Friday pulls were supposed to be on the program. It's quite often to combine squats and deadlifts towards the end of the week. Squats were on the table but my core or somewhere under the left ribs are feeling some sort of pressure when pulling heavy or sneezing / coughing. So I left deads alone and concentrated on a workout I named Benny after my beloved furry friend Benny who went to dogs' heaven exactly 2 years ago on this date.
- Back squat 5-5-5 (130kg)
Had to do these reps with a good pause on the top position. That's what I usually do when having a heavier barbell on my back or front rack. It was all good for each set. The last rep was kind of a fluke though. I lost control on the way down a bit but was able to save that in the bottom.
Benny. Result, 66 reps each round (round of 10's + 6 snatch)
- 3x5min amrap
- 3 min rest between sets
- 2-2, 4-4, 6-6… of:
- Power snatch, 40kg
- Box jump
At round of 8's I broke it in to 4-4, and the next round was 5-5. On the round of 12's I got 6 snatches done before hitting the time cap. On the last amrap I messed up with the rep scheme so I'm not quite sure how much work was completed in the 5 minutes. After round of 8's I started to think whether I skipped the 6's so I did it or re-did it. In the end I stopped after 10 reps had been done on both snatches and box jumps. Boxes were unbroken each time.
That means to say it was 6 reps shy of what I got on the two first amraps, or then 6 more reps, go figure. But one thing I know and that is this was painful in the end. And my dog was a bad ass, and I miss him.
- Kettlebell swings, 28kg
- Handstand push-ups
