Thursday 111229

Ricky Frausto Filed Under:
Rest Day

One of the best mob wods I've seen for internal rotation. Where does not having internal rotation hurt us? Well, let's see.... Snatch, clean, push ups, dips, muscle ups, chest to bar pull ups, and any where else where the arm must be internally rotated and/or in extension.

Remember, arm extension is when the arm is out in front and comes toward the body and even when it passes behind the torso. It's this behind the torso part that really affects people's movements.

  2. Worked snatch this morning. Warm up sets went fine, but missed 154 three times. Shoulders didn't want to go back. Threw logic out the window and jumped to 159. First 2 attempts felt good but couldn't lock the arms back. Gave it one last try and FINALLY hit it good. New PR by 5#.
    Got both of my goals I set during this last challenge.
    Can't wait to see how the post-challenge stuff goes on the 7th.
    Thanks for cheering me on 5AMers!

  6. was getting cranky from not working out. i'm such a junkie! anyway, couldn't stand it anymore, so did the following:
    5 rds
    50 DU
    15 OHS (15-ish lb. pry bar)
    10 pushups
    5 strict PU on basketball hoop (not full ROM)

  14. Today, I did unbroken back squats:
    30 reps at 154# and should have gone heavier as these were fairly easy

    3x5 press
    77#, 87#, and 97#

    No pain in my wrist with this movement, but it's still too tender to do pushups or cleans.

    3 rounds:
    800 meter run
    40 box jumps 24"
    340 feet farmer's walk (2 pd). It was 85 feet down and back twice each round.

    22:55. This wiped me out but it felt good to have done it.

    Earlier workouts this week:
    Christmas Day at my parents in the country: 2.7 mile run with 100 airsquats at the halfway point in
    26:00. My lab Sydney ran with me and beat me (in my defense she didn't do any airsquats)

    Monday in my garage:
    4 rounds:
    50 DU's
    25 KB swings (1.5 pd)

    9:38 (thought I was going to die); DU's were horrible first round, swings were unbroken first round then 15/10 each round after. No pain in wrist doing these.

    5 rounds:
    10 DL's at 154
    10 pullups


    DL's all unbroken, pullups unbroken first round only, rounds 4-5 were horrible as I had no grip left.. wrist felt fine though.
