Wednesday's Workout

Five a.m. feels like eons ago...

Strength Skill:

Zercher Squats (3-3-1-1-1)

I matched my PR of 215 pounds (from back in December!), though my attempt at 225 failed. When my ankle is 100 percent, I'm definitely going to give it another shot.


3 rounds for time:
  • 400 meter run
  • 15 overhead squats (95lbs / 65lbs)
  • 10 toes-to-bar
I'm sick of not being able to run properly. Skipping is fun and all, but it's not the speediest way to get around.

Also, looking back, I wish I'd gone with the RXed weight instead of scaling down to 75. The overhead squats felt pretty good, and even though it would've taken me a lot longer to complete the workout, I'm confident I could have gone heavier.

Result: 12:02.
