6:00 a.m. WOD
A) Back squat, volume day. 8x65%, 8x70-73%, 2x6 at 75-80%
Same rep scheme as on Friday, with slightly higher percentages.
I did 8x135#, 8x150# and 2x6 at 165#. I should have really done 2x6 at 170#, I think. The sets of eight were a bit of a grind, but the 2x6 was pretty easy in comparison. I’m feeling good about this. Really good. With the added 15# to my front squat 1RM, I’m feeling pretty damn confident about squatting in general right now. Apart from the fact that I’m constantly freaking starving because of it.
B) 15 minute E3MOM, score lowest round:
- 1 min: 45 seconds rowing
- 2 min: 45 seconds of DUs
- 3 min: 30 seconds burpees
Rowing: 190m, 190m, 188m, 188m, 187m. Consistency, baby.
DUs: 51, 42, 42, 51, 39. Hot mess. My shoelaces came untied too.
Burpees: 8 every round. This was a strategic choice.
I expected this to simultaneously be worse and easier. The rowing took far more from me than I expected, but for a 15 min metcon this wasn’t terrible at all. I like EMOMs and I like switcheroo WODs.
