Snatch Grip High Pulls
Hatfield Overload Squats
Safety Squat Bar Pause Squats (2 second pauses)
Glute Ham Raises
27 Minutes of Stretching
Started off the workout with snatch grip high pulls. It has been a long
time since I’ve done any snatch based Olympic style lift so I made sure
that I did a lot of sets leading to my working weight to get form down.
Felt nice and easy if a bit weird on the shoulders. Hatfield squats
went well; none of the instability I felt last time I came back from a
deload week. All reps were fast and I feel the set of five was tougher
than the single. Maybe because the bar was on my back longer. Reps and
sets dropped on pause squats. Sticking point makes these feel slow but I
don’t feel like the weight is crushing me in the hole, even with the
increase in weight. From there, I went over to Ironmill to finish the
day. Glute ham raises were much tougher this time around as the pad for
the knees was fixed (it had been on backwards). Hard work for the
posterior chain but that is okay. After that, I went with sprints using
the heaviest keg available. I was working my best to be fast, sprinting
halfway down and back between the keg carries to simulate going back for
a second keg. Apparently, I got faster by about 2 seconds each run.
Finished up with abs per usual and called it a day.
