I am normally really good at pacing myself correctly. This one was a challenge because I couldn’t predict how deadlifts and pushups were going to break down. First two rounds were definitely not *fast*— kept it smooth and steady, heart rate wasn’t jacked or anything. I think it really was just a breakdown of strength— should I have gone even slower in rounds 1&2, knowing that strength would become a problem?
Getting hella strong!
Barbell row 75x10x3
Squat and press feel damn heavy. This was my first time doing BB rows in strength cycle and they felt fine. I think I can stand to add another 5-10# next week.
PS as I was starting my walk home the entire AG class ran by me and Daniel was like “aren’t you glad you’re in strength cycle?” Yes, yes I am. It’s damn hot!

20 min @2:30-2:40 split
rest 5 min
Gotta good erg work in the sun! buns hate sitting for that long 40 mins of rowing is tough!
B) 4 rounds:
10m Reverse Bear Crawl Plate drag
5 each Lateral Ball Throws*
:30 Perfect Hollow Hold (bend knees as necessary)
10 Parallette Shoot Throughs
Hollow holds are SLIGHTLY better. slightly. and C Fox actually helped me a lot with the shoot throughs. I have a fear of reversing the position. I fear nothing in the gym. But i fear shoot throughs. Its amazing. I feel like my arms are going to fall off and im going to smash my face or something. Idk. Anyway! i did ONE shoot through to the reverse position. and then my heart rate went up and i got nervous and called it quits. lol!
@3012 4-6 reps, 3 sets, rest 2-3 min
happy with my efforts here! I wanted to drop and be sure I could get 6. This was a VERY good choice. This was the absolute most work i could have completed today for sure. Learning to be confident with that extra second.
@20ft, 3 sets, rest 30s
feeling pretty good! 3×20 unbroken and i feel like i can travel further now! Im not falling at the end
@4-6 reps, 3 sets, rest 30s
do not rip!
Sick! Turnover felt slow because i was thinking about whipping the legs back in the kip instead of my stricter version. Some i felt were super easy! but yeah had a good moment with that. Hip explosiveness was shaky today. But still happy with that 6! I really want to try and push all 6 for each set.
15 reps, 3 sets unbroken, rest 3 min
3×15 unbroken felt great today! stronger.
C)4 sets @ very hard effort
10s AB for max cal
rest walk 2:30
still looking for repeatability here. if you fall off by more than 2-3 cal cut it
Not bad at all! Definitely need to learn how to drive again and i have a terrible start technique. I dont have a clue how i got 4 in the first round because i felt like i was relearning how to stay connected to the bike and drive better towards the end. I swear its about wear the pedals and handles are sometimes. any tips would be appreciated!

Your workouts are so cool!!!! It’s amazing.
Also, shoot through!?!? Haha!
Got back at 2am from 5 intense days of hiking at Yosemite so taking it easy this week.
Bench: 95x6x3 (dropped 5# from last week because I didn’t hit the 6th rep last week)
Step ups: 20# to a 20″ box. Easy but plenty after all the uphill and stairs from my trip!
Russian KBS @24kg instead of DLs because DLs have been hurting my back even when light.
Strict HSPUs to two mats.
Took my time and was still challenging.
Finished 5 rounds plus 6 swings each round.
Was going to go to SC and go light but feeling jet lagged. Plus I’m sick.
