No Cleaning

reasonIn a turn of events, I can’t do cleans for a bit.  My favorite and go-to lift.  But I can do shoulder to overhead (albeit at a light weight – no more than 45 pounds)!  It’s time to let my bicep become less inflamed and the dynamic movement of cleans is a no-no and I have to rest it for at least a week.  But I can do light weight shoulder to overhead which is kind of cool.  So my restrictions flip flopped so to speak.  Workout was:

A1. 5 TnG Power Cleans
A2. 5 Push Press
Build to a max for the above complex

B. 15min AMRAP
Run 400m
10 Deadlifts – you pick the weight
10 Pushups

I subbed 10 from the rack front squats and did 5 45# push presses (instead of cleans and building to a max).  At first, I was just doing 10 45# FS, but the last two sets I went up to 65, then 75.  Push press felt good, nice to start working those movements again.

Then it was the AMRAP.  I told myself that I was only going to do 200m run because I was afraid of my ankles hurting.  But once I started running, I just thought “Just keep running the entire 400 and see how it goes.”  I kept a good pace and even though I knew I’d be the slowest one, I was just happy to be running again.  I ended up being able to do 3+run+9 and ran 400m each time.

Tomorrow night, I’m headed out to see the Acro-Cats.  It’s a cat circus.  I’m not kidding.
