My Week As Rx (Probably Scaled): January 23 – January 29

 

Strength

Deadlift – Find a 3RM

My previous 3RM was 375 lb. and I wanted to hit a new PR. With all the PR’s I’ve been setting, I wanted to see if I could reach a new one. As I added weight the deadlifts felt a lot heavier than I remembered. I haven’t done heavy deadlifts in a while and wasn’t sure if I could hit a new PR. I was able to lift 375 lb. for three but I failed at 395 lb. Hopefully after this cycle, I’ll be able to hit a new PR.

WOD

For Time – 6 Rounds, TC: 15 Minutes5 push press (135 lb.)

10 pistols
Run (200 m)

I had a great time doing this workout. It was hard and I almost hit the time cap but I felt great after. I was worried that the run was going to slow me down since we just did deadlifts. My hamstrings and lower back were tight but I was able to push through it. I wanted to keep a pace of a round every two minutes.

When the workout started, I was able to keep the workout to about 1:30 for the first two rounds. Afterwards, each round was around 2:00 – 2:30. The push press was manage able as well as the pistols. I was able to do the reps unbroken but I took some rest between each movement. The run was the hardest to finish but I got through it with a reasonable pace. I was short of the 12 minutes but I able to finish the workout in 14:15.

Lift Heavy and Level Up!
