I’m finally feeling better, but still feel a little off. And after this little ass-kicker, I’m really feeling a bit off.
STRENGTH: 6x3 Pause Back Squats (2 seconds in the hole)
These started easy and got hard enough that I couldn’t go up by 20# anymore. I did it in my nanos, only with knee sleeves as accessories. Sometimes it’s probably a good idea to ditch the extras and do some raw lifting. Can’t always wod in lifters, so it’s good practice.
WOD: 3 sets with increasing intensity each set
20 KBS 53/35#
20 Wall Balls 20/14#
20 Ab Mat Sit-ups
So, as that’s written, you’d assume there’s a rest, right? Each “set” is done separately and judged against the others? Yeah, that’s what I thought too. Apparently not. Should have just been 3 RFT. Coach needs to learn the “RFT” acronym. To me, “set” indicates separated by rest. You wouldn’t do 3 sets of back squats without resting.
Anywho, I did 4:22, 4:31, 4:25 RXd, starting at 0:00, 10:00, and 24:00 respectively with a running clock.
I rested until nearly recovered. Still a fantastic workout, even though I didn’t go straight through. Everything was unbroken except for the doubles. Those were not fun at the end, but were okay.
POST: 10 min EMOM 4-6 strict ring dips
Got 6 each round except for the 2nd (5 reps) because my elbow was doing something really strange and hurt a lot. 59 total reps.
I’m totally a bad person. After doing 5 days on, I should have taken 2 days off instead of 1. Totally too impatient for that. Plus sugar cookies + ice cream + cheesecake (sans crust) … needed to get back in the gym.
