Tuesday 23.6: Front squat, Hspu, High box

Tuesday. Front squat triples (max 120kg). Metcon, 7 rds of: 7 front squat (70kg), 7 high box (70cm), 7 hspu. Time, 12.41.

I set up a date with Jasper at the gym. Agenda was familiar. Move some barbell and then get a good sweat on with your buddy for a badass workout. For me, it was more squats. Jasper's role was to focus deadlifts. But the big question is what happened in the morning? Pauliina woke me up at 6.00am for a morning walk. Wen went for half an hour / 3.3km walk in the central park of Helsinki. That was a great way to start the day!

  • Front squat triples (90, 100, 110, 115, 120, 110kg)
My body never really got fully warmed up for some reason. It felt cold and maybe the rest between sets was too long, or then it was just mental stuff =) Anyway, I wasn't at my best this time but was still able to move decent weight. These were triples, and I built it up by feeling, reaching 120kg for the heaviest set. Didn't max out on this one though. Then decided to drop down for 110kg before deciding to call it quits and work on the metcon with Jazz.

Couple of sets

Metcon. Time, 12.41
  • 7 rounds of:
  • 7 front squat, 70kg
  • 7 high box jump, 70cm
  • 7 handstand push-ups
Originally it was only front squats and hspu's but my training partner threw in some more ideas so this was what it finally ended up to be. Squats, box jumps and shoulder work. I went unbroken on this entire thing. Front squats turned out to be the toughest as my back was killing me midway on this workout. Saturday's deadlifts still felt in my back a little.

I thought it had gone away but all these front squats brought it back. Squats were tng for some time but then they started to form something like 5 reps, a pause and finish the set. Great wod for sure. It got to my strength and breathing. Those high box jumps were a big difference compared to normal box jumps.

Here's the metcon with Jasper
