Tu | The legs seemed to have recovered from Saturday’s sled-sprints. I really like this workout, it’s sneaky hard; begin anything by squishing your guts and making breathing awkward and I suppose that sets the tone for the rest of the work to be done.

W | Can I blame my long ass arms for sucking so much on the forward pressing? I know; excuses. Wednesday was a humbling workout for sure. And with some insights into how recovered I was during the warm-up, struggling to string the DUs together. Muscle snatches felt strong. Bench did not – right side slow to finish at fatigue set in. The Fast AF push-ups… eh, not so fast, but the most I could muster.

Th | Sneaked in a back squat PR! That made me feel pretty nice. Really sore from all the pressing. Subbed some hinging for the Rx squatting because my legs were jello from the first two sections. Focused on moving the KB with intention; are you gonna ask it, or tell it?
