Sunday, November 4
I completed 5X7 but can’t recall heaviest weight. Maybe 165? Dammit. I do know it wasn’t a PR (and that wasn’t my intent).
Cluster @ 95# + 5 barbell hops (forward, backward, forward, backward, forward)
This was miserable. I had completed 18 reps a few seconds after the 5-min mark so I set a goal to complete 36 reps. I did, but the struggle was real. That’s 180 hops with 72 of them being blind and backwards. Gah!
Strict & Unbroken HSPU
My goal was 11, as my PR was 10, and I achieved 12. You can say I’m an overachiever.
Monday, October 5
5 strict T2B
25 unbroken double unders

- Bend over and place hands on floor.
- Jump feet to strict plank.
- Mountain climber both legs.
- Grasshopper both legs.

Time = 3:56. No failed reps. Boom.
10-second headstand hold into 20-second strict plank
Time = 5:31
‘Twas a brief rest on my knees after plank and before starting headstand. I should write dialogue for gay porn.
Tuesday, October 6
Whilst not a tsunami, there was a blue wave. Thank god. The man is an embarrassment.
3 HPC + 3 PP + 3 BS + 1 behind the neck PP @65#; 15-second hang from pull-up bar at the start of each round
Time = 13:00
That’s 34 reps.
That was tougher than I imagined it would be. I did complete all rounds of barbell work without changing hand position or dropping barbell Boom.
Strict ring dips & SDHP @95#
Time = 6:40
Wednesday, November 7
Run 100m (50m up & back)
Immediately complete 3 unbroken deadlifts, beginning at 225 and increasing weight 10# each round
Thus, the last round was at 315. And the last rep felt like a 1RM attempt. “Stand up, lock your knees, squeeze your butt!” I should write dialogue for gay porn. Did I already mention that?
30 burpees (with pushup) + K2Es
I had completed 15 reps at 2-min mark and set goal to finish in 4 minutes. I worked consistently while increasing intensity and finished in 3:35. Because I’m just that good.
