUL! I loved this workout and it sucked supremely all at the same time. You know how that is, right? Like it was awful but I can’t wait to do it again. I dunno. I’m crazy. Whenever I see air squats in a workout I feel like “Oh, this should be nice” but then when the workout is done and you realize you just did EIGHTEEN ROUNDS of those air squats, all of a sudden it’s like “Oh shit, that’s gonna hurt tomorrow.”
And it did.
Saturday I did a bazillion errands, took Buster to get his weekly B12 shot and then took him for a long walk. That was about it on the workout frong.
I did bicep curls with my mimosa glass. hehe
We had Easter brunch with my whole family and I spent the day catching up with people instead of working out. It was nice.
What about you? Any PRs, or crazy fun workouts? Do tell….
