Exposure 8 of 8
5 Rounds or 20 Minutes:
8-10 Dumbbell Lying Triceps Extensions
1-3 Rope Climbs
20 Hand-to-Hand Kettlebell Swings (10e)
Build to a challenging set on the Lying Triceps Extensions. If you’re a rope climbin’ ninja, go legless. If not, use today to work your way up a few feet or do sets of 3-5 strict Chin-Ups instead.

Allie B says
:60 supinated grip dead hang
12 Cuban press 22#
:20 handstand hold, :04 eccentric descent— handstand descent felt great!
4×16 right, 3×16 left DB high pulls 12.5#
2×16 each arm DB strict press 22.5#
1×13– maybe it was me trying to rush through this before 10am class, the poor sleep this weekend, the day drinking in Wisconsin, or the stress from flying the *worst* turbulence in my life yesterday, but I just didn’t have it today!
This weak streak continued in Monday’s workout.
Bench was really bad today. 95x4x3
— by the end, my bar path and technique got better.
Glad it was a chill workout today.
5 rounds: 1 rope climb, 8 tricep things 12.5#, 20 single hand KB swings 12kg/16kg
It’s amazing to feel the effects of a vacation. Feels pretty bad. :*(
Monday 6am with Ro and Lauren
Bench: 135×4,145×4,155×4,160×4, 165×3 (Failed on the last rep)
Made it to 4 rounds on the WOD.
8 DB Lying Triceps Extensions – 15, 20, 20, 1
20 H2H KB Swings – 16kg, 20kg, 24kg, 32kg

7am Open Gym
Power Snatch and Snatch Practice
1 P Snatch EMOM 10 Mins – 95 across
1 Snatch EMOM for 10 Mins – 105 for 6, 110 for 4
Today was a little tough, but overall a good day. I’ve been trying to get back into a good morning routine moving forward while keeping up with my Oly movements.
yesterday, 9am group class:
power snatch EMOM bonanza:
5’s @ 85, 85, 95
3’s @ 105, 105, 110
singles @ 115, 120, 125 (PR match for power snatch)
3’s @ 115, 110, 105
5’s @ 100, 100, 95
this was really fun! focused on leg drive and snappy finish. did my 3’s as bailed singles on the way down the ladder so I could push the weight.
tabata DU’s: 246
tabata pistols: 72
…started on L side no matter what so I could get some extra weak-side work in. these are feeling so much better! training is working.
my quads and butt are QUITE sore today!
solo session with some help from Harpz and Young James on spot patrol:
close grip bench press:
3x: 2-2-2, rest :20
rest 3min between clusters
@ 120# = 89%
did 2-2-1 on my first set b/c i wasn’t confident i’d get the last rep. after that, kept more tension, used a touch more bounce, and things were pretty groovy! happy with that.
15 lying tricep extensions @20×1 @ 12.5# (15-13-12-10) oh well!
15 btn PVC presses (immediately after LTE)
:05 ea side, single arm handstand hold at wall
20 alt heel drops on bench
5 rounds (20 min)
:50 assault bike @ 52-53RPM
