Finally back in action! Okay I still had to take a magic pill for these hip flexors and that's also the reason why I took it a bit easier on the legs but it sure made good to enter the gym and start working out. Muscle-ups need to be honed a lot, so today was an emom training. Then some strict presses and metcon of hspu's and cleans.
- Every minute on the minute for 10 minutes:
- 2 ring muscle-ups
Yes, I can do a double, no problem but I haven't really tested how it feels doing them every minute for a certain period of time. This could be a good progression to build up the number of repetitions per set. Go figure. I'm also happy my feet are much more together than they used to be back in the days. Thus, it feels more controlled.
- Shoulder press
- 5x40, 5x50, 5x55, 3x60, 3x62, 3x62kg
You'll see the lifts below in the video recap
Metcon. Result, 97 reps (6 rounds + 1 hspu)
- 8min amrap of:
- 8 handstand push-ups
- 8 hang power clean, 50kg
I got hspu's unbroken for couple of rounds, then had to start breaking them down after 4-5 reps. Shoulders really felt the damage on this one, very good burn up there. Cleans weren't that bad but I like the fact it was 50kg instead of a heavier bar. The length of the workout wasn't that long so if the bar was 60kg or more it would have slowed me down quite a bit and the purpose of this wod was to go faster.
The workouts have been released for the upcoming Crossfit Regionals. It's gonna be a spectacular weekend of working out among the fittest of the fittest. Some day it would be awesome to be on the spot cheering for our idols!
