I don’t train much in the morning these days except on the weekend. It is a nice change-up though and the rest of day goes better it seems. The energy in the gym is good and there are a lot of the familiar faces I see during my regular times in the “box”. But it is mostly about the energy and my workouts are usually good with occasional PR’s having been set. This contrasts with my training days at Crossfit Marina when all my sessions were early in the morning, including Saturday. Those Saturdays were hard days, thanks to Steve’s “chippers”. I sucked at them most of the time, but I doubt I would have done them often on my own, and I still don’t. Having said that, I recently did a rather hellacious “chipper” on my own. Misery truly does love company!
Today, the energy was great in the gym but not necessarily in me, as I was not sufficiently recovered from last night’s training and did not seem to get much past the warm-up stage. No matter though, I left with a good workout.
I began with an 800 meter run. I did 3 rounds of the Crossfit warm-up and the same number of Burgener sets with an empty bar.
I drilled on the Snatch + Overhead Squats, x 3 with 45/45/65#. Continuing, I did Hang Squat Cleans + Push Presses x 3 for 65/65/95/105/110.
The workout concluded with 3 sets of 10 Reverse Hypers @ 55#
