This Friday we had scheduled some boys night out in the evening with Toni and some other friends. Before that we went to the gym where Toni focused on coaching and mobility. He's suffering from a back injury, hopefully just a minor one and we'll see him back in action soon. My focus was on heavy cleans and front squats. Don't know if that was the smartest thing as my legs were already smoked =) Metcon was a short but intense one, brutal on legs.
- Clean singles 1-1-1-1-1-1 (100, 102.5, 105, 107.5, 110f, 100kg)
- Front squat triples 3-3-3-3 (100, 110, 115, 120kg)
|Took some recovery in this pool and sauna combination in the evening|
Combination for strength consisting of cleans (& jerks) and front squats work very well together. It's been something like 2 months since previous front squats. I've been back squatting my ass off because of Smolov program and tried to minimize all other squatting. These felt rather heavy today but still okay solid. Nothing to worry about, kept knocking the weights up and down for triples. Max was at 120kg.
Metcon. Time 6.08
- 12-9-6-3 of:
- Squat clean, 60kg
- Burpee box jump

There was a little much enthusiastic in the beginning and I choke myself in the very beginning of this metcon. Both movements sucked. Cleans were easy but the squat was tough. Same with the burpee boxes, it definitely burned my legs big time! They were great but smoked be big time. This was a great training session, no doubt about it. Awesome to have Toni and also Joni with me there.
