I got a strong start to this training week and an even stronger finish at the end. I am very pleased with the effort.
Jump Squats, up an 18″ plyo box down to full squat: 3 x 15.
Sandbag Clean & Press, 50# max number of reps in 5 minutes: 50. Got 13 reps in last minute.
Snatch Balance, x 3: 88/88/88/88/.
Snatch singles: 88/88/88/90/93/95/95/95/97/97/100/100/102/102 + 7 OHS/. Noticed a big improvement in those lifts because I started using the hook grip.
Kettlebell Swings, 44 kg: 6 x10.
Jump Squats, w/44# bar: 3 x15 w/1 minute rest between.
Squat Clean & Front Squat singles, using the hook grip: 95/95/115/115/135/135/155/155/175/175/175/175/.
Metcon Barbell Complex, 5 rounds, 5 each @ 95# of:
- Burpee + Power Clean
- Bent Over Row
More Thrusters: 4 x 10
Back Squats (wearing Adidas Sambas)
This was my best squat workout in a while. I got nice and deep on all reps and felt great at 90% (315) which tells me my 1RM max is about to make an increase. I stuck with the plan and did the reps. they will come in handy when I go for a new PR.
