WOD 2 – In the afternoon…
100-150 meter hill sprints
Tried something a little different this morning for my deadlift day. Rather than diving into another progression of 5/3/1 I decided to do a few weeks of eccentric loading, working the movement from the top down and allowing me to put more weight on the bar than I otherwise would. Hopefully this will build some new strength and control through the movement. I was able to get up to 230 kg today for my top set, though I’d like to see better control through the bottom of the lift.
This afternoon I got back out to Nimbus Overlook for some hill sprints. Did 2 separate hills for a total of 3 sprints, each taking between 40 and 50 seconds. This was a max effort activity that, again, has no equal in difficulty. Depending on the weather, I’d like to start coming once a week to try to improve my times.
On another note, I must apologize for falling off of the video challenge for last month. I dumped my camera into the lake a few weeks back and haven’t replaced it yet. Hopefully I can rectify this situation soon and get back on the train. I’d still like to do a bystander workout, so until I do that will remain an open challenge for anyone to submit.
