Trophy Husband redux

I had planned on a different workout, but decided at the last minute to work out with the 9:45 am athletes. I good time was had by all me!

EMOTM for 30 minutes
— 1 dead-lift @ 75% of 1RM (275#)
— 2 HSPUs
— 3 chest to bar pull-ups
— 4 toes to bar

Yup, I just completed this workout a mere 3 days ago. I completed HSPUs as prescribed, i.e., not negative HSPUs. (Is that a double negative?) My goal once again was to complete all rounds unbroken.

I really had no idea how this was going to go today. As Steve D. and I were both dead-lifting 275#, we shared a bar. I began all (but the first) rounds at 10 seconds after the minute.

For whatever reason, dead-lifts felt lighter today. I nonetheless began grunting at the top of each lift. HSPUs went very smoothly today, and I had no  failed reps. Yup, full extension and my feet remained on the wall.

I used a inner bar on the pull-up rig for chest to bar pull-ups and toes to bar. Again, and for whatever reason, both pull-ups and toes to bar went smoothly. Again, no failed reps, and all rounds were completed with unbroken reps. I also immediately transitioned from pull-ups to toes to bar. That saved a considerable amount of time.

The following is round number and time:

1-27 (slowest round)
2-24
3-24
4-24
5-23
6-22
7-23
8-22
9-22
10-26*
11-23
12-24
13-22
14-22
15-22
16-22
17-22
18-23
19-23
20-22
21-22
22-22
23-21
24-23
25-22
26-22
27-21
28-23
29-22
30-22

I completed rounds much more quickly today than I did Thursday. Could it be because this felt more like a competition? Perhaps.

Total time = 11:12

That’s almost 3 minutes faster than previous time of 14:08.

*Someone got in my way and I couldn’t start HSPUs. And that’s okay.
