Day five, Monday, July 28
- Light 500m row
- PVC snatch progression - five each of: pressing snatch balance, heaving snatch balance, tall muscle snatch, scarecrow snatch, mid-hang muscle snatch, mid-hang snatch
- 10 minutes working the skill of your choice
I decided to focus on two pieces of equipment that I don't normally have: plyo boxes and a high pull up bar. I did a bunch of box-jump singles on the 38", with pretty good clearance, but not enough to feel comfortable going to 47". Then spent five minutes practicing the butterfly kip with full clearance for my feet, which I never have. The rhythm was tough to nail down.
- 3 rounds:
- Run 200m
- 20 DB thruster at 30#
- Run 200m
- 15 burpees
This one didn't look that bad on the white board, but it felt like getting kicked in the balls by sadness.
My fiancee was in town for the weekend and joined us for this workout, which was cool. This exchange happened following the workout:
GREG: Neill, what's up with Ana kicking your ass today?
NEILL: Why should today be different from any other?
GREG: Wow, not even married and he already knows the right answer.
