High pulls, RDL's and a metcon


Yesterday was a long day!

I left the house at 8:15am, for work. It was pretty busy all day. I didn't get to the gym until almost 7:00pm.

It was dark, cold, freezing rain outside. I really had to psyche myself up to workout.

First I did High pulls 3x3@80%1RM
55, 65, 70

Easy, no issues.

Next, RDL's

I had a real issue with these last time. I did not have the form right. I'm supposed to do them
4x5@70%1RM of my DL which would put my last one at 147lbs

Well, I started way light on these so I could get the form right. I did

70, 90, 110 and 140

I'm getting the hang of these.

Finally time for the metcon. I saw Vanessa Sisson do this one and it looked fun. I mean gross.
4 rounds
250M row
10 burpees
Time 12:36

Wow. I had planned on using 75lbs for the OHS. No way. I did a few before the metcon and they felt really hard. Wtf??? I feel like I've gotten weaker on these. So, I used 65lbs.

I am so glad today is a rest day. AND a half day of work.
