OK, there’s a difference in programming a sick volume because I think I should be able to handle it, and just being plain stupid when putting the different components together. Putting the otm cleans the day after a 5rm Squats was definitely a showing of the latter…
Want to be able to bench again, but even though incline version is a little nicer to my A/C joint, it’s still more a pain issue than strength issue that dictates how heavy I can go. None of the sets were heavy today.
Cleans otm was just not possible today, legs tired already after 2 rounds so decided to move around a bit and do them on Friday after a rest day instead. HSPU on the minute was also way worse than I was hoping for, but here I think it’s just because I suck at them atm.
Metcon was actually quite funny, I thought rx’d was 5 rounds so I ”scaled” it down to 3 due to the volume and my already destroyed legs, but then when I checked it actually was 3rft. The fact that the fastest guys on the blog beat me with about 2 mins actually don’t bother me since I basically set a pace I thought I could go unbroken and then did. Burpees was painfully slow throughout.
Rest day and needling tomorrow, actually looking forward to it!
