Wednesday's classic morning workout. Yesterday I thought about going for track sprints and / or some sort of running metcon but I couldn't write anything down that would have pleased me enough. Instead I found a gem from archives that was done with barbell. Spiced it up with handstand and rowing (sub for running) for conditioning. It turned out to be a great session!
- Handstand walk
- 5 sets for max distance
We spent last Friday in Vierumäki, where I practiced handstand walk after a longer break. That went very well, and that kicked things off and I wanted to have more of it. Started the day with handstand walks after a lengthy warm-up and activation. This was 5 attempts for as far as possible. This also went better than I had anticipated. I'm very happy about this.
Complex. Compare to 26.2.2014
- 1 power clean
- 1 squat clean
- 2 front squat
- 2 jerk
- Start at 40kg, add 5kg each set, till failure
This is something I've done couple of times in the past but it's been a while. I put the link above to the previous one. There you can find a link to the session before that etc. Cleans and squats were fine but I've done lots of different types of presses / jerks so my arms were sore before I even touched the barbell for the first time. Last overhead jerk was at 90kg. That wasn't beautiful so I stopped at that point.
Skills and barbell
Metcon. Finished the 5th round at 13.48
- 12min amrap of:
- 15 kettlebell swing, 28kg
- 15 box jump
- 300m row
This workout was simple and effective. Wouldn't have changed a bit in the programming. If it was a competition, transitions would have been shortened but I'm very pleased in today's session in general. Awesome morning workout!
