My Week As Rx (Probably Scaled): January 9 – January 15

 

Strength

Back Squat – 4×2 at 90% (345 lb.)

I haven’t lifted this much weight since the last back squat cycle. It was a 4×2 but I was only able to complete two sets at 345 lb. The squats felt great, and I would have been able to finish if I had enough time. I feel very confident in my squat and hopefully I can set a new PR next week.

WOD

Fight Gone Bad – 3 Rounds, 1 Minute Per Station\

Wall Ball (20 lb.)
Sumo Deadlift High Pull (75 lb.)
Box Jump (20 in.)
Push Press (75 lb.)
Row (cals.)

Rest 1 min

It’s been over a year since doing this workout but I was determined to set a new PR. My plan for the workout was to at least complete 20 reps for each movement, it was a lofty goal. The first round started well but I wasn’t close to my 20 reps. I was able to at least get at least 15 reps on all the movements including the row. I finished the round with 81 reps total. The next two rounds were not easy. I was able to keep up with the 15 reps on each movement but failed to get more than 10 or 11 reps on the row. I was exhausted by the end of the workout but I was at least able to set a new PR. I set a new total at 225 reps which is an increase of 15 reps. It’s not a large number but hopefully I will be able set a new PR next time I attempt this workout.

Lift Heavy and Level Up!
