Workout of the Day
Another one in the books. Had a strong workout today, felt good, fresh and healthy. A great opportunity to workout with Greg Larsen, a phenomenal athlete and student of the game. Squats (Strength Day): worked up to heavy singles 315 335 365 385 405 deep in the hole squats. Felt great had more in the tank but this was a good place to stop. Had to film Sara's workout so my snatch workout became a simplified practice. Hang Power Snatch: worked up to a few singles 135 for 3 singles This is still such a raw movement for me. Definitely not neurologically programmed. I should spend more time practicing this and the clean jerk just to hammer in the motor pattern. Not big volumes but more quality practice. This is exactly what today was and I feel like I took a step forward. Greg offered a good tip with my knee position and this made the move much easier and more proficient. Military (Strict) Press: worked up to 3 singles 155 for 3 singles This is the first time in over 6 weeks. The reason is due to a strain I suffered being a dumb arse trying a muscle up (bad move on my part and I paid the price with a strained rotator cuff). So felt good to come back and do some light work and loading. Super set with Strict chest to bar tactical style dead hang pullups: 5 x 5 just added this back into the fray as well due to shoulder so again, positive! Box Jump: 38 inch Static squat hold (above parallel) 3 sets of 3 Super set with Banded Kettlebell Swings 24kg (blue band) 3 sets of 8 reps Finish off with gymnastic work 1 set of L-Sit Rings: 40 second hold (best ever) Handstand face the wall: hold for time and positional awareness 1 set of Bar Hang L-Sit: 35 second hold 1 Round of free standing handstand practice (able to stick 1 and hold for a number of seconds) Additionally: Sara kicked butt in her workout! Greg hit a Squat PR of 415 today! not bad on our first day squatting together!
