My Week As Rx (Probably Scaled): June 19 – June 25

 

Strength

Deadlift – 5×5 at 85% (355 lb.)

I haven’t been hitting my deadlift numbers this cycle. I haven’t been doing them consistently for the last few weeks and it shows. My 85% from my lifetime 1RM is 355 lb. I was only able to lift 325 lb. for 5. I’m also more cautious about deadlifts because of injury. I am not where I want to be but I am not in a rush to get there. Proper form will lead to progress eventually.

WOD

For Time – 9 Minute Time Cap

30 pull up
400 m run
50 thrusters (45 lb.)

This was a short workout but it was one of my favorites from the week. Pull ups were going to be the hardest movement but we would have some rest time on the 400 m run. I was not sure how well I would do on the thrusters but I was pretty sure I could do them in two sets, three at the most. My goal was to finish under seven minutes.

The pull ups went okay. I set a pace of about 5-10 reps a set and finished in about three minutes. The strict pull ups I have been doing at home are starting to pay off. The pull ups felt easier and I didn’t struggle as much. I also felt more control on descents. I should start doing more gymnastics accessory work at home. I was able to finish the run in two minutes but I took about 30 seconds of rest before I started the thrusters. My first set of thrusters were 20 reps. My shoulders started to give out and I switched to doing 10 – 15 reps per set. After resting a good amount of time between sets, I finished the workout at 7:15.

Lift Heavy and Level Up!
