Pool Time.

Workout of the Day

– 20 min swim

I got a 8 mile march tomorrow with a pack, so I decided to take it really easy today.

My shoulders are killing me. The lunge/lunge/press complex sucked. Those are all my thought for today.

Heavy Front Squats.

Workout of the Day

(1) work up to 1RPM front squat

(2) every 40 secs for 10 rounds:
– 3 x front squat @ 205#

(3) 5 rounds:
– 8 DL @ 185#
– 30 step ups
– 5 x 1 arm sit-ups @ 25# (each arm)

(4) 3 rounds:
– 10 pushups with 1 hand on med ball (each arm)
– 10 pull-ups
– 10 db push press @ 2 x 45#

(5)  3 rounds:
– max kb swings @ 60# in 1 min
– rest 30 secs

Horseman training once again kicked my ass. I was only able to get up to 275# on the front squat. This shows my strength is going down, but I’m really trying to focus on getting my conditioning back up so I’m alright with that. My legs are toast after 30 front squats @ 205# and 150 step ups. This was a good workout to do before I head to the field and train for the two weeks. I’ll be back Labor Day weekend.

Still Got The Back Flip.

Workout of the Day

(1) work up to 1RPM hang clean

(2) 4 rounds:
– 400m run
– 90 secs rest

(3) 10 mins practice:
– handstand walks
– backflips

I tied my PR of 265# on the hang clean. I was able to get under 275#, but I couldn’t quite stand up with the weight. My hang clean max is very close to my max clean, so I know I’m not doing something right from the ground to the hi-hang. I need to keep working on my technique and try to get that corrected. I need to hit that 300# mark on my clean.

I did two attempts at max handstand walk. I was able to hit 17yds and 12yds. It was alright, but I really wanted to get at least 20 yds. The highlight of my day was doing back flips. It’s been a couple of months so I was a little shaky, but I made it happen.

Fat Bar.

Workout of the Day

(1) 1RPM deadlift with axle bar

(2) 5 rounds:
– 3 x DL @ 315# with axle bar
– 10 ring push-ups

(3) 5 rounds:
– 5 thrusters @ 95# with axle bar
– 10 pull-ups

(4) 5 rounds:
– 10 jumping squats with axle bar
– 10 one arm DB bench press @ 35#

First time doing a full workout with the axle bar and it was tough. I’m sure my forearms will still be burning tomorrow. This horseman program is a good shock to the body and it’ll whip me back into shape.
