Great weekend! In case you don’t know already, my wife and I are expecting a baby girl in November so I was busy painting and putting baby furniture together this weekend. It was good active recovery. I did get my 8 mile run in on Saturday morning, but it was slow. I was beat up from last weeks training. My shoulders were really sore, and I just didn’t really feel like running. Anyway, I got it done at a slow pace. 8:50 I think.
…and on to Monday:
4RM Overhead Press; 4×4 @ 90%
4 Rep max this morning was 130lbs. Felt pretty good. Not sure if that’s a PR or not, I’ll have to go back and look. So I did the 4×4 at 120 lbs.
EMOM for 8 Minutes 1 x Jerk @ 90%
I went ahead and worked up to a 1RM first of 185 lbs. Then I did the workout at 165 lbs. These felt really good.
- 32 Pistols
- 16 Handstand Pushups
Holy smokes, more pistols and HSPU’s. After all those presses and jerks, HSPU’s just weren’t happening. I did a couple strict, kipped a few, then moved on to a pike press off of a box. The good news is that I did the pistols down to a 10″ box. Last week I had a 25lb plate on the 10″ box, so today I was able to go a bit deeper! That’s very good. Legit pistols coming soon. Anyway, looking forward to this week. I’m feeling good and ready to crush something…
