In 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
10 Deadlifts – you pick the weight
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.
