Saturday, 6/3 8 Weeks Out
Yoke 4x (2 x 45’), 335, 335, 335, 335
Sandbag Runs 4 x 90’, 130, 130, 130, 130
Stone load triples to 56” – 8x 122 w/ 0:30s rest between sets
Updown/prowler finisher – 10/High, 9/Low, 8/High….
Well I ended Deload week early and decided to do the week one events day training today. I don’t think I need the extra day off, and then I can beef up the weights next Saturday.
The speed yoke felt really fast and I felt great under the bar. Sandbag work felt great, nice and easy. My picks have improved a bit, and my footspeed was solid.
I decided to do triples instead of doubles on the stone since I picked a light stone. I was loading to 56” so really working on my explosiveness. Those triples really smoked me out with such little rest.
I added a finisher that was harder than I expected. Ten updowns, then high handle prowler sprint at 135#, then 9 updowns, then low handle prowler sprint. Worked all the way down to one. It was a tough finisher and I was literally dripping with sweat.
A great first day of the new cycle. Looking forward to moving some weight this week.
