Went to the Sharks game last night, ate some pretty crappy food and only slept about 5 hours. Not the best for training on Friday, but I took a nap in the afternoon to get an extra hour or so.
This was a good session. The MUs felt great and I was very focused and performed well.
A. Muscle-up – 5 UB reps on the min for 8min (stop if you fail to complete 5 reps on the min)
I made it the whole way except the final rep of the 8th minute. I just tried to kick to hard instead of trying to be efficient and get a good hip pop. Video below:
B. 4″ Deficit Kipping HSPU – 5 x 3.3.3; rest as needed + 2min b/t sets
These went really well, no real trouble. Times in seconds were 28-21-21-21-24. Videos below:
C. HS Walking Practice – 15min
This went the best it’s ever gone. I know I still have a long way to go, but I’m getting a better hang of keeping a good body position and breathing. In the past I would try to breathe and I would get loose and fall. The videos of the 4 best attempts are below. The distances in feet are 70-48-50-30.
I got my ass kicked here. This workout was a lot harder than I expected. I felt some pretty serious fatigue early in round 3 and I knew I was in trouble. I think this was a result of the food & lack of sleep from the night before. Once I felt the fatigue I really started to lose the ICE. This was not my best showing for mental toughness. I totally gave in.
5 Power Cleans
Not much to say, kinda disappointed, but I guess that’ll happen from time to time, especially when you make poor decisions the night before. Score was 10 rounds + 16 reps. Video below:
Got some good sleep on Friday night. I chose to ride my bike for about 45-50 minutes along a local trail as my Z1 work. It was pretty fun and I got a good sweat going and could definitely feel the work in my legs when I was done. I covered just over 8 miles total.
