military press: 135×3, 155×3, 185×3, 195x2x3 I had to allow my form to break down a little into a push press on that one. I am probably going to have to us lighter weights for the next wave on the military press.
pullups: bw+25x4x5 I’m pretty happy with the pullup progression. I just need to make sure that my added weight is keeping pace with my weight loss. I didn’t bother to weigh today since I ate so much junk last night/this morning that I know my bodyweight was up. To add weight, instead of using my neck harness to hand weight around my neck or through my belt, I’ve just been tucking the skinny part of a dumbell into my weight belt, which I can do since it’s a double x.
conventional deadlift: 405×1, 405x3x3 (belt) My belt is fitting hella loose. I need to drill a new hole in it to accomodate my waifish waist and hawt abz.
hang snatch 95# x 15 reps
sumo deadlift high pull 45# x 25 reps
Four rounds for time
This is what I’ve decided to call this workout, since it’s a smorgasbord of pulls. Last time it took me nearly 28 minutes, today I got it done in 22:24, which is a 20% improvement. Go me! I could definitely tell I was working harder/faster. I was bumping right up to my lactate threshold. I kind of want to just blast through it and vomit so I can get it out of the way. I figure once I upchuck I’ll know how hard I really need to be working.
My glutes and hamstrings are very sore afterwords, which I take as a good sign. Ghetto booty here I come! My traps were not as painfully pumped/sore as they were last time, but close.
