I had plenty of time to hassle in the morning. I dropped Pauliina to work earlier than normally, around 8 o'clock. This was the perfect opportunity to hang around for hours at the Box and torture my body. However, this human being was already hammered pretty bad so I took plenty of time for mobility in the beginning. That was a good call because everything felt kind of sore. That really helped.
- Push jerk 5x40, 50, 60, 70, 60kg
- Push jerk with a pause 4x60, 60, 60kg
First there were normal push jerks with weights around 50kg and 70kg, light stuff but it was good for today. Then I thought about doing same movement with a pause in the dip position. Both elements felt alright today. Shoulders were a bit tight and my lats were tight too due to the pull-ups from Monday's hero workout Josh. I did foam roll them in the warm-up but couldn't quite get them to relax.
Metcon. Time, 13.28
- 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 push jerk, 50kg
- 2-4-6-8-10-12-14-16-18-20, toes-to-bar
It was somewhat surprising those t2b's were as challenging as they were. There was a total of 110 toes-to-bar and 55 jerks. I got the core element done unbroken up to the round of 10 reps. 12's were 8-4. From then on it was a misery. 14's were 6-4-4. Next one 4-3-3 and then mostly doubles. In the latest rounds there were singles among as well. It was just too much to handle linking bigger sets. But luckily dropping down from the pull-up bar is not an issue time wise because you can go back pretty quickly.
This was okay for a workout but as a bad ass metcon it left me a lot of good breathing in the tank. Because of all those drops from pull-up bar it didn't burn my lungs that much. Breathing was under control all the way but core was in flames at around 12 t2b's on.
