Wednesday's Workout

No babysitter on Monday meant no visit to the gym—which, in turn, meant missing the 1-rep max front squat and press workout. Thankfully, I made it to class this morning for deadlifts.

20 minutes to establish 1-rep max deadlift

  • 2 minutes max double-unders
  • Rest 2 minutes
  • 2 minutes max burpees
My back felt fine when I popped out of bed at 5:15 this morning, but 15 minutes into my deadlift sets, I started feeling my erector spinae seizing up again. I hadn't expected to best my deadlift PR, but I topped out well under it, crapping out at 275. It was probably for the best, but I'm not happy about it.

On the other hand, the double-unders felt okay, and the burpees were miserable but doable. Result: 137 double-unders and 34 burpees. Blargh.
