Sunday and Monday

Today was a rest day. But here’s Sunday and Monday’s workouts.

Sunday I went to mobility and the kettle bell class.  It kicked my ass (the KB class).  I was able to do all of the movements, at lower weight for some of them.  Each movement was with two bells.

OTM 10 min: Even: 15 Deadlift (24#)  Odd: 10 Racked Squats (24#) – this one hurt my knees at first, so I put on my knee sleeves and all was well with the world 🙂
rest 2min
OTM 10 min: Even: 10 Pushup on Bells (5 ABMAT pushups) Odd: 10 Guerilla Cleans (24#)
rest 2 min
OTM 10 min: Even: 10 Seasaw Press (13# / 18#) Odd: 10 Russian Swings (24#) – I didn’t want to push too heavy on the press, but I got laughed at when I was doing 13#, so I bumped to 18#.  It was a good decision.

Monday started out crap-tastic and it continued for most of the morning.  Set the tone for my day and I wasn’t really looking forward to working out that night (I had planned to go to the 7:30PM class with Niko).  I ended up going, and it was a good thing.  Helped me clear my head and the workout just felt good.

A. 3 Hang Power Clean + 3 Push Press – work to a max of the complex in 15mins

B. 10min AMRAP
7 Deadlifts
7 Push Press
7 Box Jumps

I am still on restriction weight wise but not movement.  Another workout where I didn’t have to modify anything!  The highest weight that I was allowed to do was like 70% of what I think my max was.  I used 120# as a base and didn’t go higher than 85#.  My form felt amazing on both the hang cleans and the push press. I was really happy with it.  No pain.  Plan is to continue to work on perfecting my form before I go for the heavy maxes.

For part B, I opted to go with the BEG weight, which was 45#.  Cycling that many dead lifts and push-presses has been problematic for me and I wanted to be safe.  But the BIG news is that I actually did real box jumps and my ankle felt fine.  I jumped up and stepped down.  It was awesome and the workout was tiring, but it felt great.  Total score is 7+9.  Hip got a little tight on the deadlifts.  They are my least favorite weight lifting movement, hands down.
