Saturday, 5/6 12 Weeks Out

Yoke 2 x 45’, 195, 285, 375, 425, 465, 515

Sandbag Runs 2 x 45’, 130, 175, 175

Stone load – 114# to 63”

Stone load 75s to 48” – 175 x 1, 175 x 3

Prowler high & low – 315 x 3

Because of my competition last week, this is my first heavy events day in this program.  I wanted to see how my yoke was moving.  It’s been a long time since I’ve had more than 350 on my back.  I’m definitely rusty, but I made it up to 515.  It was a fairly slow 515, especially the first pass, but I tend to come back quickly on yoke. I was pleased.

I substituted sandbag instead of farmer walk since I just had a competition with farmers and they have been bothering my hip a bit.  I did two runs with the 175# and felt solid.  Not great, but solid.  The pick could have been better on the second run, but it wasn’t too bad.

I did not do so great on the stone.  The highlight was the 114# to 63”.  But, when I got to the heavy work, I was crap.  The first round I struggled with the pick on the 175, and only managed one rep. The second set, I recovered a bit and got 3.  I definitely need more work on stones.

We finished out the day with a heavyish prowler at 315. Three rounds and I was toast. Yoke tends to take a lot out of me, especially if it’s been a while.

I definitely have a lot to work on, but I’m feeling solid.
