Squats all the way. It was great to have those back in the system. After strength I got two metcons with short intervals. The first one was inspired by "Monday Monster Mash", and the other now was just another creation for fun. It was sick to get those hspu's back in the game!
- Back squat triples
- Weights 90, 110, 120, 130, 132.5, 130, 130kg
Beautiful things happening here
Metcon. Result, 84 reps (6 rounds)
- 5min amrap of:
- 7 thruster, 40kg
- 7 pull-ups
Pat Sherwood's legendary Monday Monster Mash looked pretty good in today's post. Total of 5x5min amraps with 5min rest in-between. The first one looks Fran-ish and the second one like Diane. Third one would be close to Elizabeth had the du's been ring dips. Anyway, this is something worth thinking about when a longer workout is at hand. But for today this was way too long for me because there had to be squats in the beginning.
I cherry picked the first one of thrusters and pull-ups, 7 reps in both stations for a total of 5 minutes. I did them unbroken, those amounts were manageable. Thrusters were probably even easier than the pull-ups. Especially as I didn't wanna break these sets at all. Hmm, it's worth a shot how it would have turned out had I grabbed the barbell right away and then cut the pull-ups in pieces. Today's result was exactly 6 rounds.
Metcon. Result, 105 reps (7 rounds)
- 5min amrap of:
- 5 handstand push-up
- 10 box jump
This metcon was rough. My first thought on hspu's was that I couldn't do too many of those, just to give my wrist a break. But 5 reps would be something that's easy to do. In the beginning it felt like it's too little and it's all about box jumps. Well, it was, but those hspu's got a little spicier too. But this was a lot about how efficiently I can do box jumps. Round times were very evenly distributed. It took me about 40-46 seconds to finish one round.
