Long day in the chair working through a certification. Had to get out and train even though I should be studying… and it’s cold… and dark…
1.) Strength: Squat Snatch
1 rep every 10 minutes
- 1-4: 115
- 5-8: 125
- 9-10: 135
These felt better as I went. It’s been forever since I’ve done snatch, and even longer since squat snatch. I felt like I had PLENTY of strength on these, but my catch was all kinds of off, which is why I felt better and better as I went I guess.
2.) “The Admiral”
- 20 Burpee Pull Ups
- 20 Front Squats 
- 20 Box Jumps [20″]
Time: 25:22 (aka, “who cares, I actually finished this!”)
I knew going into this I haven’t been conditioning enough for this, but I couldn’t help myself. Definitely feels good just to finish.
I broke the burpee-pull-ups and front-squats into 8-8-4 rep scheme mostly, although on the last round for front squats I went 12-8.
On the box jumps I did step-downs. Lets were so toast I just needed to keep chipping away.
The burpee pull-ups were bad, but frankly not as bad as straight burpees since the pull ups slow it down so much.
